US technology giant Oracle has been accused of bribing government officials in India, Turkey and UAE to grab business contracts. Charged with violating America's Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the company is paying $23 million as penalties to settle the case. In 2012 too, Oracle was accused of bribing Indian officials, and had to settle the matter in the US. Walmart and Cognizant too have faced similar allegations. While multinationals are held accountable and pay for such violations in the US, does the same happen in India? Meanwhile, US multinationals Amazon and Walmart -- which owns Flipkart -- are up for a stiff competition. Reliance JioMart is upping its game, trying hard to catch up with the two giants. Ahead of festival season, it is offering a one-stop-solution for all shopping needs, from electronics and consumer durables to fashion, lifestyle and grocery. This ambitious digital push raises a crucial question. Can Reliance repeat its brick-and-mortar success in e-commerce?  Stock of Reliance Retail has soared over 200% in the last five years, in tune with its growth during the period. Meanwhile, fears of a global recession have weighed heavily on domestic IT stocks this year. As investors remain bearish on these counters due to concerns that the US and European clients may slash their IT budgets, do the sector valuations make them a contrarian bet?  After the IT stocks, let us shift our focus to the government's plan to make India self-reliant. Mobile manufacturers recently assured the government that they will install NavIC -- a homegrown navigation system developed by ISRO – in new 5G devices starting January 1, 2025. NavIC is India's alternative to GPS. Let us find out more about it in this episode of the podcast.

A 3-km long revamped stretch, connecting Rashtrapati Bhawan to India Gate, was on Thursday evening opened to the public by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The road, popular as ‘Rajpath' so far, will now be called ‘Kartavya Path'. Part of the larger Central Vista project, the stretch is a glimpse of the future, a peek into the larger design.  After the revamped boulevard and soaring spirits, let us shift our focus to fallen heroes of financial markets. They were like shooting stars, who rose, burnt bright and disappeared, leaving behind a trail. And unlike the stars, this trail was that of destruction. People like Harshad Mehta, Ketan Parekh, Ravi Narain and Chitra Ramakrishna had one thing in common - greed. Markets may not forgive them, but lessons can be drawn.  These fallen heroes have, time and again, tested the resilience of financial markets. But markets have a habit of moving on. Meanwhile, Indian markets may see intermittent corrections due to policies of global central banks and some other factors, analysts expect India's relative outperformance to continue. It is now the world's fifth biggest equity market. Get a sneak peek into what analysts are buying and selling as India looks to shine amid the global gloom and doom. After the markets, let us shift our focus to a prolonged legal battle, on which curtains were recently drawn in India. In a big win for the Central government, the Delhi High Court has set aside an arbitral award that directed ISRO's commercial arm Antrix Corporation to pay over $560 million to Bangalore-based start-up Devas Multimedia.

The government recently told the Parliament that it was eyeing a share in the global satellite launch market. Minister of State in PMO Jitendra Singh said that state–run NewSpace India Limited (NSIL) is envisaging launches of several foreign satellites onboard ISRO's SSLV, PSLV and GSLV-MkIII. A market for launching small satellites into low Earth orbits has emerged in recent years. It is driven by the needs of developing countries, universities, and private corporations. The SSLV aims to cater to this market. After the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle and Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, the SSLV is ISRO's third launch vehicle. Weighing in at only 110 tonnes, the SSLV is ISRO's smallest launch vehicle. It also takes only 72 hours to integrate, unlike the 70-day period for other launch vehicles. It can carry satellites weighing up to 500 kg to low earth orbit and provides an alternative to ISRO's current workhorse, the PSLV. The latter can carry satellites weighing in the range of 1,000 kg. The SSLV is also capable of multiple orbital drop-offs, which allows it to launch multiple microsatellites in one launch. Add to that the key features of low cost and turn-around time, launch-on-demand ability, minimal launch infrastructure requirements, and the ability to accommodate multiple satellites. SSLV also supports multiple orbital drop-offs and is perfectly suitable for the launch of microsatellites at a time. Some of the key features of the new SSLV includes low cost, low turn-around time, flexibility in accommodating multiple satellites, launch-on-demand feasibility, minimal launch infrastructure requirements among others. Referring to SSLV, former ISRO chairman K Sivan had in 2019 said that, “Only six people will be required to do the job, instead of 60 people. The entire job will be done in a very short time and the cost will be only around Rs 30 crore. It will be an on-demand vehicle.” Meanwhile, Space Commission member A S Kiran Kumar reportedly said that SSLV D1 will not be a setback. And that the space agency will attempt another flight.

