Magazine Description

In this issue

GEOPOLITICS February 2018 issue focuses on why the Modi government needs to take serious steps to increase India's military capabilities to maintain deterrence, in view of the threat of a two-front war. The cover story takes an indepth look at the Rafale deal: Starting with the government's decision to purchase 36 Rafale fighter jets, the issue focuses on the allegations that the deal has been marked by overpricing and crony capitalism. Also, a report on why the Rafale case between India and France will be a win-win situation for both the countries and why for the Modi government, procuring the Rafale was not a matter of choice but one of compulsion. The issue also deals with the Indian Army's moves to acquire new assault rifles and carbines to meet a long overdue requirement. A special report on the release by the Indian Navy of a detailed Request for Information for the procurement of 57 Multi-Role Carrier Borne Fighters. The diplomacy section deals with the important topic of Beijing systematically weakening the ASEAN as an organisation and why it is time New Delhi India should play a pro-active "Act-East" policy by having an Asian QUAD comprising India, Vietnam, Indonesia and Japan to synchronise their economies for trade, investment and manufacturing.
