My new book “Maimed by the System” released: Purchase Information and Reports

My fourth book, “Maimed by the System” has been released by General VP Malik (Retd), former Chief of the Army Staff.

The book is a hardcover collection of real life accounts of defence personnel, military veterans, disabled soldiers and their kin who were wronged by the system but fought and successfully claimed their rights and dues. These are unique real stories of such individuals who had to put up difficult and protracted battles with the officialdom, something they were clearly unprepared for, to claim their basic rights post disability, post battle and many posthumously. Besides the stories, the book also contains some of my selected published works. The book is dedicated to India’s Constitutional Courts, especially the Delhi and the Punjab & Haryana High Courts for standing by the men and women in uniform. It is hope and triumph that the book embodies, not despair. Rather than evoke disdain for the system, the book should act as a lesson and a mirror for all of us towards a foundation of positivity and compassion.

The foreword has been penned by Mr Eugene Fidell, the First President of the National Institute of Military Justice of the United States of America.

The release ceremony was unlike the usual book releases and the humbling evening was rendered even more interesting with the informal conversation and interaction with guests and the media.

Part of the proceeds of this non-commercial project shall be used for the welfare of disabled soldiers and military widows.

You can support the book by buying it from Amazon India by clicking here. They are offering an exclusive deal and free delivery. They are also offering gift wrap facility for gifting the book. The purchase process on Amazon is simple and they are offering the 'Cash on Delivery' method also. 

The book has been published by Chandigarh based Shree Ram Law House, legal/law publishers established in 1991. Information for those who are unable to buy the book online and for bulk orders, and more on the contents of the book can be accessed from the exclusive website www.Maimed.info

A commendable job done by Major Navdeep Singh! For the last several years, he has been fighting to get justice for numerous aggrieved and hapless veterans, the disabled and widows.included. The book is an effective way of furthering their cause by seeking to sensitise the society and the establishment to their woes. Wishing him continued inspiration to keep up with his efforts!

I am really glad that I bought the book & more important read most of the the book in one sitting yesterday.It was very educative & made me realize that i should have read such a book before becoming CO ,while in service.
I have asked the present CO of my unit to buy the book so that he can be be better informed
I also need to share some thing about Maj Navdeep, which made me win two arbitration cases on my own.
When one of my clients cheated me of my dues in 2008,I had called up Maj Navdeep & wanted him to represent me (though it was impractical).How ever he guided me correctly & i hired a so called corporate lawyer.After an year or so i could make out the corporate lawyer is not taking any interest in the case,i terminated his services & fought on my won & won the case (unanimous verdict by the three honorable arbitrators) .I would like to dedicate this victory to Maj Navdeep
Subsequently i initiated another arbitration case against my builder for violating the sale agreement & again after 2 years of battle, won the case .
All this would not have been possible
with out the initial guidance from Maj Navdeep & buying the book is a very small way of showing it & this is a favor i am doing it to myself
Once again a big thanks to Maj Navdeep for the yeoman service to the defence community