Dans les kiosques britanniques notamment, The Independent affiche les « espoirs de paix à Gaza », montrant en Une des enfants jonchés sur les gravats d'un immeuble. Un cessez-le-feu négocié par l'Égypte est entré en vigueur dimanche 7 août à 23h03 heures locales entre Israël et le mouvement du Jihad islamique, explique également The Guardian. Au troisième jour de ce que le journal Al-Ayyam, basé à Ramallah, qualifie « d'agression israélienne contre la bande de Gaza ». Le journal palestinien parle d'efforts « acharnés et intenses » de l'Égypte, et il observe que les échanges de tirs « se sont poursuivis de manière intensive jusqu'aux derniers instants avant la trêve ».  Après, en tout cas, « des rassemblements massifs ont émergé de plusieurs endroits de la bande de Gaza et se sont dirigés vers les maisons des martyrs », écrit Al-Ayyam. Mais la situation est fragile dans l'ensemble. Al-Quds, autre média palestinien, relaie quant à lui les mots du secrétaire général du Jihad islamique. Dimanche 7 août, Ziad al-Nakhala déclarait : « la résistance a posé ses conditions, au moindre manquement, nous reprendrons les combats ». Une situation pouvant basculer Situation précaire, on le comprend également en face, dans les journaux israéliens. À commencer par le Jerusalem Post, rapportant que « des roquettes ont été tirées en direction du sud d'Israël, quelques minutes seulement après l'entrée en vigueur » du cessez-le-feu. Le journal publie également la mise en garde des autorités israéliennes : « Si le cessez-le-feu est violé, l'État d'Israël se réserve le droit de répondre avec force. »  Ce matin, la situation revenait « peu à peu à la normale » dans la zone près de Gaza, explique également le Times of Israël, mais on comprend que les prochains temps vont être cruciaux, car la libération de membres du Jihad islamique, détenus par Israël, fait partie des points de négociations. Et le site du Times of Israël affiche justement en Une que « les demandes de libération ont été refusées ». L'État hébreu « ne prévoit pas de libérer les prisonniers », peut-on lire. Le risque de dérapage nucléaire en Ukraine C'est en Une du Süddeutsche Zeitung en Allemagne. Après l'attaque sur le site du réacteur de Zaporijia, la plus grande centrale d'Europe, « touchée à deux reprises », l'Agence internationale de l'énergie atomique y voit « le risque bien réel d'une catastrophe nucléaire ». Les gouvernements de Moscou et de Kiev « s'accusent mutuellement », relate le Süddeutsche Zeitung qui explique également en quoi cette situation est « très dangereuse ». Le patron de l'Agence internationale de l'énergie atomique, Rafael Grossi, est censé « se faire une idée de la situation », mais cela « a jusqu'à présent été impossible ». Pourtant, Rafael Grossi « a mis en garde très tôt contre les dangers nucléaires », lit-on. Le journal allemand livre son portrait et le présente comme « un diplomate nucléaire » n'ayant « pas peur de prendre des risques ». La prise de fonctions du nouveau président colombien Observée par la presse également : la prise de fonction dimanche 7 août du nouveau président colombien. La presse espagnole y revient notamment. En Une, El País estime que « la gauche ouvre une voie inédite avec Gustavo Petro en pointe ». « Après deux siècles de vie en tant qu'État indépendant, souligne le journal, la gauche occupe enfin le pouvoir dans un pays aussi présidentiel que la Colombie ». Et elle le fait avec « un ancien guérillero » accompagné de Francia Marquez comme vice-présidente, « une femme Afro née dans la pauvreté dans une zone historiquement marginalisée ». C'est un vaste programme de réformes qu'a promis le nouveau président dans son discours inaugural, observe El País. El Periódico de España met quant à lui en avant la première mesure de Gustavo Petro. Le nouveau président « a ordonné que l'épée de Simón Bolívar soit amenée sur la Plaza de Bolívar à Bogotá ». Cette épée, ayant appartenu au célèbre leader indépendantiste latino-américain, est « une pièce historique qui a une grande valeur symbolique pour le président » explique le quotidien espagnol. Car c'est celle « volée par la guérilla M-19 comme premier acte d'insurrection », guérilla à laquelle Petro lui-même appartenait. Lorsque le groupe est parvenu à un accord de paix avec le gouvernement, l'épée a été rendue. Et le prédécesseur de Gustavo Petro, Ivan Duque avait, lui, refusé de la transférer sur place. Une première mesure symbolique donc. Deux satellites indiens inutilisables Un raté dans l'espace, c'est à lire dans la presse indienne. Ou deux ratés pour le prix d'un, pourrait-on presque dire… « L'Organisation indienne de recherche spatiale (ISRO) a effectué dimanche 7 août le premier vol de son petit véhicule de lancement de satellite », relate The Hindu. Le SSLV-D1, le dernier-né des lanceurs indiens, transportait deux satellites, dont un satellite construit par des étudiants. Or, problème, il n'a pas réussi à les « placer sur l'orbite appropriée ». Il a les a placés sur une orbite de forme elliptique au lieu d'une orbite de forme circulaire. Résultat : les satellites sont tout simplement « inutilisables », explique également le journal The Pioneer. Mais l'organisation indienne de recherche spatiale a affirmé qu'elle reviendra après avoir analysé les données et corrigé la défaillance. The Hindu rappelle pour sa part que « ce n'est pas la première fois que l'ISRO est confrontée à un revers lors de ses premières missions de lancement. Le PSLV, considéré comme l'un des chevaux de bataille de l'agence spatiale, avait échoué lors de son premier vol le 20 septembre 1993. Mais après son premier lancement réussi en octobre 1994, le PSLV s'était imposé comme le véhicule de lancement fiable et polyvalent de l'Inde avec 39 missions consécutives réussies en juin 2017 ». Eh oui, Rome ne s'est pas faite en jour.

