INS Arihant - India's nuclear powered submarine ..
Not only is India making its presence felt in air and land preparedness, starting the sea trials of its first nuclear powered submarine makes everyone sit and take notice of this power from Asia.
A responsible power with no aggressive designs, is how the economist PM, Dr Manmohan Singh has clarified Indian position. It will take roughly 2 - 3 years for the submarine to be inducted in the navy.
With this superb master stroke, India has squeezed itself into a global league of nations set to dominate the world in the coming century. With democracy alive and kicking, Indian technological development will reflect as global development on which the world can rejoice.
