Taliban crisis | Indian Army never shunned responsibility like Afghan forces: Jay Kotak

Jay Kotak, the Associate Vice President at Kotak Mahindra Bank, took to Twitter to discuss the current volatile situation in Afghanistan after the Taliban take over and said: “Afghanistan proves that military competence is not just about billions of dollars of weapons and training -- but about culture, respect, and willingness to fight for something.”
