Blast From The Past: Glorious Chapters Of Indian Intelligence

NEW DELHI: As a nation, it’s a constant eerie feeling if you share a border with an adversary, a scheming one at that. India knows it all too well, having Pakistan as its immediate western neighbour. There have been brazen attempts by the Pakistanis before at intrusion and the like but each of those misadventures has either been thwarted or given befitting responses by India. So what prepares the country for those tough situations? A peek into the enemy’s mind to pre-empt its motives. Here, the Intelligence agencies come in handy. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say. In this edition of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale lists some scoops by Indian intelligence.
