Ethiopian students occupy 30 per cent seats at India's defence research training institute
PUNE: The Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), a premier defence research training institute of the country, seems to be attracting interest from the Ethiopian defence ministry, as nearly 30 per cent of the seats for post-graduate courses at the DAIT are occupied by the Ethiopians.
The DIAT deemed university has been contributing in the sphere of human resources development for the defence forces which imparts education and training in defence technology to officers of armed forces, scientists of the DRDO, technical officers of the Ordinance Factory Board, directorate of quality assurance, public sector undertakings and friendly foreign countries.
Educating our officers is a good idea however the military and security forces need to be independent and abide by the constitution. Our brave brothers and sisters that serve in the armed forces and security apparatus have far too often been used as personal attack dogs by our previous and current leaders. It is time we introduce independence, professionalism, honor and nationalism to this prestigious institutions. Educating officers is a start but the main problem is the politicians that have abused them for their own advantage for too long.
All of them are from state of tigray
Poor guys its hard to keep a straight face when you hear an Indian accent, as soon as they say “hellohowareyou” you just wont to burst out laughing,my tax account gets really irritated with me lol.
Seriously speaking India has been described by experts as an emerging powerhouse with nuclear weapons and has the third largest army in the world. For this reason and others India serves as a model for Ethiopia and other countries wanting to progress from the third world status.
They send all the tegaruus and calling them Ethiopian student is not fair . Ethiopa is land of many tribes and they are choked to death by tribalist junta TPLF.
Mj tyson i feel you. I hope our students dont bust an intestine by over holding the laughter they will get from listening to lectures by the indian profs. This is good. India and china are the way of the 21st century, and we have been able to snatch what we need from both seemingly. Im sure results will be seen both economically and professionally in Ethiopia the next 2-3 years.
Wow they sold Oromo land to the Indians . And used that money to educate the tegaruus , is that what u call it education of Ethiopian students? That’s another weyanees 100 years plan of looting and killing of true Ethiopians.
it is reserved only for tigres at our cost for building their military for tigrai after separation of tigrai from rest of ethipia.
MJ Tyson and Fitawrari, two ignorant infants…who are you to laugh at Indians? Worry about the world who laughs everytime they see your black face.
Indians have launched satelites into outter space, you only wish you could be like them. Dedeb.
Fenji regach primitive woyane, BANDA ARMY OF LEGESSE learning some cool fighting in India.
6% of the population. 99.6% of Ethiopian Army.
of course all of them are tigres for now …however no matter how much they trained when the time comes the end of woyanes all will be in the grave of oromia land
The real observer you are right.But all these people are recruited if they are the members of EPRDF.This the stupid thing i hate.As far as some one is Ethiopian national and has the capacity and interest he/she has to be given the opportunity to be trained and serve the country.I am really tired of such kind of mentality of the leaders.
The traning is good, but the AIM and goal has has to be to serve truley, democraticaly the people, if not , it will be poision.
‘Thee X’, it is not your problem weather they are Tigrean or Oromian.YOU Eritrians are always crying.
Mr Thee X
You are a stupid parrot of the so called OLF.
There was and will be no “Oromo land".
It is an Ethiopian Land. No one has any right to sell Ethiopian fertile land to anyone.
Woyane Tigre and its OPDO and ANDM have sold Metekel and Welege province to England.
The English slave traiders and the blood sucker of Africans shall perish. England is the patron of TPLF. Hell with English and French bastards!!
India and China are rising.
India will soon colonise the Island apes of united kingdom.
Viva Tunsia and Egypt!!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I read comments for and against different issues. Please make constructive comments, suggestions in such a way that peoples of different ethnicity, religion, culture etc
can live together with mutual help with
another. Perhaps initiating a national dialogue could help us to come together
to deal with our social ills.
good job EPRDF !!
It is now clear where those workers who transferred from Tigrai to Addis Ethio Telecom HQ trained. I don’t know when Meles changes his mind of being a leader of TPLF and of the whole Ethiopia. He should think for the future of his son, doughter and the people of Tigrai. He should stop storing hatrade to the people of Ethiopia. Please wake up and be the leader of Ehiopia. Break the bridge ot triabalism, dismember EPRDF and form a unitary party out of it which is genuine for democracy.
Why are we thinking this way, after I read the article I was expecting the usual “they all are tigres” type of comment and as usual you can see some here. First of all the army shouldn’t be subject to this kind of discussion, you are expecting the army to protect you and at the same time you continue to put unnecessary comments that question its legitimacy, second of all even if they all are tigres if they deserve it and are capable of doing the job why not. The military is not here to please “ethnicities", the army doesn’t work in quotas. In US 40% of the population is hispanic but are they complaining about quotas in the army NO cause they know that’s not the most important issue. If you question the ability of the ethiopian students just read the article properly.
Quotes from the article:
“The Ethiopian students are bright and adapt to the Indian culture quickly”
“A strict process of admission is followed where the aspirants undergo an entrance examination and an interview. The minimum requirement for the admission is B.Tech”
I have to admit in our actual army some key positions are given to tigres, but you have to consider the way this army was built. I’m sure this will change and is changing right now.
Sending love to injera
It is good news to hear since it saves huge expenditure to train by ourselves; difusses uptodate knowledge and skill to the remaining army; and helps us own standby ary to defend any outside sudden attack.
