In this issue, Brig Kanwal assesses the government’s preparedness in the defence sector. He is a distinguished fellow from Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses and the former director of Centre for Land Warfare Studies, New Delhi. His insights are evidently valuable and indispensable for the readers, looking for a fair review of government’s performance on the national security front.The cover story is a profile of Shoaib Sultan Khan – a Magsaysay award winner from Pakistan, who is also an Indian hero! Through the leaders he created and institutions he built, he went on to support over 150 million individuals and 30-40 thousand households escape poverty in India and Pakistan.

 This issue will also give you a glimpse of the leadership persona of E. Sreedharan. A paradoxical mix of fierce resolve and compelling humility, Sreedharan transformed the way railway projects are perceived in India. We have tried to explain ‘how’. And then there is a story on the journey of Mir Ranjan Negi – the hockey coach, who helped India win gold medals in the 1998 Asian Games and the 2002 Commonwealth Games. A column on the Faustian dilemma of ‘being’ and ‘having’ and another one exploring the interplay between yoga and science.

 Such a range of diverse subjects. Hope, the issue gets you the worth of your time.

 Here you go!
