Maj Gen Dhruv C Katoch Live with Madhu Kishwar
There is an American saying:
Don't try fixing what ain't broken!
Despite all efforts by the Modi government to give a positive spin to the Agnipath Scheme for recruitment into the Indian Army, a whole array of retired army generals with a respect-worthy track record as well as well informed security experts have sounded alarm bells and warned the Government that this scheme has the potentials to destroy the one and only well functioning in the country.
In this program, Maj Gen Dhruv C Katoch will explain the reasons for his reservations against the controversial Agnipath Recruitment Scheme
An alumnus of Sherwood College, Nainital, and the National Defence Academy, Major General Dhruv C. Katoch was commissioned in the DOGRA Regiment on 31 March, 1972. The general officer is a graduate of the Defence Services Staff College, Wellington and the Higher Command Course, Mhow.
He has vast experience in sub conventional conflict, having taken part in IPKF operations in Sri Lanka, and also operations against terrorists and insurgents in J&K and various states of North East India. He was commended by the chief of army staff for operations against militants in Sri Lanka and was awarded the Sena medal while in command of his battalion in active operations on the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

Manushi Trust was instituted in 1979 to provide the legal and organizational base for publishing Manushi – A Journal about Women & Society which was founded in 1978. Apart from publishing the journal ( whose print edition was discontinued in 2008 when we faced murderous attacks and endless harassment due to our work for street vendors), Manushi Trust has been involved in a whole range of activist interventions.

From its very inception, Manushi founder & Managing Trustee, Madhu Kishwar took a policy decision not to accept foreign funding or government grants in order to retain the independence and autonomy of the organization.
Aims & Objectives: MANUSHI has endeavoured to contribute towards finding effective solutions for the economic, political, social and civilizational challenges confronting India today through patient study, a non-partisan approach, live interaction with the people concerned, and culturally sensitive, informed activism. MANUSHI seeks out practical and creative ideas to meet the challenges of our times and avoids falling into the trap of deadening ideologies.
MANUSHI is neither Left-Wing Nor Right-Wing. We are Truth Wingers.
- Social Harmony, Not Social Fragmentation;
- Religious Freedom, Not Religious Tyranny;
- Equity, Not Special Rights;
- Legitimate Concerns of All, Illegitimate Demands of None;
- Cultural Freedom, Not Cultural Slavery to Alien Norms;
- Community Bonding, Not Narcissistic Individualism;
- Citizenship Rights, Not Communal Tyranny in the Name of Minority Rights;
- Our Right to Historical Truth, Not Fake Narratives to Protect Enemies of Bharat;
- The right to reclaim the vandalized heritage of Bharatvarsh & assert its civilizational integrity in all domains: social, political, educational, cultural, and dharmic.
Manushi Trust also publishes books, makes documentary films and undertakes a whole range of activities, including legal aid and PIL work, through the modest resources generated by the sales and subscriptions of our publications.
Manushi Founder, Madhu Kishwar describes her work as "labour of love" and has ensured that her lifelong commitment to Resurgent Bharat is one of giving, not of taking. She has never accepted any monetary fee on account of her work for Manushi. Instead, she has continuously sustained Manushi from her own earnings as a professor and writer.
Manushi has managed to stay alive on a shoe-string budget for over four decades on the strength of dedicated volunteers that came from different parts of India as well as abroad. Though we have a small team of paid staff, we welcome volunteers and interns.
