    Did the submarine come back up?
    After the crew digested their curry, how would they keep it down?

    What are they going to do with one sub? They couldn't stray too far from their home port, because they can't support a submarine at long ranges.

    I'm still trying to figure out why India thinks they need a sub.

    Curry is a good food, Indian people don't smell, and they have a rich culture and cuisine that goes far beyond simply curry. So much for tolerance or multi-culturalism here

    Re: India launches nuclear submarine

    With regards to political correctness this is a very strong and positive move by India, and as bluntly as I can put it: its about freakin' time!

    Honestly, I'm pretty cheerful this whole thing, in fact India is a very strong ally that is unfortunately overlooked by the U.S. India is kind of like an American wannabe anyway and the country serves its purpose as by launching a nuclear submarine.

    Same reason every other nation that has nuclear boats has them: deterence.

    One of the requirements for a successful first-strike attack is having the assurance that all targets aimed at will be destroyed on the first shot, thereby eliminating the enemy's ability to retaliate.

    Having part of one's nuclear arsenal hiding out under the dark cold waters of the sea introduces a serious element of uncertainty into the potential attacker's plans, and that's how the US won the Cold War without nuking anyone.

    India's going to make China sweat, because they have a submarine? I think it's going to take alot more than that.

    They have a boomer, or an attack boat? If they only have an attack boat, they won't be deterring much.
