Maj Gen Harsha Kakar (Retd)
I was commissioned into the Regiment of Artillery in Jun 1979 and superannuated in Mar 2015 as a Major General. During my military service, I held a variety of appointments in every part of the country including J and K and the North East.
I was the head of department in strategic studies at the College of Defence Management, where I wrote extensively on futuristic planning and enhancing joint operations. I also served as part of the United Nations peace keeping operations in Mozambique. In addition to training courses in India I attended the National Security Studies Course at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto. I am the first officer from India to attend this course.
