Jai Hind & my salute to you all.
1. The South Zone Military Veterans (SZMV) Meet is scheduled on Sunday, 15 Nov 2009, at Bangalore. In all our Ex-Servicemen events & activities it is important that WE showcase our strength; and hence, I request all State Conveners to urge all District Conveners to motivate at least one retired Officer or a retired JCO/NCO/OR from each Dist. to attend the SZMV Meet at Bangalore on 15 Nov 2009.
2. Col Ashok Kumar (a Madras Sapper) spoke to me from Hyderabad last evening and was very kind to extend all help, assistance & support in making the SZMV Meet a GRAND success. He said that not only one Ex-Servicemen from each District Of Andhra would attend the meet, but was confident of bringing minimum of 300 Veterans from all over Andhra.
3. I had the pleasure of speaking to Col Sayam (of Kakinada) this morning and he too has pledged his support for the Meet.
4. I spoke to Col Arasu, AMC, Dist Convener Tanjavoor, this morning and he too has promised to get not only one Ex-Servicemen from each of the 30 Districts Of Tamil Nadu, and would bring a contingent of minimum 250 Veterans from all over Tamil Nadu, to attend the Meet on 15 Nov at Bangalore.
5. I also had the pleasure of speaking to Col RG Nair, State Convener Kerala, this morning, who said that he too would do his best to get maximum number of Veterans from Kerala.
6. In addition to above, it would be my endeavour to get at least one Officer to attend the meet from each of the States of the North East, viz. Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Assam, Meghalaya & Arunachal Pradesh.
7. A number of Officers from the North have also promised to attend, in addition to Officers coming from Bengal, Orissa, Maharashtra & Chattisgarh.
