    India-China 2020 Border conflict

    The problem is across Indian Institutions, including forces, of 're-inventing the wheel'. They simply want to relearn past lessons, waste time and then move ahead. Luckily for us, some of our adversaries are also of similar nature but their systems being less "democratic" makes it easier for...

    Well, to many I will appear to be swinging ... what can I do .. I post seeing the trend that I do .... my personal opinion comes out in posts like - babus will be the bane of this nation .... :)

    Not sporting!!! Not sporting at all ..... leaking private confidential discussions!!! You were not supposed to share that!!!!!! Won't tell you stuff next time ...... And you didn't even tag ..... and here, just when I trusted you to know what I was upto.... :( On a serious note: Facts, most...

    That is plain shooting off the hip - earlier claims of move of RR Force from North Kashmir (which has RR units along LC in BG-CI role across one of the most difficult terrains in terms of topography & vegetation :doh: ) now - Victor Force (comprising one of the hottest areas alongwith Lolab...

    India-China 2020 Border conflict

    I doubt anyone who was sane has ever said that we could not patrol up to any of our traditional patrolling points from 2013 onwards and this was "legacy" issue. The truth of the matter is that the issue is indeed a legacy issue in the sense that since 2002, PLA has intermittently blocked our...

    You can talk all about change in momentum etc ... I can actually write an awesome Tharoor like article if you commission me to, on how things are actually looking up. But sadly, this rosy garbage has irrelevance when your strategic opportunities and objectives are lost because of your own...

    Nope. EAM is doing precisely what he has been instructed to do by the PM. Makes no sense. As for why he is meeting, politics is art of possibility.

    2002. Indian Army, IAF were in a different league at the time by then ..... we had domination of Airspace - against both PAF and PLAAF. And Mr Vajpayee recognized Tibet as part of China that day - formally. If Mr Modi "inherited" a depleted Airforce, then the actions of his Govt to address...

    India-China 2020 Border conflict

    No aggressive action will be initiated by India and China does not need to. They have "secured" their interests over CPEC road by creating a "friction" point with India to keep discussing over the next 3 years. Till then, there will be a sustained attempt to corner to the dispensation in power...

    I will quote my self: "Army has been asked to look at the broader picture" This was before the Pangong Tso pull back. Mr Nehru 2.0, our current PM, made a mistake. Depsang and other places should have been sorted out prior to Pangong Tso. Now, the refrain of "legacy" issues is being...

    The proverbial shit is yet to hit the fan. We are going to suffer .... peak somewhere mid June or so. Arunachal - fair enough. Depends on what the GoI wants at the time when we really need to pass the "test". And what the top commander there does. I do not expect PLA to do anything over the...

    On a side note, twitter handle shut down as it was becoming pointless. Not because of being in 'crosshair' etc etc. No secrecy has been breached at any time by me in any post. Including the rather pre-emptive indication of moves. That was like a challenge :) Things evolved, so I just shut it...

    Another way of looking at things - creating too many fronts. COVID wave and rationale for conduct of 5 phase elections in West Bengal - an example. Not exactly the brightest of ideas. If I was a Congress strategic thinktank (if they had one that is), I would keep mum over every silly stuff...

    Trade off. Our position in South (& then North after occupying additional features above their ingress) was such that an offensive by us would have left the road to Rutog open. Take a look at the map, it, the ramifiction, shall become evident. And your last para is answered by my lamentations.

    Pray, do educate me as to what autonomous surveillance equipment has been left there which won't need hunan intervention for ensuring power supply & replacement of batteries (whose performance is directly proportional to Temperatures) ? This tech am not aware of. And exactly how do you propose...
