Richa Chadha's Galwan remark: Why sensitivity cannot be ignored | In Our Defence Ep 34

In this episode of In Our Defence, we discuss the actor Richa Chadha's tweet on Galwan clashes that caused a furore on social media.

This episode is dedicated to a weird crossover: China, Pakistan and Bollywood.

Well, for the uninitiated, the trigger is #RichaChadha. The Bollywood actor is facing a lot of flak for her tweet on ‘Galwan’. In the tweet, she reacted to the Northern Army Commander Lt General Upendra Dwivedi's statement that the Indian Army is ready to execute orders like taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). 'Galwan says hi,' the actor tweeted, sharing a post on the statement.


But, was her remark in good taste? Was Galwan a tactical failure of the Indian Army? Does the army factor in the social media response and equation?

Dev Goswami, the show's host, and "Def-Savvy" Abhishek Bhalla, the national bureau chief, discuss in the 34th episode of In Our Defence.
