Brave sons of India. There is a lone memorial at Neuve Chapelle in France, built to honour more than 4,700 Indian soldiers, who died during World War 1: click here to read the Tribune article

Dear friends,
Finalising the location of the War Memorial in New Delhi, to honor those soldiers, sailors and airmen, who paid the supreme sacrifice for defending India. A worthy cause for IESM to take up and expose the callous attitude of the politicians and the bureaucrats. It is their job to reconcile conflicting requirements of different departments/ ministries. The worthy cause cannot be held ransom to such things.
No one less than the Prime Minister should chair a committee to finalise the issue, so that all ministries fall in line.

Indian Irony
How grateful is another culture that honours the people who fought to defend them and in the process sacrificed their lives in far off lands. And, here in "Mera Bharat Mahan", the ruling coterie of Netas and Babus deny a decent place at Delhi to honour its own soldiers, who died defending this country. What an irony!.
