Ravi Rikhye

Ravi Rikhye has studied defense for 58-years and written, co-written, or edited about 30 books; several concerned India and he was refused permission to publish. Each of the books is more boring than the previous. His latest, “An analysis of India’s ability to fight a 2-front war” (Amazon Kindle) is 184,000 words long and has sold five copies in three weeks. For him, that’s a best-seller. Ravi is also a perpetual student, though he took his first bachelors only in 1994. He is currently doing a seventh masters, in Intelligence Management. Two PhD theses are held up because he hasn’t been able to pay fees.
