BOOK: 'The Eye Of The Predator' Released

Congratulations to my friend and colleague Abhisar Sharma of Aaj Tak on the release of his first book The Eye Of The Predator, a fictionalised account of how American Predator drones finally managed to kill Tehreek-e-Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud. All the very best to Abhisar, who is already working on his next book. A tiny sidenote: Abhisar has been kind enough to acknowledge me in his book for "explaining in simple terms how a drone works". :) Here's the video promo of his book:

The book can be ordered online here.

If the map is wrong the Author would stand to be prosecuted under the Criminal Amendment Amending Act., as an act to wage war against the country.

Shiv, with all due respect to Abhisaar's effort, if he really could not understand the working of drones without asking you, then..... the map in the video is explained.

I mean, look how Wikipedia/Google makes many of your commentators experts on esoteric topics like military strategy and nautical vocabulary.. and so Abhisar too could have mastered the concepts behind drones na...

- in jest.
