  1. What is the use of paying TRIBUTES, when the WIDOWS OF THE MARTYRS are on STREETS for their legitimate right-OROP!!! SHAMEFULL for DM and COAS shamefull!!!

  2. A pat on the back, saluting the Amar Jawan Jyoti, a medal here or a speech there at REWARI or Kargil or farcial so called but never intended Man ki Baat over Radio are no substitutes for graceful acceptance of OROP -- --- you all thankless and shameless decision makers enjoying your subsidised Chicken Biryani while discussing ---- if at all --- the HS of ESM. SHAME ! SHAME! SHAME!

  3. Dear sir,
    The departed souls of our progenitors those who sacrificed their valuable lives in defending their mother land will not accept the tribute in term of wreath laying by the defense minister and chief of the army staff
