Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 5-6 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available).

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Grit, Guts and Gallantry PB (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 181

Grit, Guts and Gallantry : Officers and Gentlemen of the Indian Army is a book that provides an insight into the Army life. Written by a former colonel of the Indian Army Colonel Mahip Chadha, the book breaks down various myths that people have about Army.

Summary Of The Book

Grit, Guts and Gallantry : Officers and Gentlemen of the Indian Army is an account of life in the National Defence Academy and the Indian Military Academy as experienced by an Army man. It is an insider’s account as the author/former colonel takes the reader through the journey of entering the NDA and coming out as an Army officer. Colonel Chadha presents an adulterated view of life in the Indian Army for those students who are on a threshold of their careers. He dispels the various myths that are associated with the Defence forces.

It has been seen that most of the Indian citizens are not aware of the Defence forces. They are unaware of the selection process, the hardships a NDA candidate undergoes, and even the rank structures. The patriotism of the Army men is restricted to the Republic Day parade or the slogans of ‘Jai Jawan’. Army comes into existence of a common man during a war or a warlike situation. Also, it has been observed that during the counseling sessions of students at an early age, they are not even given the career option of Defence services. Chadha figures out why the services are not given their proper due in Grit, Guts and Gallantry : Officers and Gentlemen of the Indian Army.
Colonel Chadha uses a conversational style and racy tone to provide all aspects of Army life and make the book more readable and interesting. He talks about the agonizing physical training and the intense hard work one has to undergo at NDA and IMA. The strict adherence to rules and regulations has been disclosed here, but the author has provided an adventurous touch to the book. The book acts as a guide for those who dream of a career in Indian Army and provides tales of sacrifice and bravery with a tint of fun.

As the name suggests, the book is a tribute to the Indian soldiers, who do not care even for their lives when it is about their country. It is a tribute to those people who are willing to sacrifice their lives without any expectation of a reward or recognition. Thus, colonel Chadha pens down a motivational book that is not at all preachy.

About Colonel Mahip Chadha

Colonel Mahip Chadha is a former colonel of the Indian Army and he served for the Second Battalion of the Third Gorkha Rifles.

Apart from Grit, Guts and Gallantry: Officers and Gentlemen of the Indian Army, colonel Chadha has also authored SOLJER SOLJER, which is his second book.

Born in a Sikh family, Colonel Mahip Chadha got his graduation in Bachelor of Arts. He served the Indian Army for 34 years and got his retirement in 2000. He worked for various different jobs after retirement and worked at the Helios Aviation as the President before his second retirement. He started his writing career in 2009 with his first book Grit, Guts and Gallantry: Officers and Gentlemen of the Indian Army.

A great book!

This book is one hell of a great book depicting life at two of India's most premier institutions, the NDA and the IMA! Both of them are the best of the best and make all the IIT's, IIM's and AIIMS and all their like look like puny things! It gives us a first-hand experience of his cadet life and his soldier life and what it takes to be a warrior par excellence! If I write more people will probably get an inkling about the book so I had say that you buy it!

Poignant story_Awesomeness in simple words..

Its been long since I read such an enjoying non-fiction work by an Indian author...
I myself could not give the NDA UPSC exam due to some petty age problems though my only aim in class 12 was to go to the NDA.. But fate played on its own terms and I fell into the same vicious circle of EEEs... :P
So it felt really good to go through some detailed first-hand experience of an Army officer.
Books like these are really rare given the exquisite subtle humour.. :)

BEEN THERE..DONE THAT..

After reading the book the first thing that came into my mind was that the dreams of mine and Colonel sir were same somehow..I have also pictured myself (since the day I have got my senses) as an army officer but...my journey to my dreams were not that easy as sir's..This book actually brought the whole picture in front of me that how life of an simple individual transforms when he makes the decision of his life..the book has a tone of humor which makes it interesting to read..so all those aspirants for the armed forces..GO FOR IT!!

Excellent account of the army life

An excellent account of the life in the army and what it takes to get into NDA. I always had a fascination and respect towards the armed forces and the life that they live while on the job and off the job. Colonel Mahip Singh Chadha's simple style of writing combined with a great sense of humour make this one hell of a great book to read. I loved every bit of this work and my respect for the men in armed forces has only multiplied. Highly recommended reading if one wants to take a journey through the NDA and life in the army.

A Window


For someone who regarded the Army as the only worthy profession but failed in 2 SSBs (back in 1990) and never got to wear the Olive Green, this book opened a window.

Army is a way of life and every other calling is "making a living". The honour of Command and the Camaraderie no other occupation can provide.

Thanks Colonel Sir, for the book. I'm deeply grateful
