Look out of the window, the world is changing!

When ever I am traveling I realize how the world around us is so dynamic, it is changing rapidly with every second. Whenever you look inside your train everything seems so be static, calm and relaxed, but the reality can be recognized only if you "look out of the window". Same is your life! Whenever you are surrounded by everything that you encounter on a daily basis make your feel nothing is changing, it's only when you go out of your comfort zone you will realize how the world is! So dynamic!!

I feel that I had been sleeping for a while unaware of how much of the world has passed beside me! Let me give you an example:
Today I have attended the xConf an internal event of my company, only then I've realized that where I stand now. once considered as the top notch person where ever I went, proving once and again to everyone what I am.

But now? feeling reluctant even to think about anything I have ever achieved if any!!! Life'z just amazing, it depends on how do you see it.

Indian Defence needs a boost

It is an irony if not madness, on one side we call ourselves as a future super power and on another side the dwindling state of our armed forces. Our forces are one of the best in the world, no doubt. But, ill equipped to take on China. China is investing heavily in modernising its infrastructure, its defence forces. We harp out loud about the 11 Billion plan to acquire Medium multi-role fighter air crafts.

It is time to involve private sector into defence sector as well, like America all defence organisations should have some competition else they will not be accountable.

I have few questions, if any one bother to answer:

1. Why are we so behind in constructing an advanced Tank, why is ARJUN taking so much of time, and are the parameters met in recent trials?

2. What happened to LCA, why are we still procuring some parts from abroad? what is the current state of the Indainisation of its engine?

3. Why are we buying and spending billions of dollars on some scrap like Admiral Gorshkov.

4. Why don't we compel the equipment providers for Technology transfer of joint research and development.

5. Why can't we involve private players and provide incentives for innovative designs?

Forget about conventional war? Our state of affairs is really pitiable if it comes to non-conventional wars.

Are we ready or can imagine a Cyber-war? Sadly this question sounds like a joke!!
