My intention was (to kill Rajiv Gandhi) that because of the damage he had caused to our country.

As a human being I had nothing against the India Premier, but it was against what he did and his opportunistic policies to support the LTTE

I like Modi..I am happy he is visiting the country. He is a good man. But he should not interfere in our internal affairs. He should respect our territorial integrity.

He (Rahul Gandhi) will become PM, but in the elections after the next one.

Two of my predictions have come true. The third is waiting.

Pakistan is isolated within SAARC, as three members of the regional group have accused it of sponsoring terrorism. Afghanistan, Bangladesh and India have accused Islamabad of sponsoring terrorism that ISI continues to generate, irrespective of the condition of the bilateral ties with India. Such attacks take place irrespective of the ties being temporarily good or continuously bad. A response therefore has to be forcefully enunciated

We have already recognised the suffering of the Baloch people which has sent out a message about our strategy

When Aung San Suu Kyi emerged victorious in national elections in Myanmar, there were widespread expectations that given her iconic image in the west, her Government would receive substantial economic assistance from the US and the European Union. Suu Kyi had two priorities on assuming office.

Much has changed in the last three decades in China. It is now an economic powerhouse with a GDP five times that of India and defence spending six times higher. It has impressive defence production facilities and armed forces with huge firepower. But this economic rise has also led to China discarding Deng’s prescription of: “Hide our capabilities and bide our time.”

After waiting anxiously for six months to learn how the Trump administration would deal with Afghanistan, Pakistan was rudely shaken when President Donald Trump virtually read out the riot act to the generals in Rawalpindi and the politicians in Islamabad.

The US and its Nato allies have deep differences with Russia, China, Pakistan and Iran, on the way forward for restoring peace in Afghanistan. India and Afghanistan’s Central Asian neighbours regard the role of the Taliban and its ISI mentors with deep suspicion and misgivings.

In the meantime, delays in moving ahead on Chahbahar port must be addressed at the highest level. Modi has shown considerable skill in carrying out a delicate diplomatic balancing act in the Gulf and West Asia by developing good relations with all the major players — Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iran and Egypt. These skills will be tested while dealing with the emerging scenario in our western neighbourhood.

China has got accustomed to violating India’s territorial integrity in Jammu & Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh. It transgresses international norms by supplying Pakistan with know how and designs of nuclear weapons and missiles. Its provocative behaviour includes protests over visits by Indian dignitaries to Arunachal.

I have come a full circle since joining the service in August, 1988 and being removed, also in the same month. It's not that I didn't expect this, but the way this entire charade was created is disgusting.

I did not buckle under their pressure, I did not compromise anywhere in this entire episode. This was the battle of my choosing and I fought despite knowing that it was an absolutely unequal battle where I was destined to lose. But I fought for the principles and a cause.
