    Re: Gen Jaswant Jaswant Singh named new Army Chief

    This is such a great news :) Although 90% of top defence ranks in India are occupied by Sikhs, Stil better to know that a well-decorated Sikh is going to lead Indian Army :)

    Not to forget that General Singh is going to head the second biggest Army in the world i.e. Indian Army. With prestigious ranks with him, he is a recipient of Param Vishisht Sewa Medal, the nation’s highest peace-time military award for distinguished services as well as the Vishisht Seva Medal.

    Along with Gen Singh, there is a likelihood of another Sikh officer, Lt Gen B S Takhar donning the mantle of the new vice-chief of Army staff by next month.

    Personally, I will say, what u said is because of your current mindset, which sees only one aspect. Who will join US Army which is creating havoc in Iraq in the name of WMDs and mis-treating prisoners. Look how ably I picked up a negative instance of another army!

    What they did was their duty, and they did that as a true soldiers. Being a soldier is very tough, which only a soldier can understand, how they put off everything off, and see their duty as the only target.

    Sorry, if this offends anyone.

    Regards.

    actually wat you said about it being their dty,it makes sense i hadnt looked at it on that way(but that still doesnt make bluestar acceptable)any way i dont trust indian gov, so i couldnt possibly fit the duties of a soldier, cause if they ordered another bluestar, i definetly would not obey. btw u didnt offend anyone singh ji. :)

    lol , yeah represent the sikh image. :D

    BlueStar was not acceptable in any way.

    you may like to ponder more on - 'Religion First or Country?' There are so fine aspects to this question, that a simple answer doesnt come at least to me.

    Rejoice the time, when a Sikh is going to head the top notch army. Wishing a great time for the future for all.

    Regards.
