Set to be Unleashed: Indian Dog Breeds Give Teeth to PM Modi's Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission




PM Modi suggested the use of Mudhol Hounds

The NCB officials understood that PM Modi was alluding to those breeds of dogs that are found at the border of Maharashtra and Karnataka, famously known as Mudhol Hounds. There is an interesting story about them. Traders in the middle ages who travelled through the ancient Silk Route, used dogs for their security. This route witnessed long caravans of traders who would travel from China to Europe via Iran and Arab countries. The dogs used for the security of the traders were of Arabic and Turkish breeds. These are also known as Saluki in West Asia. Later, the Arabic and Turkish breeds were crossed and the new breed was called Caravan or Carvani.

Shivaji had a huge squad of hounds

This Carvani breed was used by Shivaji. These dogs are very faithful and always ready to protect their masters and keep them informed about the enemy. Along the Maharashtra-Karnataka border, there is a famous story about these dogs saving the life of Shivaji’s elder son Sambhaji and that is why Shivaji loved these dogs and started using them against his enemies. It is said that he was always surrounded by these dogs wherever he went and, precisely for this reason, these dogs are also called the Maratha breed. They were trained before they were recruited in Shivaji’s army.

You need visibility if you want to export. I see no harm.

You would be surprised to know that this is the first indigenous system inducted in IA which is able to handle a 60T MBT (Arjun). The earlier PMS system could only support upto 60T weight category vehicle.

And we have kids here who have seen the whole Arjun saga.. :facepalm:
