Rohatgi’s remark in the Supreme Court on Tuesday that India will have to wage war with Sri Lanka if it wants to retrieve the Katchatheevu island is a blunt admission of the impossibility of the demand frequently raised by Tamil Nadu politicians Katchatheevu an uninhabited stretch of sand with no source of drinking water off Rameswaram was ceded to Sri Lanka in 1974 while the two nations settled the international boundary No mainstream Tamil political group had questioned the decision then Fishermen from India were allowed landing rights including permission to dry their gear since the island was part of the commons and accessed by all fishermen irrespective of nationality People were also allowed to visit the island during the annual festivities in the church the only building on the island For decades Katchatheevu has been in the possession of Sri Lanka So what has provoked Tamil politicians to dispute the ownership of the island now Katchatheevu has in recent times become entwined with the fate of Tamil fishermen in Sri Lankan jails A number of them have been arrested by the Sri Lankan navy for trespassing into Lankan waters It has become a political issue in Tamil Nadu with parties competing to rake it up Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and others have demanded Central intervention The real issue here is that fishermen who operate out of the Rameswaram harbour now try to fish in Lankan waters since overfishing has exhausted the catch on the Indian side Ownership of Katchatheevu and the sea around would mean an expansion of the waters under Indian control The way forward is to address the core issue which is the plight of fishermen whose livelihood is under threat A new harbour could be built to the north of Rameswaram to enable fishermen to explore the Bay of Bengal Fishermen who now scrounge the Palk Straits could be provided gear and training for deep sea fishing in the Indian Ocean Better fisheries management is necessary to avoid overcrowding and overfishing Instead of resorting to nationalist rhetoric politicians must focus their energies on addressing the livelihood concerns of fishermen And they must work the diplomatic channels to ensure that Indian

YITZHAK BEN-YISRAEL Chairman Israel Space Agency Related News Military scientist and former politician YITZHAK BEN-YISRAEL is currently the chairman of the Israel Space Agency and head of the security studies programme at Tel Aviv University He was Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s chief cybernetics advisor from 2010-12 when he established the National Cyber Bureau The author of Dialogues on Science and Military Intelligence (1989) and The Philosophy of Military Intelligence (1999) among others Ben-Yisrael was in Delhi recently when he spoke to Sudeep Paul: You’ve been associated with the India-Israel bilateral relationship for a long time How satisfied are you with the big picture right now We began cooperating in defence first more than 20 years ago After the fall of the Soviet Union India found itself in a situation where its defence was based mainly on Soviet equipment The West still didn’t trust India fully Israel found itself in a unique situation We had common interests and common values And also Israel had good technology that was not at that time available to India So we started in that area I was lucky to be one of the pioneers on the Israeli side and I found in India a very remarkable person who was then DRDO director — Dr APJ Abdul Kalam We discovered a common language and interests and we launched this cooperation We hoped it would involve commercial civil and cultural cooperation as well and not just defence But at that time because of political reasons this didn’t succeed so much There was progress but the rate of progress was relatively slow relative to defence Today I think we are back on the right track and we have the ability to expand our collaboration to other fields as well Your position on Iran’s nuclear programme has evolved from thinking long ago that a strike was perhaps necessary to believing a strike would only accelerate it Since an Iranian nuclear deal looks a near-term possibility how would it impact the Middle East It depends very much on the details which will determine whether it’s a good deal or a bad one A deal by itself is not the goal The strategic situation is this: in order to make a bomb the most crucial element is the fissile material For that you can either produce plutonium or enrich uranium For the time being the Iranians don’t know how to produce plutonium So they put their emphasis on enriching uranium They know how to do this and nothing will change it — neither a deal nor bombing They know how to enrich uranium and make it weapons grade But they are not doing it Because of many reasons — sanctions politics the Iranian economy and the price of oil So they want to reach a deal What is the ideal deal Let’s say they agree to destroy everything all capabilities all facilities But then one day they start again How long will it then take them to reach feasibility They know how to build the facilities and knowing how things are these cannot come from outside So they’ll have to build new facilities like 4-5000 centrifuges With all this they can produce one bomb in a year So… three years Currently before the interim deal they were some three months from the end In the interim deal they agreed to get rid of the 20 per cent enriched uranium So the interim deal took them six to nine months from the endline Ideally you can go back up to three years So the ideal deal will be in between three years and nine months Time is important If the deal is to take them back two years that means if they change their mind in future the world will have two years to react — to warn form a coalition and perhaps undertake military action If it’s only nine months the time may not be enough to