Unfortunately we are dependent on US too; to a large extend for engines,equipments, spares, high end electronics and other cutting edge technologies; not just for our businesses but even for DRDO, ISRO and HAL also. Barring ISRO, these organisations are the symbols of indian lethargy and red tapism. An example of that whatever we have in our hands in the name of self sufficiency, innovation, growth, progress whatsoever you call it; is this!! And what they produce is mostly junk and even we, ourself would not like to use it for our own systems.We know we will be making fool of our self if we use the equipments developed by these organisations.
India's fighting capability is becoming dependent on US where we have an entire technology imported from US; not just the spares, even the whole set of system are installed on indian soil. In case when we are without the supplies from US how we are going to fill the gap?
The required IT Skilled (which is loosing sheen) is easily importable for US from Philippines and other south eastern countries; in fact, they are waiting to have a pie from Indian share in IT industry.
In the race of comparison with China, we have unfortunately lost the tag of even a worthy competitor. China looks into the eyes because unlike India, China has become self sustained on almost all sector of industry. Rampant corruption in our veins and with a devalued currency ,to make it worse; our sole dependence on US, mishandling the situation just for a suspicious lady...I think we have burnt our hands!
