Honour Our Warriors-They Keep The Nation Safe

| | | Share |

Security and defence of any country is the most important responsibility of any government and the people of the land. It is the safety and security provided by the armed forces that raises the morale of the nation as a whole and earns it an exalted position among the comity of nations. Whatever may be the financial or social status of any individual, everyone needs security and the armed force personnel pay a high price to provide this safety and security to the people.

Usually the price being paid by our armed forces every day at many different points on the borders with our neighbours has been so high and so consistent that the public at large tends to take their sacrifices for granted. The dangers posed by geography and enemies bent on mischief demands that they be alert 24X7. They are separated from their families for a very large portion of their tenures in service and they have to depend on the goodwill of the people to ensure that they have no cause for worry about the well-being of their kin. What they ask in return is that their sacrifices be respected because it is the idea of India as enshrined in the Constitution adopted on 26 January 1950 which is celebrated as Republic Day that they are dutybound to uphold and protect.

It is unfortunate that their sacrifices and their passion is not fully appreciated as is perceived in the shortages experienced in the officer cadre whose credo it is to lead from the front.

After Independence, there have been many efforts by the various governments to shape Indian nationalism based on the sacrifices of our soldiers. The rationale for the creation of the National Cadet Corps was to install a cradel for recruitment to the armed forces by giving young boys and girls in schools and colleges an opportunity to become acquainted with the ethos and requirements of the armed forces. It has not lived up to expectations. The failure to attract talent to thea rmed forces smacks of an absence of commitment to the defence of the nation and a lack of respect for those who have chosen to join a totally voluntary institution out of love for the country. This is pathetic. It is high time that the nation shows due respect tot he jawans and officers of the armed forces. This can best be done by joining them in thed efence of the nation.

I believe that this is the most important factor required to be immediately taken into account by all of us for a strong, developed and progressive nation on the globe and set an example for all. This is quite doable. Just strong will-power is required and we all have that, just encouragement and inspiration are required to flow.

This edition is dedicated to the Indian Army which is one of the best armies on the globe and which has set a lot of examples for the other military forces. We, at DSA, congratulate and salute the entire Indian Army on the occasion of Army Day.

We are sorry to inform about the sad demise of Shri Shyam Sundar ji (1.09.1927 - 28.12.2019), Founder of Prabhat Prakashan and Defence and Security Alert (DSA). Shri Shyam Sundar ji’s sudden and unexpected demise is an irreparable loss to our organisation and family. We pray to almighty to give us strength to bear this loss and continue our commitment to take his legacy ahead.

Jai Hind


Manpower and Technology to Propel India’s Maritime Outreach

| | | Share |

Today the entire globe is governed by man and machine. Their combination has created wealth and empires through the ability to project military power beyond one’s periphery. Since the discovery of the internal combustion engine, man has created technologies that have brought radical changes in lifestyles and existence through the digital revolution to the current age of artificial intelligence and virtual reality. Ironically, we are at a point where machines are replacing man!


Multilateral Cooperation:Key To Peace and Progress

| | | Share |

From Brexit to vicious trade wars, geopolitics has acquired an enervating flux worldwide. Even as Europe which coalesced around the idea of a European Union since the 1950s and became the epitome of multilateral cooperation and an example to be emulated for the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi- Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC), South Asia Co-operative Environment Programme (SACEP) and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), there are signs of a deliberate attempt to break any momentum towards multilateral cooperation.


Fly High

"Fly Fly Fly High And Higher: Not just like birds but like IAF” This is what every kid, teenager and the young mind in India thinks and wants to imitate after the Balakot air strike conducted by the Indian Air Force a few months back. I personally feel that after the Kargil War, it is the first time that so much has been in the media on the air strike that everyone salutes our IAF and its officers who conducted this under the guidance and vision of the senior policy and decisionmakers in the Indian government. This is probably for the first time that every common man including the young minds talks about this air strike which has added spice and has pepped up the debate on defence and security related issues.


US-Iran Clash: Another Oil Crisis For India?

| | | Share |

After the attainment of independence, India has been pursuing a multi-dimensional development game plan to bring happiness and prosperity to its people. For macro development, the most important was to provide the best roads and automobile industrialisation within the country. To keep the nation moving smoothly forward, it was necessary to explore for oil within the country all the while ensuring that demand for fuel was supplemented by supply by imports from extant oil-producing nations like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, USA, Iran, Iraq and Venezuela among others. The growth of the economy depended largely on how that demand-supply chain was managed when both pricing and supply were disrupted by geopolitical upheavals.
