    Really good to see a straight forward, upright soldier like Admiral Joshi getting what he deserves, it's an excellent decision by the Modi Govt. I always thought it was an absolute bloody disgrace the way the last Government treated the Admiral and pushed him out to alter the succession line. But in the end, the Admiral stands vindicated.
