Indian Army’s record has many parallels with that of the Indian cricket team; one unmitigated disaster (1962), one unqualified success (1971), two stalemates (1948 and 1965), a cataclysmic foreign policy blunder (IPKF in Sri Lanka) and a pyrrhic PR victory in Kargil (1999).
It is with a sense of disbelief that one hears the Indian minister of state for defence, sitting in his cozy air-conditioned seminar room, pontificating that ‘it is unbecoming’ of former soldiers to protest against the treatment meted out to them by the government.
The fact that the Indian armed services do not go public with their grievances does not mean that they do not have any concerns and the fact that they have been forced to come to the streets should make the minister and his government acknowledge how desperate the situation might be.

 Indian army confesses to over-estimating N-prowess -DAWN - Top Stories; 23 February, 2005
NEW DELHI, Feb 22: The Indian army had falsely believed that its new found nuclear prowess would guarantee perpetual peace with Pakistan, the army's newly released secret assessment of the Kargil fiasco says, according to excerpts published in the Outlook magazine on Monday.
There was an "interim government" in India, which, according to the assessment, emboldened the Pakistani army hierarchy to assume that it would be "indecisive" and not be in a position to tackle with the exigency.
Among the key conclusions it draws from the experience in Kargil, the army top brass recognised that in future there would be "short wars", that the army needed the "immediate ability to go to war" and it would be fought in the "backdrop of terrorism" as well under the cloud of an "overt nuclear threat".

In India, however, a wall seems to have emerged between the army and the bureaucratic-political elites whose children are no longer joining the army (see chart) and whose daughters, it is widely believed, no longer prefer grooms from the armed forces.
The changing face of the army today may reflect broader social trends in the country, but its lowered self-esteem and status have profound negative implications, the least of which is its ability to safeguard the country's security.
