The thesis advanced was - economic prosperity will be guarantee to Security .That's too simplistic take on that. Do remember,a lot of invasions were repelled and continuously at that. Many of the rulers could do that because they maintained strong armies. You'll find that many a time when the fort was breached it was due to ghar-ke-bhedi.
The French spend a lot of resources and efforts in building the Maginot line and it fulfilled its purpose in keeping the Germans away. What they failed to foresee was that the Germans would bypass the line completely by invading via low countries (Belgium and Netherlands).
And how did it end for the Germans? All the advanced weaponry and tricks in the world, culminated in ultimate humiliation, loss of erstwhile territory and division of country down the middle.
The Roma empire too fell because of many factors, internal squabbling being the main. First there was a division between Western and Eastern Roman empire and then we know the rest.
However, the ancient examples are hardly relevant to the modern era.
Let me ask you, if USSR had as much money as China has now, would they collapsed despite having one of the most powerful militaries on the planet?
Do you not think that having Supreme wealth allows China not only to invest hundreds of billions of dollars annually on defence and also have ample resources to clampdown on any and all internal dissent such as in Xinjiang?
This will be a gamechanger decision if it comes out to be true... Just imagine the plight of Sonia when she will have to address Maneka with full respect... Madam Chairperson or Speaker Ma'am... Uffffff I doubt if Sonia will even speak a word In Parliament for the next 5 years for her ego of not respecting Maneka... Time is powerful as they say.... A lady who was given the corner place in the dynast family and was given step motherly treatment will now most probably demand the utmost respect,, as the Lok Sabha Chairman has the highest respect equivalent to the level of Vice President. I hope RaGa doesn't end up calling her Chachi in his Parliament speeches....:biggrin2::biggrin2:
India is moving steadily from traditional exports like garments to manufactured products; and finding new markets in South America, Africa, Asia etc. As incomes increase, India will lose competitiveness in some sectors to cheaper labour elsewhere. India's project exports and manufactures are rising while leather and garment exports are stagnating or shrinking.How does that work..............
Right approach would have been to start from grass roots and start recruiting local Tamils who are religious. Then send them to North in places like vrindawan, badrinath, haridwar etc. Then let these tamilians return and recruit more on religious lines. Let them loose on social media and propagate how tamilians are forced to toe Abhramic religions lines rather than dharmic.BJP making inroads into TN. Wait for a lot more nonsense from TN this term...
That need not be a replacement, it could be an addition. Garments are a huge business employing millions, best not to write it off.India is moving steadily from traditional exports like garments to manufactured products; and finding new markets in South America, Africa, Asia etc. As incomes increase, India will lose competitiveness in some sectors to cheaper labour elsewhere.

Wait for some time. I shall post composition of India's exports and imports and comparison to 10 years back.
It is a natural process driven by market forces. Garment business is not dead, its output is absorbed by domestic market. As incomes rise, people buy more clothes, build better houses, buy more automobiles etc. Economy is not only about exports.That need not be a replacement, it could be an addition. Garments are a huge business employing millions, best not to write it off.
Trying to exploit fault lines is an old Cold War tactic, there is going to be no end to it and neither any country is able to control the “attacks” coming from outside.Earlier attempt to divide hindus on caste lines has failed at the hustings of general elections. Now the Plan B to cause chaos in name of language and religion has been initiated. I would not be surprised if the puppeteer is in western world or Arab.
The first challenge of the Modi govt. will be to negotiate this minefield to restrict the space to take decision on issues of National interest like Article 370A, Sri Ram Janmbhoomi, Education reforms, Uniform Civil Code. All these issues have Hindu and Muslim faultlines which ia going to be exploited for spreading chaos and has potential of causing pain.
Amit Shah and Modi will need all guile and wickedness to push through these changes . These decisions will improve National well being and force anti-india forces to reveal themselves. At that moment we neutralise those forces covertly or overtly. I feel this term is going to be ruthless and eventful. I have my seat belts firmly locked. The purge of anti-nationals is about to begin and it is going to be brutal, ugly and no holds barred match... We might find unexpected allies in this fight. West and OIC will be defeated soundly.
Is it really? So then how should we view the 2019 LS results in TN? And what do you think will happen in the next state polls?BJP making inroads into TN. Wait for a lot more nonsense from TN this term...
There is anti-incumbency and infight of stupid proportions in AIADMK. After Jailalita they have no face. There is nothing much there to read on these results.Is it really? So then how should we view the 2019 LS results in TN? And what do you think will happen in the next state polls?
Also, from the looks of it, most common Tamils seem to be pretty anti BJP and anti Modi due to severe disinformation by DMK types/lack of understanding of BJP & Modi. Am I mistaken in this assessment?
Probably preparing to avert a tax evasion notice, otherwise snakes never change their spots.Ghor Kaliyug!!!
Editor-in-chief of ThePrint and President of Editors' Guild , Shekhar Gupta, fiercely pro-Congress and who never missed a chance to criticise government on its policies and even defamed Modi government with twisted facts and fake news many a times, now himself admitting his continuous and wilful denial of the impact of central government policies on the common man which was the decisive factor of the huge mandate earned by Modi government again. Ooooohh... the burn INC would be getting right now.
Ghor Kaliyug re baba!!! :bounce:
What do you see in the near future in TN? Results of next state polls? Can/will AIADMK infighting be solved by a unifying figure (Rajinikanth?) ? Will the current NDA alliance continue and how will BJP itself perform/grow?There is anti-incumbency and infight of stupid proportions in AIADMK. After Jailalita they have no face. There is nothing much there to read on these results.
