    About The Speaker

    Nearly four decades of service with Indian Army afforded the veteran hands on experience of command in diverse operationally active areas. He had hands on experience in dealing with security challenges that deepened his understanding of the nuances of employing various organs of the State in pursuit of national objectives. Experiences with security establishments of Russia and Seven Central Asian Republics during a stint with EURASIA Division of Ministry of External Affairs gave an insight into complexity of international relations and utility of military diplomacy. Exposure to the procurement and equipment management cycles, production agencies, quality assurance organisation and financial management enriched his understanding of immense challenges in these fields.

    Post retirement, made forays into the academic world as Director Strategic Plans of a University. He was the founding Chairperson of a ‘Not for profit organisation’ to empower youth in Chattisgarh. Actively contributes to the discourse on ‘National Security’, ‘Smart & Safe cities’, ‘Smart Borders’ and ‘Skilling’. He is a Distinguished Fellow with Centre for Joint Warfare Studies (CENJOWS).
