Article distorts Doval’s meaning. Easier than war is to win by subverting countries from within using civil society:Colour revolutions in Ukraine/Georgia,Arab Spring in Syria.India vulnerable to similar China/Pak/western lobby’s efforts to sharpen cleavages,hinder governance.
“If he (Ajit Doval) has any special ‘fourth-generation warfare’ skills, he better apply them against the big guns ‘occupying’ territories within India, instead of targeting the civil society,” writes M.G. Devasahayam, a retired IAS officer. theprint.in/opinion/ajit-dov…

Do see the thread. These statements from Minister Jaishankar are important as they were made at Russia-India-China dialogue. All these directed at China primarily. Such plain speaking is departure from past. Shows growing Indian confidence.
Translation: China, stop blocking India's bid to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council. The other four members have already signaled their support.

Indeed. This plain speaking has come after enough pampering already. Time has come to openly condemn China like they do India. Whether USA backs off or not, India should be able to define it's boundaries clearly in the global order, without fear or favor.

#CJI should take a couple of cases to study why the trolls? If they are synchronised trolls judiciary needs to introspect rather than ask Central Agencies to deal with the trolls. @KirenRijiju
CJI calls for saving the judiciary from social media trolls, asks central agencies to deal with such ‘synchronised’ attacks opindia.com/2021/11/cji-asks…

How you describe yourself seems most apt: zero!
Brilliant! Congratulations. What a coward you are @KanwalSibal. Refused to respond to a comment, followed up with supercilious bullying, and finally ran for the hills.

Amb. Sibal, I share your concerns regarding the Lancet being used as a stick to hit India with. Richard Horton, its editor has been awarded the Friendship Award from China (CCP more like). He has penned articles against “Sinophobia” and how the West is to blame while playing up..

Thank you for this most enlightening information. I thought Lancet was a fashion magazine till you overwhelmed me with your knowledge.
Does he know Lancet didn't carry out the research? Its a medical journal!

Do tell us when BBC or NYT have been objective/balanced in reporting on India much less friendly/emphatic. We have unfortunate history of what you call “dushmans”inside our country who today applaud negative reporting on India by western media & use it for domestic politicking.

Surprised at the finding. Ha ha. Has been in the Vogue for centuries. Don't you think it is a very late realisation. @WorldBankWater @

You are such an empty cranium, the growth is nominal 7-8% real + 4% inflation! You need something in the cranium to understand this!
I read an article in @EconomicTimes by @TVMohandasPai he claimed that India is poised to achieve 10-11% GDP growth from 2022-2023 onwards. Pai was high on gau mutra I guess 😝 Reason: Modi achived -ve growth from 8% in July 2017 to 4.25% in April 2020 when he was superhero.

.@AmbJohnBolton as the US pursues a G2 world with only a soft-containment strategy for China, why would India step aside from its stated position of strategic autonomy? A genuine decoupling of supply chains and relocation to India would go a long way to enhance Indo-US relations.

Instead of considering disciplinary action against @ManishTewari for stating the obvious on 26/11 in his new book, the Congress Party should reflect on the costs the nation has had to pay on the then-PM's abysmal failure to punish Pakistan for that unparalleled terrorist attack.

Khurshid advances doesn’t retreat (HT today): sees “good Hindu.. repulsed by “cynical,criminal distortion labelled Hindutva”.He’s “told”-doesn’t see it himself-abt IS & Boko Haram’s crimes. Argues hasn’t called Hindutva “terrorist outfit” when comparison imputes that.Over clever.