arrange all this So it’s all very dependent on two factors: one the time period of the deal; two the monitoring mechanisms to prevent Iran from doing something secretly I think a deal is today a better strategy than military action because they have already crossed the point of acquiring knowledge But it depends very much on the deal From Iran and Syria to ISIS the Middle East illustrates how governments have to work under ‘conditions of uncertainty’ to use your phrase The world from Ukraine to East Asia is geopolitically precarious India for instance worries about post-Nato Afghanistan Under such circumstances does a government just wait and watch while minimising risk and damage It’s very difficult to give advise to a big country like India Nevertheless in Israel we’ve had experience in dealing with more severe situations The Middle East of course for the last 100 years or so has been the core of uncertainty in the world No one really knows what will happen in the future We can only assume So a state would need the kind of security measures that will be flexible enough to deal with different scenarios You can guess two or three possible scenarios here and there and prepare yourself And a lot of countries feel they have prepared in vain — you invest money etc and then nothing happens The philosophy of Israel is that in such cases it justifies the investment One reason why Iran didn’t weaponise was because they could see the other side was prepared This is called a deterrent And that’s how we do business in Israel We look at the future and we try to guess not what would happen but a few reasonable scenarios Then we prepare ourselves to meet the same There is really no other way a government could act in such uncertain conditions If you have an a priori assumption you might be surprised by a different development The Yom Kippur War changed the way Israel prepared and alerted itself including intelligence gathering In the Yom Kippur War we had a different problem We knew that Israel was born in a war and that war never stopped there But in 1973 the failure was more an intelligence failure The problem with Israel is that it is so small compared to its neighbours — if you take only those Arab countries that have borders with Israel you get something like 20 times more people than in Israel If you take the whole Arab world it’s 60 times as much We cannot have a military force that is suitable for defending Israel against such a huge hostile environment So what we did instead was have a certain reasonable force and in case of an emergency called in the reserves Everyone in Israel has to go through compulsory service for three years and then until the age of 40-50 he still serves The majority of the forces is reserves Now in order to call the reserves you need some time In 1973 it was 36 hours In this case you’d need a very good intelligence system that would alert you at least 36 hours before the other side attacks you We failed to do that in 1973 If you don’t do it for the first two or three days it gets very difficult because we didn’t have enough force along the borders to meet all these invading divisions from Egypt and Syria So this was a different type of surprise It’s not that we didn’t know they were going to attack We knew it but we didn’t know they’d do it just at that moment The geography of Israel doesn’t allow a big enough force 24 hours a day We had to call in reserves and for this we needed an intelligence alert and we failed to do that But since then we also changed some of our priorities giving more power to our intelligence services more manpower more money so as not to surprised again Your theoretical proposition and explication are that intelligence gathering is like science That is so People usually tend to lean on experience You ask someone what will happen and he’ll tell you “You know I’ve been working in this for 20-30 years And if you ask me judging from my experience this will never happen” This is human psychology and a human tendency when we make intelligence estimates And it is wrong Every time someone on the other side does something not done before you’ll be surprised because there’s no previous “experience” I have written two books and some articles on this — that this is not the right approach to making intelligence estimates You have to do it like scientists First inventing creating possible scenarios — in science what we call hypotheses And then eliminating the wrong ones by testing them in real life In science you test them in the laboratory; in intelligence you test confront them with a piece of knowledge that’s been gathered In gathering intelligence on domestic terror threats monitoring individuals and groups can be difficult — for both human and cyber intel — largely because of the dangerous and thin lines Cyber technology started as an extension of regular intelligence activities Intelligence is interested in knowing what are your secrets Therefore if I am in the intelligence service I have to go through your files and look for the information For the last 20-30 years information is stored in computers In order to know what’s stored in your computer I have to use cyber technology So cyber tech is usually associated with intelligence work as with the NSA etc But now there is a huge difference and this is a problem not yet solved satisfactorily The problem is unlike conventional military intelligence that involves two defence forces here we are talking about the internet and cyberspace used by civilians not just by the military Even if I want to penetrate a military computer it is not like a missile that I launch and it hits the target A cyber missile has to go through computers and servers which are usually civilian Therefore in order to protect yourself against cyber attacks you need some monitoring of the civilian cyberspace And this is a huge problem because by doing