Nuclear Uncertainties

Nuclear non proliferation has hit centre stage with pressure on India to sign the NPT.  At stake may be the Indo-US nuclear deal?

At the same time retired scientists are saying that the Pokhran II tests in 1998 were a 'fizzle' and India should conduct more nuclear tests to develop a credible nuclear deterrence.

India is developing a 'fast breeder' reactor to be able to utilise the vast Thorium reserves to make nuclear fuel.  In parallel India is shopping for the vital nuclear fuel, which it needs to generate electricity, from any country which will sell it.

In the PMs vision India should be able to generate 47,000 MW of electricity by 2050. Will we achieve it?

Where do we go from here?
