This thread deals with the devious & dubious role of former PM of J&K, Mr Ramchandra Kak during those tumultous years of 1940s, when J&K was at the crossroads of its future engagements & the big picture that was emerging in #India

#Jammu #Himachal #Kashmir #Accession #Dogra
As u all r aware that #JammuKashmir had 2 major parties viz National Conference headed by #SheikhAbdullah & Muslim Conference by #YusufShah.
RC Kak was the person who exploited the differences b/w them for the "God Knows what" benefit

#Kashmir #Jammu #Himachal
The major reason of rift among these larties was the #Lahore Declaration by #Muslim League in 1940. NC was secular by nature and had good equations with #Nehru and #Congress, while MC was communal & was completely in favour of acceeding with #Pakistan

The consolidation of anti-#India protests, fuelled by brutal killing of an engineering student, over a silly water share agreement and now a clash between BGB & BSF indicate potential political turmoil in #Bangladesh.
BSF/BGB became history as two countries came closer over the last 10 years. At a time when two govts signing defence cooperation pacts BGB's offensive raises many questions. More so, due 2 #Bangladesh #Army's general influence over BGB. 2/n…

Thread: #SouthKorea's Stealth Fighter looks strikingly similar to #India's AMCA, but will fly earlier - Maybe India should consider cooperation with S. Korea?…
The KF-X & AMCA have similar characteristics, including the fact that both aircraft will be powered by 2 US-built F414 jet engines. The KF-X & AMCA also have a loaded weight of around 25 tons each & will be capable of carrying weapons and equipment both internally and externally.
The mock-up of the KF-X unveiled in Seoul showed the fighter armed with European-origin air-to-air missiles, including the Meteor long-range missile. The Meteor is, incidentally, being supplied to the Indian Air Force for its fleet of Rafale fighters.

Trump’s sanctions against #Turkey result largely from Erdogan’s purchase of #S400 from #Russia. Interestingly #India too signed a deal worth $5.4 billion with Russia for S-400 in 2015. If US decide to sanction India, Reliance Defense may be destroyed.…
Purchases from #Russia attract US #sanctions under the #CAATSA Act.

The US can issue waivers but only on a transaction-to-transaction basis.

The US still has NOT given #India a waiver on this #S400 deal despite requests.…
Guess who is the main offset partner for the #S400 deal between #India & #Russia?

Yup - it’s Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defense.

Ambani signed a contract with Russia’s Almaz-Antey which makes S-400 potentially worth $6bn.…

Who are the #Kurds? Why should overthrow of Govt of #Syria be their objective? Are they on a quest for #Kurdistan or are they just pawns in the game of geopolitical players? What are the implications of the Turkish #OperationPeaceSpring for #India?…
In 1973 President Richard Nixon & Secretary of State Henry Kissinger instigated a CIA #Kurdish uprising in #Iraq against #SaddamHussein. The US walked away from the rebellion when Saddam and the Shah of #Iran settled their differences, leaving the #Kurds to face their own fate.
In addition to political disagreements and rivalries, tensions between the two dominant Iraqi #Kurdish political parties, the #Kurdistan Democratic Party #KDP and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan #PUK escalated to a civil war that killed more than 2,000 #Kurds in the mid-1990s.

A leading five star hotel in #India had invited Mr. Masai Imai from Japan to hold a workshop for its staff.
The staff were very skeptical - the hotel is doing excellent business, this person from #Japan has no exposure to hotel industry - what exactly is he going to teach?

But everybody gathered as planned for the workshop in the conference hall sharp at 9 am.
Mr.Masai was introduced to them;a not so impressive personality,nor the English all that good;spoke as if he was first formulating each sentence in Japanese & then translating it into rather clumsy English.

#China & #India aren’t best friends – but agreed strategic adjustment might prevent WAR between Asian superpowers - The summits indicate that Xi and Modi are committed to predictable and stable relations which do not boil over…
For years, the Chinese held a dim view of India as a socially and economically backward land, and a stooge of Western imperialism which is no match to China. But India’s rise as an independent ‘leading power’ under Modi has compelled fullest attention in Beijing.
Ironically, if China needs Pakistan to keep India under check, India under Modi has played the card of cozying up to the US and Russia to keep China under check.

For #India, diplomacy with #China flows through the barrel of a gun - India stages massive military drills near the Chinese border just as Xi & Modi prepare for their 2nd summit. Sino-Indian military muscle-flexing is typical before diplomatic meetings 👍…
As President Xi Jinping & Indian PM Modi prepare for their second informal summit in the southeastern coastal town of Mamallapuram this weekend, the Indian Army begun a massive military exercise 100km from the Line of Actual Control, the de facto border between India and China.
Code-named “Him Vijay”, the exercise will test the battle-readiness of the Indian Army’s newly minted Mountain Strike Corps (MSC) at a 4,572 m altitude. The MSC, raised in 2013, is a dedicated quick reaction & counteroffensive force to deal with threats in the Sino-Indian border.

