    India's top secret nuclear submarine project reached another decadal milestone last month with the launch of a second ballistic missile submarine, the Arighat . On November 19, Union defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman cracked the auspicious coconut on the fin of the submarine in the drydock of the Ship Building Centre (SBC) in Visakhapatnam in a low-key ceremony. Following this, the SBC's drydock was flooded and the submarine quietly floated out. It will be at least another three years before the navy commissions the Arighat. The event skipped the high-profile public ceremony of the Arihant's launch in 2009 even as the...

    An Indian state has approved the death penalty for paedophiles who rape girls younger than 12. A bill titled 'the punishment method' unanimously passed the Madhya Pradesh assembly on Monday. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan declared: 'People who rape 12-year-old girls are not human, they are demons. They do not have the right to live.' He added: 'There are people in society who can be set right only by severe punishments. [The bill] will deal with them. We will also raise awareness in society against such crimes.'

  • While We Await the Court’s Ruling on Masterpiece Cakes, A Dose of Reality from India

    12/06/2017 4:39:38 AM PST · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | December 6, 2017 | Michael Brown
    The Supreme Court has now heard the arguments in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, a case that pits gay rights against religious rights. But a ruling is not expected until June 2018. That gives us plenty of time to ask ourselves, “Would I lose my livelihood because of my religious convictions? Am I willing to suffer for my faith?” In America, an increasing number of Christians have answered yes to that question, including Jack Philips of Masterpiece Cakeshop. People like this should be commended for their steadfastness and should serve as examples to the rest of the Church: We show love...

    The recent climate conference at Bonn signaled the end of the climate doomsday movement, and provided a compelling reason for India’s resignation from the Paris agreement.At Bonn, India and China (highest emitter of carbon dioxide), voiced the concerns of developing countries against restrictive climate policies that threatened the growth of their economies.India, for example, faces huge challenges in its energy sector. Nearly 300 million people in India still have no access to uninterrupted electricity.The major challenges at Bonn, however, came from an unlikely camp—the top emitters in the developed world, namely the U.S. and Germany.The Bonn proceedings were not any...

    Is India Testing China Out on Their Disputed Border Again? China ‘firmly’ opposes to Indian president’s latest visit to disputed Arunachal Pradesh By Charlotte Gao November 21, 2017 Two months after China and India diffused tensions on the Doklam standoff, there seems to be a new risk looming over the two countries. On November 19, Indian President Shri Ram Nath Kovind paid his first visit since assuming office in July to Arunachal Pradesh — a long-disputed territory between Beijing and New Delhi. India categorizes Arunachal Pradesh as the northeastern-most state of the country, but the Chinese government has never recognized...

Every country also attempts to acquire technologies and weaponry to keep pace with its "area of interest" in pursuance of the larger national aim.

The great visionaries of Indian Defence Forces along with the scientific fraternity, fully supported by the Government, have constantly been making efforts to remain prepared to march ahead with the growing national ambitions.

    NEW DELHI: India's attempt to buy a nuclear attack submarine from Russia appears to have triggered a misinformation campaign by defence lobbyists. Yesterday, Russian news portal Kommersant reported that the Indian Navy had permitted a US technical crew into top secret compartments of India's existing Russian-built nuclear submarine, the INS Chakra, in clear violation of the terms of the contract between India and Russia. India leased this submarine in 2012 for approximately US$700 million and is in talks to acquire another. According to Kommersant, which referred to this as "an unprecedented scandal," the incident "threatens to seriously complicate the negotiations...

    Seven years ago, Amol Yadav announced to his family and friends that he would build an aeroplane on the roof of a boxy apartment building in the teeming Indian city of Mumbai. Incredulous friends and family members asked the young pilot how he planned to bring the plane down once it was complete. "I really don't know," he told them. Mr Yadav, who flies twin-engine turboprop planes for a living, is nothing if not obstinate. The five-storey building, home to his 19-member joint family, didn't have a lift, so they lugged factory lathes, compressors, welding machines, and an imported 180kg...
