" is in Indian interests to maintain good relations with whoever is in power in Myanmar to ensure stability in insurgent stricken north eastern states."

Definitely, India was very idealistic in the 90s and early 2000s, by totally boycotting Myanmar. It didn't help at all, while China increased its presence in Myanmar, and insurgency continued in the North East. India is doing the right thing now. There is a direct bearing on India's security and sovereignty, not something far way that India dislikes. The European countries can afford to be sanctimonius, India cannot.

this old concept of not talking to countries for ideological & morality reasons, is turning out to be a failed idea. it has left strategic vaccum for others to step in and spoil our chances of reconciliation.

Pak does not fall in the above category.

With whom we had not talked to due to ideological differences except Taliban? (We are now b.t.w)

@ezsasa, we are in contact with Junta from 1993.
Probably only from 1988 to 1993 was the lull time.

take suspension of official dialogue with US after the khobragade incident for example, it cost us valuable years which got resolved only after modi came into govt.
I supported the suspension. Check the India USA thread in this forum itself.

Even recommended SUV/ TUV300 type ( then it was not mainstream 😉) treatment towards one of their diplomat.

And I don't term it as 'ideological differences'.

I was referring to supplying small arms enhancements to a regime that is currently killing its people with small arms. I find killing your people because they oppose military dictatorship as unacceptable.

It is indeed but when you have supplied those equipment two years back ,it don't make difference

With current tech, NO, but maybe...just maybe in the future. Right now what kind of problem do you think exists that can't be solved by aircraft, tanks, infantry? Space warfare...??
In modern warfare, the only thing that'll work with a mech is mobility to evade while firing accurately. Biped mechas will have poor armour compared to tank armour in the legs and thereby a tank round to the leg will cripple it. Plus you need to somehow keep the whole mech balanced on those two feet. Mechs will also need good advancements in generating high power while occupying as little space as possible.
The whole idea of mecha is about mobility, that is to traverse terrains, where tanks and other armoured vehicles cannot operate and maybe the ability to use different tools. Another thing going for mech, is the height, having a better view of the battlefield will be an advantage. Maybe you can even include some DEWs and stuff to protect the mech. But right now, the idea seems to be a solution to problems that don't yet exist.
