It’s high time to have own DSRVs
07/02/2008

William Arthur had once rightly said - “Wise are those who learn that the bottom-line doesn’t always have to be their top priority.” But ostensibly India fails to realise that. The bottom-line might be to win wars…but should India’s priority not be to protect the lives of those warriors who put their lives at stake for the motherland?

Doesn’t it beat the wits out of everyone that India does not yet have a Deep Sea Rescue Vehicle (DSRV)? The deals which were to materialise with Canada for the same, have fallen in the traps of corruption. It seems and the other deal with the US has also achieved no better status. And what’s more surprising is that these deals or for that matter no other deal of DSRV is getting the boost when it seems to be a foremost priority for India. And what happens in turn? A thing of not so past is that during the fleet level war games, the INS Sindhughosh collided with a merchant ship and the consequence was miraculously not so severe. There could be crisis situations where a DSRV might be of utmost requisite…well, when India can invest billions in outsourcing arm equipments, why then she is silent to answer to it? Doesn’t India feel that it is as much important to resue its ships and sailors for furthering our sea-worthiness as submarines itself?
