An indepth analysis of the chinese psyche and india’s counter by a most distinguished general of the indian army
Rajan Kochhar is a former general of the Indian Army who is known to be an astute professional and a thinker. His articles published in the Economic Times Government and a host of other journals have made interesting reading. His latest book, “Breaking the Chinese Myth” is an extra ordinary piece of writing on current geo-political issues with reference to our belligerent neighbour China and the need for modernisation of our armed forces. It is a firsthand account of a soldier who has watched the developments in our neighbourhood in the recent past and is extremely relevant to the present times. The book makes a fascinating reading and will add to the learning curve to those who love their country.
A detailed review of the book will soon follow.
“Breaking the Chinese Myth by Major General Rajan Kochhar, VSM infuses a sense of secure future FOR OUR NATION. Counting the strengths and weaknesses the author weaves a strategy that visualises India at 100 years of independence, a country commanding international respect and dignity and also equipped with strong deterrent capability to any misadventure by its neighbours. Coming from a celebrated soldier it is both credible and reassuring. A must read for all who care for India.”

Maj Gen Kochhar’s book comes at an opportune time when India is reviewing the complete nature of its bi-lateral ties with China. The author has clearly outlined the future threat perceptions and the current state of Indian military to deal with this challenge. He has also cogently laid down the steps that India needs to take in evolving a comprehensive defence strategy and achieving success in the “Make in India” initiative. A commendable work.

The analytical approach and engaging flow of the book is inspiring and makes it a good read for students of International Relations and Military Strategy. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and find it a great combine of being interesting as also informative. Hence, I strongly advocate that it be read by China watchers.
