    Compliance Made Simple

    Compliance, the biggest challenge to a medical practice today, can also be its greatest opportunity. It can be the biggest danger and also the most significant firewall of protection. The new provider coming out of school does not have the knowledge included in this book. Many providers who have been in business for years don’t realize the shark-infested waters they swim in. Compliance Made Simple was written as a compendium of those things that might not ever occur to a medical provider at any level who is either going into practice with a group or attempting to go it solo.

  • MRA Made Simple

    MRA Made Simple

    Whether you are a doctor or a mid-level provider of medical care in the managed care arena, whether you have experience with managed care or are new to it, Medicare Risk Adjustment is a funding system and a critical patient risk identifier to your success both today and for the future. There is a common perception that Medicare Risk Adjustment (MRA) is all about the money. Is it? It always does come down to the money, but the managed-care MRA model is vastly different from the Fee for Service (FFS) model; the reasons that it is about the money are also different. The MRA model creates an interesting and significantly satisfying outcome for those who understand the system’s whys and wherefores.

  • Once Upon A Time in RIMC

    Once Upon A Time in RIMC

    Boys of RIMC never really grow up and happily, the spirit of adventure and mischief lives on, even after many winters have passed. “Fatty and Kajla were to procure the digging implements surreptitiously. Tota, Soli, and Tinda were to help spread the mud! They were to make holes in their pockets, fill them with mud and go for walks all along the track from Ranjit Section to the mandir, spreading the mud so no one would suspect that we had been digging the ‘Shoe’. HS Vaid, the ‘giraffe’, was to stand as a watch tower and warn us of any approaching threat, by making sounds like the confounded owl that used to inquisitively follow us during our night-time mischievous adventures!” For nearly a century, Rimcollians have done the three Services proud, and the civvy street too. Known for their camaraderie and spirit of never accepting defeat or yielding to any adversary, whether in the battlefield or the playground, Brig Jasbir’s humorous book brings alive how mischevious teenagers are forged into soldiers. He studied in RIMC from mid-1962 to 1966. Thereafter, he did his training in NDA Kharakvasla and IMA Dehradun, where he was commissioned in 4 Kumaon.

  • The Fighting Fourth

    The Fighting Fourth

    “You know, Jasbir, I think we are the only father-son duo in the unit’s history to have been both decorated for gallantry! Also, there is so much of the unit’s history that needs to be properly probed and recorded. It is your time now, and you must do it.”

    ‘Fighting Fourth’ or 4th Battalion, The Kumaon Regiment (4 Kumaon), raised in 1788, has fought with distinction and etched its name in the annals of Indian military history with honour and pride. From fighting the Pindaris to quelling the Boxer Rebellion in Hong Kong, the battalion saw extensive action in both the World Wars and the Indo-Pak war of 1947–48, where the gallant actions of the unit saved Kashmir Valley for the Indian Union and changed the course of history in the region. Major Somnath Sharma was posthumously awarded India’s first Param Vir Chakra, the highest award for gallantry, while Brigadier Pritam Singh emerged as the Saviour of Poonch. The unit was awarded Battle Honour ‘Srinagar’ and 57 awards for bravery, including one Param Vir Chakra, three Maha Vir Chakras, 13 Vir Chakras, one Bar to Vir Chakra and other awards. In the Indo–Pak War 1965, the battalion was awarded Battle Honour ‘Sanjoi–Mirpur’, while in the 1971 operations, it was awarded Battle Honour ‘Shamshernagar’, along with three Vir Ckakras, one SM and other awards. In this book, Brigadier Jasbir presents an intimate, personal account of the glorious history of this fine battalion that has contributed no less than two Chiefs of Staff of the Indian Army and is among the most highly-decorated ones.

    Brigadier Jasbir Singh, SM, is a Rimcollian who studied at RIMC from 1962 to 1966. Thereafter, he underwent training at NDA Khadakwasla, followed by IMA Dehradun, where he was commissioned in the 4th Battalion, The Kumaon Regiment, or 4 Kumaon (Fighting Fourth). He was wounded during operations behind enemy lines in East Pakistan in the 1971 war and decorated twice for gallantry during operations.

    War Despatches 1971

    This book is a coming together of the then-young officers of the Indian Armed Forces who fought the war with grit and courage in the face of adversity. This is not just a gathering of facts but a lucid retelling of their triumphs, their many horrors, their challenges and the many battles they fought and won within and outside to put India first. A young officer who was taken prisoner, a Naval captain who left home days before his wedding, the fond memory of a martyred Lance Naik who threw himself before the enemy in order to help win a bigger battle, fifty years later, Brig B.S. Mehta brings to you essays by 29 brave Indian soldiers of the Eastern and Western Sector on what it meant to be young and in the line of fire. Each narrative is a tell-all depiction of valour, humour and horror, all of which helped them put India first.
