Till 1968 this remained my new home. The school equipped me with extraordinary diverse skills.My mother left behind a large library of books. On long school breaks, I devoured them with zeal.Both happenings instilled in me a streak of independence and analytical skills.My father's honesty and integrity left a deep impression on me.By the time I reached Class VII, I was determined to join the Indian Army.During graduation at Indore Christian College, I was fascinated with Political Science and Geopolitics.The President of India was pleased to grant me Commission in the Army in 1972. I joined the 69 Armoured Regiment and later transferred to raise 84 Armoured Regiment. I returned my Commission to the President with gratitude in 1977.Military training instilled in me extraordinary stand-alone capabilities.I am neither a formally trained publisher nor an editor. These skills were learnt on the streets of Delhi. I set up Lancer in 1979, the first dedicated military publishing house in India. Subsequently, I launched Indian Defence Review in 1986.I am the editor since 1998.
