Pakistan’s Water Crisis: Blaming India will not do:

Paper No. 6556                 Dated    29- June-2019

By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan.

Nitin Gadkari, Minister dealing with River waters, said on May 9, 2019 that India will stop Pakistan’s share of water allocated under the Indus Water Treaty. He also mentioned that “India is not bound to follow the Treaty and had plans to divert the water flow to Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.  This statement was perhaps made during the election campaign more for the domestic audience.

Global Power Play Churn and India’s Policy Options-2019.

Paper No. 6552             Dated  19-June-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

India’s foreign policy discourse and strategic analyses have this propensity to lapse into preferences for soft options like ‘Non-Alignment 2.0’ or “Strategic Autonomy’ whenever the geopolitical power play churning becomes challenging as visible in 2019. Both these strategic philosophies are redundant when India has yet to add military muscle to its national aspirational ambitions.