In this episode, we take a look at top 10 startups based out of the city of Hyderabad. Pure EV: Founded by two IITians, Nishanth Dongari and Rohit Vadera in 2016, Pure EV began its journey as an IIT Hyderabad incubated startup, and today, they are one of the leading electric two wheeler startups in India. Their most recent product, an electric motorcycle called the Etryst 350, is completely designed, developed and manufactured in India. Skyroot Aerospace: Started by two former ISRO scientists, Naga Bharath Daka and Pawan Kumar Chandana in 2018, the startup's goal is to open Space for all by making Spaceflight affordable, reliable and regular. Their current project, Vikram-1, will be India's first ever privately designed and developed launched vehicle, which they're hoping to launch before 2022 is over. Swipe: The company was founded by two serial entrepreneurs and friends, Aditya Vemuganti and Sri Teja Allaparthi, in 2021, and their goal was to make life easier for small and medium-sized businesses. Their main competitors are OKCredit and Khatabook. Recykal: The company was started by serial entrepreneur Abhay Deshpande, who after selling his second startup, Martjack, in 2015, decided to build his next business out of trash. In the early days, their startup followed a B2C model, where they would work with ragpickers who collected waste from residential homes and deposited this waste at Recykal's recycling centres, but later moved to B2B model as it was more profitable. Ekincare: Founded by Dinesh Koka, Kiran Kalakuntla, Dr. Noel Coutinho, and Srikant Samudrala, Ekincare works with corporates to offer health benefits programs to their employees. They started with B2C model but quickly realised that B2C preventive healthcare was a hard sell because people don't usually try to improve their health until serious symptoms start to show up, so the company ended up pivoting to a more profitable B2B2C model. AdOnMo: The company was founded by Krishna Chaitanya Bommakanti, Sandeep Bommireddi, and Sravanth Gajula back in 2016 with the goal of revolutionising outdoor advertising. AdOnMe built a prototype for this service in 2017, they were testing mounted digital screens on just 5 cabs in Hyderabad, but today the startup has partnered with over 700 brands, they have 18,500 screens across 12 cities in India. StanPlus: Three INSEAD graduates, Antoine Poirson, Jose Leon, and Prabhadeep Singh started this company back in 2016 with the goal of basically building the Uber of ambulances. The way that they've done this is by building a tech platform that aggregates and standarises hospital ambulances, private operators, and government-run services, along with other options like air ambulances at comparatively affordable prices through a business vertical called StanAir. Bhanzu: The company was founded by Neelakantha Bhanu Prakash, who at the age of 15 held the title of World's Fastest Human Calculator.

