Is Intelligence Bureau [IB] of Govt. of India engaging in Anti National activities & Criminal Activities?
As I am Strongly Supporting  Indigenization of Defence Products, there are many direct & indirect attacks against me, for many years now.  As journalists &Defence Analysts from all over India knows, I am a strong supporter of DRDO, HAL, ADA, BEL, Indian Navy etc. in their efforts in developing & producing weapons locally in India. Those journalists attending Aero-India & other Defence events may recall many instances when I did that. In 2015 Aero-India, in the official Press Conference of the then Air Chief Marshall, you may remember me shooting point blank at him: I told "Chief, the Indian Air Force is trying to Scuttle the LCA Project. ............ "
I was the first one to suggest to ADA that the length of LCA should be increased by 1. 1 mLCA Mark 1A & then again to a 2. Medium ClassLCA Mark 2.   etc.  etc.....
This has led to a lot of …

When a defiant President continues unconstitutional actions with external support, D - FARPAE is the solution for Maldives Crisis
In a cold morning on 3 November 1988, it was serene day as usual, in my home village near Kottayam, Kerala, except for one significant thing. The usual musical sounds of different hues of bird species in my lush green village was drowned by some bigger birds flying even higher – the beautiful metal birds of Indian Air Force belonging to the An-32 & Il-76 species. Though I was only a class eight student at that time, as I was deeply interested in Defence & Foreign affairs, it was very clear that a lot of military planes meant only one thing – a military engagement with one of our southern neighbour…

          China a Universal Rowdy: Time for World Nationsto Rectify that        
Though the India-China standoff that has been going for about a month is major news across the world, there are many facts about the conflict in general, and the aggressive nature of China in particular, that stays hidden from the casual scrutiny. Over and above that, there are many more negative facts about China which are intentionally ignored, because of China’s wealth and might, but more because of the hypocrisy prevalent in the western world. Which make the western nations go soft on a belligerent China. Then cry foul when they themselves are at the receiving end.




Even though the standoff between the two largest armies in the world is a minor one, a…

Pro-Active engagement is the right action for India in Maldives
Article by Dijo Thomas   Defence Analyst

Indian political leaders, traditionally, were misers in using the Pro-active action and/or Military option, even when warranted. This, even though earned us a label of "Country that stands for peace"; if you analyse in the macro level, were counterproductive most of the time.  Due to this irrational & paranoid aversion for Pro-active action / Military option, even when unavoidable; had led to numerous and substantial setbacks economically, politically, militarily etc. Some of them plague us even today. Maldives itself is a very good example. It is time for us to learn from history and avoid repeating mistakes in the past.
When Mohamed Nasheed, Maldives' first democratically-elected President, was unlawfully ousted in 2012, India kept mum.  This eventually led to Abdulla Yameen being elected as the President. Though he pretended to be India's…
