Police Management - A Crying Need For Reforms and Modernisation

| | | Share |

The world has now recognised the power of management and the consequences of mismanagement. In an era where the complexities of warfare are changing rapidly from conventional to the ‘war by proxy’ modus, India is learning its lessons the hard way … as the attack on the Pathankot airbase by Pakistani terrorists has recently demonstrated. India needs to apply both ‘micro’ and ‘macro’ management techniques to improve and amalgamate the respective qualities of its armed forces, the paramilitary forces collectively called the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) and the State police to set up a flexible but impregnable shield against foreign inspired terrorism, smuggling, arms transfers, counterfeit currency and organised crime.

Sentinels Nonpareil

| | | Share |

Armies are known worldwide for a special reason and that is their hardcore discipline. The first and mandatory step for all recruits who join the Army is to indoctrinate discipline in their lives from the moment they don olive greens. As a matter of fact, this passion for discipline stays with them even after retirement from the force. This very strong, impressive and motivating personality trait also reflects in their communities and society. In case of the Indian Army, while discipline is the bedrock of this force, the fact remains, that an amalgamation of the diversity of the nation as a whole sets it apart from other military establishments all over the world.

| | | Share |

To understand the importance of maritime capabilities one has to keep in mind the inexorable fact that 70.9 per cent of the globe is water and just 29.1 per cent is land. It is also a historical truism that the British Isles, a little bigger than a speck on the world map, for centuries sustained an empire on which the sun never set because Britain ruled the waves. Britain trawled the empire to sustain its economy and its global hegemony. With the sun having set on the empire decades ago, politicians and geo-strategists surmised that a vacuum had been created ‘East of Suez’. For a brief interlude, this vacuum was filled by the US whose aircraft carriers belligerently roamed the oceans causing turbulence in their wakes. After 1990 when the Soviet Union collapsed, US was the sole super power.

Defence Industrial Base - The Way Forward

| | | Share |

With the world fast levitating into the Fourth Generation Warfare syndrome, developing nations like India are on the anvil to bolster and toughen up their National Security. Threats and challenges have increased multifold and there is an urgency to pay attention to the discrepancies caused due to years of neglect in procurement of modern military wherewithal for our armed forces. India has been fortunately blessed with an unusual progeny of warriors in our Forces who have demonstrated that they can deal with enemies appropriately with ‘whatever we have’ ... as in Kargil!!

Reflections for New Direction

| | | Share |

As a conscientious and responsible citizen of India I was shattered and very disturbed by the 26/11 terrorist attack and mayhem at Mumbai. More so by the fact that India was caught unawares and totally unprepared for such an onslaught. 26/11 triggered a chain of thoughts and cerebrations along with my friend and former member of Indian Parliament Manvendra Singh that culminated in the idea of creating a platform that will facilitate dissemination, discussion and debate on defence and security of India and the world. Thus was conceptualised and born DSA.
