Have known Ram since 1979 and also worked alongside him in the intense J&K (Kupwara) eco-system in late 90s’. A big man with a big heart, Ram is a man endowed with raw courage and rustic intelligence. A fearless and thrill loving person, he lives by his convictions and is as forthright as one possibly can be. His acumen for intelligence flourished once he got the opportunity within Services and now he is building a comprehensive, robust and futuristic Intelligence Organisation…brick by brick. Wishing him success in being able to take the Intelligence Industry offerings to another level.
