I think India is right to at least APPEAR as though they are doing something to make China think twice about absorbing India into the fold.
I don't know that ONE sub is going to do it. Nuclear subs can be sunk just like any other.
If China starts marching, I don't think they can be stopped.

Does not matter, unless there has been a name changed, China is ruled by a communist party. Which stillmakes china a Communist country.
The Defence Research and Development Organisation is to conduct the final test launch of the K-15, India's first submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) from off the coast of Visakhapatnam on Tuesday. The missile can carry a one-tonne nuclear weapon to a distance of 700 km.
On Tuesday, the calm sea around Vizag will be breached by the roar of a missile rising from under the sea, geyser-like. Climbing to a height of five kilometers, the missile will ignite a solid booster which will arc it to a distance of over 700 km over the Bay of Bengal.

Every time India does something like this it warms my heart.
For some reason, still unkown to me, I'm an India fan-boy.
If the US should have allies, India should definitely be one of them. they're an up-coming super power, and it's my belief that India combined with the (hopefully soon reformed to be more free) US along with the rest of our NATO allies (and S. Korea) could keep China/N.K./Russia/terrorist groups at bay.
Lets hope our leaders look at it the same way.
