    Fresh buying of Russian Jets.

    Ok lets dispel some myths. HAL Nashik factory produces the MKI, they are not buying from Russia. They are effectively signing an agreement for HAL to keep its Nashik factory open for another year. (12 a year produced). This means the factory and parts suppliers are open for a year extra. Which means IAF wants to simply supplement a its MKI lost to crashes etc and maintain the MKI strength at 272. It also means a factory remains open to churn out more MKI's quickly if there is indeed war with China and/or Pak with any money paid to Russia quickly. Its about retaining the inbuilt capacity. I expect another 1 year extension apart from this. Mig 29.These are already built in Russia in brand new condition. To them the IAF pimps them up by applying anti jammer radars (so reduce radar cross section or reduce being detected) alongside some latest technology to bring them to the 4th gen + standard. The cost of doing so and fully arming a Mig 29 is around $15 million-20 million. In May and June the IAF carried out sorties and found the Mig29 does well in the thin air of Ladakh and Kashmir. India already has around 60 of these planes. So our pilots are already trained on them. Experienced Mig 21 pilots will also be easily be able to operate them. Thus the Mig 29 is an option which can be delivered and implemented quickly. Especially on the western front v Pakistan they offer good deterrence against the F16s and JK17s. They are limited jets but are good as interceptors used in a defensive manner. A big step up from the Mig21 we currently operate. Rafales (a) Cost money (150 million per bird) (b) Are not built in India which means there is a delivery date issue (c) Our pilots needs some extra time to train on them. Usually it takes around 2 years and many hours of flight time for pilots to be fully comfortable. Hope this post clarifies things.

    The wiki description of global times is jhakkas. The Global Times (simplified Chinese: 环球时报; traditional Chinese: 環球時報; pinyin: Huánqiú Shíbào) is a daily tabloid newspaper under the auspices of the Chinese Communist Party's People's Daily newspaper, commenting on international issues from a nationalistic perspective

    Dravid being called overrated test batsmen, lol. Guess i have seen it all. 52 average in test cricket, saving India's @ss so many times. Sorry to say, some of you guys have no clue what test cricket is about if you call Dravid an overrated test batsman. Your usage of the word overrated has been overly used. Need to figure that part out. Someone like Dravid in test cricket ca never be considered overrated. He was a gem and class apart who saved us more times than anyone did probably.

    Fresh buying of Russian Jets.

    Some time back I looked up the Feb 2019 Ind-Pak air battle. Turns out that the undisputed superstar of the IAF was & is the Mirage 2000, a western aircraft. When we were fighting off the "non-state actors" occupying the Kargil heights two decades back, the aircraft that wiped out the morale & heads of those padosis was the Mirage with its Israeli bombs & targeting pods. Fast forward to 2019, the same aircraft hammers terrorist buildings deep inside enemy territory without being detected. Now all that's just ground attacks. What is also mentioned is the next day when PAF came up with 24 different aircraft to attack Indian locations and draw IAF aircraft into a trap, it was the Mirage that could lock onto the farthest PAF planes inside Pakistani controlled airspace and made them turn around. This was again with the updated MICA missiles, western tech on western aircraft. The Sukhoi, for all its stated prowess about air superiority, could not lock onto the F-16s which were firing AMRAAMs from quite a distance. Yes, it was able to defend itself via jammers or move away from the incoming missile with its powerful engines, but that's not what we thought was its primarily skill. The Russian R-77 missile was found lacking against the AMRAAM & the IAF is looking for alternatives including Israeli ones. Often, there's nothing better than battle proven western tech if you desire asymmetry in military tech and want to inflict damage to your opponent in battles and skirmishes. The IAF was so impressed with the Mirage 2K's capabilities post Kargil that it just wanted a lot of them, a terrific swiss army knife that does the job. The french offered the Rafale as a modern alternative and then MMRCA & good old bureaucracy struck us hard.

    Mirage would have been a very solid 'allrounder' workhorse for the IAF. The fact that Indian establishment failed to follow through on acquiring these post-kargil, is a massive strategic blunder.

