· With the new ‘Great Game’ being observed in Indo-Pacific region, and Eurasia having visible contestation across diverse realms, the lines between classic state-to-state wars and peace are getting blurred by grey zone conflicts. In a fermented national security environment, India strives to be economically, politically, and culturally sovereign, autonomous, and cohesive.
