India Under Fire: Essays on National Security Rs.350.00/-


“India has the potential to be to Asia, what America is to the world – a symbol of hope, liberty and freedom.”

From aggressive, devious neighbours to well-armed internal insurgents, the list of those taking aim at our nation is long. Our morally bankrupt political system and blinkered bureaucracy only compounds the mess.

As the editor of Indian Defence Review, Bharat Verma lives by a simple philosophy: ‘Don’t give me a list of problems, give me solutions.’

Solutions are what he offers in this sequel to Fault Lines, a compilation of his writings since then.

From ways to counter China’s imperial ambitions, to why a splintered Pakistan is in India’s interest.

Why we need to develop not just cutting edge defence industries but also have an offensive orientation against those gunning for our democracy.

Because at the end of the day, national interest is supreme.

In this riveting series of columns, Verma takes a 360 degree look at the strategic and military challenges facing India today, and suggests ways and means to overcome them.
