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.
