    ...Some of the more recent Trump tweets that have elicited sharp responses include his characterization of NATO as ‘obsolete’ and the candid opinion he has voiced apropos German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s refugee policy, which he described as a “catastrophic mistake.” Earlier there was a revisionist reference to the sanctity of the ‘one China’ policy much to Beijing’s ire and in an extraordinary development, some sections of the official media in China even referred to the possibility of a nuclear war! The Trump phase of US politics promises to be turbulent globally and bilaterally . India, like other major powers, will have to carefully monitor how the Obama legacy morphs into the Trump inheritance and the degree to which there will be continuity in past policies and where the reset button is likely to be hit. ...

    ...The public commentary is taking on a contour that is both undesirable and misleading in its binary reduction by way of seeking to either castigate the Narendra Modi government or exonerate it. At the outset is the cardinal principle of robust democracies that the military remains subordinate—but not subservient or unctuous—to the prevailing political dispensation of the nation. The civil-military relationship is distinctive to each country and has a non-linear linkage to the strategic culture associated with the national ethos and the status accorded to the military in the lattice of governance. In the Indian case, the Nehruvian orientation continues to hold sway and the Indian military remains outside the formal rules of business that determine the framework of governance. ...

    ... If major summits are to be assessed by their tangible outcomes, it may be averred that at Goa, the texture and content of the bilaterals overwhelmed the more modest achievements of the BRICS summit. Given the domestic backdrop of the Uri terror attack and the Indian response, Prime Minister Narendra Modi focused consistently on the scourge of terrorism in a resolute manner. Without naming Pakistan, creative euphemisms were invoked including “mother-ship” and a “country that embraces and radiates the darkness of terrorism”. ...

    ... The audacious terror attack on a brigade headquarters in Uri in the early hours of Sunday, September 18, that resulted in the death of 17 Indian soldiers and injured over 20 troops is a very serious operational lapse.That four armed terrorists could kill so many soldiers in a fortified army camp is an illustration of the asymmetrical advantage that has progressively accrued to the adversary.The loss of uniformed personnel in this manner against a determined and opaque adversary in the proximity of the LoC (Line of Control) draws attention to two interlinked issues: The complexity of the proxy war that Indian security forces have been dealing with in Jammu and Kashmir for 26 years and the chinks that the enemy is able to periodically exploit with impunity. ...

    ...Singapore’s former president S.R.Nathan (SRN), who passed away on August 22, was among the principal architects of the city-state along with the legendary Lee Kuan Yew.Among the less-known of his contributions (some of them bordering on the extraordinary) was building India-Singapore ties — and by extension, the Indo-ASEAN relationship that was at the core of Prime Minister Narasimha Rao’s “look east policy”.During the Cold War decades, India’s relations with the South East Asian nations were, to put it mildly, frosty.Delhi saw the states in the region as parts of the US-led anti-communist block.“Coca-Cola republic” was one of the more sticky and, in hindsight, avoidable phrases of the Nehru years; the view from the other side about India was not too flattering either. ...