it you might violate people’s privacy What is the right balance between the two On one hand we need to secure ourselves On the other privacy is important in any democracy like India or Israel So you need the right balance and there is still no satisfactory solution to this problem Two months ago the Israeli government after a year’s work that I had the honour to lead accepted a kind of solution now being built and I hope it will work It is to take this task of internal cyber monitoring from the intelligence services and set up a new civilian authority that we call the National Cyber Security Authority — a new civilian one with nothing to do with intelligence or military business with one task in hand only and that is preserving the health of the cyberspace They will monitor what’s going on in cyberspace to prevent malware from travelling There’s no other task I hope this will be the right balance between the two needs because you cannot really have one and — going for full security and monitor everything or no monitoring at all This is part of the National Cyber Initiative that I launched four years ago Then the government decided — and Israel became the first country to do so — to build within the prime minister’s office a new service we call now the National Cyber Bureau It is a bureau of many players in cyberspace cybersecurity cyber intelligence and internal security and the NCB is the conductor of the orchestra The new authority NCSA is different It will get its policy from the NCB but it will act on its own as an independent body You’ve written about technology and the future of violence A whole spectrum of extremists use the social media space How do authorities deal with the interface between technology (cyber particularly) and violence or rather the incitement to it in a typical case like the Bangalore professional who ran an ISIS Twitter account There are some Israeli citizens who operate in the grey area between the legal and illegal They sometimes hint at or encourage illegal actions using one of the basic rights of every democracy — freedom of expression They will always say this is a part of our rights to express their opinions It poses a very difficult problem for the government Here again you have the tension between democratic rights and security You cannot ignore one for the other I don’t know how to solve this problem universally Every state has to cope with it and find the right way to do it When gangsters took over Chicago in the 1930s when they got Al Capone in the end they got him for tax evasion — not for the real reason But they put him behind bars nevertheless So you have to find the right ways to do it without sacrificing basic values and that’s why it’s very difficult But the other side is that they abuse democracy and do so for wrong things exploiting the values we have in place They use our systems based on certain assumptions in order to destroy those systems and this should not be permitted We should find a way to secure ourselves without sacrificing freedom of expression I don’t know how to do it but I understand the problem And they are very good at using the weaknesses of democracies for their purpose We hear about building an ‘ecosystem’ for bilateral collaboration in cyber security India’s corporate sector looks particularly vulnerable it reportedly lost about $4 billion to cyber attacks last year This could be a very good space for India and Israel to collaborate That’s true And I am not talking about traditional defence but larger things The way we see the NCB’s task in Israel it has two goals: one to coordinate with players on cyber security For this you have to look at the threats to find ways to stop these threats from being carried out The other goal is different altogether It is to use the very fact that Israel is already more than 20 years in this business and that we have already put an emphasis on hi-tech generally and cyber-tech specifically — to use it as an opportunity to make Israel one of the world’s centres for cyber security technology And this is the reason I am here for a conference arranged by the CII to see what can be done in areas of academic cooperation inter-industry cooperation (not defence) The purpose was to see what can be done in these areas and to enhance collaboration in especially two areas — cyber security and food security The latter is also very important and there are relations between the two It turned out there’s a lot to be done between universities etc and a large group from Indian industry will come to Israel next year for our annual international cyber conference in which all members of the Israeli ecosystem — start-ups industry government academy etc meet We had 5000 people last year and next year I hope to see 100 Indians You’ve advocated constant advancement and evolution of technology for military preparation and security India saw both procurement and production almost come to a halt for almost a decade Currently there seem to be efforts to getting our defence back on track How important would be the need for constant R&D in defence while looking at evolving threats It is important because every country has its own unique requirements Certain platforms are very flexible You can buy them and adapt them But many times for example if you have a situation in the Himalayas nobody is developing weapons to deal with such high altitude and such low pressure In this case the only one who can do so is yourself Add to this the fact that India is not a small country It should therefore behave like any big country This means among other things being if not fully then highly independent in weapons and tech service So India should be able to develop and build by itself its main weapon systems The question is how do you accomplish this You cannot say that because of this reason you will only go for indigenous development That takes time