Defining what constitutes national security is a herculean task in any part of the world, and in case of India; it is much more complex due to its inherent values of multiculturalism, different schools of thought and differing perspectives on any issue of national importance. This essentially problematizes the very effort of trying to examine India‟s national security as it may lead to the perception of considering it as vague and even non-explainable phenomenon. The other major problem emanates from the reasoning of what theories should be used to analyse. There are prerequisites to make any analysis requires a readily available document on India‟s national security in terms of its objectives and strategy. There exists nothing of that sort and that makes this research more complicated. The way to analyse the topic is to observe and analyse India‟s behavior pattern over a period of time through the prism of different academicians and their interpretations and arrive at some of the conclusions. The concern for the security of a nation is undoubtedly as old as the nation state itself.