    Escalation at India-China border

    Some thing can be argued, But for China, Its all about backup plan. CPEC is the backup plan for them. If you carefuly look at map of international map of India. There is Indian Map, Then on that there is dotted line for LAC between India china which cuts a segment of Laddakh but there is another dotted line, called LoC between India Pakistan. The LoC ends in J&K and doestn cuts the laddakh , ie there is a part of India in Himalayas where CPEC goes through. All it needs is a Infrastructure and will of GoI to demarcate that regions. China or Pakistan can not wriggle out of this Leh, to Karakoram is just couple of Years. Pakistan cand do anything about it, But China can. and this whole standoff is all about bringing India on a table to halt the infra build or get some assurance. Santosh Babu screwed whole plan of Chinese

    Escalation at India-China border

    Lets be absolutely certain on one thing. For China, this fight is for trade route. For India, This fight is for its borders. Jaishankar has made it very clear that both nations have red lines and mutual interests. What it means is, India is saying to China that they wont have to worry about CPEC route from Indian side as long as we are allowed to secure the border. However, Chinese do not think that they can control/sell pro China narrative in 1.4 billion strength democracy compared to 250 million strength autocracy. At the same time they cant afford enmity with 1.4 billion big nation. Whatever way they want to sell this to their people and world, but imo, it was very calculated move by them, however what they miscalculated was courage and valour of Bihar regiment , Santosh Babu and his men simply turned upside down, all their board room planning. Just take one step back, Think about whole situation if 15th June Galwan battle didnt happened. By giving his life, Santosh Babu and his men, Gave India a lot of ammunition in current stand off. The more I think, I feel Dadhichi has new name. Santosh Babu

    Biggest misnomer ever. These so called 'Ambedkarites' ignore half of Babasaheb's writings/views and then twist the other half to give perverted interpretations. If the great man were alive today he would be aghast at what these clowns do using his name and portrait. Modi is closer to being an Ambedkarite (370 abrogation being a fitting tribute) than these nuisance characters but even he has some undesirable character traits, simply put BRA was one of a kind and so brutally honest as well as crystal clear in his views/action. Wish Babasaheb had become our 1st PM and been given full freedom to draft our constitution as well as deal with Kashmir, huge missed opportunity for India.

    I don’t know as I am conflicted. It is bad for current times, but in the thread the @Manny_Pacquiao ran about the solution for Islamic communal problem in India with the 2-nation theory, Partition etc. the solution seemed to be a demographic check. Keep them as minorities. Because once they cross even 25% , there is a threat to Peace and security in the region as we see in UKistan, WB, Kerala, Mewat etc. For long lasting peace in the region, it is a viable solution though it’d seem morally wrong in current times. This is what Burmese Buddhists did to Rohingyas and SInhalese did to LTTE/Tamils.

    Don’t have to feel sorry for him. I don’t think lack of income has anything to do with his behavior, I don’t think even if he wins the lotto tomorrow, he is going to change. In fact money in the hands of such idiots may cause more harm than good. It’s just the upbringing and environment that matter. Look at someone like Munaf Patel who is a Muslim as well, comes from a remote area and from what I heard didn’t even own or wear a pair of shoes till he started playing active cricket. He carries himself way better than even some of the “dar-ul-Oxford” and imtiyaaz-e-Cambridge” educated padosi cricketers.

    Over the years, Indian cricket hasn't only been blessed in terms of quality bowlers or batsmen at their disposal, but also have found able leaders, who set the path for excellence for the next batch. It all started with Sourav Ganguly's leadership, as the national side commenced the 'repair work' post the match-fixing scandal. While Ganguly brought in fresh faces and backed them to the core, he also made full use of his senior mates, such as Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, etc. Though most hail MS Dhoni after Ganguly's era, Dravid also held the responsibility of the side for a brief period. Many remember his captaincy for India's miserable run in the 2007 World Cup, however, the former captain had several achievements as well. Under him, India won its first-ever Test on South African soil, defeated England and West Indies in their own backyards in 2006 and 2007 respectively and became a much better side in chasing totals. Apart from his leadership, Dravid remains an icon for performing exceedingly in several roles for the team's sake in crisis. Some of them are: keeping wickets for a balanced combination, playing as a finisher in the latter part of his ODI career, opening the innings in Tests, protecting the batting line-up with his solid defence against the new ball, etc. In today's times, he remains an ardent servant of Indian cricket, being the head of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) after successfully stamping his authority as a U-19 and India A coach. Thus, former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir hailed Dravid and made a big claim on him. Gambhir said during Star Sports show, ‘Cricket Connected’, "I made my ODI debut under Sourav Ganguly, I made my Test debut under Rahul Dravid. It is so unfortunate that we do not give enough credit for his captaincy as well. We only talk about Sourav Ganguly or MS Dhoni and now about Virat Kohli. But Rahul Dravid has been a fabulous captain for India. Even his records, he is probably the most underrated cricketer and probably the most underrated leader as well. We won in England, we won in West Indies and we won 14 or 15 games on the trot. But look at Rahul Dravid as a cricketer," he stated. Gambhir further opined, "You asked him to open the batting in Test cricket and he did that. He kept wickets for India, he batted as a finisher. He did everything Indian cricket or a captain asked him to do and that is the kind of role models you want. For me, I think he has had a bigger impact. Sourav Ganguly has always had a bigger impact in white-ball cricket because of his flamboyance but Rahul Dravid overall in Indian cricket had a much bigger impact than probably anyone. You can actually match his impact on someone like Sachin Tendulkar as well. He played under the shadow of Sachin Tendulkar all his life, but impact wise probably the same." Without a doubt, Dhoni took over the team, made it a temperamentally stronger unit and raised their game awareness before handing over the reins to Virat Kohli, the platform was set for both of them by Ganguly, who in turn, had a selfless teammate in Dravid.

