    Haaving got the French President to attend is a feather in the cap of narendra Modi. Last year he had got Obama to be the chief guest. Modi deserves praise for raising Indian prestige. Such a thing never happened before.

    Kudos to Narendra Modi. It's an example of Modi's farsightedness. The agreement between the French President Francois Hollande and Narendra Modi to curb Fast spreading Terrorism will go a long way. I was really thrilled seeing French troops participating in the Republic Day Parade.

    The DD coverage of the parade from different angles made the parade look truly spectacular. Comparatively  the French troops looked marching in a very relaxed manner. The motor cycle feats are truly amazing. It was reportedly  the fifth French President attending our Republic Day parade. Wonder if previous PM's also were far sighted by this yardstick.

    Let's wait and see whether it is farsightedness or shortsightedness of Modi. Time will judge. Right now the present move of joining hands with France to fight terrorism, which is engulfing the world with a terrific speed, it looks good. If it is otherwise Modi will disappear into oblivion.

    Modi must also distinguish te wood from the trees. It should not be forgotton tHat in 1965 war with Pak, the French refused to supply ammunition to India for the Mystere fighter. As I have written earlier also lets not count the chickens before tHey are hatched.

    We are way behind China which manufactures its own jets.

    I agree. India has to acquire Self sufficiency in arms manufacturing. In this direction, the Government is doing required efforts. For a beginning, India will be purchasing Rafale  fighter jets from France. For acquiring self sufficiency in Arms making, it takes time. Did we not acquire self sufficiency in Space technology ? ISRO, earlier used to depend upon NASA and other leading Space technological giants. With Modi's " Make in India ", I don't see any reason why we cannot make our own Arms.
