From Fatigues to Civvies goes beyond a biographical narrative and takes a hard look at events within the army and the country. Right from his early service he had a knack to find trouble or of trouble finding him. He treated these as opportunities of life. As a junior officer he learnt to identify truth and stand upto unjust orders. This early experience conditioned his responses in his later life. In these pages you see the traits of a soldier thinker and a man of conviction at times at odds with authority. In Nagaland and Manipur he redefined and executed a new counter insurgency strategy with success against all opposition. At the Military Operations Directorate he was involved in planning and execution of operation Meghdoot in Siachen and opposed army's involvement in Punjab and operation blue star. As the main author of exercise brass tacks he has tried to separate the myth of war from reality. In his reminiscences, he has covered a vast span of defence and security structures, need for a strategic culture and civil-military relations. Printed Pages: 472
