The Prime Minister of India, Manu Barot, conceives Vrihad Bharat Mission. It is a holistic plan to correct the historical wrongs through an overarching and strident change from the India’s soft state image. It involves reclaiming territories lost or willingly ceded by earlier governments to its neighbouring countries.
Among the eleven identified action areas, for India, the most crucial is liberation of Balochistan from the illegal stranglehold of Pakistan. The canny National Security Adviser has an ingenious plan that involves active cooperation from the other three members of the Quad, those being the US, Japan and Australia. Over several meetings the countries work out RAW protagonists, Vipul and Megha, are in the hot seat. India is waiting for the opportune moment to launch the plan. The Covid19 hit and the related unrest in China—being more devastating than China is willing to admit—provides that.
On August 14, 2020, Baloch rebels strike. The game is on. Within days, the world finds that both China and Pakistan are cut down to size.
