In India they called Armenia “Silicon Valley of the CIS” and explained the sale of SWATHI radars

The Indian media published material on deepening cooperation between India and Armenia. The author of the material is observer Aditi Bhaduri. The author notes that many in India do not even know where Armenia is, but in Armenia they are well aware of India and are ready to follow the path of cooperation.


In the article: “Caucasian contacts: why rapprochement with Armenia is very important for India”, the author quite unexpectedly calls Armenia “Silicon Valley of the CIS”.

From material in the Indian press:

Armenia is considered the Silicon Valley of the CIS, is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union, and also has a partnership agreement with the European Union. Being on the threshold of Europe, in the very heart of the Caucasus and having a border with Iran, the geopolitical position of Armenia is of great importance. By deepening ties with this country, India will get everything it can and will not lose anything.

The author recalls a recent contract worth about $ 40 million for the supply of SWATHI radars from the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) for the needs of the Armenian armed forces and explains the feasibility of the transaction.

In the article:

This opens up new prospects for cooperation for both countries, and defense cooperation is always long-term. Such supplies help countries such as Armenia, as they are cheaper than European counterparts. They also open up new markets for India and give a big impetus to domestic defense production.

Indian media particularly emphasize that Yerevan supports New Delhi's position on Kashmir. At the same time, Aditi Bhaduri said that India did not expect such support from Turkey. Against such a background, the author recalls that during the First World War, the Armenians were subjected to genocide by the Ottoman Empire, which present Ankara does not recognize.

      I did not understand why the article refers to Armenia as the "Silicon Valley of the CIS" ...
      In the presence of a progressive, developed scientific and technical base? One that stands out from the rest of the CIS?

      And where is all this? The author did not say no

      Or, is it just a traditional Indian cinema with dances that, in our opinion, are not always out of place?

        No one probably did not understand this thesis, even probably the Armenians. It was especially funny that the "Silicon Valley of the CIS" bought Indian radars. I thought that the Indians bought something from Armenia and justify the purchase with this term, like: you are the same Armenian technology .... (to be honest, only cognac came to mind). And they didn’t buy, but therefore they most likely sold flattery from India, like you are the smartest in the CIS because you chose our radars, we always knew that you were “Silicon Valley of the CIS” and now there is also a valley with our radars wink PS No offense to the Armenians, all of the above

            Yes .. From the detector receiver, which is based on a semiconductor, such as silicon (lat. Silicium).
            They collectively solved the rebus about what the Indians did mean.

              I know Silicon Valley, located in the USA, but here is SILICONE Valley ... what is it? Is this the place where silicone breasts are implanted for women or pores are removed?
              Or is it just a cattle translation? The word valley (valley) translated to silicon (silicon) no? This is often committed by all federal channels and others. Mutku and then probably would have been more competent.

              I suggest then, for the sake of ignorance, to translate: New York (instead of New York), United States of America, Lawer (Lower) Novgorod (Nizhny Novgorod), Rostov-on-Don (Rostov-on-Don), etc.

        Veganism is not doing well. Plus, hemp in India is very picky. In addition to the silicone valley - Armenia, the sea gate - Tajikistan, the Ruhr region - Kyrgyzstan, are forgotten.

        East is a delicate matter! Praise is in the order of things. But with Silicon Valley is clearly overkill! Or not knowing the meaning of Silicon Valley in principle. Or we don’t know something.

          If we talk about specific projects that have entered the international level, and, in fact, have become drivers for the Armenian start-up industry, then one can not fail to note, for example, PicsArt, which takes second place after Instagram. The game industry is also developing, for example, the famous game Shadowmatic has become popular all over the world.
          According to the expert, the Zangi messenger application also occupies a worthy place in the global market.

            No one denies that they have good startups, but calling Armenia the Silicon Valley of the CIS is clearly too much.

