NSG membership: Ex-BARC director Kakodkar suggests solution to address non-proliferation, energy requirement 6.7.2016 DNA: Opinion
With China blocking India's membership to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and New Delhi firmly expressing displeasure at the tactics used by Beijing, ace nuclear scientist and former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission Dr Anil Kakodkar on Wednesday called for a midway solution that meets both the non-proliferation conditions as well as energy requirements of the country. The former Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) director said a Thorium and an unenriched Uranium fuelled pressurised heavy-water reactor (PHWR) meets both these objectives to a large extent. A PHWR is a nuclear reactor, commonly using unenriched natural uranium as its fuel, which uses heavy water as its coolant and neutron moderator. "Different countries have approached nuclear energy differently. Most of the countries have gone for large reactors because of economy of scales. Nuclear energy is actually growing, but it is growing in countries where nuclear energy already existed. There are emerging economies where there is ...

Diplomatic blitzkrieg 27.6.2016 DNA: Opinion
In the end it went right down to the wire. And Indian diplomacy covered itself in glory with the way it handled this complex engagement. New Delhi openly took on China in a manner few states have dared in recent times. By so doing it has laid down new terms for global politics and set new parameters for Indian foreign policy. India failed to secure a seat at the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) but Indian diplomacy never looked more self-assured and confident. India has made its intention clear of playing in the big league and the world has taken note. Yet those who understand diplomacy to incessantly chant the mantra of non-alignment only see failure in this and that too the failure of one man — Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Terming the developments at the NSG meet in Seoul as an “embarrassment” to India, the Congress has advised the Prime Minister to realise that diplomacy needs “depth and seriousness and not public tamasha.” This is a strange indictment without recognising the imperative for India of ...
