About Me,

I’m a scholar doing post graduate research in facets and dimensions of  Military Power. I’ll be studying  the relevance of military power in these changing times.  My ultimate goal is to suggest a multivariate model to quantify the Military Power of sovereign states.

Your comments as well as response to polls on this page would serve as primary sources of information for my research.

Please feel free to post comments, give suggestions or recommend reference material on the last page.

I shall forever be deeply grateful and indebted to all the respondents.
