A Final Tribute to Field Marshall

In other incident When (then Prime Minister) Mrs (Indira) Gandhi asked him if he was going to take over the country, he told her are you asking for my resignation on grounds of mental instability? Here’s my resignation.

I knew Mrs.Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, and Mrs.Sonia Gandhi India' s Darling ) personally, I am totally shocked of stupid behavior of 10,Janpath , PM, President and 2 stupid chief of staff,Defence Minister and IAS Babu's What else can you expect from Useless Pathetic Alliance (UPA) I am even shocked at bad attitude of CM's and Governors. Krishna Menon was first class idiot, person with no class.Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw was a part of our life... A part of growing up and tales from then. May his soul rest in peace and may we all learn from him what we can do for our nation. I still cannot get over shock of Babu's attitude of our idiot Defense Minister who is busy talking bribes and Parsi fellow chief who could not say Good Bye to a colleague. What a shame and insult to a Nation.  I have checked through intelligence all the calenders were empty and availability of Private VIP aircrafts if they wanted to say Good Bye to Field Marshall.

Till yesterday Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw was the oldest living Field Marshal in the world.I first met Sam Manekshaw when I young at Oberoi Hotel in New Delhi and on several occasions in Bangalore

Let me share with you few stories, He was fearless. When he was a major with the Sikh company in Burma, they had a promotion meeting for the appointment of lance naik to naik.

He didn’t approve of one name because he said he was a rascal. That man sent word to Sam saying, ‘I would kill you.’ So Sam Manekshaw told his senior subedar — ‘Unko march karna hai’.

He was marched before Sam and he asked him — ‘You are going to kill me? Here’s my pistol, now come on shoot me.’ That man was so taken aback that he marched out meekly. Sam appointed him as batman. That was the sort of man he was.

In other incident When (then Prime Minister) Mrs (Indira) Gandhi asked him if he was going to take over the country, he told her are you asking for my resignation on grounds of mental instability? Here’s my resignation.

A nation that can't honor its heroes can't produce them either. A Bharat Ratna can’t be given to persons like Field Marshal Manekshaw. In fact till this date no soldier has been given the highest award though they won four wars for us. We hardly see a politician whose child is serving in the forces. If you know some, kindly pass on the information to me.

Field Marshal Sam Bahadur gets a salute from Bangladesh. Indians did not pay his salary for 30 years, no house or benefits. I am ashamed to be called Indian.Field Marshal K M Kariappa, Lt General Thakur Nathu Singh, General K S Thimayya, Lt. General S P P Thorat, Lt. General Sagat Singh, Lt. General P S Bhagat, Lt. General R N Batra ... and many others. Each of them brought special virtue to the famed Indian Armed Forces. But the contribution made by Field Marshal Sam ‘Bahadur’ Manekshaw is rated differently only because of the tremendous passion and dignity with which he approached soldiering. He was not only a great General but a very popular one because his men were everything to him. One wonders if such a soldier would be born ever again!

The people ruling the nation today are infested with a slavish mentality – taking orders sheepishly and trying to preserve their wealth and position. History will do justice. It’s not wealth and power, but grit and spine that matters ultimately. I blame the Defense Minister who is useless character.I request Government of India to publish postage stamp in his honor and Start a "Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw Institute of Strategic Defense Studies:

Good Bye My Friend, we will miss you and may GOD be with you, India will never be the same