Swiggy's delivery agents have been striking in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi after the food delivery service provider cut their pay-outs, Economic Times reports. India's food and groceries delivery businesses, including listed company Zomato, are operating at a loss, burning through venture capital funds. Google, yesterday, said it will now hold off until 2024, in the latest update on its plans to replace third-party cookies for advertising, CNBC reports. “The most consistent feedback we've received is the need for more time to evaluate and test the new Privacy Sandbox technologies before deprecating third-party cookies in Chrome,” Anthony Chavez, Google's VP of privacy sandbox, wrote in a blog post. “As developers adopt these APIs, we now intend to begin phasing out third-party cookies in Chrome in the second half of 2024.” Cookies are small pieces of code in websites, tracking people's visits and clicks, and helping advertisers push targeted ads. Google had said last year it would end support for cookies in its Chrome browser by early 2022 once it figured out how to address the needs of users, publishers and advertisers and come up with tools to ease workarounds, according to CNBC. Now Google won't make the change for another two years. Theme music courtesy Free Music & Sounds: https://soundcloud.com/freemusicandsounds

A version of this essay has been published by firstpost.com at https://www.firstpost.com/opinion/from-caatsa-waiver-for-india-to-chastened-visit-to-saudi-arabia-why-biden-is-making-conciliatory-noises-10961801.htmlSamuel Johnson once said: “When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully”. Going by POTUS Biden’s recent hyperactivity, it seems that the prospect of imminent electoral catastrophe has the same effect. For, the hitherto imperious Democrats have been backpedaling so furiously that it is a wonder to watch.Consider just a few events: the importunate, chastened visit to Saudi Arabia (after having trashed it for the Jamal Khashoggi murder); the CAATSA waiver for India (after blood-curdling threats by the sorely missed Daleep Singh et al regarding Ukraine); and the noises being made by several parties about bringing hostilities to an end in Ukraine. Behind all these is the realization that pandemic management has been royally screwed up (the much-vaccinated and Pfizer-oral-vaccine-medicated Biden himself caught the Wuhan virus), and that Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak et al surreptitiously funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan was a major mistake. To be fair, even formerly lionized New Zealand now has significant numbers of covid deaths, but that is hardly comforting to Americans. Printing trillions of dollars as the panacea for covid was an even greater mistake, because the blowback has been raging inflation at 9.1%, hitting the average voter in the pocketbook. I personally endured the previous bout of high US inflation in the late 70s, but as a poor student it didn’t affect me much; as a family man I am sure I would have been pinched badly if I were a US resident and voter now. I remember petrol at $1-2, not $5 as it is now. This does not bode well for the Biden Democrats in the November midterm elections.Inflation is not fun, as the Turkish voter is also finding out. Someone will take the blame.I don’t think blaming Vladimir Putin for inflation is quite working; nor is blaming Donald Trump, who, after all, was the only recent POTUS who didn’t go to war. Biden’s ratings may continue on a downward trajectory. The abortion rights issue roused some of the faithful, but I don’t think this has staying power till November. Thus the U-turns, amusing to the impartial observer. The energy squeeze (and related inflation) explains the Saudi visit. The European Union, in particular Germany, is in bad shape, as is evident from the Euro dropping to a historical low of parity to the dollar. Germany’s GDP shrank for the first time in, well… a long time. If there is no renewed supply of Russian gas, Europe is going to freeze this winter. So it is imperative for NATO to beg or cajole or threaten OPEC, especially the Saudis, into increasing production.There had earlier been the unedifying spectacle of Biden seeking help from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and even Iran, all of whom his staff had demonized earlier. If I am not mistaken, the Saudis and the Venezuelans literally refused to take his phone call, which is humiliating. There is a more subtle reason the Saudis are important to Biden: petrodollars. Who outside the US is going to want all those trillions printed by the US Fed other than to buy petroleum products? The fact is that, having been lured by the siren-song of the Chinese, the US has de-industrialized to such an extent that there's not much global demand for dollars to buy American goods, except for armaments and high technology. If petroleum were to be traded in any other currency than the US dollar, it would depreciate, maybe even collapse. That is a scary prospect, which could trigger a serious global recession. Saudis have to be mollified and/or terrified so they don't even think of accepting other currencies in payment. Both Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein talked about accepting payment in Euros etc, and we all know what happened to them. Besides, there is an interesting little trick: the ‘Tipu Technique’. I believe the British tacitly encouraged Tipu to invade and loot the temples of Kerala, which had grown rich through centuries of lucrative spice trading. The British saw this opportunity, and allowed Tipu to haul the loot to Srirangapatnam. Then they killed him, and took all the riches in one fell swoop instead of piecemeal. And the clever British came out smelling of roses, as the good guys.They also charged the entire cost of their war with Tipu to Travancore, paupering the latter, while maintaining the fiction that they were ‘protecting’ Kerala. Absolutely brilliant tactics. Nice transfer of wealth from India to Britain. This is similar to the American playbook in 1973, when OPEC suddenly tripled oil prices. The US didn’t invade, which is a surprise. Why? The reason is that though the US also had to pay higher prices (consumers and industry felt the pain), the Deep State (and the US economy) made most of it back by selling weapons aplenty to OPEC. It was, and is, a zero-sum dollar-recycling game for them. But it was, and is, also a massive transfer of wealth to OPEC from developing countries who could least afford it. The Third World took it on the chin. Once again, brilliantly done. Thus it is imperative for the US to maintain good relations with Saudi Arabia. Moral grandstanding by the Democrats has reached a point of seriously diminishing returns. Onwards to the CAATSA (Countering American