Wars have their own logic. There is always one side that wins and another that loses the war. Everyone can’t win at the same time. Even in an individual context, no one can win all the wars; you may win some wars… but lose some others. Winning and losing is all part of life. This is the greatest lesson to be learnt from the life of Lt Gen (Retd) JFR Jacob. He won some but lost many battles in life.
