Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

More Than Just Another Wakeup Call

May 27, 2013 Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

This is not the time for political mudslinging. It is time for holistic reflection and action.

Tryst With Deceit?

Apr 23, 2012 Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Let's not get carried away. It's time to realistically look at how we should proceed with "solving" Siachen


Missing The Point

General V.K. Singh actually did take the best possible action. The fellow offering the bribe was a retired officer over whom Army has no jurisdiction. What is the defence minister's excuse?

The Battle Within

Mar 29, 2012 Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Instead of worrying about who leaked the Army Chief's letter to the PM, it is time to look at the contents and the issues it raised


And The Great Game Will Continue

Beyond 2014, as US troops prepare to leave —and Pakistan wants India out of —Afghanistan, the region is poised for yet another round of geo-strategic repositioning

16 March, 2012

What's The Problem?

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

If there have been human rights violations by Sri Lankan security forces, why should those responsible not be punished? And if there has been no violation, what is the fear?


15 March, 2012

Potpourri Kashmir

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Some take-aways from a round table meet organized by a think tank last week in Delhi on J&K


05 March, 2012

Interpreting Interceptors

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

That the Army Chief could even have considered deploying interceptors to monitor conversations of personalities in the age-row is yet another hallmark in foolishness.


17 February, 2012

The NCTC Imbroglio

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

The objections against the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) have merit, but our response to terrorism and insurgencies cannot afford to remain disjointed for too long


16 February, 2012

The General Deserves Justice

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Never mind the orchestrated media blitz, don't be swayed by the wind: just read the Supreme Court order. The date of birth issue is far from being closed. The ball is in the government's court.


14 February, 2012

New Face Of Terror

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

The broad daylight terror attack on an Israeli official's car in Delhi's high security area, not far away from Embassy of Israel and the Prime Minister's Race Course residence, puts the spotlight back on our internal security


10 February, 2012

Where Is Maldives Headed?

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Upholding of the Maldivian constitution and continued peace in this strategically located archipelago is definitely in India’s interest. And are we prepared for the worst case scenarios?


08 February, 2012

Who Is The Raja In MoD?

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

If the former telecom minister A. Raja is the scapegoat of the 2G Scam, who is going to be the scapegoat in Age Row conspiracy of General V.K. Singh?

Getting Particular

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Today's hearing of Supreme Court in the case of Gen V.K. Singh’s date of birth (DOB) is the first sign of government machinations getting exposed...


01 February, 2012

The Shikhandi Salvo

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

So what do we make of the latest reports of the ministry of defence ordering the Adjutant General to change the date of birth of Gen V.K. Singh to 10 May 1950 (from 1951), through an undated letter signed by a Deputy Secretary level officer?


25 January, 2012

Indian Army: Whose Personal Fiefdom?

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

Exposing ‘and punishing’ the conspirators and co-conspirators by the Supreme Court is now as important as giving a verdict on the DOB of General V.K. Singh.


17 January, 2012

Perpetuating Primitiveness

Lt Gen Prakash C. Katoch (Retd)

The façade of Jarawas not wanting to mingle is hogwash. Fact is they want to progress and develop but are denied the same while the Administration does not even cater to their hunger pangs.
