Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!

In 1994, I was elated at being accepted by the super-prestigious Tata Administrative Service, #TAS right after my #MBA . I was even more thrilled when I was chosen to be a part of the Tata Singapore Airlines JV
...to start a world class airline in India - perhaps the most exciting thing happening in Indian aviation, if not Indian industry, at that time. Very few people know that the original inspiration for Singapore Airlines was JRD Tata’s @airindiain -
– then amongst the best airlines in the world. The bureaucrats from #Singapore came to learn from him and his company on how to build a world-class airline out of Singapore.
