Army’s Role In Nation Building

Author: Lt Gen Ghanshyam Singh Katoch AVSM, VSM

The Indian Army represents a model for national development due to its high sense of purpose and secular outlook. Its contribution to nation building is inherent in the fulfilment of its primary function – ensuring the security of India.


Manning The Borders

Author: Lt Gen Vinod Bhatia PVSM, AVSM, SM (Retd)

The LoC and AGPL are manned by the Army and the few BSF battalions deployed on the LoC are under command and operational control of the Army. As the Indo-Tibetan Border Police on the LAC is not under the operational control of the Army there is a lack of coordination and accountability, defeating the very concept of the one force one border as enunciated by the GoM.

Nation Building With Excellence In Discipline

Author: Lt Gen Prakash Katoch PVSM, UYS M, AVSM, SC (Retd)

The sterling job that the Army is doing as part of ‘Op Sadbhavna’ has to be seen to be believed. The Indian Army has been engaged in nation-building through all the decades since Independence. That is the reason it is called the last bastion on which the country can fall upon. Can the Army contribute more to nation-building? It sure can, especially since it is steeped in discipline.


Challenges For Modernisation

Author: Lt Gen Philip Campose PVSM, AVSM, VSM** (Retd)

A new beginning has been made recently by commencing the process of raising the Army Design Bureau at Secunderabad. A lot however will depend on how the Army leadership nurtures this fledgling organisation and develops it appropriately to achieve results comparable to its naval counterpart.
