  2. Hi Anil,
    Hats off to your courage and determination.No wonder NDA is a cradle for Leadership and maker of real men.It was as close to a Deja vu as can be for me.I am Ex.NDA 50th and Ex.119(F/P) .I had to be released from the IAF on medical grounds in 1977 after struggling with an acute form of
    Guillian Barre Syndrome.I was completely paralysed,had trouble breathing and could not walk or stand for about 3 months.The efforts of the doctors at the Command Hospital,Pune and the hospital in Secunderabad as also the doctor who transferred me from EFS,Bidar all paid off.
    I changed to a new profession-chef.I am at the moment in Sydney,Australia.My email:anant_garde@yahoo.com.Please get in touch so we can share our similar experiences.

  8. ബഹുമാനപ്പെട്ട അനില്‍ കുമാര്‍ സാര്‍,
    അങ്ങയെക്കുറിച്ച് മുന്‍പൊരിക്കല്‍ ‘മനോരമ’യില്‍ വായിച്ചിരുന്നു.ഇന്ന് അങ്ങയെ കണ്ടെത്തിയത് ഇന്റര്‍നെറ്റിലാണ്.അങ്ങയെക്കുറിച്ച് ,എട്ടാം ക്ലാസ്സിലെ ഇംഗ്ലീഷ് പാഠപുസ്തകത്തില്‍ പഠിപ്പിക്കാനുണ്ടെന്നും വിവരങ്ങള്‍ കണ്ടെത്തിക്കൊടുക്കണമെന്ന് ഭാര്യ ആവശ്യപ്പെട്ടിരുന്നു.
    അങ്ങയെക്കുറിച്ച് കൂടുതല്‍ അറിയാന്‍ കഴിഞ്ഞതില്‍ സന്തോഷം.അങ്ങയെ അടയാളപ്പടുത്തിയ
    “…..real battles was fought in the dark corners of the mind ” ഇതായിരിക്കട്ടെ അങ്ങയെ പഠിക്കുന്ന കുഞ്ഞുങ്ങള്‍ നേടേണ്ടത്.
    മലയാളത്തില്‍ കുറിച്ചത് അങ്ങയെ ബുദ്ധിമുട്ടിക്കില്ലെന്ന് കരുതുന്നു.
    ആശംസകളോടെ
    രമേശന്‍ പുന്നത്തിരിയന്‍
