Defence Industrial Base - The Way Forward

| | | Share |

With the world fast levitating into the Fourth Generation Warfare syndrome, developing nations like India are on the anvil to bolster and toughen up their National Security. Threats and challenges have increased multifold and there is an urgency to pay attention to the discrepancies caused due to years of neglect in procurement of modern military wherewithal for our armed forces. India has been fortunately blessed with an unusual progeny of warriors in our Forces who have demonstrated that they can deal with enemies appropriately with ‘whatever we have’ ... as in Kargil!!

Reflections for New Direction

| | | Share |

As a conscientious and responsible citizen of India I was shattered and very disturbed by the 26/11 terrorist attack and mayhem at Mumbai. More so by the fact that India was caught unawares and totally unprepared for such an onslaught. 26/11 triggered a chain of thoughts and cerebrations along with my friend and former member of Indian Parliament Manvendra Singh that culminated in the idea of creating a platform that will facilitate dissemination, discussion and debate on defence and security of India and the world. Thus was conceptualised and born DSA.

Integrity of National Security

| | | Share |

In the absence of a documented National Security Doctrine, we the citizens tend to interpret the elephant of SECURITY according to our own diverse perceptions.

Wars and Lessons

| | | Share |

No one needs war; but when it happens, it generates an inexorable momentum of its own. India, the Golden Bird, has been a victim of foreign assaults from time immemorial and the incursions have continued even after the moment of our emergence as a sovereign, independent nation. It is significant, that in the five wars that we have had to fight after independence in 1947, some part of the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir has been involved, as Pakistan and China, singly and in collusion, have sought to delink it from the rest of India. Kargil in 1999 was the last such manifestation. Hence the rationale to bracket wars and locale in this edition of DSA.

Making INDIA Self-reliant in Defence

| | | Share |

Let us trail back to 1950s, when the then Prime Minister of India made announcements for industrialisation in all the sectors. The avowed intention was a rapid growth of the country. As with every other sector in the interactions and spinoffs that they entail, Defence too plays an integral role in the industrialisation and growth of a nation state. The invasion of Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistan immediately after partition underscored the reality of our vulnerabilities. But it was the Chinese aggression of 1962 in the high Himalayas that drove the leadership to give due importance to the multifarious requirements of the Indian armed forces.
