Has this been discussed here? I found it pretty interesting.

Farkhor is an Indian Airbase located in Farkhor/Ayni in Tajikistan,130 kilometres (80 miles) south east of the capital Dushanbe. It is the only Indian military base situated in a foreign country and just 2 km from the Tajik-Afghan border. The agreement between India and Tajikistan for the base was signed in 2003 and ratified in late 2004. It stipulates the presence of the Indian Air Force and Indian Army to be permanently stationed there, and ward off any external threat to the country's security. Work on the base commenced immediately and the air base is now in full operational readiness since early 2007.

Yes - this was discussed here before - and I do find it very interesting that India's able to set up a base outside of our country.
