    While agreeing to the sentiments expressed in the article, i would also like to add that time tested war machinery _ The Indian Army- is made to die a slow but a sure professional death .Working against politically created difficult situations, the young leaders are at loss when they find them selves working in deviation to the laid down procedures while dealing with CI operations specially with regards ‘minimum Forces’ concept.
    Wherein do we have so much of avoidable Human Rights issues for the terrorists or their active sympathisers always willing to inflict physical casualties on the forces operating in the affected areas.Incidentally the issue of Human Rights of the man in uniform is often conveniently over looked.
    Lastly good initiative by ‘Bharat Shakti’
