How money speaks more than medals

If you don't have power in a game you are masters of, the world will walk all over you, notes Shekhar Gupta.

One of Mother India's finest servants

Naresh Chandra was most certainly among the greatest patriots two generations of Indian strategists have seen, through the tenure of nine PMs, says Shekhar Gupta. The description we use most lazily -- and safely -- in a tribute to a prominent public figure on his passing away is 'patriot'. Lazy, because any fellow Indian must be presumed to be a patriot. And safe, because nobody is likely to question you. We are too polite to speak ill of the dead. The equation changes when the person is ...

The Chinese don't want to fight a war

'They know it can embarrass them, as this surely isn't 1962.' 'They also know the moment they fire the first shot, all insecure powers in their front-yard, Australia to Japan and all the way westwards to India, will be brought together overnight, not something the deputy superpower wants,' says Shekhar Gupta.

'A new doctrine now needs to be evolved for a new situation, and the army will do it.''You won't see more Kashmiris driven in front of army columns.''Nor will the army massacre hundreds, Dyer style,' says Shekhar Gupta. Brigadier General Reginald Dyer was British, but was an officer of the Indian Army. The 50 riflemen who opened fire at a peaceful Baisakhi gathering at Amritsar's Jallianwala Bagh, killing 396 and wounding more than a thousand, were Indian soldiers. Within 25 years, the same ...

'His essential doctrine was only the local police can fight terror.''"You can't fire at mobs throwing stones," he said, adding one has to think innovatively, even defensively, sometimes.'Shekhar Gupta remembers the uncoventional SuperCop. In his passing away, as in his life, Kanwar Pal Singh (K P S) Gill continues to challenge your learning and established notions.
