Indian Defence: Crisis and Challenges

N C Asthana (Author) Anjali Nirmal (Author)

An extremely exhaustive and comparative study of the armies; the armor; the artillery, the air forces; the navies; the missile forces; the nuclear weapons; ground warfare; air warfare; naval warfare; military doctrines and military might of India, Pakistan and China. All that matters on matters military is to be found in these pages. A rare insight into the subject of defence, and must read for lay men, students, media persons, policy-makers, and men of the armed forces. Why this book is vital for all of us? Because you need to be enlightened. For most people defence has become synonymous with military hardware and we keep on spending on everything the military men ask for because nobody has the wisdom to question it. Given the fact that a nuclear Pakistan would not let itself be defeated at any cost, and that the Chinese could nuke us for even tactical reasons, we must have a serious relook at the way we approach our defence concerns. Can the armed forces, in spite of Rs. 164,000 crore spent on them every year guarantee a decisive victory or a ‘solution of the Pakistan problem’? No! This shocking book exposes the weak underbelly of India. India as a nation is mentally absolutely unprepared for fighting a war and enduring all its horrors. This book predicts that whether our armies are winning or taking a beating, the moment the war touches the Indians who matter (that is, the rich, the beautiful and the powerful), urban India would start buckling. The clarion call of the media and the opinion-builders would be ‘peace at any cost’ and they would suggest surrender even before the thought has crossed the mind of the adversary. In the end, Pakistan or China will not defeat you, your own TV channels and magazines will. That’s where the real military crisis of India lies.

About the author

N C Asthana

Dr. N.C. Asthana, IPS, Inspector General, holds a doctorate in Physics and in his outlook and approach remains a scientist first and foremost. He is a veritable polymath; a sui generis myriad-minded progeny of learning who epitomizes a singular synthesis of an unprecedented depth of knowledge in the most diverse fields and an exceptionally creative intellect. Talent does what it can, and genius does what it must; he combines both. The present book is a classic example of the tremendous command with which he expounds simultaneously on subjects as disparate as particles physics, cosmology, neuroscience, molecular biology, pphilosophy and metaphysics, etc. in a most scholarly and yet exceptionally lucid manner. He has earlier authored the world's very first book on the science of intelligence entitled "Intelligence and Security Management", and hitherto the most exhaustive study on terrorism entitled "Terrorism, Insurgencies and Counter-insurgency Operations".
