@Joe Shearer @jbgt90 In all honesty, Nehru, and Indra Gandhi, did a good job for their country. Now when I look at Rahul, I wonder whats the real story, should he become PM, by some miracle, will he be a mommy's boy, or will he actually uses his own brain.

If not him, who has Congress thought of for the top position?

That's yours, J, when you are up. You know how I feel about the Congress, and I won't annoy you by repeating it.

There was an unwritten rule in the congress that another Gandhi would never be the PM , they will always be heading the party . the PM candidate IMHO this time around will be P Chitambaram !!!

This reminds me of Narsimha Rao (hope I spelled his name correctly). He was not given enough credit, for his economic reforms. Quiet guy, who achieved quiet a lot?

A huge achiever! He was also a very effective foreign minister in his time.

He was a seasoned politician , he let MMS do the changes the economy needed and took all the heat without letting MMS feel it . was a wonderful man , never given his due.

REALLY sorry to hear that, J. What you outlined verbally was most convincing. Take your time, but do include all those facets:
  1. The Pros and Cons of the defence against the Chinese PLAN;
  2. The South China Sea;
  3. The Straits of Malacca;
  4. Defence of the East Coast and of the Bay of Bengal;
  5. Guarding the fishery assets of an already diminished and severely polluted Bay of Bengal;
  6. Regional alliances; are the Aussies any good? or should we look further away?
  7. The need to broaden the footprint of the Unified Command;
  8. Guarding the western seas: counter-attacks and our own vulnerability;
  9. The Pakistan objective;
    1. Submarines with the PN;
    2. Aircraft component devoted by Pakistan for maritime duties;
    3. Surface ships;
    4. Chinese intervention;
    5. Poseidons vs. Su 30 MKI with maritime intervention stand-off weapons;
    6. Helicopter carriers;
  10. Any need for strategic intervention;
  11. The tussle between IN and IA for marine forces;
  12. Equipment for such interventions;
  13. Does the IN need carriers? How many? Why?
  14. Are carriers alone enough? What else is needed?
  15. Land-based maritime search and attack aircraft;
  16. Places to develop ship-building capacity.
  17. Time horizons needed - 10 years or a 100 years?
  18. Interfaces with other two services.
  19. Strategic weapons and their deployment.
