Remembering RN Kao—The Institution-Builder

NEW DELHI: He wasn’t the classical spy who would go behind enemy lines but knew how to get the job done. Many would know RN Kao as the man who founded R&AW, India’s external intelligence agency, but that’s just one of the achievements of the man who was shy and hated the glare of publicity. In this episode of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale talks about the spymaster who not only built institutions but also played a key role in strategising the lead-up to the 1971 war and the merger of Sikkim with India.
