Chennai: Development without security is vulnerable, said eminent nuclear scientist Rajagopala Chidambaram as he pitched for a "militarily strong" India.

The former atomic energy commission chairman also stressed the need for substantial rise in the country's Human Development Index to become a developed nation.

"India of our dreams is economically developed, scientifically advanced and militarily strong. National development and national security are two sides of the same coin," he said, adding that development without security is vulnerable and security without development meaningless.

Chidambaram was addressing students at the '14th graduation day of Anna University' here.
