India at Risk

The Prize!

5 winners win a copy of "India At Risk by Jaswant Singh"

Revealing many misunderstandings, misconceptions and untruths about the wars India fought in the past decades, Jaswant Singh’s new book India at Risk is a powerful revelation of what really happened behind the scenes, and among the military personnel and political figures of the highest order, during times of crisis.

Experience over sixty-six years of independence reveals that India has failed when confronted with challenges to national security, external or internal. The challenges have been comprehensive, but the response consistently amateurish.

Why, asks Jaswant Singh. Is it on account of conceptual fault lines or fractures in governance? Both, says Jaswant Singh, ably laying bare the challenges, responses and the consequences of failing to reach the goal of credible defence and security in independent India.

Having directly handled the responsibility of managing a whole series of security-related challenges, Jaswant Singh provides a uniquely informed and illuminating analysis of the major challenges that India has faced over the last sixty-six years: the conflicts, the issues, and the consequences that remain with us today.
