    Every new essay must address issues that others have not been able to do. Else, it only incrementally adds to previous knowledge. In this pursuit, I must congratulate you because I haven’t read an authentic article except yours that compares the naval surface and sub-surface platforms of China and India and does our own SWOT analysis based on that.

    Such original thought process has made me a fan of yours. I have been reading Andrew Erickson and others who write this well. However, most of their analyses, if not all, is focused on the implications for the US.

    I look forward to more such articles from you.
