Two days earlier the CCPA under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Morarji Desai considered the report of the Joint Intelligence Committeeof which I was the chairmansetting out its assessment that Pakistan was on its way to produce a nuclear weapon with enriched uranium obtained through the centrifuge process Though I was the additional secretary in the Cabinet Secretariat and the official minutes writerI was not present in that highly hush-hush meeting Apart from the five cabinet ministersthe prime ministerForeign Minister VajpayeeDefence Minister Jagjivan RamHome Minister HM Patel and the Finance Minister Charan Singhonly three officials were present MukarjiV Shankarsecretary to the PMand Sethnachairman of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) After the meetingMukarji dictated the minutes to me to be put on file to get approved by the PM Though Morarji Desaiaccording to Mukarjiwas against initiating any action and he was supported by Vajpayeethe other three ministers wanted the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) to commence research for a weapon After Morarji Desai approved the minutesMukarji instructed me to deliver the handwritten minutes personally to Sethna in Mumbai My second major interaction with Sethna was when he proposed the appointment of Dr Fareeduddin as director of the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) Because of the personal differences that developed between Sethna and Raja Ramanna after the Pokharan testthe latter (who was directorBARC) came away from the DAE and was appointed scientific advisor to the defence minister Sethna wanted to fill up the vacancy When the matter was considered by the cabinets appointments committeeV Shankarthe secretary to the PMexpressed his reservations and suggested that the department be reorganised Prime Minister Morarji Desai then directed that the matter be examined by a committee chaired by Dr Atma Ramthen director-general of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and a close personal friend of the PMthe cabinet secretary and the AEC chairman Since they were busythe matter was remitted to be considered and reported by a representative each of the cabinet secretary and the AEC chairman The cabinet secretary nominated me and Dr Sethna suggested Subramanyam Sivawho had long been secretary to Dr Bhabha and himself When the report was to be finalisedI sought a separate interview with Sethna Since the two of us were privy to the information that the department had been directed to commence research on the weaponI asked Sethna whether it would not be more appropriate that he held the post of BARC directorto lead the programme himself instead of pushing Fareeduddin for the postespecially since he was not a physicist He accepted my point The post of BARC director lay vacant when Indira Gandhion her return to office in 1980transferred Ramanna back to the DAE My third major interaction with Sethna resulted in Morarji Desai having to reverse one of his stands On one of my visits to his officeI asked Sethna whether he was happy with the PMs decision to discuss with the Americans their proposal on examining the feasibility of the full scope safeguards to the Indian nuclear programme Sethna said he was totally opposed to the idea and it was not an American proposal but one initiated by the PMs secretaryV Shankar I pointed out that the PM had told Parliament that it was an American proposal and there was no harm in India discussing it with the US Sethna pulled out of his file the fax message from the Americanswhich referred to the full scope safeguards discussion as Shankars proposal and proceeded to outline the US point of view When I askedSethna readily gave me a photocopy of the documentwhich I then showed the cabinet secretaryNirmal Mukarji He took it to Morarji Desai and told him that he was in danger of being accused of misleading Parliament by presenting it as an American initiative That put an end to further discussions on full scope safeguards with the Americans The writer is a senior defence analyst [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Karan Prashant

Punk lost his first fight in UFC on Sunday against Mickey Gall The much-talked about fight was over even before it became a contest Yes in just a couple of minutes In a couple of minutes Punk was beaten like never before The former WWE superstar left the sports entertainment giants two years ago after an ego clash with the ruling McMahon dynasty He quit WWE but didn’t leave the ring as ‘Best in the World’ went a step ahead into the most brutal sport in the world – Mixed Martial Arts With no prior experience Punk took on a tedious two-year training to make himself compatible for the octagonal But his inhibitions to get rid of his WWE image denied the wrestler early impact in the sport Punk’s training in UFC had been under media scanner ever since it started A video recently circulated mocking his training sessions in which the 38-year old wrestler simply looked out of sorts Responding to the footage at a promotional event for UFC 203 fight Punk said “I’m not gonna be the same guy you saw on ‘a television show’ at UFC 203” This has pretty much been all what Punk has talked about ever since his dramatic exit from WWE The pro-wrestler has fought tooth and nail to overcome the WWE shadow that follows him wherever he goes He’s been hell bent to convince everyone that he is not the same wrestler anymore WWE has long forgotten him and his disastrous exit It is Punk who keeps himself associated with the company even after claims that he has nothing to do with it Also Read |Why the Punk takes a beating but still thinks ‘it’s the time of my life’ Entering UFC 203 to fight against a much younger opponent in Gall Punk did not even leave behind his WWE moniker His entrance music was the same as WWE – The Cult of Personality It sure excited his fans in the arena but again showed how he was still in some way or the other associated with the sport he left behind two years ago In the ring against 24-year old Gall who has trained in martial arts all his life Punk went ahead with WWE tactics and tried a full blown attacking punch He missed and was taken to the ground by Gall who pinned him down and started the assault Punk again used a WWE tactic and tried using the ringside (cage in this case) to get himself out of the submission manoeuvre The commentators mocked him for the move and the fans booed The result of the match was predictable It took 2 minutes for Punk to tap out to the submission hold As much as WWE fans wanted Punk to “get to the summit” Punk’s flawed tactics were evident before and during the clash Before trying to punch his way out of Gall Punk should have remembered what he wrote for Players Tribune “For starters there’s the footwork Everybody is paying attention to your hands but where your feet go is maybe 10 times more important How fast they get you somewhere is probably even more important than that” Punk knows what he needs to do in the ring But it seems he’s finding it difficult to completely turn off the WWE wrestler inside him CM Punk should perhaps build a new persona as Phil Brooks and leave his WWE ‘gimmick’ behind It might just give his UFC career some direction For all the latest Sports News
