Airline Lunches I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat.
It was going to be a long flight from Gatwick.
‘I’m glad I have a good book to read Perhaps I will get a short sleep,’
I thought. Just before take-off, a line of British Army Youngsters came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me.
I decided to start a conversation.
‘Where are you blokes headed?’ I asked the Young man seated nearest to me.
After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that lunches were available for five pounds.
It would be several hours before we reached Cyprus , and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time..
As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his mate if he planned to buy lunch.
‘No, that seems like a lot of money for just an airline lunch. Probably wouldn’t be worth five Quid. I’ll wait till we get to Cyprus ….
His mate agreed. I looked around at the other soldiers.
‘Take a lunch to all those soldiers..’ She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly.
Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. ‘My young bloke was a soldier in Iraq , it’s almost like you are doing it for him.
Picking up ten lunchboxes, she headed up the aisle to where the boys were seated.
She stopped at my seat and asked, ‘Which do you like best – beef or chicken?
‘ ‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked.
She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class.
This is your thanks. After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room.
An old bloke stopped me.
‘I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.’ He handed me twenty-five Pounds.
Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he wasn’t looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane.
When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, and said, ‘I want to shake your hand.’
Quickly unfastening my seat-belt I stood and took the Captain’s hand.
With a booming voice he said, ‘I was an army pilot a long time back.
Once someone bought me lunch.
It was an act of kindness I never forgot.
‘ I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers.
Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs.
A kid who looked about 18 was sitting about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine.
He left another twenty-five Pounds In my palm.
When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to depart.
Waiting just inside the aeroplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word.
Another twenty-five Pounds! Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their Trip up to their training area.
I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five Pounds.
It will take you some time to reach your training area. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You Blokes.’
Ten young blokes left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow Brits.
As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return.
These soldiers were giving their all for our country.
I could only give them a couple of meals.
It seemed so little…
A British Serviceman is someone who,
at one point in his life, wrote a blank
cheque made payable to
‘ United Kingdom ‘
for an amount of

That is Honour, and there are way
too many foreigners in this country
who don’t understand it.’
This is India.
CHANDIGARH: Strange but true! Rs 2,550, that’s the amount which the Army feels, is sufficient to deny family pension to dependent parents of a soldier, who dies in a mishap.
According to the Army regulations issued on August 26, 1998, if the death of a soldier (including jawans and officers) is not attributable or aggravated by military service, his dependent parents would be entitled to ordinary family pension, provided their income from all sources is less than Rs 2,550 per month.(TOI 20 June 2011)
The Adarsh Housing Society is a cooperative society in the city of Mumbai in India. The origins of the scam go back to February 2002 when a request was made to the Chief Minister ofMaharashtra to allot land in the heart of Mumbai for the construction of a housing complex for “the welfare of serving and retired personnel of the Defence Services”. Over a period of ten years, top politicians, bureaucrats and military officers proceeded to bend several rules and perpetrate various acts of omission and commission in order to have the building constructed and then get themselves allotted flats in this premier property at artificially lowered prices. As the report of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India to the President of India in 2011 put it, “The episode of Adarsh Co-operative Housing Society reveals how a group of select officials, placed in key posts, could subvert rules and regulations in order to grab prime government land- a public property- for personal benefit.” The Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI), the Income Tax Department and the Enforcement Directorate(ED) are in the process of investigating allegations that three former chief ministers, Sushilkumar Shinde, Vilasrao Deshmukh and Ashok Chavan of the state of Maharashtra were also involved in the scam.
In an interview to The Hindu published on 26 March 2012, General VK Singh, the Chief of Army Staff ascribed many of the attempts to malign him during his tenure to, amongst others, those he described as “the Adarsh lobby”, those directly connected to the scam, as well as those who were affected by his efforts to rid the army of corruption.
‘I have sent my son (M.Azhagiri), to Madurai thinking that he will be safe there”
One of the sub-lieutenant of M.Azhagiri,Union Minister of Fertilizers, ‘Pottu’ Suresh, a criminal was killed, reportedly by DMK party men.
The man killed was on bail in a murder case.
Look at this.
Quite a few years back, a CPM Councillor in Madurai was hacked to death in broad daylight by DMK goondas.
Karunanidhi who was in power then, did not take action and the killers were given party posts.
But persistent pressure by the CPM forced him to have them arrested and the were jailed.
But when DMK came to power again, they were released on the birth day of Day of Annadurai.
They were given plum party posts.
Then came Manmalaimedu Savarimuthu murder.
He was a lieutenant of Azhagiri.
He was attacked on the day of his daughter’s marriage in Madurai.
He was given a warning that he will be killed within ten days and he was.
The DMK people who were involved in this heinous act are in the Party, in senior positions now!
Then came the murder of Tha.Krittinan ,Madurai who was killed while on a walk in the early morning in Madurai.
The man responsible for this became the Deputy Mayor of Madurai!
It is noteworthy that Azhagiri was also charge sheeted in this case
Violence is not new to DMK.
Right from the day of its inception, it was indulging in un- parliamentary verbal attacks on their political rivals-you can not write them , so vulgar.
Karunanidhi once said that the DMK had formulated a scheme for widows and Indira Gandhi was welcome to avail it!
He called her birth in question, organised attacks on her in Madurai, was arrested.
Then she became the ‘Darling Daughter of Nehru,Give os stable Government’
The man responsible for this, ‘Attack’ Pandi’ became the President of District Agricultural Committee and was seen travelling with the District Collector!
The incidents narrated here are only a few.
Be it attacks on EVK Sampath(father of EVKS Ilangovan),Kannadasn ,Jayakanthan,Nathgam Ramaswamy,the list is endless.
Noe the Frankenstein monster is catching up.
I think this is the only logical end for the DMK.
AIADMK is not far behind.
DMK and AIADMK are the same.
This is the formula.

Surprising is the fact that the Media , which should be impartial have been screaming, to the extent that TimesNow News Channel devoted a Debate in Prime time.
Do these people not listen to the audio?
Where exactly does Gadkari compare Swami Vivekananda and Dawood Ibrahim per se?
He states that though the IQ levels of Swami Vivekananda and Dawood may be the same ( which is of course is open to question), while Vivekananda used it in Nation Building activities, Dawood in Criminal activities.
The possession of IQ is not important but the use of it.
I do not see any thing objectionable in this statement.
When you want to high light a point it is normal to compare the Best and the Worst, in this case the use of Buddhi.(intellect).
Knowing the scams he is involved in Gadkari could have kept his mouth shut.
I am reminded of the instance when the ace Film Director K.Balachander made films like Arangetram where a Brahmin girl becomes a prostitute, there was an uproar that he was insulting the Brahmin community.
K.Balachander is a Brahmin.
Balachanders reply was ‘ I wanted to high light the travails and the degradation of values.
What better way than to show the Brahmin community which is regarded as the epitome of Cultural values?
