Efficiency of CAPFs suffering from ‘glass ceiling’ effect
All posts in the CAPFs being operational posts, the orientation of entire chain of command must be towards operations. Therefore, the argument for continued appointment of officers from other services in these forces can no longer be justified.

Animal support for border guarding
I have all along been a strong votary of use of technology to ease the hardship of troops. I rue the fact that in spite of my almost four decades of experience of border guarding this simple indigenous solution never occurred to me.

Leadership of security forces is failing nation to control Maoists
The April 3 Maoist attack on the security forces, in which 22 soldiers lost their lives, should be a wakeup call for the establishment to carry out an overhaul of the management policy of central armed police forces or the CAPFs.

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.

Lightweight border guarding
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.

Kargil War: Unrecognized contribution of BSF
26th July is celebrated as Kargil Vijay Diwas. However, circumstances that led to this Kargil war and brought two nuclear-armed neighbours to the precipice remain mired in mystery.

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.
