India’s serial imports in military hardware continue unabated, with a string of acquisitions being approved and announced recently. There is regular fine-tuning of the Defence Procurement Policy, mostly at the behest of and oriented towards streamlining procedures for acquisitions from foreign suppliers, who have become the mainstay of India’s somewhat breathless defence modernization.

David Cameron, the British Prime Minister visited India recently. His visit caused much more of a flutter in Pakistan than in India. They are still livid with his statement in Delhi that Pakistan is exporting terror. After Zardari's visit to London, both Cameron and Zardari have now decided to forget what was said in Delhi about Pakistan. We will have to wait and see what really happens. In India, the main issue on Cameron's visit was how to pronounce his name – most people called him Cameroon, and not Cameron. May be a hangover of the World Cup. In any case, what is in a name – the foreign media insists on calling Manmohan Singh – Man-Mohaan Singh, though we shudder to think what they will do to Delhi's Chief Minister during the reporting of the Commonwealth Games.
