Diwali Spirit

| | | Share |

It was heart-warming to see Prime Minister Narendra Modi among soldiers guarding the very difficult Himalayan frontiers on Diwali day. He put on record the sentiments of a nation of 125 crore Indians of appreciation and total support for the men (and an increasing number of women) who lay their lives on the line to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of a nation that has been a target of external aggression from the very moment of its creation in 1947. How many national leaders have ever done this during the entire tenure as a free nation? But PM Modi made it a point to do what he has been doing since his years as the Chief Minister of Gujarat. He has stood with them for one big reason and the reason is that he being the leader of the whole nation, he was with them in the task of national defence and is very appreciative of the sacrifices the men and women of the Armed Forces have to make to defend the nation.

 

Team DSA is delighted to see some very calculated stepping stones by the current government under the leadership of our Prime Minister Modi. Notable was the simultaneous visit of new Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to the Tri-Service Andaman and Nicobar Command based in Port Blair. At the same time, Home Minister Rajnath Singh spent time with the paramilitary forces and the Central Armed Police Forces under his jurisdiction.

Diwali marks a turning point in the solstice. From now on, the Himalayas will see temperatures falling below freezing and avalanches and snowdrifts will add new dangers for the personnel guarding the frontiers. The nation is totally united on issues of national security and territorial defence. In our overview of the global scenario on the defence and security front, we see that the bullying by China has abated somewhat after the Doklam confrontation; but North Korea is becoming a nuisance for the whole humanity. Thus, India has decided to strike a balance with the US and Russia and our subject experts have shared their sophiscated views on this balancing factor in this edition.

Jai Hind!
