FORGIVE AND FORGET

DR K Prabhakar Rao

New army chief Singh is in saddle and he has to ride Roznette the famous Horse of Don Quixote the legendary knight who went around in search of knightly deeds.Indian army is now like Roznette the rickety skeletal horse and The Generals are expected to fight enemy of this land riding such horse.Hope the story of great Don is not enacted in real life. As it is, India is dumped with bulky Matron with sagging breasts, The Arjun Tank that goes lumbering around dragging itself with great pain like a pregnant duck.The new Chief was also in some controversy. However, he was cleared for the post. Finally the Govt got rid off Gen VK Singh and he proved to be a thorn in the flesh and an uncomfortable guy in uniform. Now soon BEML will probably file case against him unless he apologizes which any how he is not going to do. Life will not be easy for him after retirement as he will be shadowed at every turn.Anna Hazare asked him to join him in his crusade against corruption.He has to decide.Probably he will not join soon.Any one joining Hazare will be surely an immediate target.I do not know whether he has flair for writing like Gen Sinha. He should write his memoirs for posterity.Mr Antony the troubled Defense Minister already said the relations between army and civil services will start on new footing and all previous heart burns will be forgotten. It is easy to say these things.Even the new army chief said that the mutual relations will surely improve and hotspots will be removed.Hope so and it will be done in the interest of the nation. The civil govt should come out of the fear of a military coup whenever some crisis between both parties arises.They should not have night mares all the time about the army and possible coup. If a coup has to come it will come as no one can stop it. It looks rather silly.Generally it is believed that no uniformed guy wants to bear the crown of thorn in India.It is generally felt that this is a useless nation to govern by self government.Indians probably worked better under some foreign power that too when they were whipped. A sad story indeed. the present misgoverning corruption, chaos in administration stands testimony to this. Let army be happy with officers mess parties, Star plates, Red lights,Ladies nites, Ball room dances, Liquor parties,Sahayaks, Jeeps and Jongas with flags and colorful uniforms, red tabs, Red tapes around turbans,various courses in college of Defense management, degrees of JNU, Foreign courses and trips, golf parties, Red bands around peak caps,Gold braided insignia on cap, sand model discussions against unknown enemy and titles such as PVSM, AVSM and VSM with bars and sticks with them.As it is best talent in country does not join army and opt for corporate sector or they go abroad.Swinging arms and stamping shoes from 4 ft height( Damaging brains permanently at Academies) is no more attractive to youngsters except to some guys. Any how, it is for army to find proper people for its cadres.It is a changed scenario. Colossal damage has been done by the present avoidable crisis by MOD with Gen VK Singh.Civilians wanted to prove their supremacy. In turn they damaged the only Institution left in the country free of shit.MOD says past is past. Forget and forgive. That is fine. Hope country will not see another 1962 with another VK Menonn and Nehruji.. etc.
