The Prithvi is not a particularly sophisticated missile, incorporating propulsion technology derived from the Soviet SA-2 surface-to-air missile.
The Indian army is reluctant to incorporate the Prithvi-I into its practices largely because of its lack of precision and the difficulties associated with its liquid fuel.
The Prithvi is reported to have a relatively high circular error probable (CEP) -- 300 meters at 150 km range and 500 meters at 250 km range, (0.2 percent of the range).

Prithvi Theatre is primarily a theatre venue, yet, a number of projects supported by Prithvi have little to do with the usual agenda of a theatre venue and far more to do with agendas for growth both of the theatre and in the theatre.
Prithvi has come up with a scaled theatre rent and ticket rate to enable performing groups to survive economically as well as develop an audience.
The Prithvi Festivals have emerged as an extension of this process, an attempt to assess the situation of theatre in Mumbai, India or the world today so that we may better respond to the needs, gaps, and sometimes alarming holes in the entire framework of theatre in our country.

While the sources declined to divulge the exact time frame for testing and trials of the naval Prithvi, they stressed that the entire attention was now focussed on its development as work on the Army and Air Force variants of the missile had already been completed.
The naval Prithvi is understood to be a more complex system to develop as its guidance system would perforce have to be capable of operating in two mediums-sea and air.
The ultimate induction of a missile like the naval Prithvi is expected to lend a lot of punch to the Indian Navy as it was expected to enhance its reach.

 The Shahs
Prithvi Narayan Shah (1769-1775 A.D.), with whom we move into the modern period of Nepal's history, was the ninth generation descendant of Dravya Shah (1559-1570 A.D.), the founder of the ruling house of Gorkha.
Thus King Prithvi Narayan Shah unified the Kathmandu Valley and Kathmandu became the capital of the modern Nepal by 1769 A.D. Once the foundation of the Kingdom of Nepal was thus laid, King Prithvi Narayan Shah, turned his attention towards the east.
King Prithvi Narayan Shah, The Great, by his tireless efforts was successful in bringing together diverse religio-ethnic groups under one national banner and inculcating in them a sense of national pride and belonging.

Prithvi Narayan Shah inherited the rule of the hilly Gorkha kingdom in 1742, at the age of 20.
He believes Prithvi Narayan Shah was inspired purely by an ambition to expand the borders of his kingdom initially, and was determined to avoid the defeat his father, Nar Bhupal Shah, had to face.
Prithvi Narayan Shah’s ability to unify such a diverse variety of people in such different geographical locations had as much to do with his economic policy as with his ability to win the hearts and minds of the people whose rulers he defeated.

The Prithvi is a classic case of technological determinism where an existing technological artifact has generated its own demands for a military doctrine as evidenced by the general staff quality requirement debate between the army and DRDO.
Furthermore, the Prithvi is neither state-of-the-art nor does it mark a quantum leap in military capability.
But "induction" of the Prithvi into the armed forces must not be allowed to become an end in itself.

 Bringing Prithvi Down to Earth
There are two versions of Prithvi: Prithvi I is said to carry a payload of 1000kg to a maximum range of 150km, while Prithvi II carries 500kg to 250km.
Prithvi is fuelled by a liquid propellant, which is highly volatile, corrosive and toxic; thus, it has to be loaded just prior to launch, dangerous to crew in case of spillage or leaks, and cannot be used for practice exercises.
We calculate the number of Prithvis needed to ensure a reasonable probability of significant damage to the different kinds of targets listed earlier using the most optimal choice of warhead and assuming a range of values for Prithvi's CEP.

By 1996 an unspecified number of Prithvi's were believed to be in the possession of the Indian Army's 333 Missile Group, which was reportedly headquartered in Secunderabad.
The association of this complex with the Prithvi missile system is the most probable interpretation, and alternative explanations for the function of this complex are not apparent.
Although it is not possible to determine the number of missiles and associated vehicles present at the facility at the time the imagery was acquired, several vehicles of dimensions consistent with those associated with the Prithvi are in evidence, suggesting at least that the facility is currently in use.
