The book follows the adventures of Jay an army brat as he finishes his final term in the IMA (Indian Military Academy) and enters life as a young infantry officer. His life and adventures may seem unbelievable to the average civilian but pretty much par for the course for any youngster in the army. Young Jay is still on his quest to find love, respect and fun, not necessarily in that order. The story continues from his previous adventures, as a young kid from a military base to the IMA, Blue Jeans to Olive Greens. This book, Olive Greens (the colour of Indian Army uniform) to Disruptive Patterns (the official description of the combat dress camouflage design) is an enlightening, humorous read, written in a light hearted tone, belying the hardships and dangers in the army. It’s a roller coaster ride from the academy to a remote cantonment in ‘Peace’ to a ‘field’ or forward area in the mountains and the quirky characters he meets along the way. All of which make a highly interesting read and a glimpse into a world not very well known to ‘outsiders’.