After watching events in #India for many months now, it is obvious that Hindus are in a peculiar situation and will need central govt's help. Islamists and secularists are anti-Hindu and are adept at their games. Islamists attack, kill, & rape #Hindus yet manage to portray /1
....themselves as victims. Secularists have been attacking Hindu culture in courts and society yet portray Hindus as fascists and terrorists.
The thing that makes it hard for Hindus is that the media aids and abets the anti-Hindu attacks of all parties involved /2
.... incl Islamists, leftists, and secularists. The media NEVER shows attacks against Hindus which means that the public does not come to know about those attacks. They do however loudly broadcast any little harm that happens to Muslims and even broadcast outright lies, /3

We cannot call it #India-#Bangladesh prime ministerial meeting in true sense of the term, since #SheikhHasina came to the WEF meeting. The bilateral visit is scheduled later. However despite its limited scope I find the meeting very encouraging and beneficial for either side. 1/n
Key takeaways from #Modi-#SheikhHasina
Meeting 1) The LPG deal is consequent to #India's decision to invest in LPG terminal in #Chittagong. With time we wil see rise in supplies and #Bangladesh-#NorthEast LPG pipeline. 2/n
LPG deal is a mirror of #India-Bangladesh #diesel pipeline with the exception that in the case of #LPG, #Bangladesh is also getting #FDI. This is early stages of creation of a regional oil & gas grid, which may be expanded to #CLMV #Asean in the days to come. #Modi- #Hasina

After raising protest in a letter to President Trump, now American lawmakers have acted legally against India over the #Kashmir issue urging for US intervention. What makes the report more startling is that the doc was submitted just days after #HowdyModi…
On 12 Sept 2019 Senators Chris Van Hollen, Todd Young, Ben Cardin and Lindsay Graham wrote a letter to President Trump raising concerns over #Kashmir issue. Congressman Eric Swalwell said Kashmir is not just about India but has worldwide military, economic and moral consequences.
In a first step towards legislative action by American lawmakers against India over #Kashmir US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations has added an appeal to end what it calls a “humanitarian crisis” in Kashmir in its report ahead of the annual Foreign Appropriations Act for 2020.

First Rafale jets to be seen in #Indian skies in May 2020 - Responding to a query by IANS, Bhadauria said that #India will receive the first four of the 36 Rafale fighter jets by May 2020…
"By May 2020, we will be receiving four Rafale fighter jets. It will be only then that we will see the aircraft in the Indian skies. The advantage of getting the Rafale in May next year will be that our pilots will be substantially trained by then," said Bhadauria.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh will be receiving the first Rafale fighter aircraft in France on October 8 when he is also scheduled to fly a sortie on a two-seater trainer version.

"A pre-delivery inspection team was in France last month to complete the handover formalities.

From end 2012 to Q1 2019 (7yrs), China debt to GDP ratio rose 63.2% to 259.4% of GDP (meaning at end 2012 it was less than 200% of GDP). Unless that 63.2% credit/gdp was into productive investment that raises future productivity, the incremental capital to output (ICOR)worsening
The juxtaposition to China rapid growth of debt is the Eurozone deleveraging (credit/gdp ratio FALLING). Australia, Thailand, Malaysia & India have all deleveraged.

Indonesia capital market remains undeveloped & needs to deepen. Smallest debt to GDP ratio in Asia 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻.
How do u deleverage? Well, several ways but ultimately your DEBT has to rise LESS than your OUTPUT.

DEBT/GDP = ratio & that ratio has to fall.

If ur output (GDP) falls, then your debt growth has to fall FASTER! That is how you deleverage. How u do so is up to u. NIRP is 1 way

One Missing Child Is One Too Many

The lack of a common definition of “missing child,” and a common response to the issue, results in few reliable statistics on the scope of the problem around the world.

Even with this challenge, we know that:

In Australia, an estimated 20,000 children are reported missing every year.

China mentions #Kashmir

#Turkey and #Malaysia mentions #Kashmir

#Bangladesh mentions the 1971 genocide

But PM Modi didn't utter a word on





#Kurdistan or

declare to recognize #ArmenianGenocide

#India's idealism is frustrating
How can India argue for its place at #UNSC when we remain silent on major issues?

इतने ही तटस्थ हो नाव लेकर गंगा में काहे जाते हो

बैठो घाट पर और चिलम पियो

Yes, Kasmir is an issue

Make it an issue

Talk about #HinduGenocide in Pakistan

Talk about #Balochsitan #OrdinanceXX
PM Modi is the leader of India

His words matter

His anger will be discussed

His warning will be heeded to

Scrapping #Article370 is huge step in India but in global geopolitics, it is just a much-delayed step

Drop the hesitation...

Threat of unleashing nuclear devastation qualifies as brinksmanship, not statesmanship
Mr. President,
I take the floor to exercise India’s right of reply to the statement made by the Prime
Minister of Pakistan.

2. Every word spoken from the podium of this august Assembly, it is believed, carries the
weight of history. Unfortunately, what we heard today from Prime Minister Imran Khan of
Pakistan was a callous portrayal of the world in binary terms.
