Just a thought:

A PR team needs to be attached to CDS permanently.

Atleast rules and standards can be set centrally and disseminated to all branches of Indian military more efficiently.

My biggest gripes with Indian military PR:
1) they end up using American military personnel as silhouettes in advertisements
2) Indian defence journos cannot identify Indian military equipment
3) prevalent use of non-HD cameras, both photos and videos
4) childish/immature graphics used in current defence videos
5) very little discussion on future technologies
6) amateurish photos & videos in demonstration videos
7) create batches of defence chaps who are dedicated to capturing visuals , fund them with proper camera and software. They can take it up as a profession after retirement.
8) stop asking defence photographers to focusing on ministers and generals, ask them to focus on men and material.

Better to start having professionals to guide the PR standards, not the govt PROs.

Just a thought..

Looks like Brahmos-NG (mini) is going to be delayed, as they are awaiting IAF inputs.

why not develop land based Brahmos NG?

Since Brahmos NG range is supposedly 290 km, and it is half the weight as Brahmos, one TEL can carry 5-6 missiles instead of 3. Brahmos regiments will carry both, NG will be used for sub 300km and regular can be used for 400 km + ranges.

Just a thought:

if faulty shells are a problem, why not take a 360 degree X-ray of every shell manufactured and keep it on record.

If a barrel burst does happen, use the X-ray to identify the faults in the shell and thereby develop a library of manufacturing defects to look out for. Ai algorithm can be built into the X-ray machine to flag the possible defective shell at the QC itself.

Here “X-Ray” is colloquial for any imaging tech for non-invasive scan of the Shell.

Two things:

1) most people do not know about any work done by Modi govt, even if they know they cannot relate it to how it’s going to help in the future. Media is the culprit here.

2) different subtler ways of explaining the “Hindu under threat of extinction” message needs to be explored. The current narrative is not working in its entirety. Most hindus are not able to put 2 & 2 together. All Hindu Temples have to lead the charge here(not just verbally but financially as well), politicians should only play a supporting role.

I had realised that over the years i have created many posts which are just random thoughts, This thread is a repository of those thoughts.
Note : Strictly No Discussion Thread.
i need to create a thread like this too as my mind as some very practical ideas that individual nationalists and orgs can use like alinksyite tactics for nationalists.some naive fledgling nationalists need the right training and mindset to overcome their programming and be immune to wokeness.

Just a thought...

When you sum up all the wars and narratives against India from the west even since 1947, one thing is pretty clear they do not want Bharat to exist in its current form.

It’s so blatantly obvious, that it’s surprising that we don’t take it up as a narrative.

This narrative should be nucleus that all our other narratives should be built around.

Just a thought.

Going by the reactions , people might say they want the security establishment to shift to a offensive doctrine from a defensive doctrine, but in reality people don’t seem to be ready for the consequences that follow a offensive doctrine.

consequences of a offensive doctrine are more bloody, more brutal, more costly, now with hybrid warfare even more confusing.

Y'll Nibbiars Just a thought...

We usually lament that india's strategic doctrine is defensive in nature.

isn't it the case that even pakistan's strategic doctrine is defensive in nature too. other than India they never actually went to war with anyone else as a state. few oddities exist like Zia massacring Palestinians on behalf of Jordan and Raheel Sharif hired by Saudi's for massacring yemenis .

Can it be said that pakistan also has a defensive doctrine, contrary to what pakis think about themselves in their heads?

there is offence part to it,but for most people to find it and come to the right conclusion it would take them to a dark place where they cant return from easily or explain away their musings,like a mental abyss.they would not start following the road so how do you think they will reach the destination.

the pakistanis rely on internal muslim traitors and 5th columns as main offensive force and that is why they howl when you attack them.the army can only be forwarded after the state power of india is sufficiently degraded under their influence.

Just a thought, hard to prove...

I feel Americans want to move on China as the next big enemy, fans of China within America want to divert Americas attention to Islamic terror..

Plausible?

alt right types and guys like me agree on this.many alt right and alt left types are fine with china.the centre and boomer conservative and the neo liberals have an issue with china and the retreat of usa from globalist empire.

Yes you are correct, China is the long term Big Bad, currently they are still feeding China like they appeased Hitler many decades ago.
And no, Islamic Terrorism is not the distraction, but Russia is

I agree. If you see Twitter(yes, it isn't a reliable source, but still) handles of prominent hard-left people from the West, Russia seems to have a magnified image as a threat, despite it being a feeble power as compared to the Chinese. Trump's lack of action on Russia as compared to China was highlighting as him being a Russian stooge. Russian interference in the West and cyber attacks are highly focused on, but similar things done by the Chinese during the BLM protests and elections are completely ignored. However, I don't think it is due to ideological reasons, but rather due to political and monetary loyalties. The Left is morally corrupt in the West.

I disagree. Pak's creation due to the sole reason of keeping India in check, as you yourself have pointed out numerous times. However, it is not in Murican interest to see a divided India, solely due to the fact that India is the only nation on the planet capable of taking on China before reaching the high income level, unlike Vietnam, Thailand, etc. and this won't change unless Africa unites all of a sudden. France and the UK at this stage don't give a flying fuck, as they have much bigger problems at home than focusing on the destabilization of a friendly country half way through the globe. There is no Western/Global conspiracy against India, but the narrative against the unification of India as you have mentioned is solely due to selfish geopolitical causes. In the event the EU ever tries to unite and become a single country, their brothers across the Atlantic would themselves destabilize it from within to prevent a rival centre of power. THIS is where India should focus, as I believe that as China become more powerful, and Murica fails to catch up, a G2 policy has a 50% chance of happening. At this stage, the only competitor for Murica in the democratic/Western/liberal World Order is India, because though India may be moving, rightfully so, against Liberalism in the form practiced by the West, we are still the closest alternative present to the world against Murica, and they would hate to lose their pole position in such matters. Eventually, India and the Bald Eagle will clash, when India's economy approaches theirs, and India challenges their ideological supremacy.

Just a thought : If we notice good books usually come from bureaucrats(from a governance point of view ), not the politicians. That's because a good politician in prime who has earned his/her spurs will never have time to write books, they have to attend to their constituents "24/7". conceptualising new ideas is not a politician's job, but rather keeping people around who can conceptualise new ideas is optional to a politician's job description.

Left have figured this out decades ago, they leave all the conceptualisation of ideas to academia. Propagating of these ideas to the film and news media. and politicians are used by left to convert those ideas into laws. there is clear segregation of duties and co-operation between the verticals.

Nationalists(especially in the current Indian ones) on the other hand expect the politicians to come up with ideas, propagate those ideas and also implement those ideas.Indian Nationalists want a all in one, No wonder they(a large section of them atleast) are always disappointed.

In reality a politician who is good at governance will not have time to come up with new ideas, and a politician who is good at coming up with new ideas will not have time for governance.
