“Indigenize India’s Military Doctrines, Procedures and Customs too”: PM at Kevadia
PM’s Observation that Created the Ripple Effect
On 06 March 2021 the Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi delivered the valedictory address to the Combined Commanders’ Conference at Kevadia in Gujarat. He stressed the “importance of enhancing indigenisation in the national security system
निश्चित ही यह भूल नहीं है, क्वाड पर बांग्लादेश को चीन की चेतावनी
यह बात अब जगजाहिर हो चुकी है और चीनी राजदूत ने बांग्लादेश को स्पष्ट रूप से यह बता दिया है कि चीन नहीं चाहता कि बांग्लादेश क्वाड में शामिल हो। बांग्लादेश में चीन के राजदूत ली जिमिंग ने 10 मई को 2021 एक आभासी कार्यक्रम में भाग लेते हुए कहा कि पेइचिंग-ढाका संधि का “काफी नुकसान” होगा, अगर वह (बांग्लादेश) क्वाड में शामिल होता है।1 केवल इतना ही नहीं. ग्लोबल टाइम्स, जिसे चीनी सरकार का मुखपत्र माना जाता है, ने भी आगाह किया कि, ‘अगर कोई देश क्वाड के भूराजनीतिक जाल में फंसता है तो उसकी आर्थिक संभावनाएं उसी के अनुरूप जोखिम में पड़ जाएंगी’।2.
Takeaways from the Biden-Putin Summit
The downturn in the trajectory of US-Russia ties has become more pronounced since 2014. The differences over Ukraine, Middle East and others have been further exacerbated by charges of election meddling, cyber attacks levelled against Russia. At present, neither country has an ambassador in the other. Given this fragility of US-Russia ties, the Biden-Putin in Geneva is an important effort towards finding "stability and predictability" in the U.S.-Russia relations.
प्रकृति, भारत, और अनुशासन
समस्त मानव जाति के लिए यदि ईश्वर का सर्वोत्तम वरदान कुछ है तो वह प्रकृति है। प्रकृति और मानव एक दूसरे के पूरक माने गए हैं। मनुष्य और प्रकृति के बीच संतुलित संबंध का आधार समरसता को माना गया है । यही भाव प्रकृति और व्यक्ति को एक दूसरे से जोड़ता है। प्रकृति और मनुष्य का संबंध आश्रय और आश्रित का है। प्रकृति संपूर्ण पृथ्वी ग्रह को अपने भीतर संरक्षण देती है। ‘प्रकृति’ किसी व्यक्ति, समाज, राज्य, या देश, की निजी संपत्ति नहीं होती। किन्तु यह कहना असत्य नहीं होगा कि सदियों से हमारे देश भारत का प्रकृति के साथ एक भिन्न एवं अनोखा संबंध रहा है। सर्व प्राचीन सभ्यता होने के
Fears of Colour Revolution in People’s Liberation Army
China's People's Liberation Army (PLA) is the sword arm of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Its recruits swear an oath of loyalty to the Party. The evening that Xi Jinping took over China’s top three positions of General Secretary of the CCP Central Committee (CC), Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) and China's President, he convened an enlarged meeting of the CMC where he declared that henceforth the single determining criteria for promotion for PLA personnel would be their political reliability.
The Absence of Air Power in India’s Security Narratives
India’s security narrative of the region has been largely driven by the coercive diplomacy which China has chosen to pursue as a part of its national security strategy. Border stand offs in Arunachal in the near recent past and Ladakh currently, underscore India’s ever-present continental challenge due to unresolved boundaries with its largest neighbour. On the other hand, the rising maritime muscle flexing by China on its Eastern and Southern seaboards is expanding from a South East Asian context into a wider Indo-Pacific domain. Both these scenarios impact India directly, but differently.
कोविड के काल में विवेकानंद
कोविड के इस संकट में आज चारों ओर विषाद और निराशा फैले हुए हैं। यह निराशा स्वाभाविक है। कई लोग मारे जा चुके है। चारों तरफ से बुरी खबरें आ रही हैं। कई परिवारों में तो थोड़े-बहुत दिनों के अंतराल में ही कई सदस्यों का निधन हो गया। अब यह वायरस ग्रामीण आबादी में फैल रहा है। टीके, दवा और अस्पताल सब की कमी है। स्वास्थ्य ढांचा बिल्कुल चरमरा गया है।
