Reconstructing A Military- Industrial Complex

| | | Share |

It is ironical and somewhat heartbreaking that a nation that set up the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in 1942 with 37 laboratories and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in 1958 with 52 laboratories is still so heavily dependent on foreign imports of military equipment. We are the largest importer of military equipment in the world and this reflects in the state of preparedness of the Indian Armed Forces (the Indian Air Force Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa has recently described the situation as playing a football match with a sevenmember team when eleven are needed).

The World In Flux

| | | Share |

Over the decades, regime change operations have happened in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Iraq and Syria. With the consequential flood of refugees from these countries into Europe and even Australia and America itself, the neo-colonialist nations have come to realise that the chickens will come home to roost.

First, Pakistan and then China called on India to participate in the creation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor connecting the Chinese province of Xinjiang with the Gwadar seaport on the Balochistan coastline that dominates the North Arabian Sea through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. With India refusing to commit geostrategic harikiri by joining the project, PoK announced that it would only be formally annexing the territory in Jammu and Kashmir that it had illegally occupied in 1948 and designating it as the “Fifth Province” of Pakistan.

Indian Women Have Come A Long Way

| | | Share |

Post-Independence, progress has been seen in all spheres of the Indian society but the most commendable evolution has been in the overall reformation of the Indian women in these 70 years of freedom. There was a time till 1950s when girls and women were not allowed to study. But soon established women in India like Sarojini Naidu, Mahadevi Verma, Vijayalakshmi Pandit, Bikaji Cama and others became inspirational to others. Barriers were broken and the girls started getting enrolled in schools and later in colleges and universities that set them on the path of mental development that was to pay dividends in decades to come.
