New Delhi … News Time

Former Indian police officer NC Asthana’s new insight into security issues in a new book states that India has no explanation for the ideological and strategic objectives of its adversaries Pakistan and China. No one can be defeated in battle. According to the newspaper, The Wire on Tuesday analyzed the book ‘National Security and Conventional Arms Race: Specter of a Nuclear War’, citing this book. It has been said that on the one hand there is the rhetoric of militants and the media and on the other hand there is the fact that India cannot defeat any country militarily. Siddharth Varadarajan, editor of the prestigious current portal Analyzing the Book, quoted NC Asthana as saying that instead of spending huge sums on importing expensive weapons, India should address the security challenges facing China and Pakistan. With that in mind, we must strengthen ourselves internally and find non-military solutions, including diplomacy.

Due to his scholarly insights, Asthana’s columns are widely read and he authored or co-authored 48 books during his tenure. Siddharth Varadarajan says that he is particularly interested in politics and the bureaucrats are known for their harsh criticism of the establishment. N.C. Asthana also shed light on militant-minded politics, which he said has been a popular topic in India for the past six years. Under the illusion that India had somehow become magically invincible, he observed that a large number of Indians seemed ready for war. The country’s claim to invincibility is reinforced by the innumerable arms imports, NC Asthana said, citing figures of 14 14 billion spent by India on arms imports in the five years since 2014. This does not include the undisclosed price of 36 Rafale aircraft purchased from Kaye and Dassault Aviation. But even more, India estimates it will spend 130 130 billion on arms imports over the next decade, including more than 100 more expensive fighter jets, in a bid to scrap the Modi government’s 126 Rafale contracts. To prevent the decline caused.

Varadarajan, quoting from the book, wrote that as soon as the arrival of the first Rafale Rafale was made public, each of these purchases was made public by the media in such a way that India used it to defeat its enemies. The dust will bite but the reality is quite different. Asthana argues that the bizarre import of conventional weapons can never guarantee a lasting solution to the military problem posed by Pakistan or China, as both are nuclear-armed countries and have no decisive defeat on the battlefield. Can be given the book observes that given the story of India’s invincibility, the lack of militant mentality should be evident, despite the fact that, as has been shown in the last few years, war patriotism has reached its highest level in India.

“Although conventional weapons can be strategically useful in short-term warfare, the danger lies in increasing provocation, which is difficult to control at the best of times, but especially at such times,” he wrote. It is difficult when militant-minded politics has thwarted public opinion. Asthana believes that the rhetoric of taking advantage of Pakistan’s hostility for electoral gain has made Indian leaders the victims of its own rhetoric, where it now has a one-dimensional policy that is inconsistent with Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal. Realistically, quoting Napoleon, he writes that if they want peace, they should avoid tricks that could lead to the use of weapons.
