Pak targets Lashkar, Jaish with 'intelligence-based ops'

Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad launched to fight terrorism across country, reports Ajai Shukla. Even those sceptical of Pakistan's insistence that it is cracking down on jihadists of every hue are now admitting that something has clearly changed from the days when only token action would be taken against 'India-focussed' groups.

Three years after Modi rattled DRDO, little has changed

In 2014, the prime minister criticised the communication gap between DRDO scientists, who remained ensconced in their laboratories, and the soldiers on the borders, says Ajai Shukla.   In 2014, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the annual awards ceremony of the Defence Research and Development Organisation, he jolted the self-congratulatory annual function by insisting on timely delivery and innovation.

Parrikar could have been a great defence minister but...

Why General Rawat alerted the world to Cold Start

Where is the go-getter Parrikar?

Instead of ramming through change, the defence minister has tied his own hands by placing reform at the mercy of numerous committees, says Ajai Shukla. The military has started 2017 with a fresh slate on several fronts. The army and the air force both have new chiefs, an opportunity for fresh ideas and approaches. There is hope that the military could soon get its first tri-service commander, creating badly needed synergy between the army, navy and air force. Across the border, Pakistan, too, ...

Even as General Rawat was ceremonially taking ...
