India-Pak N-war: 21 mn may die, half of ozone layer will vanish September 29, 2016 20:45

Hypothetical as it maybe the detrimental point here would be who defends and who is the Aggressor. Granted Pakistan has never been able to overpower India but neither has India been able to eliminate or eternally neutralize the threat of Pakistan the way Israel did with Egypt and Jordan. If India and Pakistan fought a war detonating 100 nuclear warheads (around half of their combined arsenal), each equivalent to a 15-kiloton Hiroshima bomb, more than 21 million people will be directly killed, about half the world’s protective ozone layer would be destroyed, and a “nuclear winter” would cripple the monsoons and agriculture worldwide. Pakistan has an estimated 110 to 130 nuclear warheads as of 2015–an increase from an estimated 90 to 110 warheads in 2011–according to this report from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a global disarmament advocacy. India is estimated to have 110 to 120 nuclear warheads. It does not really matter if India has fewer nuclear weapons than Pakistan, IndiaSpendreported in April, 2015, primarily because of the doctrine of “mutually assured destruction”, or MAD, as it is commonly known (See this IndiaSpend report for more about India’s nuclear weapons program). 66% Pakistan’s nuclear weapons on ballistic missiles As many as 66% Pakistani nuclear warheads are mounted on 86 land-based ballistic missiles, according to Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists data estimates. Pakistan’s Hatf (named after the sword of Prophet Muhammad) series of ballistic missiles has been developed–and is still under development–keeping India in mind. A major attack by Pakistan’s nuclear-tipped medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs) would likely target India’s four major metropolitan cities–New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai (depending on where the missile is fired from), according to Sameer Patil, fellow, national security, ethnic conflict and terrorism at Gateway House, a think tank in Mumbai. The MRBMs would also target “the major commands of the Indian Army”, Patil told IndiaSpend. Nearly half (40) of Pakistan’s ballistic missile warheads could be mated to Ghauri (named after 12th-century Afghan king Shahbuddin Ghauri, also known as Muhammad of Ghauri) MRBMs. The missile has a claimed range of 1,300 km and can target Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Bhopal and Lucknow, according to this 2006 report on Pakistan’s ballistic missile programme by the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bengaluru. Pakistan has an estimated eight warheads which could be mated to the Shaheen (Falcon) II. This MRBM has a range of 2,500 km and can target most major Indian cities, including Kolkata on the east coast.   India’s triad: Submarine, missile and aircraft India possesses weapons of mass destruction in the form of nuclear weapons and, in the past, chemical weapons. Though India has not made any official statements about the size of its nuclear arsenal, recent estimates suggest that India has 110 nuclear weapons consistent with earlier estimates that it had produced enough weapons-grade plutonium for up to 75–110 nuclear weapons. Biological weapons: India has a well-developed biotechnology infrastructure that includes numerous pharmaceutical production facilities and bio-containment laboratories (including BSL-3 and BSL-4) for working with lethal pathogens. It also has highly qualified scientists with expertise in infectious diseases. Some of India's facilities are being used to support research and development for biological weapons (BW) defence purposes. India has ratified the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and pledges to abide by its obligations. There is no clear evidence, circumstantial or otherwise, that directly points toward an offensive BW program. India does possess the scientific capability and infrastructure to launch an offensive BW program, but has chosen not to do so. In terms of delivery, India also possesses the capability to produce aerosols and has numerous potential delivery systems ranging from crop dusters to sophisticated ballistic missiles. India's no-first-use policy: India has a declared nuclear no-first-use policy and is in the process of developing a nuclear doctrine based on "credible minimum deterrence." In August 1999, the Indian government released a draft of the doctrine  which asserts that nuclear weapons are solely for deterrence and that India will pursue a policy of "retaliation only".

Nag, Trivikram's Helping Hand to Premam September 29, 2016 14:56

Apparently, Nagarjuna is willing his son Naga Chaitanya to score a commercial hit. Apart from lending voice over, Nagarjuna has also essayed a cameo in Premam directed by Chandoo Mondeti. As revealed by Nag, he will appear in climax episode of the film.Another interesting update about the film is star writer-cum-director Trivikram Srinivas has penned dialogues for Nagarjuna's voice over in Premam. Radha Krishna, one of the producers of the film is very close to Trivikram with whom he made three movies such as Julayi, S/O Satyamurthy and A Aa, might have convinced the director to lend his helping hand for the film.And Trivikram also shares good rapport with Nagarjuna, as the former penned dialogues for few of the latter's films including Manmadhudu, might be other reason for the director accepting to take part in the film. Surely, Trivikram's dialogues for Nag's portions will have great impact on Premam.Chaitu's uncle Venkatesh has also essayed a cameo and the role is said to be uproarious. Shruti Haasan, Anupama Parameswaran and Madonna Sebastian are female leads opposite Naga Chaitanya.Meanwhile, Premam is done with all formalities including censor and the movie is slated to grace theaters on October 7th.

Captured terrorists hailing from PoK or Pakistan have confessed to their training in Pakistan or in a Pakistan-controlled region,” Singh said.PM Modi  informed President Pranab Mukherjee, Vice President, and former Prime Minister Manhmohan Singh before conducting surgical strikes. Sources have told TIMES NOW that 8 surgical strikes were carried out by Indian Army, massive terrorist casualties reported.Pakistan, in a statement issued, has said: "At least two Army men were killed as Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged fire over the Line of Control in “Azad Jammu and Kashmir”.

PM Modi Hold Meeting with All Top Ministers September 29, 2016 12:31

Prime Minister Narendra Modi this morning called an urgent meeting of the country's top ministers. The meeting was held to review security after Pakistan violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, days after an army camp in Uri was attacked, leaving 18 soldiers dead.The Cabinet Committee on Security which includes the Defence, Home and Foreign Ministers is to be followed by a briefing that includes representatives of the Defense Ministry.  Sources said "a significant announcement related to the Line of Control is likely, possibly explaining India's response to cross-border firing by Pakistani troops. PM Modi postponed another meeting to next week that was to look at possibly downgrading Pakistan's status as a trading partner."Today's security meeting was attended also by National Security Adviser Ajit Doval. The Defence Ministry's inclusion in the press briefing that is expected soon is both unusual and significant as so far, the government has indicated that its campaign against Pakistan will largely be centred around diplomatically isolating it.  In line with that strategy, the Prime Minister said he will not travel in November to Pakistan to attend the regional SAARC summit.  Three other countries of the 8-member SAARC have joined India's boycott.
