चीन ने बढ़ाए दलाई लामा का प्रभाव कम करने के प्रयास
चीन के भीतर रहने वाले तिब्बतियों पर चौदहवें दलाई लामा का प्रभाव घटाने और उन्हें नीचा दिखाने के लिए चीनी प्रशासन के प्रयास पिछले कुछ महीनों से स्पष्ट रूप से बढ़ गए हैं। साथ ही इस वर्ष चीन के राजनीतिक कैलेंडर में कई वर्षगांठें मनाई जानी हैं जैसे अक्टूबर में चीन गणराज्य (पीआरसी) की स्थापना का 70वां वर्ष, अप्रैल में पीपुल्स लिबरेशन आर्मी नेवी (प्लान) का स्थापना दिवस, जून में संवेदनशील थ्येन आनमन ‘कांड’ की 30वीं बरसी और 10 मार्च को तिब्बत से चौदहवें दलाई लामा के पलायन की 60वीं वर्षगांठ।
India’s Post-Pulwama Response
The attack on Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Pulwama, J&K, shook the nation. This has been the worst hit on the security forces of its kind. The nation was horrified and there were widespread demands to respond with an iron hand. There were many firsts in this entire episode - be it the attack or the aftermath.
Economic Warfare: The Most Effective Weapon in Chinese Strategy of Unrestricted War
The Chinese characteristics in hybrid warfare can be traced to Sun Zu’s classic Art of War. “To fight and conquer in all battles is not the supreme excellence; the supreme excellence is in breaking enemy’s resistance without fighting.”1 This reflects the oriental thought that violence is the last step towards achieving the national aim.
Contemporary Relevance of Sister Nivedita’s Ideas on Education
It is well-known that Sister Nivedita was an educationist by training. Even before she met Swami Vivekananda, Margaret E. Noble had earned a reputation in London as a promising intellectual and educationist. She had started experimenting with novel educational methods from 1892 onwards at the Kingsleygate School.
Operation Sahayata: Indian Navy Extends Support during Africa’s Hour of Need
In the aftermath of the Category 4 Cyclone 'IDAI' that lashed Mozambique, the cyclone moved further deep into the continent causing enormous destruction and swamping the people of Zimbabwe and Malawi. It is to be noted that this cyclone in the Southern Hemisphere is one among the worst weather-related calamities in living history. Around 1.7 million people have been affected in Mozambique and 920,000 affected in neighboring countries. The storm and flood has left the survivors hunting and excavating through rough fragments of stone, brick and concrete to search for victims.
Bull’s Eye - Chak De India
27 March, 2019 will go down as the most memorable day of this decade when India demonstrated an indigenous and operational Anti-Satellite Technology (ASAT) System, the fourth nation to do so in the world after USA, Russia and China. The DRDO and ISRO must be complimented for making all Indians proud and closing a strategic deficiency in the security architecture of India. “Mission Shakti” has delivered and was declared successful by the Prime Minister to a rather anxious nation who were eagerly awaiting an announcement of national importance.
The ASAT Test of 27 March 2019
India has finally done an Anti-Satellite Technology (ASAT) test. This was overdue as a demonstration of India’s capability – and that demonstration was done in the context of technologies of present day. The test was of a ‘kinetic kill’ of an orbiting satellite in the low earth orbit (LEO) at a height of approximately 300 km from ground. Success of this test and all associated maneuvers in space no doubt opens a significant vista in India’s emergence in its own right for due reckoning in the arena of exploration and intervention in space.
