M.Phil Dissertation Details: My dissertation work entitled as “End of Cold War and Transformation of India's Nuclear Policy”. In this, I have analysed the shift in India nuclear policy after the end of the Cold War. It used the systemic and domestic factors in examining the shift in the Indian nuclear policy. The dissertation concluded that India nuclear policy changed after the Cold War from deliberate ambivalence to measured participation.

PhD Thesis:  PhD Thesis work entitled as “Conceptualising Nation and Power: A Study of Sangh Parivar’s National Security Discourses”. This study aims to analyse the historical evolution of the Sangh Parivar’s national security discourse based on two concepts: nation and power. It examined the discourses among the major religious, cultural and political wings of the Sangh Parivar on the two concepts. These concepts constitute the pillars upon which the discourse of Sangh Parivar is based. No significant work on the discourse of Sangh Parivar has been undertaken. This study aimed to fill the gap by focusing on the roots of the worldview as espoused by the Sangh Parivar.
