  1. A country like India, which aspires to be a great power, must enjoy the respect of the armed forces.Great nations have prospered coz they always kept military happy for the well being of the nation. How about India? Here the Veterans are deprived of their legitimate right.

    Veteran Lt Generals got their due after a long struggle in the courts and found it difficult to pass the BUROCTATIC RED TAPE for more than a year. The Lt Colonels got their due when AOC-in C and Naval Chief challenged to throw there batons. And now it is turn of veteran Majors pre 2006, who are deprived of their legitimate parity in pension. God save this country!!
    Anyone knows what the Government has given in so called " One Rank One Pension "??
