dear good fellas,
Gen VK has been fighting the good fight, most of the comments from the naysayers revolve around the suggestion, that VK should have "rolled over & played dead", in the face of all the shenanigans going on around him.This is not what God, had ordained him to do.Lets take some of the comments of the anti VK lobby,1.]DOB:if SC is not to decide a case on its merits, than pray what is it to decide on.not demerits surely.2.Esstopel:without any legal mumbo-jumbo, esstopel simply means " once something has been stated, you cant turn around later & say that was wrong or not what i meant.SC has based its obsn on VK having accepted in writing a particular dob & the SC/ media etc went to town on this with stmnts like govt stand vindicated/not vindicated, honour restored/not restored & so on.Looking at case in its entirety,before VK, the principal of his school has given in writing , the chairman of UPSC has given in writing before he joined NDA & MOST Impt CO MH where he was born has given in writing a birth certificate,why is esstopel not being applicable here?.The ans to me is that then the story ends & alongwith it all the carefully laid plans of the thugs come to nought.Hence the campaign of calumny launched against VK.The mistakes which VK made, to my mind are not having the MS in the first instance, charged with insubordination & unbecoming conduct when he was army cdr. & not filing fir against tejinder, to me it seems VK Is a bit of a softie & hesitates taking a sit to its logical end under some vague subjective considerations, something like " so far & no further"if you have seen the movie "enter the dragon" you may understand.The withdrawl of his case is also in the same vein, unfortunately he selected an idiotic lawyer.Many of us may have come across such offrs ,i at least have. I would rec. you all to read post/article of jaswant singh, adm ramdass & comments of vet mahendrau,gp capt vidhyadhar, maj gen suman, besides others in similar vein.Bynow the character/honour of prev chiefs is clear so wont comment on that.Finally!my view on corruption, has always been that the rot starts at the top & spreads like a cancer across the institution, even in one as revered as the army.Gen VK has been fighting the good fight, & all should support him..
