New Delhi: Lieutenant General Kamal Davar, one of India’s leading military experts, says India has a right to a seat on the global high table as it confronts formidable challenges to its economic well-being and security.
In his new book ‘Securing India’s Rise: A Vision for the Future’, Lt General Kamal Davar talks about India’s need to synergise its genius and resources not only for its survival and sustenance but to be counted in the comity of nations as it deals with geopolitical stresses.
The book, published by Bloomsbury, will be released on 7 July at 7 pm on ‘Soft Cover’, ThePrint’s e-venue to launch select non-fiction books.
From issues ranging in economic management to national security to managing a foreign policy in a rapidly changing world, Davar offers a comprehensive assessment of the numerous challenges India faces and provides measures to overcome them with the help of some of India’s sharpest minds.
The book has views of 19 eminent Indians from diverse fields, who suggest measures to augment India’s Comprehensive National Power; the lessons from each, if implemented, will contribute to ensuring India’s inevitable rise.
The anthology is a must-read for people from different walks of life, from intellectuals and those in the establishment to citizens and the youth, and all those who believe that India’s rise has to be secured for itself and the good of the region and the world.
Having served in the military for 41 years and a veteran of the 1965 and 1971 operations, Lt General Kamal Davar is counted among India’s leading military experts.
He was appointed as the first director-general of India’s Defence Intelligence Agency.
After his retirement, Davar has written and spoken extensively on regional security and strategy and is an active participant in Track 2 diplomacy. Davar has earlier written ‘Tryst with Perfidy’, a well-received work on the Pakistani deep state.
He is currently the president of the Delhi Forum for Strategic Studies.
