  • Episode 33 Israel Hamas Conflict

    05/06/2021 Duration: 01h09min

    India Rising: Strategic Affairs Conversations with Mohal and Kishor @mohaljoshi @veggiediplomat The month of Ramadan is generally tense in Jerusalem. The Palestinian Arabs wish to pray in the Al Aqsa mosque which is situated in the walled Old City. And fearing unrest, Israel deploys its defence forces to control the crowds who come to pray over there. This year was no different. However, what added to the already tense situation was the verdict about the ownership of land in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in East Jerusalem in addition to the Jerusalem Day celebrations planned by ultra right wing parties in Israel. This led to a highly volatile situation which was milked by the Hamas militant group in a rather unexpected fashion. In this episode we dig deep into what triggered the crisis and what was India’s stand in the whole situation.

    India Rising: Strategic Affairs Conversations with Mohal and Kishor @mohaljoshi @veggiediplomat Just about 2 months ago, India was sceptical about the possibility of getting involved in a two front war. Surprisingly, India has managed to achieve not just a disengagement by the Chinese People's Liberation Army at the Line of Actual Control in Pangong Tso region but also a commitment to ceasefire by the Pakistan Army along the Line of Control. How did India manage it and what are its implications?

Among other things, trade deal was expected to be signed between the two nations, but didn't materialise. Was it a mere irritant in the overall ties or a deal breaker? Have the bilateral ties evolved beyond momentary trade deal failures and poised to think strategic and global?

    22/11/2019 Duration: 36min

    India Rising: Strategic Affairs Conversations with Mohal and Kishor @mohaljoshi @veggiediplomat The Rajapaksas are back in style in Sri Lanka. While the younger brother Gotabaya Rajapaksa won the Presidential election winning handsomely against Sajith Premadasa, the elder brother Mahinda Rajapaksa is now the caretaker Prime Minister until the next Parliamentary elections after the incumbent Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe resigned after the loss in the Presidential elections. We try to find the answers to the following questions: • Was the victory of Gotabaya Rajapaksa in the recently concluded Presidential Elections in Sri Lanka a foregone conclusion? • With the younger brother as the President, is the elder brother Mahinda Rajapaksa’s bid to unquestioned political supremacy in the island nation unchecked? • Is there a possible danger of the island getting entangled in Sinhala nationalism? • What happens to the goodwill projects carried out by India to help Sri Lankan Tamils to rebuild after the bl

  • India Rising: Ep 22 - Chennai Connect and India-China ties

    14/10/2019 Duration: 57min

    India Rising: Strategic Affairs Conversations with Mohal and Kishor @mohaljoshi @veggiediplomat This week Chinese President Xi Jinping visited South Indian city of Chennai for an informal summit with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This was the second edition of the informal summits that China and India are having, with the first one happening in 2018 in China in the city of Wuhan – hence, gaining the name ‘Wuhan Spirit’. We try to find the answers to the following questions about ''Chennai Connect': ● Did Modi and Xi manage to revive the now-dead now-alive Wuhan Spirit? ● Has New Delhi managed to drive home the point about it’s redlines to Beijing? ● Does India and China have enough modalities to work on improving their ties in the next 12 months? ● Is it too early to claim that Chennai Connect was a huge success without talking about tangible benefits?
