Once a king called upon all of his wise men and asked them "Is there a mantra or suggestion which works in every situation, in every circumstance, in every place and in every time. In every joy, every Sorrow, every defeat and every victory? Only one answer for all my questions? Something, which can help me when none of you is available to advise me? Tell me is there any mantra?" All the wise men were puzzled by the King's question. They thought and thought. After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something, which appealed to all of them. They went to the king and gave him something written on paper, with a condition that the king was not to see it out of curiosity.

Soft Power. Joseph Nye is known as the father of the concept. He defines soft power as: “Power is the ability to affect others to obtain the outcomes you want. One can affect their behavior in three main ways: threats of coercion (“sticks”); inducements or payments (“carrots”) and attraction that makes others want what you want.

Nearly 4 decades ago. As a 21 plus, recently commissioned second lieutenant (2/Lt) I found myself posted to a field area in my first unit comprising Sikh troops. There was loads to be learnt - no formal syllabus - no appointed instructors - little in terms or guidelines - one was required to know just about everything - all by yesterday - multitasked to the hilt. I had no office. Most of the time was spent with the troops - training grounds, sports fields, firing ranges, cookhouses dining halls, equipment stores, living lines. Our troops my constant companions –- interactions with the officers (all seniors) was limited to a few minutes in a day - comprising highly formal exchanges (with me mostly listening). I found the troops good mentors guides - it was they who guided me in my daily functioning - regimental procedures history, sikhism, spoken punjabi (adjectives included), technical gunnery, man management, logistics procedures, accounting, disciplinary procedures - I could go...
