    The idiocy of Indian defense cane be seen from the photographs in which there is not a single defense personnel. Civil dictatorship will exacerbate our defense shortcomings.

      Very true. How sad that the defence forces are not being fully utilized for their strategic planning abilities. The bureaucrats are not capable of filling this need. But mistakenly thinking that they need to safeguard their position, they do not do so.
