India, What Are You Up To?
Started with the willingness of the ruling government of UPA to own civil nuclear energy which they say in order to give light bulb to the children living in villages untouched by modernization. Getting a nod from US with the hyde act and then continued with 123 agreement. Now, though there is a big obstacle from the Left parties and BJP not to operationalize the deal, but government give strong indication that they will move on.
A big question mark come to my mind, is it true that India want to have this nuclear energy to supply electricity power? Me, I am not sure. Because for that purpose India can get it from other ways also, which is even saver and cheaper. I see some possibilities. Main reason will be Pakistan and China. As neighbor and India's enemy which has nuclear power, Pakistan and China become a great threat for India. As India used to have war with both of them. Other reason is, may be wants to be considered more as nuclear country, because India want to be a developed country, developed country must have nuclear power, to show its position to the world, that India is a global player.
Next big issue is about India doing war exercise with other countries. India do war exercise with many countries. To be named are US, Japan, Australia, Singapore, Russia, England, Gulf countries, Thailand. Why so many exercise? I think India's main reason is to show it's non align position. India is close to not only US, or Russia, but also other countries