    Escalation at India-China border

    I am no Modi fan, as some of the more enthusiastic Bhakts on this forum are well aware - but you cannot fault him for the current situation. If anything, under this administration, the border road building has been prioritized even more. Which is what led to the the Chinese realizing that the window was starting to close where they had a massively lop-sided tactical and logistical advantage on the ground. That's why they are trying to 'lock in' maximum gains on the LAC. As much as I detest the CCP, and don't want the country's resources to be wasted/spent on conflict - I am actually very grateful to the stupidity of the CCP. They have delivered us a very good wake-up call to our entire government, political establishment as well as our business folks. This dumb plan to 'bully' India only for the sake of grabbing some "tactical' heights in barren landscapes, will shake India out of its complacency, and may even be a major turning point in policy-making. I expect India to speed up its alignment with US/AUS/JPN on the foreign policy front, and really make a strong effort to prioritize manufacturing. Supported with consumer demand and selective boycotts, local businesses will get a major opportunity, and hopefully long overdue reforms and infrastructure projects also move forward. If only the Chinese had kept things going quietly, they probably could have made the same land gains, over a longer timeframe, without actively confronting India. Turning a lazy complacent 'non-aligned' country into one that's awake to the threat of Chinese dominance is a major strategic blunder. They should have boiling the frog at slow heat, instead, they turned the burner to high. Greed and Arrogance leads to foolishness - Confucious probably said that at some point.

    Do you know ho much money Amir has made in the Chinese market? Its literally tens of millions of dollars. Why would the Indian movie industry jeopardize a hugely profitable market, over a border skirmish where the border itself is undefined. Its easy to criticize these people, and I get that, but let's use a bit of logic. If it came to us, we'd be adopting the same approach.

    Difficult to answer. When it comes to suing the media for libel, slander, or defamation, the responsibility rests with you to prove that: A journalist or media outlet published something false about you. That person acted deliberately and negligently. The false statement caused you harm. In India there is a big difference between defamation cases filed by members of the aam junta and those filed by known people/institutions. For instance, if say a Raj Parekh committed a stock market scam and a Raaj Pareekh who is a doctor ( a totally unrelated person) was mistakenly named and shamed in a print magazin/newspaper by lazy work of a journalist who couldn't bother to check credentials, high chances are that Raaj Pareekh would win sizeable compensation. In this case, the information the newspaper published is both false and damaging. Raaj Pareekh's reputation is harmed, and his patients will be wary and he will likely lose customers and revenue, even if the newspaper prints a correction. Therefore, if Raaj Pareekh brings a lawsuit for libel, the newspaper would lose 9 out of 10 times. However, the bar is set much higher when a public figure or celebrity or a recognizable institution has been wronged. A public figure/institution must prove that not only was a false statement published but that it was published with “actual malice.” That means the person or media organization making the false statement knew or should have known it was false but published it anyway. They must have demonstrated “reckless disregard for the truth”—either a lack of fact-checking, or printing the false story in spite of knowing the facts. This is a much higher standard to overcome, which makes it more difficult for public figures/institutions to win defamation lawsuits against the media.
