In the concluding part of Walk the Talk with Anil Kakodkar, one of India's premier nuclear scientists, he talks about his experience as the youngest ever Chairman of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and tackling bureaucrats and ministers from various ministries. He describes how Indian nuclear scientists have evaded being penetrated by intelligence agencies like the CIA, and about all the facades they had to create to distract the CIA. He justifies the decision to execute Pokhran 2 in 1998 and how India has tackled the pressure to sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. He also says that the fission technology since the 1974 Pokhran tests has developed by leaps and bounds which has negated the need for a fusion device. (Watch Part 1)
