A GOOD DECISION ANMOL 04-Nov-2010
Power and Pelf by the Senior Defence Forces Officers has become a norm. We can understand the misdoings by Civilians but the same is not acceptable from Defence Forces as we consider them the last Bastion against the ills of Society. To get involved by the Chiefs who goad and coax their men to lead from Front but at the same time themselves indulging in such action is indeed shameful. Also asking for favours on Personal level is most demeaning to the wonderful Organisation they have served. These guys should be banned from any Military Functions, Clubs, Messes etc. An example should be set so that the Senior Officers who indulge in such activities think twice before taking such Noxious step.

Indian Socialism, Success, Freebies, Politicians and Election Promises: A Fictional Account
When the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Nehru's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Indian Socialism plan"... All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A...
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D! No one was happy.
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.
As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that?
India's Socialism implies maintaining a spineless Military Force... Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, Gen VK Singh and the like are rare exceptions
