    Last year Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed to the nation to honour and respect soldiers who lay down their lives guarding the borders.

    Delhi: It seems that people are paying heed to what Prime Minister Narendra Modi had urged them to do a couple of months back.

    Addressing a gathering of ex-servicemen, war widows and students in Bhopal on the occasion of inauguration of Shaurya Smarak state war memorial, constructed by the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government, Prime Minister on October 14 last year had appealed to the nation to honour and respect soldiers who lay down their lives guarding the borders.

    He had said that in foreign countries, often when sitting at airports or railways stations one sees that soldiers are given standing ovation by civilians even when they just pass by.





    PM Modi had asked, "Can we make this effort slowly and develop a tradition to show respect to our defence forces?"

    He had added that such small factors make a huge difference in "our lives and soldiers' lives."

    Praising the armed forces for their bravery, he had said they were also among the first ones across the world when judged on the yardsticks of discipline and concern for fellow human beings.

    Given PM's appeal, a recent video of crowds breaking into applause on seeing Indian Army soldiers at Indira Gandhi International Airport will warm many a hearts.

    And on the other hand, Supreme Court has asked all personnel to be tried for extra-judicial killings where evidence was not enough to prove complicity in insurgence.

    Cases as old as 14 to 18 years old, will be re-opened and personnel, since retired, will be tried.

    Basically, proving them innocent while assuming them guilty.

    When has a counter insurgency war been black and white? Innocents do die, mistakes happen. Yet, majority of the times, the person who deserves to die, is killed by the armed forces.

    If every underground worker was tried in a court of law, we would never win an insurgency.

    Everyone should be brought to justice. Wrong is wrong, whoever does it. And for affected people justice must be served. Nothing wrong in SC observation.

    Not really. We used to do it since our childhood.
    I still remember my school was nearby a railway line and there was an army train always crossed from there once in a week and all my classmates including me used to stood in line with pride and saluted them whenever this train passed by.