Adversaries Through Sanctions Act). It is intended to deter other countries from doing things the US administration of the day doesn’t like, as in the fashionable ‘social-justice warrior’ tropes of the day, although sanctions are clearly a blunt instrument. India was threatened with these because it is buying Russian SA-400 anti-missile defense systems, instead of US analogs like THAAD and Patriot.As Gautam Sen of the London School of Economics said in a penetrating commentary on Why the West is so uncomfortable with a rising India and happy to sponsor its enemies, India is important to American plans for continued world dominance, unfortunately in a negative way as a permanent vassal, a low-caste neo-feudal flunky that exports raw materials and labor and imports manufactured goods. And weapons, especially weapons. There has been a full-court press on India to buy increasing amounts of US armaments, and the Ukraine war provided a good excuse to bully India (which is easily shamed by the West chiding it) into dumping perfectly good Russian weapons like the SA-400 (and presumably the Indo-Russian joint venture, BrahMos). India becoming a minor exporter of weapons (not just a big consumer) is not part of the plan. India has been the third-biggest weapons buyer in the world, accounting for 11% of global purchases in the recent past. Reversing itself on bullying India to buy nothing but American weapons is another tactical U-turn by the US.Evidently Atlanticist-minded Biden is not serious about the Indo-Pacific, as seen in his evisceration of the Quad. But it must have dawned on his foreign policy types that India and Japan are the cornerstones of any possible response to China’s rampant imperialism in the region. Besides, India has endured American sanctions and technology denials before (supercomputers, cryogenic engines) without collapsing; and probably will do so again. On balance, better not to piss India off totally. But Biden has no love lost for India: it was his Biden Amendment that messed up India’s cryogenic engine deal with Russia, which is the central theme of the movie Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. I wrote long ago about this in Who killed the ISRO’s cryogenic engine?, as it happened in my hometown. It ruined eminent aerospace engineer Nambi Narayanan’s career and delayed India’s heavy rocket GSLV by 19 years. As far as the Ukraine war is concerned, even the war-mongering Deep State mouthpiece The Economist, which was gung-ho in the beginning, is now making conciliatory noises. Foreign Affairs, a notably optimistic outlet, had a story titled Ukraine’s Implausible Theories of Victory: The Fantasy of Russian Defeat and the Case for Diplomacy.The fact is that Russia has (certainly in the short run) weathered the vaunted sanctions rather well, and the rouble is the best-performing currency against the dollar. The unintended consequence of the war has been widespread pain, especially in the ‘First World’, that is, Western Europe and North America. It would be better, as India has been saying all along, for there to be a negotiated settlement. A stalemate is still a win for Russia, as it has captured the disputed Russian-speaking parts of eastern Ukraine, created a land bridge to Crimea, and now controls the ports on the Sea of Azov. That is the most likely outcome, as Europeans tire of the war, and Biden’s plans to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian seem to have unraveled. It is time for the Great Reset. And that may not help the wokes; they are being consigned to the trash-heap of history at a record pace. It is the end of the Woke Century, after just a year and a half. And deservedly so. 1500 words, 25 July 2022 This is a public episode. If you would like to discuss this with other subscribers or get access to bonus episodes, visit rajeevsrinivasan.substack.com

Matsyanyaaya: The New CHIPS Bill Raises More Questions than it Answers— Arjun GargeyasIn the last week, the US Senate decided to advance a bill to promote and support semiconductor chip manufacturing in the country. The bill, known as the CHIPS Act, is an extension to the previous year’s legislation passed by the Senate which approved a $250 billion bill to reinforce US chipmaking to compete with the growing clout of China. With the global chip shortage receding and the production getting back to pre-pandemic levels, the US government pushed the bill through with the intention of improving the manufacturing capabilities of the country in the semiconductor industry. With China running its foundries at full-scale even during the height of the pandemic, the state has managed to slowly increase its market share in the global semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem. A recent Bloomberg report showcases how the last four quarters have been dominated by Chinese semiconductor firms and their operations. This has raised alarms among the Western states regarding the reduction in influence and market share in the semiconductor domain. But how much can the CHIPS act achieve the goals and objectives that the US government intends to? Will there be any unintended consequences and unfavourable effects that might arise from the act itself?Subsidies to increase manufacturing output? The CHIPS bill seeks to facilitate the semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem in the country through increased subsidies and financial incentives for the domestic players. Considering the multifaceted benefits of improved chip manufacturing capacity, the US government looks to provide subsidies worth $52 billion to domestic semiconductor companies through the CHIPS bill.One of the main reasons behind the advancement of the CHIPS bill is to reduce manufacturing dependencies on Asian semiconductor manufacturers and increase domestic manufacturing output. Another objective of the bill is to ensure self-sufficiency in the supply of semiconductor chips in case of another global chip shortage. But can subsidies translate into an increase in manufacturing? Historically, it's noticed that in technology sectors, pumping in money and favourable industrial policies cannot always translate into necessary outcomes. This is especially true for the semiconductor industry. A case in point is China itself. The Chinese government has provided a plethora of incentives, subsidies and even financed companies with the hope of improving their semiconductor manufacturing output. However, even its major firm, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Company (SMIC) took over two decades to make a mark in the industry. Currently, it still lags behind industry giants such as Intel and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Though the CHIPS bill has the potential to positively impact semiconductor manufacturing in the country, the government should