    This 'Make in India' initiative will give a boost to Indian Defence industry in the same way as Russian cryogenic engines and sharing of technical knowledge boosted Indian Space Technology.

    The Initiative will fast track the modernisation of the defence forces that had gone into a 10 year doldrums like impotency under the UPA regime

    What most do not realise or deliberately sensationalise is India's defence spending.

    The defence spending is not just for a lark. It is based on the active threat that the country is embroiled in and the requirement of hardware to protect itself in this 'active and hostile environment'.

    Hence, it has to be more than countries like Germany, Canada and the like which are not operating in 'active and hostile' environments, There lies the nub and the rub.
