Human face of the Indian Armed Forces

- Col. Ranjit Singh


In Jammu and Kashmir and in the North East, the Indian Armed Forces have extended its mandate to rebuild the lives of people devastated by terrorism. Operation Sadbhavana, meaning Goodwill, launched in 1998, is a unique attempt to apply the healing touch to win the hearts and minds of people by promoting development activities focusing on their basic needs.