not imagine that this would completely insulate the US from supply chain dependencies. This might cover the domestic demand to an extent but international dependency will still remain. TSMC itself is building a new fab in Arizona looking to branch out from Taiwan. Manufacturing equipment still remains an issue with the need to import certain equipment from abroad. Also, there is the caveat of the bill stating how semiconductor firms would not be allowed to have any Chinese investments in their company if they benefit from the subsidies provided by the bill. Restrictions over the import and export of semiconductor products to China is also included when availing the benefits of the new legislation. The CHIPS bill will help spur semiconductor manufacturing in the country and cater to its domestic demand to an extent. But, expecting the bill to help the US attain self-sufficiency in the supply chain remains a futile expectation. Fab vs Fabless Another aspect of this legislation is the division of benefits and subsidies. The current CHIPS bill benefits the firms that have the capability to design and manufacture their own semiconductor products. This includes Intel which has the fabrication potential. The bill provides subsidies to build fabrication facilities and provides investment tax credit to purchase tools for use inside their factories.However, the entire industry is not happy with this. Fabless firms such as NVIDIA, AMD and Qualcomm have expressed disappointment at the legislation. Fabless firms are those semiconductor companies that design their products but outsource their manufacturing to Asian counterparts. The new bill does not have any direct benefits for fabless firms as they do not build foundries or buy equipment. Such firms have argued this would help just Intel and is more of a rent-seeking opportunity for Intel to dominate the market. Unfair competition between the fab and fabless firms can result in the government choosing winners (in this case, Intel) is what the other companies are saying. These fabless firms actually support an earlier version of the FABS Act (introduced earlier in the House of Representatives) which provides tax credit on both manufacturing and chip design activities giving benefits to both the type of semiconductor firms. This version of the bill was also supported by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA). Though not officially opposing the bill, fabless semiconductor firms have questioned the impact of huge sums of money supporting their competitors.Finally, the fact that the US has the most number of semiconductor fabrication facilities in the world can also hamper the distribution of the subsidies. Will the financial incentives be proportional to the market share of the company or will it support smaller manufacturers also? These are questions that the bill might have to address before finally getting President Joe Biden’s final signature.Antariksh Matters: Space Dreams and Ground Realities— Aditya RamanathanThe Indian government may look to space tourism to sustain its human spaceflight programme. In a response to a Rajya Sabha question, the minister of state for science and technology said India was developing a homegrown capability to support space tourism. According to the minister, this capability would be developed via the Gaganyaan human spaceflight programme.Singh’s comments come even as the government has acknowledged delays in the Gaganyaan programme, which was originally planned to be launched in 2022, to mark 75 years of India’s independence. That deadline has now been pushed to 2024. Besides the formidable technical challenges involved in any human spaceflight programme, Gaganyaan was also set back by the pandemic, which forced ISRO to scale back operations. Russia’s war with Ukraine will likely add to the difficulties, since Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, which trained an initial batch of four Indian Air Force cosmonauts, has been heavily sanctioned by Western states. “Abort Missions”Long before any space tourists (or for that matter, cosmonauts) take off on an Indian launch vehicle, there will come a series of tests. The first of these will be a so-called “abort mission,” slated for September and December of 2022. Having already tested the human-rated HS2000 rocket booster in May, ISRO will now conduct uncrewed tests of the survival systems. According to reporting in The Indian Express:‘For the abort missions, the space agency has developed test vehicles that can send the systems up to a certain height, simulate failure, and then check the escape system. Gaganyaan’s escape system was designed with five “quick-acting” solid fuel motors with a high burn rate propulsion system, and fins to maintain stability. The crew escape system will separate from the crew module by firing explosive nuts.’The next steps would be to integrate a crew module and an onboard “Onboard Launch Vehicle Health Management System” along with other elements. As ISRO chief S. Somanath recently concluded in an interview, the human-ready launch system “is yet to see the final shape”.Creating an LEO EconomyIndia’s ambitious next step for human spaceflight is to launch its own space station. Such a space station is to orbit at altitudes of 300-400 km above sea level and have more than one module. However, Singh’s statement about space tourism is a reminder than human spaceflight missions are expensive and that states - and private companies - need to find ways to recoup their costs. The Gaganyaan project alone has a price tag of INR9,000 crores (about $1.13 billion). Sending Indians into space on a regular basis will cost many times more. Other spacefaring nations, in particular, the United States and China, have recognised these realities and are seeking to create self-sustaining low Earth Orbit (LEO) economies. While the International Space Station (ISS) is slated to be deorbited in January 2031, the US is promoting the creation of an ecosystem of privately built and operated space stations to replace it. The US space agency NASA has already selected and commenced funding of three proposed space stations: those by Nanoracks, Blue Origin, and Northrop Grumman. While it is possible that some of these stations will fail to work or fail to make money, the very process of designing, building, and operating them will help develop both the technologies and the institutional experience required for a vibrant LEO economy. India remains far behind the world’s leading spacefarers in these efforts. To send Indians into space on a regular basis will ultimately require more than space tourism - it will require a thriving private space industry and international collaboration.Our Reading Menu[Article] Artificial Intelligence Regulation by Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar and Aziz Z.

