* An aggressive China is repeatedly intruding into Indian territories and its troops are setting up camps in areas that extend beyond the "line of actual control" (LAC) that China itself unilaterally drew when it defeated India in the 1962 Chinese-initiated border war. Chinese army has been active in the mountainous borderlands with India, trying to alter the LAC bit by bit. China is seeking to exploit India's political disarray to alter the reality on the ground. Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines have also got tensions with China thanks to China's increasing territorial ambitions. In these circumstances, an expert analysis on the border dispute, geographical aggression by China and the security dynamics in India-China relations would help in raising awareness about the imperatives of safeguarding national security.

* Sri K Padmanabhaiah was awarded Padma Bhushan by the President of India in 2008 for outstanding contributions to the Nation in the field of Civil service. As Union Home Secretary he played an extremely crucial role in reviving the political process in Jammu & Kashmir State during 1994-1997, and in holding the very first elections in the insurgency ridden State after a gap of nine years. His work received nation-wide recognition, and he was honored with the Shiromani Award for National Development and Integration (1996) and the Priyadarshini Award for outstanding Public Service (1996). After retirement in 1997 he was appointed the GoI Representative for Naga Peace talks. With his patience & perseverance, he successfully persuaded the Naga rebel leadership who had been based abroad for decades, to come back to India, move away from their rigid stand of sovereignty, and continue the ceasefire which ultimately led to peace in Nagaland and Naga-inhabited areas of the North East during the last over twelve years. His performance as Municipal Commissioner, Greater Bombay (1990-91) received wide acclaim from the press and the public, and he was feted with the prestigious Giants International's Award for excellence in Civic Administration (1991).