          Yes, it’s just that this Indian “activist” (Aditi Bhaduri) apparently heard that in the mountains of Armenia there are a lot of natural Cavtz (SiO2), well, you’ve gotten together and christened Armenia “Silicon Valley” .... laughing
          But in fact, during the Soviet era, Armenia had a fairly developed electronic industry - they produced Hrazdan computers and microcircuits .....
          That's just their reputation was .... Well, let's say this - OH!
          There were once in our laboratory 3 "desktop" computers (if you can call them that!) "Electronics D3-28". One is of Smolensk production, the second is Kazan, and the third is Yerevan. Smolenskaya - worked very stably, Kazan - sometimes "buggy", and Yerevan - just did not work (from the word "aaaaaaaa!"). So it was written off ....
          One of the colleagues somehow could not stand it: "Pay attention! The farther south - the WORSE is the quality!"
          PS I’m not going to offend Armenians at all! Just - "what was - it was!"

          Since Soviet times, Armenia has been covening at construction sites throughout Russia. Moreover, they were then paid better than others. Not to mention the markets where they earned much more than Soviet workers and engineers. Perhaps this is also one of the reasons why the Armenians fell in love with Russia. hi

The hot climate and the lack of ecology as such allow nature to synthesize a huge variety of all kinds of vitamin complexes for a better perception of reality.

        Essentially. At BESM-6, he considered a mine rocket launch - a thesis, a very long time ago. Our entire BESM series is very good. Actually, if it were not for the moronic copying of the IBM series that came out under the EU labels (EU-1010, ..., 1055, ...), then everything would have been nice. Waited for BESM-10 (Elbrus), but did not wait. And counting on the EU-1055 was a torment in comparison with the calculations on the French “Iris” or the American “Vax”.

    Good day to all. It is all about politics, not silicone brains. India is in conflict with Pakistan, Pakistan has very good contacts with China, both of these countries are geopolitical opponents of India. Pakistan is a close partner and supporter of Azerbaijan. On the territory of the NKAR (Karabakh and the occupied territories of other regions of Azerbaijan) there are gold deposits which are very successfully "picked" by Indian firms. This is where the support from Armenia comes from - problems with Kashmir, the purchase of weapons from India, and the interests of the Indians in Armenia.

    All this is outside of Armenia. In Armenia itself there were no chances, and probably will not be. India, like Kashmir is taking revenge. For the position of Turkey and Azerbaijan in this matter, he makes cheap compliments towards Armenia, shoving some cumbersome in addition and backward radar.

      That is, for your reasons - India is an enemy for the Turks and Turks.
      Then answer - Turkey is an enemy for Russia?

    You are right - there is everywhere. Let's just say that in Armenia it is higher than in 90% of the countries of the world. The question is to use this potential.


    It's like in a joke from KVN

    On stage, the Armenian team and the Georgian team :

    Armenians - Armenians are better than Georgians wink !
    Georgians - the better belay ?
    Armenians - Than Georgians yes .

    Armenia is considered the Silicon Valley of the CIS, and is a member of the Eurasian Economic Community and also has a partnership agreement with the European Union. Sitting on the threshold of Europe, in the heart of the Caucuses, and having a border with Iran, Armenia's geo-political location is significant. By deepening ties with the country, India would have everything to gain, and nothing to lose.

    There are radio-electronic productions in Armenia. But she clearly does not pull on the title of “Silicon Valley of the CIS”. Russia and Belarus are fighting here, but leadership over Russia

    Hovhannes Adamyan (color television), brothers Alikhanyan (nuclear physics), Victor Hambartsumyan (astrophysics), Boris Babayan (supercomputers), Vagan Damadyan (MRI), Richard Donchyan (exchanges), Anna Kazanchyan (engineering), Alexander Mantashev (oil), Luther George Simjyan (ATM), Tigran Takhta (mathematics), Alenush Teryan (astrophysics) ... Moreover, not all Armenians are on this list in the field of natural sciences. Not counting 2 world chess champions.
    You would (I turn to “well-wishers” and explicit Turks) not be too lazy and look at information about at least Eduardo Ernekyan, and then joke about Armenian radio.
    Yes, while all your oil and gas gadgets are the century before last, from the time of Mantashev.

    By the way, I was also waiting for the assessment of your neighbors hi but apparently they all fled to India to ask the author of the seeds for seedlings, the crap is apparently really picky laughing
    There are about 30 million Armenians in the world (if I'm not mistaken), their own church and nationalism (not to be confused with Nazism) allow more or less to be preserved and not assimilated. Of course, many prominent scientists regarding the number, as in any other nation.

