Sooner or later, the war will come to an end, but Ukraine will be damaged beyond immediate repair.
China has taken control of the strategic port city of Hambantota in Sri Lanka, Gwadar port of Pakistan, Lekki Deep Seaport in Nigeria, Port of Sudan, Mombasa Port in Kenya, Entebbe airport of Uganda, and many more. China indirectly enters the politics of that country and then dominates its sovereignty.
The world today is becoming a global village in which conflicts are longer localized between two neighbouring nations but have the potential to spin out of control. It’s aptly said-“ It’s easier to start a war but difficult to stop it.”
Modern warfare and expansion of national interests well beyond the frontiers have placed fresh challenges on leadership, in Armed Forces.

COVID has not only changed our life but also our living patterns and ripped the social fabric apart. Initially, when the lockdown happened, everyone was very euphoric about the ‘Work from Home’ concept. It gave the working class, a sense of freedom from dressing up, freedom from pollution and traffic jams while travelling to the office and freedom from strict office timings.
As if Pakistan and China were not enough, the Taliban taking over Afghanistan further adds to the problems. India would perforce have to engage with its neighbours for lasting peace and yet be fully prepared for turbulent times ahead.
China is the only country, in the world today, having an expansionist strategy. It wants to settle the border disputes at own terms.
Delhi High Court passed an order that no advocates will be stopped/ checked by a police officer during the lockdown. Are the advocates immune from COVID? Isn’t it a favour to own brethren?

Given the geopolitical nuances within the Indian Ocean, the Indian Navy must transform itself into a blue water navy.

In the past eighteen months, there has been series of interesting developments defining the contours of the emerging new world order.

I often find the eight lanes being blocked by police barricades, parked trucks/buses, protestors, agitators, social processions and vendors, leaving only one lane for traffic, leading to traffic jams and snarls. But who cares?
China never gives anything free. Islamabad will have to return $21.8 billion of commercial loans and $7.75 billion taken as bilateral debt to Beijing by 2023. Pakistan needs to repay China more than double the amount it owes the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Considering the dismal state of Pakistan’s economy over the past several years it is doubtful if Pakistan can ever return the loans.
