Food Security Bill (FSB) ordinance has been signed by President and hence cleared its way for implementation. FSB is the most anxious project of UPA-2 which is surrounded amidst scams, rising prices, plummeting economy and poor governance. The basic problem with the current congress set up is that they only believe in remaining power and [...]

Over the last year or so, the incursion of Chinese troops on Indian soil has gone up. The Indian Army has said that it has registered the protest with Chinese officials but it still looked lethargic in their approach to me.
The government is just playing down these border violations by saying that it is not [...]

A prosperous, militarily strong China cannot but be a threat to its neighbours, especially if there are no constraints on the exercise of Chinese power, notes Brahma Chellaney, professor of strategic studies at the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi.
The latest round of the unending and fruitless India-China talks on territorial disputes was a fresh [...]

It used to be an eerie landmark; the tree I saw everyday in the summer of 1999, blackened and ripped by incessant bombing at the old brigade headquarters, is green again.
But much else has withered. The legacy of the Kargil war, one of the toughest wars of modern military history — far tougher than Iraq [...]

A DECADE ago, Indian Armed Forces fought one of the toughest battles in Kargil against Pakistani soldiers and terrorists. The enemy was uprooted and it became an embarrassment for the enemy who declined to accept the bodies of its nationals.
How many of you remember the name Saurabh Kalia today? If you don’t, then for your [...]
