Optimising Stress in Sub-Conventional Warfare

K C Dixit (Author) IDSA occasional paper
Synopsis On an average we have been having about 100 suicide cases a year in the past four to five years, so this year has been the same. Mainly it is in insurgency-hit areas, but suicides are also happening in areas where there is no insurgency. Development in such environments has resurlted in a number of stress related incidents and cases of suicides and fratricides, which is definitely a cause of serious concern. While measures initiated to arrest such trend have yielded some positive resutls, a hilistic approach to arrest this trend is definitely required. In general, causative issues of counter insurgency stress are occupational factors like increased workload, lack of adeqate sleep and rest and non grant of timely leave which were highlighted before pressure from family front coupled with host of personal factors in order of priority.
