India readies nuclear sub for sea trials

Given that 600,000,000 Indians suffered a power cut last week, perhaps they should plug that sub’s reactor into the national grid (they’d then only need another 240 submarines to make up the country’s megawatt shortfall, so perhaps not a practical suggestion), or at least invest in some infrastructure projects. Hundreds of millions of people in India live in poverty – over half the population by some measures. These are people who live without clean water, sanitation or sufficient food – still got money for nuclear missile armed submarines though. You have to question these folks’ priorities.
