Will Gp Capt Sachin our icon battle for welfare of IAF personnel?

Dear Friends,
Undoubtedly, Mr Sachin Tendulkar is the icon of Indian cricket without any blemish attached to his name. Inspite of setting many world records to his credit, he continues to imbibe the true qualities of a humble human being. He is a great man and Indians are proud of him. Well, the IAF has done good to make him the icon of its face by honouring him the honorary rank of Gp Capt. On his part and as stated by him in his maiden speech on the occasion of the ceremony of attaching the epaulets of the rank of Gp Capt on his shoulders, he accepted that he is now feeling a part of the IAF itself. Mr Sachin is now Gp Capt(Hon). God bless him with long life.

Having accepted the responsibilities of icon of the IAF, will he also espouse the cause of the aspirations of the IAF and the personnel of the Defence Force at large. Will he join hands with the veterans and the would be veterans for acceptance of OROP by the GOI. My gut feeling is that he will in some form or the other. Gentlemen, who will take the lead in this matter. Our trusted friend Bendre could use his writing skill to the advantage of the veterans. The subject could also be taken up through IESM/Report My Signal Blog
