Shiv,

Can you make your blog a bit light-weight? Every effing frame is loading some crap and slowing down the load time.

Anonymous said...

Your Blog is becoming more like INDIA TV promo headlines, which runs for half and hour with no meaning whatsoever.

Don't degrade to the standard of INDIA TV.

Definitely "ALL is NOT well" with this general.

What is the use of 126 frontline arcraft, state of the art Rifle, dangerous missiles, , if the man wielding these weapons are hollow from inside like this general.

But also, I can wait till proven guilty or wait till this scam is also pulled under the red carpet of congress High command

Why is our Indian Army full of thieves? They have reached the pits with Arjun tampering scam,land scam, milk scam, coffin scam, sexual harassment, golf cart scam...the list is endless. How can we entrust the defense of our country to such people? The Indian Army is still a racist relic of colonial India. It's high time we took a serious look in the way it is structured and managed. Why are we recruiting foreigners AKA Nepalis (7 Rgts) in our IA? They were recruited by the British to quell Indian independence movements. We have not fought any war for the last 40 yrs. So why does a country of 1 billion needs to recruit Nepalis and pay 10,000s of crores to Nepal by way of salaries, pensions etc. particularly when several Indian states do not have their regiment and Nepal is fast turning out to be an enemy country?

It is bcoz of people like Anon 5.34PM Indians are booted and kicked abroad.Corruption is now ingrained in our blood.
We must give death sentence to senior officers who are found guilty of corruption and spying.

Obviously those criticizing Shiv are from the armed forces, uncomfortable of the fact that those who are supposed to defend our country are proving to be no different than petty thieves.

Int64 said...

HOW CAN YOU GUYS BE SO SURE THAT, HE IS INVOLVED IN THE SCAM?

ON THE OTHER NOTE EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT LOOTING INDIA: HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING ETHICAL, NOT PAYING BRIBES, NOT CHEATING ON ELECTRICITY(WHICH IS COMMON ALL ARROUND INDIA), A CRIME IS A CRIME, SMALL OR BIG. EVERYONE IS EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COUNTRY. SO STOP MAKING HYPE TILL THE TIME SOMETHING IS PROVED.

AT LEAST HE SPEND HIS LIFE FOR COUNTRY, WHILE MOST OF YOU WERE BUSY ENJOYING YOUR LIVES, THESE MEN WERE PROTECTING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. STOP BLASPHEMING ANYONE RELATED TILL ITS NOT PROVED

Hey Shiv!

A disgraceful n shameless so-n-so like this one doesn't deserve to be on this blog even for the wrong reasons. Please remove the picture immediately. The only way to treat such people is with public contempt and by socially outcasting them.

Shiv, you are doing a fantastic job. People like you are the only hope for this country where even the Police and now Army, forces which are supposed to defend the country, are now involved in all kinds of big and petty crimes.

Plz get your facts right before trying to portray pseudo patriotism. For your info, this man's antecedents go back years when at 15 corps he spited against 2 very righteous senior officers, one of them being Genl. Panag.

This guy was the most vociferous opponent of Arjun Tank. We need to dig up T90 acquisitions and find out how that deal was passed, particularly when India had acquired the technology of Leopard 2A4 AKA Arjun.

How can such corrupt and mean minded people reach the top of our armed forces? Obviously others are also involved in this mess.

Serving in the armed forces is a rare privilege not a liability. Only very few are allowed entry into it's hallowed portal.So cut the BS of "serving the country while others enjoying their lives". Amount of "enjoyment" in armed forces is far higher than what is available or affordable to civilians.
I hope you know the difference between a common man cheating on electricity and Chief of the Army, illegally taking occupation of homes for the war widows. This only proves how rotten our armed forces actually are.

When I was in India, this general was defending vehemently that a serving general like him is still good enough to be in service even after his recent discovery of being "partially deaf in one ear". NDTV in that interview pointed out that "could this be one ploy to get 20% extra pension?", for which, this guy did not give a satisfactory answer. Well, thats when I felt felt fishy about him. Can this retired official still be tried in court, if yes in which court? (military or civil).

Why blame the ARMY General’s & the rest of the officers at all? When you’re local babu, pandu and neta can do the corruption sitting right in New Delhi or any other state capital have worth’s of lakhs and crore’s of assets so why blame these ARMY officers.

