Air chief PV Naik in favour of flexing missile power - Hindustan Times

Air chief PV Naik in favour of flexing missile power - Hindustan Times

Yes I am agree to the point of Air Chief, India should built long range missiles but in phase wise manner of 3-4 years but it must ensure that the project gets completed in specified / planned time frame because generally all the project of Indian Research are very late increasing cost and reducing their importance and worth.

India must try to sell its technology to the needed country like its counterpart part US, Russia, China and others are doing as selling of arms & technology will give boost of Indian Economy and provide us funds for future research programs. It will also attract our talented minds to stay in India which will further strengthen the foundation of country.

Definitely India should not have first strike policy but must be capable of answering any wrong initiative of enemy.

We have the second biggest Army in the world but it seems that this army is without teeth, having big shortage of officers the steps must be taken to ensure that we have strong plans, manpower and modern ways of defence equipment & technology with us to show the World.

It must be ensure that while developing our nation we remain focused on our environment.

SALUTE TO MY GREAT NATION WHO IS SUFFERING FROM CORRUPTION

INDIAN ARMY UNDER STRESS


INDIAN ARMY UNDER STRESS

Indian army, the second largest army (with 1.13 million soldiers and officer) in the world after china is facing problem of STRESS among its officers and soldiers. Many of its officers and soldiers are committing suicide or they attack their colleagues and seniors. In such incidents army lost twice the number of soldiers compared to dies in action /battle field.

Soldiers are stressed because of relentless counter-insurgency operations, posting in far flung areas of J&K, North East on bayonet edge. They have to fight with heavily armed militants and don’t get proper sleep/rest followed by lack basic amenities, poor accommodation facilities and very little salary. They also feel helpless to solve their problems faced by their due to their posting at far-flung areas. Seniors themselves takes the leave, enjoy good facilities and other benefits while soldiers are even not getting a part of it.

Defence Institute of Psychological Research (DIPR) study says denial of leave, humiliation and harassment by seniors, absence of leaders. Currently Army is facing leadership crisis at middle level because an average middle Indian gets the double starting salary compared to the salary of Army personnels.

To overcome the stress problem DIFR recommended that the psychologist to soldier ratio should be at least 1 : 1000 and as a long term step separate cadre of psychologists should be created in army.

As of now soldiers are allowed to frequency call their families regularly and list of Do’s and Don’ts to also handle psychological problems.

Company commanders had also been given manual which will help them to identify soldiers who are stressed.

Army says that it is a “testing time” for the force and it will pass because foundations are strong.