    Reminded of a story. I talked with a colleague from the States for a long time, never a person, not a name, not a Gram, not an Armenian, but here we have a dime a dozen in the south, we can easily distinguish not only Armenians from Circassians, Georgians and Abkhazians, even if they changed their name three times into Russian, but even if there is a distant relationship, for example, Armenian roots from grandfather or grandmother. Suddenly, last year in Insta I saw him with his whole family, in ribbons of the tricolor of the Armenian flag celebrating April 24 as the day of the victims of the genocide or whatever it is called right there. I ask questions and it turns out that he is “patented”, thoroughbred, Armenian, his wife also has Armenian roots, his maternal aunt is a well-known historian in the United States, and another maternal relative is either a fighter or an action movie. But at the same time, frankly, he was stunned by his somewhat negative attitude towards Armenia. I used to think that Armenians, like the Jews, had an attitude towards Armenia, and indeed many had earlier prophesied that Armenia would become a small copy of Israel in Transcaucasia. He asked questions, it turned out that there were negative impressions from a trip to Armenia back in the days of Serge Sargsyan, well, everything is clear with that. Well, the funny thing is, it turns out he was well pissed off by a local guide, or a guide with stories about the history of Armenia, the struggle of Armenians, etc., everyone has his own story. He told a lot of interesting things, before that he thought that I knew quite well the Caucasus and the history of the Caucasian peoples, both indigenous and alien.
    One moment, this is about your neighbors. More such an assessment is visible because whatever one may say, but Amer, this is the relations of Armenia with Iran. True, he appealed more to the fact that Iran is essentially the same Azerbaijanis with whom they are fighting in Karabakh. He does not understand the hatred of local Armenians towards Azerbaijanis (Persian Turks, not to be confused with the Ottomans), since the Persian Turks were always loyal to the Armenians, and their dynasties ruled Iran (the Persian province of which was modern Azerbaijan, and Armenia, which was the Persian khanate ) the last few centuries, plus the majority in the leadership of modern Iran are also traditionally Persian Turks, for example, the current spiritual leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, is a Persian Turk, or speaking our way and as bequeathed to I.V. Stalin, an Azerbaijani . Persia during the reign of the Turkish dynasties there did not persecute the Armenians for no reason and never was an ally of the Ottoman Turkey, which the Armenians accuse of genocide and for decades have sought worldwide recognition of the Armenian genocide.
    Funny moment. It turns out that most of the Armenians live in the United States in Los Angeles (Los Armenias) and in California, a colleague suggested simply paying attention to the faces of extras, extras in many Hollywood films shot precisely in the vicinity of Hollywood, in California. It never occurred to me, but how I began to look closely, through one Armenian person - so the next time you can mention the contribution of Armenians to the world film industry.
    The funniest moment. In Los Angeles, somehow there were clashes of “whites” with blacks, on this occasion, a colleague put it if you say “we kicked our ass black-ass!”, I almost choked with saliva with laughter, I had to explain to his great disappointment what it means in our conditions it is a phrase and who would be "black".

    And about scientists and designers ... All is well, except for example the moment when Uncle Mikoyan created his design bureau, sticking to him Gurevich, who took a high-speed fighter from Russian and Soviet aircraft designer Polikarpov ... Well, another figure, already our Russian using the aircraft industry, it almost buried the MiG and caused significant damage to the domestic civil aviation, aircraft manufacturing, and the country's budget.

    Well, about Armenia, as about the silicone valley of the CIS, I agree with the majority - it all depends on what to smoke. Well, and another version - it all depends on the frequency of visits of Kim Kardashian to his historical homeland, during her stay, perhaps Armenia really becomes a silicon valley laughing

    If Ankara supported India’s position on Kashmir, then they certainly would not have recognized the Armenian genocide. Armenians know and are very good at using all means, if only the countries would recognize their "genocide". The Armenians themselves staged a real genocide in Khojaly (Azerbaijan) in February 1992 !!! And this genocide began in 1905-1906, 1918 !!!