Ep. 70: Infrastructure in the deep Peninsula for national security and self-reliance

A version of this essay was published by chanakya forum at https://chanakyaforum.com/infrastructure-in-the-deep-peninsula-for-national-security-and-self-reliance/A Swarajya report https://swarajyamag.com/infrastructure/vo-chidambaranar-port-to-expand-with-rs-7200-crore-project-to-compete-with-colombo-and-singapore-as-transhipment-hub  about V O Chidambaram port in Thoothukkudi (Tuticorin), TN, and its plans to expand into a container trans-shipment port was interesting. It reminded me of a plan I have mooted for some time (without success so far) about building up logistics infra, industrial capacity and defense capability in the deep south. Briefly, India’s much-desired success as a manufacturing and export power will be compromised unless there is good transportation infrastructure for both bulk cargo and for high-value, low-weight industrial goods. Today, India’s container cargo is highly dependent on Colombo, Singapore and Dubai for trans-shipment (that is, transferring cargo from the giant motherships to smaller ships). If I am not mistaken, 25% of India’s containers transit through Colombo alone.Colombo, in fact, depends on India for over 70% of its business. Their existing East Terminal is Chinese-controlled; the proposed  West Terminal is apparently taken up by India’s Adani group on a BOT basis. Nevertheless, it is possible to imagine that at a point of geo-political stress, as with Sri Lanka’s troubles today, or if the Chinese decide to embargo Indian containers (as they did without notice for exports of rare-earths to Japan), Indian trade could be badly affected. Thanks for reading Shadow Warrior! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.The under-construction Vizhinjam port in Trivandrum, also controlled by Adani Ports, has a proposed capacity of 1.8 million TEUs in the first phase, and 5.3 million TEUs in the second phase. The proposed VOC container terminal at Thootthukkudi will have a capacity of 4 million TEUs. (A TEU or twenty-foot equivalent can be taken to be a single container for practical purposes).The right solution would be for these two ports to work in coordinated fashion, one on each side of the Peninsula, and not get into destructive competition. Image courtesy Swarajya Magazine.Road connectivity Image: Courtesy Google MapsRail connectivity (upto Tirunelveli), image courtesy Google MapsMy idea has been a railway line and an industrial corridor linking the two, which are roughly 200km apart by road. Both ports have their advantages, and together they can serve a significant hinterland, and the proposed developments between them can provide a measure of maritime security in an area that has been neglected so far, but will become increasingly critical.There are three aspects to it: connectivity, a focused industrial corridor, and security. Thank you for reading Shadow Warrior. This post is public so feel free to share it.Connectivity, shipping routes and trunk national rail and road linksVizhinjam has a multi-modal advantage: the port is only 15 km from a major international airport, Trivandrum, and both the port and the airport are controlled by Adani Ports, so that they could coordinate multi-modal shipment of goods, including at some point, inland waterway transport via National Waterway Three. Thoothukkudi airport is much smaller. But both are linked to the national trunk routes of the Golden Quadrilateral highways and railway lines passing through Tamil Nadu. So container traffic can be moved between the two with relatively little effort; also upcountry containers from/to Bangalore or Hyderabad or further inland can be moved with relative ease down to either of them without much trouble (the connectivity links for both to the trunk routes are either in place or are being built up).In terms of the shipping lanes in the Arabian Sea, Vizhinjam has the advantage, as it is only 10 nautical miles away from the main sea lanes. VOC is a bit of a diversion, and unless there is some incentive, very large container ships (12000+ TEU for instance) would hesitate to steam the additional nautical miles. Vizhinjam also has the advantage of draft (undredged 16m). However, the TN government is good at getting things done, so that’s Thoothukkudi’s advantage. Industrial corridorThere is a surprising industry that could well be the focus of this corridor: aerospace. There are Thumba and Valiyamala in Trivandrum where ISRO has major facilities, including the rocket-R&D facility named Liquid Propulsion Systems Center. There is Mahendragiri in TN’s Tirunelveli district where the rockets are tested at the ISRO Propulsion Complex. Finally the new launch pad is to come up in Kulasekharapattanam in Thoothukkudi dstrict, TN (as a supplement to Sriharikota). All these are within a stone’s throw of each other.The three could form the end nodes for a dedicated aerospace industry cluster. There is little room for manufacturing in congested Kerala (although the R&D can happen there), but it is possible to acquire large tracts of semi-arid land (this being a rain-shadow region, desalination plants may need to be set up) in Tamil Nadu. India must improve its aerospace industry, both defense and civilian.There was also talk of Airbus seeking a production facility abroad, but perhaps that opportunity has been lost.  