Scribbles on security

3 important things that need consideration... and a lot of thought.

a. Agricultural security and preparedness. There has to be some measure in place to ensure that we are self-sufficient agriculturally. Yes, we are to an extent. But we NEED more. The current model doesn't seem to be working

b. Defense security and self-sufficiency: We are quite pathetic when it comes to this front. Still need to depend on imports to fulfill even basic needs. IAF still is looking around for potential sellers so they can train their young rookie pilots on [PC-7 Pilatus Mark-II]. And they promptly put the pilots on plans which are far inferior to the ones they get trained in. Huh? Don't believe me. Check this
And this is just half the problem. Submarines? Sea faring ships. Well, we need a fair bit of work there too.

c. Energy security: we have done too little and too few on this end too.

Unless we have a firm plan and even firmer implementation of the plans, we are going to muddle around for a fair while.

[I have read that we have some of the best plans on paper - great on strategy but v poor on implementation]
