ABOUT ME

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.

Post my superannuation, I have settled in Lucknow where I extensively write for a few newspapers, magazines and online newsletters. I am also a security analyst on India Today TV, Aaj Tak, DD UP and other small channels. My articles span a wide spectrum covering international relations, strategic threats (both military and non-military with emphasis on South Asia), defence planning and capacity building, national security and politico-military cooperation.

My articles are here for you to read, share and use as knowledge. Knowledge is meant to be shared. Views are my own, based on my research, understanding and thought process. You are welcome to agree or disagree. You may comment on them, if you so desire, however would request you to keep your language civil and courteous. 

Of the collection which I have published till date, for a start, I have uploaded only relevant articles. The topics are subject wise. There may be a variation in opinion when you search for select articles. As the site develops and I learn more about blogging, I would continuously keep revisiting and resetting the pages. Enjoy reading those which have been uploaded.