But it’s only a question of time since the goal should be independence Yet if you go about only purchasing too aggressively you will not gain insight you won’t learn how to build and improve In the end you’ll be dependent on external developers and producers If you proceed aggressively with indigenous production you will find yourself without what you need for 20 years or so — military development on any weapon or system takes 10 to 20 years — and you will also lose out on technology So you need a rational combination And I mentioned to you that on the Israeli side I was one of the pioneers in building this relationship with Dr Kalam on your side He was clever enough to understand that in order to improve DRDO capability to meet the Indian forces’ needs in a hostile environment you would need some cooperation to gradually build the indigenous capability This is the right way to go about it India launches Israel’s satellites and Israel is reputed for a very pragmatic quality over quantity approach to space What are we looking ahead to in space collaboration in the wake of the Mars mission etc This is one area in which India has taken a huge leap in the last 20 years or so A huge leap And I met the ISRO chief a few months ago in Toronto I congratulated him on the Mars mission which is fantastic I have known Indian space for at least 20 years and it’s progressing very fast India today can do things that no more than three or four countries can do I think they’re on the right track and I admire them Still I think there is some place for collaboration especially in certain niches I am not speaking about the big picture but in certain niches we have capabilities mainly in lighter satellites etc We can cooperate here and it isn’t just India that has something to offer to this collaboration We can also offer something Apart from using space for ‘strategic depth’ and intel gathering we are also debating ‘space sustainability’ today with so many states looking at space aggressively Well people usually criticise anything that involves big money That’s a human tendency Space is no exception Still if you ask me this is one of the most fascinating areas Why do we invest in space First of all to promote science Science is something that’s not so concrete At the end of the day because of science there will be better technology and the people in the street too will benefit But you don’t feel or realise that benefit right now Now it feels that instead of investing here to improve our roads houses and markets etc you are investing in space which is very far away Second and this is a very crucial reason for a state like Israel and I guess it’s the same also here in India it’s very difficult to convince kids to study science and mathematics We have to find the right ways to attract them to these subjects Space is a wonderful tool for this It attracts kids much more than other things We did some research and found three things that attract kids to mathematics and the physical sciences: space because it does something to their imagination; robots are another; and don’t ask me why but dinosaurs I always tell my colleagues at the Israel Space Agency that we will build a robot that looks like a dinosaur and send it to the moon Then we will get the whole globe’s attention For all the latest Opinion News

two versions are different from one another owing to the standards of television it is a first for any series to be available on both small screen and digital platform at the same time In an interview with indianexpresscom Anand who has directed web series in the past most notably YRF’s Bang Baaja Baaraat talks about Girl In The City bringing fresh relatable content on television and why he feels soon the demarcation between web and TV series will go away Here are the excerpts from the interview: What triggered the idea for Girl In The City “The germ of the idea came to us from Saurabh Siddharth and team Bindaas They called Amrit (Amritpal Singh co-producer) and me after watching Bang Baaja Baaraat and wanted us to develop and produce it We loved the concept especially because we wanted to do a series which explored the life of today’s urban female youth And here was a great opportunity to collaborate on something around those lines We got on board Sanyukta Chawla to write it and Samar Shaikh to direct it Sanyukta was inspired to bring in a lot of her own experiences of coming to Mumbai from a small town We really enjoyed seeing the city of Mumbai through Meera’s (the protagonist) eyes and so did the audience” A still from Girl In The City starring Mithila Palkar It was popular on the web What made you take it to television “That was always the plan Bindaas has been very organised with their broadcast and web release plans We made two edits of every episode one which suited the TV standard and practices and the other for the web It maximised our reach to a much larger audience than any other web series out there” There is a huge difference between the content on TV and web Do you think the series will do well on small screen “The lines are getting blurred every day A lot of people are consuming their TV content online You also have most modern televisions with internet support Girl In The City as I said has been popular on both platforms So in the near future we will only be calling them series and not TV serials and web series And I am hoping that Girl in the city chapter 2 will also be loved by the audiences” Bang Baaja Baaraat starred Ali Fazal and Angira Dhar among others Do you think it will act as a motivation for other producers to make fresh reparable stories for TV “We just made an honest series The credit goes to bindaas for having the vision and trusting the TV audience with this content We need more channels to do so They shouldn’t be afraid of trying new things and they can trust the sensibilities of the audience more”
