DSA is as much yours, as it is ours! (December 2016)

Global climate change talks are proceeding at a pace not seen in many years. There seems to be a greater earnestness now than there has ever been. Paris and then Marrakech! Eagerness to come to identifiable and implementable goals is the paramount objective. At least so, it appears in public estimation. So when they talk climate and it’s changing nature, they invariably focus on to the most apparent aspect of this phenomenon, the oceans and glaciers. While the Himalayan glaciers are losing water rapidly into rivers to which they give birth, the Arctic and Antarctic glaciers are melting fast enough to see rising seas and oceans as the most fundamental climate change problem.

There is something common in the requirement that will make up the future soldier and policeman. Strange as it may seem, because the job profile and the professional role of both these essentials of national security are at such variance to each other. The soldier is, after all, the sword arm of the state, the last option, resort of the government. While the policeman is the essential public interface with the people, the one who ensures that faith is not lost in governance. And that, there is no breakdown in the moral authority of the state.

Anniversary issues have generally been occasions to rejoice over progress made, recount events and developments, and prepare for what is yet to come. And it is something largely followed here as well. But this anniversary issue is different for it comes in the wake of a deep tragedy, followed upon by an announcement of some military significance. So, the anniversary mood is somewhat tempered, as it ought to be in the circumstances. After all, no one can be ignorant or indifferent to the prevailing national mood.

Terrorism is a scourge that has haunted the world for years and threatens to do so for decades to come. There seemed a time when it appeared that the world would unite as one to pursue this infection to its logical end. That era dawned on the 11 September 2001 when the United States was attacked with weapons the world had never used and at a scale which warranted unity and immediate action. For even as the US was attacked, amongst the dead were nationals of many countries. The world was paralysed by the attraction of the main target, the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York.

The origins of Special Forces lie in the beginnings of warfare and the willingness and audacity, of some to try a different method of fighting the same objective, defeating the will of the enemy to continue to fight. Special Forces have always existed as a military unit, mostly as a disorganised but highly motivated lot of volunteers who saw a different operational option. As militaries evolved into better organised services, so did the lot of those who saw themselves as the special, the ones who did things differently. Although it took many more years, lots more wars, for the concept of an organised Special Forces to take root. That too didn’t happen without a fight, but from within.