LPSC, Mahendragiri and Kulasekharapatnam of ISRO: Image courtesy Google MapsIndia has fallen behind in aerospace; even a developing country like Brazil has its Embraer, and there is no good reason India cannot have a thriving aircraft industry, perhaps in a niche, especially as civilian air traffic is expected to soar in coming years. In addition, Tejas and Dhruv have gained a measure of scale with induction into the armed forces, and Brahmos is even being exported (its production base is in Trivandrum now). This means an ecosystem of component suppliers has sprung up. There is no question that India needs to continue to develop its own defense systems, both aircraft and missile, as the possibility of damaging sanctions and technology denial has gone up. Atmanirbhar is key.Maritime defenseMost Indian defense installations have been designed with Pakistan in mind. Thus northwest India and the west coast have been the focus. However, the very real threat of Chinese intrusions into the Indian Ocean needs to be given much more focus now. The Chinese are showing every intent of dominating the Indian Ocean with both surface ships and submarines.China’s crown jewels (apart from its new aircraft carriers) are the contents of its submarine pen on Hainan island, near Vietnam’s Haiphong. There are increasing activities by submarines in India’s vicinity. India has little protection or early warning on its east coast. This is one of the reasons that there are new naval installations and long-range radars in the Andamans, which lie close to the mouth of the Straits of Malacca. It would be a good idea to set up an airbase with long-range radar in southern Tamil Nadu too, to keep an eye on what’s happening in the Bay of Bengal/Indian Ocean area. Besides, surveillance with Poseidon P8i type submarine hunter-killer aircraft could be useful. I remember when I worked in Mountain View, California, I could see from my office Orion P3i craft taking off and landing incessantly at Moffett Field. India does have important assets on its south-eastern seaboard. One example would be the Koodankulam nuclear plant. I suppose Kulasekharapatnam would also be a potential target for hostile forces. Sterlite would have been if only it hadn’t already been sabotaged. The deep south has not gotten its fair mind-share. It is time to change that, and in ways that will benefit the rest of the country through efficient trade networks, manufacturing clusters, and defense. 1200 words, 30 May 2022 This is a public episode.

In this episode, Narayan Prasad Nagendra joins Konark Bhandari to discuss the key developments in India's space sector. India's space program has been widely recognized for its ability to produce cost effective space technology. This has slowly driven down the costs of missions, including orbital missions, lunar missions, and even Martian missions. However, these endeavors have largely been driven by ISRO, India's national space agency. Realizing the need for an increased integration of the private sector into the Indian Space story, over the last few years, the Indian government has introduced a wide range of reforms in the Indian Space sector. In this episode of Interpreting India, we will take a closer look at India's space sector and its key developments. What are these space reforms everyone speaks of? How close are we to seeing the next SpaceX of Indian origin? What is on the wish list for private space companies in India?--Episode ContributorsNarayan Prasad Nagendra is a co-founder at satsearch.co, a global marketplace for space with a mission to consolidate the global space industry supply chain. He also serves as a partner to the  SpacePark Kerala, a Government of Kerala initiative to develop a space-economic hub in India. He founded his first company Dhruva Space in 2012, a NewSpace company based out of Bengaluru, India with a vision to lead the privatization of the spacecraft industry in India.Konark Bhandari is an associate fellow with Carnegie India.

The ISRO human space program began as the Indian Human spaceflight  programme in 2007. This began the development of technology needed to  launch crewed orbital spacecraft into low earth orbit. In 2018, the  government approved a further $1.5bn for a 7 day crewed flight. Now  known as the Gaganyaan programme, the programme aims to send two  unmanned missions and one manned flight mission into low earth orbit by  2023.   PM Modi launched the Indian Space Association (ISpA) in late 2021 as a  way to contribute towards the accelerated development of India's space  industry. Speaking on the occasion, the PM said that this undertaking  will give the India space sector "new wings". It removes the  restrictions on space access, previously only given to ISRO and a select  few institutions. ISpA aspires to be the collective voice of the Indian  Space industry.   In the light of these advancements and India's new found enthusiasm for  the space race, we decided to dive deep into Indian space exploration.  To shed some light on this exhaustive subject, we invited guests Aloke  Kumar and Koushik Vishwanathan.   Aloke Kumar is the Associate Professor at the Indian Institute of  Science Bangalore. He has also worked in many teams exploring  applications of science to make space exploration easier. Koushik Vishwanathan is also an assistant professor at IISc, with an  interest in advanced manufacturing and finishing processes.
