All govts play up +ves, play down -es during war/warlike situations. To criticize this thru innuendoes, hints & vague statements which may be selectively true(at specific time & place but not day later/earlier or in diff place) doesn't behove "patriots" Only known "fact" is ..2/
2/ld That the PLA seems to have cut of our earlier access to the road between finger 4 to finger 8 on Pangong lake, as well as established themselves on ridge to east of our camp(west of finger 4). But, I don't see this "fact" in report, only views, and views about PMs views
3/ld #SciMe: "First the facts, then the analysis, then the policy implications and finally the views " Don't believe any (repeat any) article or speech by an "expert" that reverses this sequence!

Today I am going to talk about an old & dear friend, one of the first Indian startup entrepreneurs(electronics hardware), an amazing patriot, who was badly treated by GOI, 12-13 years ago. I met him again after 13 years & heard the amazing story, which I had missed. 1/n ….2/n
2/n This friend’s company, designed & implemented for the IAF in many airfields, (1) the national real time digital, communication system, for the IAF, which is now used to communicate between every defence airport and every air headquarters. (2) ….3/n
3/n (2) A cellular air control system for the air force, the best in the world at that time, to replace the legacy system of the kind, which is still used in most civilian airports in India. What happened next, is a disgrace to the country….4/n

India has been pleading with “super power #USA” for 15 yrs, to help strengthen #India’s technological capabilities, so it can independently deter aggression by #China in the Indian sub-continent, & become key US-backed security provider in the Indian Ocean & its littoral (#IOR).
2/indus The logic of competitive strategy(Andrew marshal) shows that its in the best interest of USA to provide strategic technology to India to get best bang out of its military budget, so as to divert PLA attention away from Taiwan which is critical to long term defence of USA
3/indus For example, (1) accelerated development of an SLBM with a range of 5000 km. (2) Capability to detect(24x7) PLRF launches of conventional & nuclear missiles within seconds of launch. (3) Defence production capability(#AND) to sustain a hot war with PLA for > month, (4)…

66/Indus Army to Army cooperation making rapid strides since the visit of US general heading special forces command
67/indus Are Clinton-Obama 😇staffers in the Biden administration, holding up further/faster development of USA-India ties?
68/indus I am confident that #US foreign policy establishment, which is still nostalgic about its 20th C World dominance, will eventually realise that #India will have to be treated in 21st C, as an independent (albeit junior) “partner”, not a 20th C, “Allied Minor (child)”!

#IndiaEcon Policy reform must be translated into simpler rules & procedures on the ground, before it translates into production efficiency, investment, job creation and productivity: Well designed & implemented reform, will reboot the economy. ..2/ hindustantimes.com/india-news/reb…
2/rfrm Badly designed reform, like original GST structure (with 10s of Cess), will Not result in greater efficiency or growth. Incomplete reform, like Labour codes, will not generate visibly more jobs, till simple rules, procedures & reporting requirements are put in place!
3/rfrm There are 2 human weakness to beware; Tendency to, (1) “rest on ones laurels” tire & leave things incomplete and/or unattended, (2) Arrogance; In a world of great uncertainty, shocks & big changes, one has to constantly learn and adapt to new threats & opportunities!
