DSA IS AS MUCH YOURS, AS IT IS OURS! (June 2018)

| | | Share |

Even as Palestinian refugees demand their right to return to native lands, and are massacred in the process, the Syrian crisis remains the focal point of events in West Asia. It almost seems that the crisis has been deliberately dragged on for so long so as to suit the interests of certain countries. In the process, thousands of innocents have lost their lives, priceless assets lost, antiquities stolen or damaged beyond repair—a country seemingly at war with itself. But all is not as it appears to the casual observer, for there are wheels within wheels at play.

DSA is as much yours, as it is ours! (MAY 2018)

The Government of India has announced the formation of a new body to oversee the entire gamut of defence and national security for the country. The fresh development is that it includes steps taken earlier by previous attempts at policy analysis and implementation, and it also features an innovation in having the National Security Advisor as the lead player in the new structure. The NSA will now head a new body called Defence Planning Committee that includes the Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee, the Service Chiefs, and the Secretaries of Defence, Foreign Affairs and Expenditure from the Ministry of Finance. An interesting feature of this new body is the simultaneous creation of four sub-committee to focus on policy and strategy, plans and capability development, defence diplomacy and the defence manufacturing ecosystem. This is a fairly holistic approach to matters connected with defence and national security. Especially at a time when senior military officers have been airing their grievances from public platforms about the slow pace of modernisation afflicting their services. This is a departure from the past when military officers were seldom seen and never heard. The crisis must, indeed, be serious.

Global climate change talks are proceeding at a pace not seen in many years. There seems to be a greater earnestness now than there has ever been. Paris and then Marrakech! Eagerness to come to identifiable and implementable goals is the paramount objective. At least so, it appears in public estimation. So when they talk climate and it’s changing nature, they invariably focus on to the most apparent aspect of this phenomenon, the oceans and glaciers. While the Himalayan glaciers are losing water rapidly into rivers to which they give birth, the Arctic and Antarctic glaciers are melting fast enough to see rising seas and oceans as the most fundamental climate change problem.

There is something common in the requirement that will make up the future soldier and policeman. Strange as it may seem, because the job profile and the professional role of both these essentials of national security are at such variance to each other. The soldier is, after all, the sword arm of the state, the last option, resort of the government. While the policeman is the essential public interface with the people, the one who ensures that faith is not lost in governance. And that, there is no breakdown in the moral authority of the state.

Anniversary issues have generally been occasions to rejoice over progress made, recount events and developments, and prepare for what is yet to come. And it is something largely followed here as well. But this anniversary issue is different for it comes in the wake of a deep tragedy, followed upon by an announcement of some military significance. So, the anniversary mood is somewhat tempered, as it ought to be in the circumstances. After all, no one can be ignorant or indifferent to the prevailing national mood.
