  1. Impossible is being tried with hope to achieve. For fauj, provided national will, nothing is impossible. To my gorkha and Nepali friends- aayo re gorkhali. We together shall challenge the life

  2. Dear sir,

    I am 63 years old, if government allows me I can go to earth quake affected area and give my services to the grief stricken Gurkhas brothers and I can takepart in the relief and rescue work for the cause of man kind.

  3. Please Forget OROP, as per my view OROP is not going to implement in our Generation as Bureaucrat Lobbies are played like that so I feel ashamed on my self as In India it is happening if it is happened any another Country the Bureaucrat firstly goes to jail because of non welfare mentality to their Defence Forces. I hate Indian Bureaucrats forever. I also wish to say that in future I will not visit any polling booth either for voting to Assembly Election or to Main Election. Our Foreign Prime Minister is always out from India and could not see the real problems of Ex Serviceman and their families . I also predict that if OROP is planned to implement by the Government then it may be happened long back but they do not want to implement,. Wait for 2019. I assure that next Election NDA Government will ruined like anything . We have to wait for another 1460 days. I am counting that de-day Very very bad, very very shameful. At present Kissan and Jawans has no values at all. During Earth Quake, Flooding, Terrorist Attack, War then only remembered for Jawans thereafter forget and Officers, Bureaucrats is taking advantages. Jawans work like anything but fruits to Officers and Bureaucrats,
