DSA is as much yours, as it is ours!

Central Asia has for many reasons been regarded as the gateway to India, geography being merely one of them. Through history it has of course been the route from which most invaders came. Over the last almost thousand years Turkic invaders came to India from the centre of Asia. Driven by the tales of untold riches that India possessed these nomadic tribes drawn from the various warring Turkic clans came to India and never really left. They got integrated, right down to food and language, into the vast social fabric of India. Even the last of them and the longest rulers amongst them, the Mughals, became Indianised. And like all of those before them, vanished from the throne and power.

The single biggest threat to India and its national interests has been terrorism. In some form or the other this has been a truism since the middle of the 1950s. Insurgent movements in the north-eastern states began what has become a serious and widespread problem well into this century. Almost all of the north-eastern states have been afflicted by this ailment at some stage or the other. Insurgent groups spread across the states and also into neighbouring countries, be it China, Bangladesh or Myanmar. But there is a difference to what is now happening across many countries of the world and more specifically in the heart of the western Asia.

Even as the services sector has provided immense benefit to the country, the unrealised dream of India as a manufacturing power holds back the country from fulfilling its true potential.

Entering its second decade of being India's premier technology showpiece, Aero India has also emerged as the largest show of its kind in Asia. Not that India is the largest aviation market, or aero technology provider, or even an aircraft production giant. None of these apply to India, as yet anyway. Despite all these factors missing, India has succeeded in pushing Aero India to the top of the blocks of aviation shows. The numbers are not staggering as yet, but they're nevertheless impressive. At the last edition of the biennial event more than 100,000 people attended. Good figure for a specialised technology intensive event. But not enough given the scale of India's potential and emerging manpower talents.

The single, undeniable, underlined and enduring, message from the 2014 General Election is that of change. All other factors can be debated endlessly. But the fact that the country wanted change, in enormous numbers, is incontestable. That message of change must now be taken to its logical end, in every direction and department of government. It is the yearning of the citizenry of India and has been repeated in every state election since the momentous General Election of 2014. So it is only appropriate that the message of change be absorbed by the government and be reflected in its actions and decisions.
