IESM: Rally unifies focus on Veterans decline of status and honour

Respected Veterans,
Gen Raj Kadyan, Admiral Barin Ghose, Gen Satbir Singh, Gen Aditya Jaini, Gen Renjen, Gp Capt Vinod Gandhi, Wg Cdr CK Sharma, Col RP Chaturvedi, Col Kirit Joshipura, Cdr Sharan Ahuja, Hon’y Lt Kameshwar Pandey & Warrant Officer Balathilakan.
Jai Hind.
Well done and my heartiest Congratulations to you all.
I compliment Col RP Chaturvedi for the caption, FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE. Indeed very apt.
Ex-Servicemen from all over the Country join me in saluting Mrs Daljit Kaur, the indomitable & spirited w/o Maj Gen Satbir Singh, who single handedly prepared packed puris & sabji for 1500 people. I have no words to express our gratitude; but to stand at attention in front of this Noble Warrior, no less than the Rani of Jhansi. Chree Cheers to DALJIT KAUR.
Col Shaitan Singh Rajan of Jingergacha
(Col SS Rajan, Member IESM Governing Body, Convener IESM Karnataka)

Heartiest Congratulations to the leaders of IESM, for having successfully carried out the scheduled programme in a befitting and eye catching manner. As I seldom watch the TV (unless forewarned), a civilian friend called me up late in the evening heaping congratulations for the excellent manner the programme was conducted, as he had just then viewed it on the TV.
A couple of days ago, someone had sent me a note as to how Leaders should behave during failures. The article was written by Dr APJ Kalam, when he was the Project Director of one of the Rocket launches. Maybe, the present incumbent of that Rashtrapati Bhawan, needs to be reminded of the duties that is expected of that august office. = Subramanyam

Jantar Mantar 22 Aug 10
Dear Veterans,
A great show! Ended with an insignificant event of our Supreme commander, as expected, not obliging to receive the medals. Never the less, the show to my mind has been modestly described by Col RPC, who estimated the strength to be around 1,500 to 1,800. Our compliments to him on his versatile coverage of the event. I watched the 'Times Now' News at 9 pm, with the following banners streaking below:-
a. More than 5000 ESM assembled to deposit their Medals.
b. The ESM claimed that they were treated shabbily.
c. Angry about the Pay hike of the MsP.
d. Demanded OROP which has been promised time & again by various parties.
e. ESM were deprived of their legitimate rights.
It showed Lt Gen Raj Kadyan, Maj Gen Satbir Singh, Maj Gen Jaini & a couple of other Veterans voicing their concern. Not a single instance of unruly behaviour was reported by the media. Speaks volumes about the manner in which the Members of the Governing Body conducted this event.... edited ...
Where do we go from here is the next question. Do we have a Road Map to exploit this success? What about the other popular Channels. 'Head Lines Today' was too busy in showing Sashi Tharoor's third innings in matrimony with the lady ( I do not know the number of her innings) who was responsible ( may be mutually) for his being de- throned from his ministerial pass time.
NDTV was busy with one of its mundane drawing room debates, about the middle class being non committal to the Nations progress. ... edited ... CNN IBN was busy with ... edited ...
