Words are not enuf to summarize the importance of this book A great insight and literally an eye opener at some places Yes, this nation may be deteriorating piece by piece because of the intricacies it faces If diversity is our strength then ironically it could be a weakness too People can be broken separated classified divided on the basis of language, religion, socioeconomic parameters etc At last it is the people of this nation Beautiful collection of essays Full of trivia It s the kind of book that would have godsend during my CBSE schooling days for the writing section of the English exam The sentences are beautifully constructed, the advices rendered are generic and yet actionable A great in Folks who are from the Security Physical Logical and Defense domain do not need any introduction to the credentials of Captain Raghu Raman Ex Serviceman, CEO of a Security Consulting Group, Leadership speaker at Ivy League business schools and most recently CEO of National Intelligence Grid The vast experience he holds which made me pick up this book This book is in three parts 1.Terrorism and Asymmetric Warfare2.Lessons learned from Armed Forces3.Understanding National Security and our role in securing our own environmentsThe topics covered in this book range from topics which is closer to us such as physical security to broader geopolitical issues The language is simple to understand and it gives a common man a good understanding of the subject.Few interesting points that I noted 1.The root cause of war is nothing but a competition to grab scarce resources The main objective of war is often obscured in a religious or political dogma2.Though being a defense personal and now working in a related domain, the author seems to be in most of his essays against the concept of war stating it to be an economic drain to the country.3.He also states that the real aim of terrorism is to create fear psychosis and that it is an attack to the morale of the people He stresses on increased costs of enhanced security which a nation has to go through as a result of these actsI also loved the great nuggets of information and historical wartime anecdotes cited in this book The book offers deep, interesting insights into the problems of the world at large and how they affect India It is an easy book to read and draws the reader into the subject by offering unique perspectives.I loved the way the author finished each essay Breathtaking and chilling at the same time. Too disappointing for my expectation It doesn t cite proper examples of army situations and dilemmas, not even anecdotes of the men in action The book is a collection of insightful essays so don t expect anything in detail The author just A good collection of the author s essays, which originally appeared in a weekly column in The Mint While all essays make for interesting reading, some particularly stand out for their insight, particularly on terrorism and organized crime. A compilation of thought proving essays on defense and internal security strategy Appealing and highly recommended for all indian and international readers My Book Review can be read here.
