Porous Borders and the Extreme Security Climate of India

| | | Share |

Borders are a hallmark of a nation-State. The concept of borders grew out of a human urge in primitive man (and even animal instincts) for secure territorial control. It was out of this innate urge that civilisations within territorial limits and clear jurisdiction were born and flourished.

Terrorism or Political conflict?

| | | Share |

Battlelines have become blurred. Rare are the occasions when the Armed Forces of one nation confronted the Armed Forces of another in clearly defined geographical limits.

Nuclear Weapons: The Dark Forboding

| | | Share |

The word ‘nuclear’ in itself has an ominous ring around it. The first and only use of atomic bombs was against the Japanese in World War II in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It has left an indelible stigma on the conscience of mankind that such a usage must never ever be allowed again. As I am writing this, the current scenario being created by North Korea on the usage of nuclear bombs is very disturbing for nations across the globe. Its bragging bravado and past instances of reckless behaviour have put the world on the edge.
