    Russia sees India as a strategic partner.

    And India sees Russia as a "master" country to rely on when it comes to nuclear, energy, technology, military and other crap that Russia is good at.

    Modi was never bad, you can't say him worse.
    He is 'He-Man' of India.
    He is 15th powerful personality in the world only in 6 months.
    Lets see about the years.
    Modi ji is super PM.
    Don't say anything against Modi ji .......:india::india::india::india::india::india::india:
    he is our PM

    Dude, he was banned by western countries for a long time and his travel sanction was just lifted recently. And being 15th on the list is not something you should be proud of. He is a leader of the world's 2nd most populated and biggest country on the planet, shouldn't he be at least 2nd or 3rd?

    Let's wait a few more years and see whether the human development, living standard, poverty level, corruption index, infrastructure, healthcare, education, welfare systems and GDP per capita of the average Indian improve or not. Time will judge whether he is a brilliant leader or just an another highly praised machine gun with no bullets.

    Better than being an American pet, wagging your tail at your master's every bidding. At least the Russian-Indian partnership is mutual. We give them money and they give us technology. You are like American lapdogs. Once you were their masters, now it's the exact opposite, and the best part is you are in denial. At least Americans and Indians accept that Britain once ruled over us. Live in denial. It's more convenient for both the US and pretty soon the Indians, pretty soon we will take over most of your businesses and leadership positions.

    Your future prime minister will be a Singh or a Patel.

    And Russia is a technology cow.

    Look at it this way, if we start trying to make a FGFA or Brahmos, we would take 10 years longer than they would and spend even more than necessary while trying to do it faster, kinda like China.

    This partnership that we have works very well in our favour and actually less in Russia's favour since we are building up capability really quickly and become less dependent on them, and all the while we are able to keep up or surpass China with very little investment. The Chinese invest $11B in the defence industry every year, while we spend less than $2B. But we are able to keep up.

    It takes a bit of mental capacity to understand this though.

    One thing i understand is that few people are here to start a riot & call names.

    1. If you were not threatened by " THE INDIA " you would not be in this forum which is called indiandefence not uk or us defence
    2. You are not even taking side of your own people (obama etc) & only calling names to our leader because you know that you have incompetent leadership.
    3. If India is so poor please don't send you companies begging Indian's to buy their products.
    4. If you don't like Indians/Asians go tell the doctor you visit, the engineer ,the teacher your children learn from , a lot of your restaurants you visit , the software company whose services you use , the people you complaint to when you are in trouble , the lawyers who help you in case of trouble etc.
    5. I have already said that India is a peace loving country but if threatened we create nations (Bangladesh) not just change their leadership like you.
    6. Stop wasting time of others & start a thread through which we can get into technical ,political or strategic implications of a news/topic etc

    There is a great deal of institutional inefficiency and corruption. Major systemic infirmities.

    We want India to become the preeminent power in Asia, then we need to be realistic with regard to establishing the groundwork to get there. All the infirmities need to be removed first.

    If we're not realistic and cognizant about where we are and what the next steps are in proper sequence, then our expectations are unrealistic for our leaders.

    To build a modern, self-sufficient military we need a modern industry. For modern industry, we need to develop talented and skilled citizenry that compete on a level above our national competition in various international metrics. Why don't we first measure the quality of nutrition and health, the knowledge and intellectual performance tested in academics, of our average school children compared with China and Russia.

    When the people are healthy and the culture harmonius, everything else falls into place for a society.

    We don't need to focus on being a regional power because our competition is then failed states and quasi-theocracies; we're already are a regional superpower and we're just scraping a the bottom of the barrel to continue ranking ourselves with respect to them. That's not the kind of future we want for our people.

    As a people, we need to come to a consensus of where we want to be in the future, which metrics are most important to pay attention to, as well as the time-frame to reach our goals. Then we have objective measure against which to hold our politicians accountable, as well as reliable expectations.

    It is a known fact USA is the master UK, we all know you people serve your master obediently but the irony is few centuries back UK was the master of USA.

    If USA will say that every british have to crap in there pants, everyone of you will do it with a great honor because your master had said so.

    Isn't Modi/BJP rushing up too fast to emerge a semi-super power neglecting internal affairs? Addressing centrifugal issues seems to have no priority. This may prove disastrous.
