Pokhran 3 won't help in case of short limited scale war. Even in wide scale war, both parties have a no first use policy.

Great game. Thoroughly enjoyed the characters in it and had more verticality and world interaction than a supposedly AAA game.

Will the people be made accountable and fired if they don't work properly ?

If no then nothing of value has been accomplished.

Hasn't the trade value increased with China since the last year ?

There are many things we lack. Just to start with is proper connectivity. We are more dependent on air bridges, which obviously aren't the best way to transfer items to your frontline positions. Second one being an industry capable of sustaining large scale war and churn out advanced weaponry at the same time.

Things are changing though for the good. But I won't say we are that well prepared in the short term. India can handle a localised small scale war pretty well though.

To add, we need to work on our offensive posture as well. Only way to do that is by building infrastructure and capability upgradation using machinery and technology.

If deployment of multiple bombers and heavy armoured vehicles are for defense God knows what is called aggressive posture.

COMMENT 3d ago

China is basically developing air and ground power facilities at an astounding rate with aim for aggressive / offensive posture and denying air access to IAF in case of potential conflicts.

One can say, they are working to convert today's stalemate assessment to a potential win assessment by development of military infrastructure using the template they used in the SCS.

With no major politician mentioning Galwan, India has been supporting the appeasement policy yet again. No elections, no need to remember soldiers.

COMMENT 4d ago

Pokhran-III must definitely prove megaton-class destructive capability with a fusion bomb test, so the goal of deterrence is reached

India - No first use policy. China - No first use policy.

So, a nuclear test won't achieve anything as in any potential war countries will still ensure that global optics are in their favor, hence won't use any nuclear weapons.

And, any war between India and China will most probably be of small scale and hence, you can forget any nuclear strikes.

Best example: Kargil. Nuclear weapons did not deter the war.

If you are attacked, you have to go to war, you cannot say give me 20 years please, I am not ready yet.

Are you ready for the outcome ? Are you sure that you can take down a economic and industrial power right next door to you in a war who is far superior to where you stand presently ? What if in the process you loose Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh and J&K ? Will you be able to accept this outcome ?

When you go to a war, you do not go to war at the place and time of your enemy's convenience. You select the place, time and mode of war. That's Rule no. 1 of war.

1948, 1962, 1965, 1967, 1971, 1999, Galwan and counting. Enemy chose where and when they would attack first.

You say Balakot strike was a defensive measure?

Yes, it was reactionary and not something that we initiated first.

We can't is just a state of mind,

Lol, lot more goes into deciding whether to go for war or not than a state of mind.

can go deep inside Pakistan and carry out surgical strikes including air strikes,

Didn't happen randomly. It was again a defensive measure from the terrorist attacks which had cost numerous lives.

See the difference for yourself:

Will take 20 years atleast to just catch up to them. And, that is also IF we start taking economy seriously.

Nehru lost yes. But we just can't take back anything. Anyone who says otherwise is a politician. Any action in the past has been defensive, any action in the future will be defensive as well.

1

COMMENT 7d ago

which Nehru called a place where "not even a blade of grass grows"

Same philosophy is still adhered by the present govt. If not then we would have been at some stage of a conflict already after what happened. And, it's true as well. Moreover, we don't have enough firepower or economic might to take back POK and Aksai Chin. Best we can do is hold what we already have. And, be in a short to medium scale war. For long war, we simply aren't prepared militarily, economically, and in terms of production capabilities as well.

I think the sub should make it mandatory for these job requirements to put the salary range and the perks offered or remove the post altogether.

COMMENT 10d ago

Have you used XML/JSON?

Being a frontend guy. I do. And, the answer is still no, never used any tree algos for my job. Most of the time I have 3rd party libraries to solve the task for myself and other half of the time, it's simply not worth it to implement a tree algorithm and ruin other persons time to understand something, for which time complexity simply doesn't matter. Again, it boils down to what role you are working on and therefore you and we might have a different experiences. And, that's OK.

But I work at Microsoft and maybe the problem we solve requires using these

I know even guys at FAANG type organizations who don't use these algos at all and also others who have used them extensively. Boils down to the role.

I don't know why a startup building a product has to compromise on some data structure?

Maybe because in the present the disadvantages of doing it outweighs the advantages of it for a startup looking to establish itself. Early on nobody wants too much code complexity. In time, it might make sense if your business booms one day and you start serving a much more userbase and some optimization becomes inevitable.

So, for someone serving a much smaller userbase than something say Microsoft, features become more important initially than optimizations in my books. And, problems of future can be dealt with as required in the future.

And, the problem starts when these organizations don't tailor a plan for themselves but want to just copy the program from FAANG like organizations because for some reason they have chose to go with it.

Again, there are some organizations who follow a different recruitment path and if someone doesn't want to solve that many leetcode questions can apply at those and be happy with the result instead of crying about things that people already know.

We can agree to disagree. Else this will just go on and on. Lol. Thanks for sharing your experience.

COMMENT 10d ago

With people / students going more and more into specializations, your point is valid if the role demands that you should know graphs in your day-to-day work. I will give you an example. I have never used graphs or trees in my work in last 1.5 years from internship and in full time role as well. And, guess what was asked in the interview ? n-ary tree and some graph related problem.

That's the entire point, ask and judge based on what is relevant today for the role. For future, neither you nor me nor anyone else is ready. And, knowing when to use graphs is the least of the problem.

For initial screening I agree, this is the only way for now. But, this again goes down to luck. You might have solved 100s of problems and yet fail to answer one on a given date.

This is again true if you are looking more at these FAANG type organizations. If someone doesn't want this, look at startups or other organizations where interviews are more role oriented.

COMMENT 10d ago

Why did you not practice graph or DP problems?

Most people don't want to solve these, given how rarely they are going to use it in a real dev job.

Agree that some amount of DSA related questions are necessary but thinking that you need to practice everything and be good at everything is unfair. Someone might not solve graph questions at all, but might be a good developer and hence can read on it and implement the same if required. While arrays / strings are required almost all the time. So, I would rather focus on seeing how someone deals with questions on arrays, than on questions involving graphs.

Notice period is 2 months

Is 2 months the new norm now ? Lol, many of my friends also talk of the same.

parents advise me against it since I'm the only earning member of my family, so they think what if I won't be able to find a new job or maybe I will get an offer with lower salary.

Agreed. It's a risky move. I also would not generally advise you on this. But, I thought if it's OK for you to take the risk, then you might just free yourself. These companies are not worth it.

Best of luck for your future opportunities.

COMMENT 10d ago

What's the notice period OP ?

I would generally won't advise this. But if it's really that bad as you are describing and you have some experience under your belt, then just quit. Better be a free person and protect your mental health to achieve greatness in future than to be a forever slave.

The virus maybe leaked from lab or maybe of a natural origin. We shouldn't care. Fact is they covered it up initially so that some other country might report it first and they walk out without any damage to their image. That is intentional and after you look at the aftermath, many people have died because of this. I have seen entire family falling prey to this virus. Doesn't matter what their local laws are. Knowing and not stopping it is different from not knowing and accidentally the virus spreading elsewhere. What they did is a crime by itself and CCP has to answer for it.

These developments are not good.

  • Indian army and airforce chiefs frequently visiting forward bases.

  • PAK, China recently had joint exercise.

  • 90% PLA troops rotations doesn't sit good with me. Either they will go offensive or are going for forward deployments again.

  • China has recently upgraded it's airbases and air defense in these areas as well.

  • Now this and as usual the troop buildup continues.
