    3 questions...

    Can Indian Army retake PoK in the near future? Technical ability...

    Can Indian political leaders at any point approve retaking PoK in the near future? Diplomatic ability...

    Can & should India ever think of reclaiming Aksai Chin, Khurnak Fort, Demchok & Nelang regions?

    the answer to all is no.
    not based on emotions but the present policy. the only area of interest in J&K in the pakistani area is karakoram highway which connects china and pakistan. its highly sensitive and on the chinese side its highly superior but on pakistani side its equally poor.
    its planned that if the indian ocean become hostile for chinese cargo then the ports in pakistan will act as next stop for chinese ships. the cargo will go on from pakistani baluchistan or karachi to china via this highway and this highway only will help pakistan get supplies from china in case of war.
    this is the reason there was hurry to make it advances when india pak tension soared in 2008 in the aftermath of 2008 mumbai attack.
    but to our relief the corrective measures taken on time fetched us SIACHIN and the hilltop that overlooks this karakoram highway which is an option for china but lifeline for pakistan in case of emergency.
    when we are already at the apex overlooking the highway it wont be a problem for us to monitor or stop joint sino-pak trade of weapon.

    the chinese posters here dont portray the chinese policy makers who are more concerned with the pacific region and wants to restrict the movement of india into the pacific theater after attaining the due power.

    i can go on telling you more about the entire political situation involving india china and pakistan but i think i have answered you question as of now

    Technically? Yes. At great cost of lives. If its capability that you are talking about, IA can and will do it after it gets te order from the political class.

    Can any India leader take a decision to take PoK? No. Nuclear deference works with them.
    But any war that starts after a terror attack on India and India goes for Cold Start, we could leverage some on the negotiating table.

    We can forget about getting anything from China.

    $12 billion. What is devious is that wiki deletes the name of Jammu and Kashmir from tits article on GDP by states sourcing Indian data.

    Anyone in the know, report this or please add the GDP of JnK in the article.

    State Domestic Product of India 2011-12 | State-Wise GDP 2011 | District GDP of India | State-wise Population 2011 | VMW Analytic Services

    List of Indian states by GDP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The thing between India and China is that there will be talks and talks and talks and may be a war and more talks and status quo might remain with whoever is holding whatever getting to keep it and a treaty signed.
