    The Kaoboys of R&AW: Down Memory Lane chronicles the author’s experiences in one of the most discrete and elite departments of the Indian intelligence.


    Summary

    RAW is the primary external intelligence agency of India, and the book deals with the different aspects of its functioning. This book is the first attempt of this kind by a retired Indian RAW agent, who served in the organization for 26 years since its inception. The book takes the reader on a journey of the modern history of india including the 71 war, the insurgency in Northeast, the Emergency, and the war of Afghanistan. The book provides great insight into the working of the Research and Analysis Wing.

    Every Politically Inclined Intellectual should read it !!!

    This book is a treasure trove of information related to India and its Foreign Policy in which RAW played a very significant role. Infact, we as Indians have to be thankful to RAW (and Indira Gandhi) for the image of India which it projects to the world today. Though others have taken credit for it.

    Author has written the book in the most unbiased way possible; though he did not refrain from sharing his views wherever he wanted to. But the credit goes to him in ensuring that he portrays the i...

    The Kaoboys of Raw

    Good one but not excellent.
    The author seems to be loyal more to Gandhi family than anything else!
    His non-stop praise for IG and RG proves this.

    This book has been wonderfully compiled. Writer is having excellent knowledge of intelligence craft. His deep insight about Indian intelligence apparatus is heart-warming.

    Must Buy

    Excellent Book. There is more than what meets the eye. Aptly justified. Many incidents that I was aware of, reasons for those happening, referring to the book is nothing short of revelations. Morarji Desai witch hunting Indra and how government of the day agreed to pay 3% of total soft loan back to the Iranian broker. Appointment to Director Intelligence bureau gets cancelled as the person refused to meet Sanjay Gandhi etc. Every page has information which makes one sit up read again. Impor...

    This is the only authority book on R&AW so far

    This is the only authority book on R&AW so far. Written by none other than a former employee himself and that too by one who has directy worked with founding fathers of R&AW. It is must read for any true patrriot of India. After reading this book, one feels elevated about India and it's capabilities.
    No, Indian should feel sad about India's future, becuase of current turmoil in security situation in the country. This book answers how capable India is to take on these challenges.
