There was a poll couple of years back, apparently 60% or brits want colonialism back....
This dream will come true , soon they will be colonized by Asians
After the Brexshit no wonder if the Scotts vote for a seccession from Union within a decade! U.K is screwed for good. Add the rising troubles from migrant communities.
Not at all surprising. The first thing they always say us build toilets. When one shows them the stats for toilets they start abusing. Just a bunch of pathetic people who lost there importance a long time ago.
These days their “aid” to India ranges between 40-50 million $, this is out of around 15 billion $ total aid budget.
In all probability they are spending it on Lutyens media and JNU scholarships.
yet they behave as if entire Indian space program, indian defense forces, SoU, Every major infra development all run on their 40 mill "aid".
Brits are the most low information pathetic hypocrites in the world.
I say if and when our space station gets built, our guys should use British made toilet papers on the station and give it full publicity with a nice smile.
Only then they will understand what their “aid” is worth...

i know I am going a bit off
And then we must humbly thank them for providing us toilet papers and say to the media they did what they can do best.
We never either took any aid for past 2 decades nor demanded any reparations.
We are a net donor of aid, not recipient. England aids NGOs and Christian missionaries, likes of Amnesty and GreenPeace who are responsible for troubles in India. They officially call it expenditure in spreading "religious tolerance".
Lately, we have gone hard on these NGOs as well. We just didn't ban British funding outright to not worsen diplomatic relations.
dear...the CSS is open to the world . the chosing of international experiment payloads on TianGong Space station has been on for years...
just yesterday , we saw the results...lol..https://spacenews.com/international-experiments-selected-to-fly-on-chinese-space-station/
the current problem is the launch vehicle.
and Italian seems to be more active , an independent module capsule is highlighted.
ISRO is planning to use 4th stage of PSLV rockets known as PS4 stage as small space experiment lab.
If they go successful in this direction it will be a big boost to our scientific endeavor in a limited budget.
Announcement of Opportunity (AO)for Orbital platform
IAF gets to work, begins picking the Indians who will go to space on ISRO’s Gaganyaan
The Indian Air Force (IAF) has begun the process of shortlisting 10 potential astronauts for the country’s maiden manned space mission ‘Gaganyaan’. Of the 10, three, including a woman, will make the cut for the mission expected to be launched by 2022.
the candidates include test pilots and flight engineers.
“The potential astronauts, including those who have volunteered, will undergo tough medical tests that will be more stringent than that for fighter pilots,” a source said, adding that much of the focus will be on “psychological prowess”.

Announcement of Opportunity (AO) for Sounding Rockets
A platform for your experiments
Probably going to run a sounding rocket program too like JAXA did with S-series.
sorry, i do not think that is correct.
the poll was re the brits view on colonialism and not on whether they want colonialism. two totally separate issues.
i think the indian govt ( govt and not ngo's ) was still receiving aid from the british govt till around when modi came to power. stopped after that ( do not know exact year ).
The ngo aid and some technical aid continues till date--around £50 million worth per annum.
The ngo aid will be whittled down to only the genuine ones; the technical aid in certain enterprises is good for both countries.
could you please provide reference to 'expenditure in spreading religious tolerance"?
Care to provide reference. I shadily remember that Indian government stopped receiving aids since early 2000s.
It varies from few millions to $1.5 billion per annum.
However, it amounts to nothing and doesn't make any different against budget of government of India.
First, this small amount of aid amount to nothing. As Indian government doesn't have any foreign source of funding except banks like ADB or IMF, this aid most obviously is transferred to small organizations. We know a couple named Amnesty India and GreenPeace. The other groups are missionaries. Transfers to their accounts too are accounted as aid.
I don't have to specify either how "genuine" they have proved. British aid is nothing but an enforced foreign funded propaganda. They even continued it during sanctions after stripping us off from global financing bodies.
And how "good"? It's only British media that continues to shout everything India does and quotes it's aid which amounts to nothing. Go through British papers and forums and check the comments. They believe that they are funding all the Indian defence and general research projects. In fact, they even say Indian GDP is growing because of them.
The same line of funding "genuine" NGOs which will be "good for both countries" is same from British delegation.
However, the utilization of aid has solely been proved to fool masses of UK and creating instability in India.
One more fact, British don't fund enterprises in India. Indian enterprises don't need that either. India is largest foreign investor in UK.
Not original I have at the moment.
Funny again, they believe that they passed on aid to Indian government and we built statue from it.
No, both aren't different context in anyway. On their "view on colonialism" 60% of them favoured it and hence wanted it back.
It complies with general observations as well. They are in a nostalgia of empire and obsessed with rising colonial countries.
Orbiter reached launch port, SDSC SHAR Sriharikota on 15th June. Vikram Lander (including Pragyan Rover) was flagged off from URSC, Bengaluru yesterday and will reach SDSC SHAR today.
the second Lunar Science Meet was organised at ISRO HQ during June 13 – 14, 2019
and brought together 60 scientists and researchers from various research institutions, universities, colleges, ISRO centres and laboratories. Data analysis methodology of four Orbiter payloads, such as Infrared Spectrometer, Synthetic Aperture Radar, X-ray Spectrometer and Mass Spectrometer covering the steps involved in converting the payload data to science products was discussed in detail, by payload teams. The seven thematic science working groups, presented their plan to utilise data from multiple Chandrayaan-2 payloads. Working group members discussed within their groups and cross-group interactions were also enabled on both the days.
During the science meet, the Indian lunar science community was also briefed about the future lunar program which is envisaged as a joint ISRO – JAXA lunar polar exploration mission.
As I predicted
The Department of International development ( DfID ) papers state that govt aid was stopped in 2015.
The same papers state that £52 million in 18-19 and £42 million in 19-20 is for 'technical expertise' and to create jobs both in India and UK.
I agree that certain trash media, basically tabloids ( The Sun etc ) do play to the gallery and Rule Britannia, but one does not take them seriously. Some conservative MP's in the past have brought up this issue as well. India gets sucked in the wash because the foreign aid prog is supposed to be 0.7% of GDP. That is a huge amount of money. And UK is hurting at the moment. The socialist state cannot sustain itself. There is anger and frustration at lack of money for old age care, the NHS, mental health, pensions etc. What better example to whip up sentiments than portray a picture of a space power like India being given aid? Politicians are the same everywhere-scum. They will do anything to further their nest.
The muslim lobby is very strong even though they have faced terrorism themselves. Labour Party would suck up to anyone, esp muslims. So you won't hear much about aid to certain muslim countries even if they are rich. Pakistan is a beggar anyway-least said the better.
I will still digress with you re colonialism--the millennial and the previous generation have no interest in it and some are apologetic about it
Re aid being used for nefarious purposes and proselytization, of course it was. I do not disagree with you. I was hoping that you would have some article to nail it on the head. My query was in hope and not disagreement.