Do note that they start their Military career at a very young age and they are posted out to j&k or the NE to fight counter insurgency. That’s their luck if they make it alive from it. Even when they are back to peace military stations life is still not easy for both officers & soldiers as they have been in such a hostile environment things are back home very different to what they had seen.

People in the cities or the rest of the India are hardly bothered to what these ARMY Troops put in for the country. When the troops see the glamour, life style and the money power they feel neglected by the government that their duty and service to the nation are just compared to nothing.

Army Troops provide the best of services to the county in many fields weathers its protecting borders to fighting insurgency, welfare for the civilians such as running ARMY good will School & vocational centers, providing a cover in drought, flood or any other type of natural disaster to maintaining law and order, winning medals in Olympics, common wealth games or any other games.

ARMY Troops are proud citizens, who do extra ordinary duties throughout, so why not treat them special for their special duties & activities and make them give the best so that they are not neglected or harassed by the local babu, pandu or netas.

This is really not a scam at all. It’s just a hype done by the media for no reason. They have made the Armed Forces a joke because there are no restrictions on the media whatsoever at all. Before pointing fingers why isn’t the media following the CWG mess by Mr Kalmadi and party which runs into crores, I don’t hear them in news at all or let’s take Miss mayawati what happened to the media when hundreds of trees have been cut down for her ambedkar park and the land taken for her own interest. Isn’t this a scam where tax payer’s money is being used by these netas for making such crazy looking parks? What happened with lalu’s chara ghotala? These netas fight with mic’s and slippers in the parliament so why isn’t any action ever taken against any of them for anything they do. In tehelka case all the ARMY officers have been punished but nothing happened to Mr. George Fernandes or Bangaru Laxman taking bribe on cam.

Why don’t the media see the corruption done by a pandu on the streets or a police station? A district magistrate who earn money like anything or even a RTO who earn like the pandu for every hour. A local babu who just sits and cribs for money.
When these people living in comfort and misuse their power daily makes a lot in a year which is a scam. Why don’t media see this?

Media won’t follow this at all because they go where they get money and they brainwash peoples mind as they work for netas.

In simple terms give the Indian Army their right due which they deserve because they are a class up/apart.

the general would want to be tried in a civil court because military courts are very swift, strict and hand down harsh punishments.

Gen Kapoor was a stooge of the UPA govt who was chosen because he will not upset the apple cart of corruption in MOD, as was Gen JJ Singh. the politicisation of the forces have to stop. select the best man for the job, not the yes-man for the job.

it's still early days yet but it appears Gen VK Singh is made of better material.

Amazed to see you and your uncles alive!

I am confused: "Padma Bibhusana" or "Firing Squad"?

"AT LEAST HE SPEND HIS LIFE FOR COUNTRY, WHILE MOST OF YOU WERE BUSY ENJOYING YOUR LIVES, THESE MEN WERE PROTECTING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY."

Oh, really? But you missed to say that his kind of men were protecting "your" pocket too.

We must immediately conduct a CBI investigation on the T90 acquisition. The CBI must also check this general's assets in order to ascertain whether his assets are disproportionate to his income.

Trammel said...

@Rommel,

Your comment sounds like cheap melodramatic Bollywood tear jerker (which has more footage on bahus, girlfriends and last but not the least "ma" crying for the hero fighting "for his country") rather than on battle scenes.

Now the people you claim to protect have become "pandu"??? It's that pandu's tax money that pays your salary and free booze in defense club houses whereas the Pandu at times does not have food to eat.

You mean just bcoz netas and babus are making money so the sipahis should also siphon off money meant for "saving the nation"?

J&K and NE are parts of India, and they are tourist destinations. The insurgents you "fight" are village boys. So cut the melodrama.

Defense personnel get all the glamour and life style tax free in CSD canteen, the same products the civilian has to pay a fortune by way of taxes. Also please mention the free ration and booze that you guys get.

We must start hanging all those found indulging in corrupt practices.

Trammel,

Free Booz ???? man where, I have been serving for 15 yrs never gound out. The booz we drink is the booz we pay for. NE and j&K tourist spots, I m sure you go there often. Just ask your rep (MP/MLA) to revoke the government order revoking army deployment. We too dont like it very much here. The Cable does not give you many channel and the place is full of suckers like you.

You want to "fight for the nation" 24X7 in a disco club in Mumbai? Attaboy, it seems you are another clone of this Deepak kapoor. It seems IA has more gangstas than soldiers.
