    Defending India in the face of multifarious insecurities that it faces is no mean feat. It is surrounded by hostile neighbours with nuclear capabilities and a strategic environment which is continuously in flux. With five major wars, protracted sub-conventional wars and intermittent eruption of localised conflicts, India has dealt with a grim security scenario since independence and continues to deal with it on a daily basis even today. This at the backdrop of a vibrant democracy which also means a continuous struggle of getting to consensus at a political spectrum which is extraordinarily diverse and also confrontational. How has India managed to do it? What have been the key strategic decisions that impacted defence and security apparatus in the country? What have been the key inflections points in India’s Defence and Security Policy making? What more needs to be done to face a new generation of warfare and conflicts? This volume attempts to contemplate these questions and more.
