Two Sides of a Coin

"All men who dedicate their lives for a cause greater than themselves are equally noble. At the peak of militancy, young dreams of an insurgent and an army officer collide, both equally convinced of the righteousness of their missions. Amidst spiralling violence, as conflicts become personal, they discover, they are, but puppets in the greater scheme of things. "


Jay Joshi joined the National Defence Academy, Pune at the age of 17. He was commissioned as a Lieutenant in 2015 to the infantry, as part of a unit serving in counter-insurgency in Jammu. He is currently serving as a Captain at his first High Altitude tenure at the Siachen Glacier.

Educated at Mumbai, US and Gujarat, Jay has written his first book, titled Two Sides of a Coin, inspired by his personal experiences as a soldier and the perceptions of the sense of purpose felt by the insurgents.
