Story of BSF’s key role, valour and sacrifices in 1971 India-Pakistan war
The contributions of BSF, still in its infancy in 1971, did not find any recognition during the celebrations of the 49th anniversary of resounding victory of India over Pakistan in the Liberation War of Bangladesh. Here is the little-known story of how the BSF played a critical role in the 1971 war.

Border guarding is much more than merely detecting tunnels
The recent detection of tunnel in Samba area of India-Pakistan border has generated a lot of brouhaha, and allegations of laxity and/or incompetence on part of Border Security Force are being levelled thick and fast. This is not a perfect world and every organization achieves some successes and faces failures too.

The government has been going wrong in appointing the heads of critical central armed police forces, like the BSF. Sometimes, these part-time leaders of the forces have done more harm than good to the organizations.

India’s border guarding must be proactive
The adversary is continuously evolving its tactics in order to outmanoeuvre the border-guarding forces. The leadership therefore has to be mentally mobile and have deep insight of the prevailing security environment along the borders to face up to these challenges.

IPS officers vs CAPF officers: Unseemly tug of war
The efforts of Indian Police Service to retain their hegemony over the senior posts in central armed police forces is like the events leading to the epic battle of Mahabharata where the mighty Kauravas employ all tricks of trade to deprive the Pandavas of their rightful dues.
