Goenka’s book is an important contribution to the almost non-existent literature on India’s threats from within. Goenka’s expose needs to be viewed comprehensively in connection with the hybrid threat posed by India’s north-western neighbour. The actions of the “enemies within” are the root causes of our national security threats, to which the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) only provides a supporting infrastructure. Our security forces have done a commendable job in targeting this sustaining factor. But the root cause can be addressed only by the Indian voter. For this, it is important that this book is read.
Former Spy chief Vikram Sood, in his book, The Ultimate Goal dissects and uncovers the art and craft of building narratives. He is seemingly well versed with the crafty business of narratives being done, undone and rarely course corrected. The book delves mostly on the narratives that were built in the West or by agencies controlled by the West or built elsewhere to suit the Western perceptions to meet the ultimate goal of global dominance.
