    Positive signs of emerging India. The day these missiles are availed to the defence forces is a day of joy that will proclaim India to the world. While the news confirm India’s ability, to fulfil India’s strategic advancement needs a clear and unbiased vision. Although India does not harbour any intension of expansion of her territory, there are neighbours who enviously look at India with malicious strategic thrust into Kashmir and Arnachal Pradesh. The weakness of India to clearly define her boarders with her neighbours coupled with a lack of military power to assert herself have left a legacy of turmoil that India today struggles to resolve. 1971 provided India a golden opportunity to evolve as a power which India missed. The development within three to four decades around India is hugh which entailed India for a cold start in two frontal confrontation. India needs to double up her arsonel if that is the criteria that Indian defence should be based. A strong army, navy and air force is the need of the hour. In fifteen years India need to innovate new technology to compete with the developed world as they will not be sleeping. Stealth is the mantra in wars in the future. India must develop this capability together with numbers.
