He has been unravelling the emerging contours of conflict from Indo-Myanmar borders to Af-Pak borders and has developed a pan-Himalayan perspective towards geopolitics of the Himalayas. In this paper, he examines the importance of Siachen glacier for Indian defence and provides a critique against the voices for demilitarization being espoused by a section of South Asian intelligentsia.
