Indo-Russian Entente : Reinventing The Past Glory!

| | | Share |

Though the Indian economy is struggling to establish prosperity for its people it is also a fact that in spite of this struggle India’s economy is far more resilient than many countries even in Europe where hardships have forced governments to collapse. The Eurozone, for instance, has been in a state of crisis from 2009 rolling from a banking crisis to sovereign debt squeeze and bailouts of one kind or another. India on the other has, by and large weathered the international crises sparked by high fluctuations in oil prices and, as during the Asian economic crisis earlier, it remained an island of relative economic stability.

Time for Chanakyan realpolitik

| | | Share |

"Never trust your enemies, be alert on all their moves even if they pose to be friendly with you".

India’s greatest geostrategic thinker and the ideal and inspiration of the Defence and Security Alert (DSA) team – Chanakya – has only one contemporary legend Sun Tzu of China whose treatise Art of War is of perennial contemporary relevance. How many Indians know about them? I am sure not even 5 per cent of the total population knows about Chanakya and may be hardly 1 per cent is aware about Sun Tzu in our country. Our people are ignorant about these world famous great thinkers who changed the entire gamut of the socio-political situations of their times with their thoughts and their edicts and we can see that their thoughts are perhaps even more relevant to the geopolitics of today.

What happened last week in the Himalayas was a retaliation by nature which has been tortured over the past few decades in the name of development. It is not that it has not sent out signals of terrestrial stress over the years but we have never paid any heed to the alarums and signs that the ecology was disturbed and distressed. Finally it happened. And nature took its revenge in a manner so total that it is unbelieveable. The sight of a basketball court submerged in silt till the hoops told of how much nature relieved itself of the trauma of ecological degradation. All in minutes. The cloudburst shattered the last elements of cohesive existence and mountainsides just melted into a slurry of mud and rocks of all sizes taking everything called habitat along with it. Human beings were like flotsam in the turbulent waters and survival was not possible for anyone who fell into such waters.

We are today witnessing a geopolitical transformation from a world where one super power dominated the globe after the collapse of the Soviet Union under the rigours of the cold war. Geopolity is shaping up into what many peoples of the world hope will become a multipolar configuration.  Given the strength of its youthful population and a vibrant economy India stands centrestage in this evolution.

Publisher View on Maoism: Militrisation of the Conflict

| | | Share |

In May 1967, Charu Mazumdar and Kanu Sanyal started an agrarian uprising in West Bengal against the atrocities of the landlords on the villagers which actually has turned out to be an unremitting menace in the last few decades and the situation has become perilous in vast swathes of our country. The small local problem against a few of the local landlords has mutated into a movement that has engulfed large parts of the Indian peninsula. It has grown in proportions far beyond anything its progenitors had envisaged in 1967.
