By Kazi Anwarul Masud

Centrality of a nation in its region or beyond depends on the insecurity of adjoining nations from aggression or threat of destabilization by adversaries.

Mr. B. Raman Passes Away

Paper No. 5512                                       Dated 17-Jun-2013

Mr. B. Raman one of the main contributors to SAAG passed away last evening.  His demise is a loss not only to me personally and the South Asia Analysis Group, but also to the intelligence community as well.

When I planned to have a “virtual think tank” way back in 1998 ( practically unknown those days), I approached Raman who was my colleague earlier to contribute papers and he readily agreed to do so.  He would not accept any compensation either.
