Nitin nothing can be more nearer to the truth as brought out clearly in ur article. The article is very thorough and dispassionately brings out all that has been done by Mr Parrikar in his short but qualitative tenure.

Very good article. The standards he set in MOD will have to be followed. Hope that the next Raksha Mantri is equal to the task.

I’m sure Nitin, you are doing great justice to all your new avataar as an author and a trainer, both are impossible without being a good researcher. Looking forward to many such articles from you. Congratulations and good luck

This is a seriously good article, well written and to the point bringing out what ails the MoD and what Mr. Parrikar did to make things better. Completely agree that it will be a hard act to follow.

Higher defence management and restructuring MoD to integrate much better with service HQs is a pressing need as is urgently filling critical gaps in the IN and IAF.

Making MoD fleet of foot is perhaps a pipe dream but we should surely strive towards that goal.
