Most of the discourses on India's security, for a long time have begun with the phrase 'in the post-cold war era and then there was a major event that shook the world and changed the academic discourses on security to 'after 9/ I 1' dramatically. Needless to say, this is seen regularly even now as most of the asymmetric threats emerge from the violent non-state actors across the spectrum, who have redefined the concept of security to a large extent. The new millennium in all possible ways is likely to sustain more transformational, innovative and challenging trends than any other century in the past as there are no signs of wars among states. Though the concept of states fighting each other is slowly becoming irrelevant yet taggeringly the states are in arms race and preponderance of power remains the aim of several nations. The larger threat animatedly threatening the nations and keeping them it on tenterhooks is the transnational form of terrorism. This is in a way an intricate challenge for the states as the preparation to deal with the enemy is two-fold: adversarial state/s and violent non-state actors.
