    When Maneckshaw had died ; I saw a TV discussion ; (And I remember it very clearly )

    Where one retd General was saying that Maneckshaw made an INAPPROPRIATE remark
    that IF He (Maneckshaw ) was in Pak army ; Pak would have won
    And Also that He took all the credit for 19 71

    The point being that NOBODY is spared

    So if there is any truth to this story ; it would come out

    Hero! As a Punjabi Sikh there was that extra connection to him. But above all, as someone of Indian origin, he had/has my utmost respect and admiration!

    Rest in peace!

    Okay then, I will eagerly await your bakwas.

    You're an elder to me but today you crossed the line unnecessarily. Shame on you, Uncle. I don't even know if you were even an IN officer with all this nonsense you are spouting.

    your comments are most unwarranted when I have been told by @mods to hold on to my clarification. I will go by the @mods.

    My deep condolences and salute to the Lost Indian legend

    He was Second World War veteran, a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross among many other medals over a career spanning several decades, he is best remembered for his exemplary leadership of the Indian Air Force in the 1965 War.

    May his soul Rest in Peace..

    we all will die someday. I want to ask you guys will you still mourn the death of Gen Kapoor who sold his officer to get a flat in Adarsh society?

    Lt.Gen Harbaksh Singh is the true hero of 1965. he shud be respected as hero of 1965 and only legend of India for that war. Bigger and higher than even Manekshaw. I am not against sikhs but I am against the heros who have been thrust upon us as heros while they were actually cowards and cheats of our nation to be put in same category as Jai Chand and Mir Jaffer. let us recognise our real heros.
