Highlights of India Today 6th March 2017, issue: With India growing as a self-sufficient space power, the cover story, Unmade in India, looks at the country’s dependence on imported arms and how it has landed the world’s third largest armed forces in a fix. Talking about the defence budget for 2017, the story looks at the challenges India's armed forces are facing with about 60 per cent of the military hardware being imported making India the world's largest arms importer. The story on the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections, A New Spring in their Stride, looks at how the BJP is banking on PM Modi's charisma and a split in the Dalit-Muslim vote to take charge of the state this spring. In an exclusive interview, BJP's national president Amit Shah says that all the potential chief ministers that BJP has for UP are better than Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati. He also talks about the ruling party's strategies and prospects in what is a crucial election not just for him, but also for his mentor Prime Minister Narendra Modi. On the other end, the story, Everybody Loves a Good Blockade, looks at the elections in Manipur and how the move to create seven new districts may work for CM Ibobi Singh even as a four-month economic blockade of two highways continues, and nobody seems to know or care how it might end. The entertainment and cinema story, VR Like This Only, talks about Bollywood’s latest fascination with virtual reality and how it is a new platform for storytelling albeit with immersive worlds and soundscapes impossible in 2D or 3D. The story, Much Ado About Vaccines, talks about how India’s decision to cut off ties with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a partner in the prime minister’s new vaccine strategy, can put us all at risk. The issue also comes with two free magazines: Simply Mumbai and Simply Pune.
