On Sagariksa Missile Test
Opinion - Editorials
Sagarika’s significance
"The successful test of the Sagarika missile marks a public declaration of the progress India has made towards establishing its own submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) capability."
Quite generous of Chindu to have a word of praise for Bharat Desh. But, let us not get carried away as the Chief has got a job to do, dictated by Chindu's destiny, spreading his master's glory all over Bharat.
Now comes Chindu's gratuitous advice to our armed forces.
"Media reports speak of a plan to build by 2015 a fleet of three nuclear submarines, each carrying 12 nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles. It is instructive, however, to remember that although China launched its first Xia-class nuclear submarine capable of carrying ballistic missiles in 1981, a missile was successfully launched from it only seven years later. The political implications aside, Indian defence scientists and naval personnel have several technological hurdles to overcome before they achieve their dream of SLBM capability."
See the inevitable comparison that Chindu thinks obligatory and as usual, the condescending tone and advice. The Chief seems to tell the armed forces: Don't try to be smart and ambitious. Even the great Chinese (my heroes and role models) took seven years.... etc. etc.

On BJP's Budget reaction
Look at how every statement of Sinha is interjected by chindu's statements like "but he was not able to give any figures", "although the highest growth rate recorded during those six years" etc. And the subtle use of quotes for “moderate interest” and “high growth rate”.Agree that some of the points made are facts but I presume chindu wouldn't have taken the care to point out these "facts" to the reader if it was a congress or commie making some statements.A case in point being this report
Ofcourse Chindu does not see the need for Mr Yechury and Dasgupta to back up any of their statements with facts.

New reason for Chindu to complain - India signs deal with Israel.
