Time to Award Bharat Ratna to Sam Manekshaw

, by indianmilitaryveterans

IssueCourtesy: CLAWS| Date : 21 Dec , 2013
16 December is celebrated as ‘Vijay Divas’ to mark India’s greatest military victory in modern times. This article is a tribute to the architect of that great victory, India’s greatest soldier of modern times, Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.
What better tribute can be given than conferring the Bharat Ratna on his 100th Birth Anniversary on Sam Manekshaw, the leader who brought India its greatest military victory of modern times.
In a few months from now, on 3rd April 2014, the country will commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Field Marshal Sam Hormusji Framji Jamshedji Manekshaw, popularly referred to the world over as Sam Manekshaw.  His image is one that of larger than life – a charismatic countenance, bravado, inspirational, heroic, humorous, rebellious and defiant towards authority, but surely for the soldiers whom he commanded – just brave, inspiring and one that of immediate connect- a true leader.  The image is iconic and of a person the likes of whom rarely walk the earth.  There are military leaders and there is Sam Manekshaw.
His achievements – a Military Cross for an act of personal bravery in World War II; actively involved in the planning process of operations in J&K during the 1947 Indo-Pak War while posted in the Military Operations Directorate in Army HQ; in 1962, at the height of the Sino-Indian conflict, he was rushed to take over 4 Corps to stem the advancing Chinese -his famous quote – “There will be no withdrawal without orders – and these orders shall never be issued”; during his tenure as Army Commander Eastern Command, the Naga Insurgency was put down; he was awarded the Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian award, for distinguished service in the field of civil service in 1968; in June 1969, he took over as the Chief of Army Staff and remained so till January 1973.  His role and contribution to the nation in ensuring a decisive victory for the Indian Army during the 1971 Indo-Pakistan War, leading to the creation of Bangladesh is stuff of legend.  In 1972, he was awarded the Padma Vibhushan and on 1st January 1973 the honorary rank of Field Marshal was conferred upon him, a first in the history of Indian military.  There remains little doubt that Sam Manekshaw was India’s greatest soldier in modern times and arguably, one of the greatest in the history of modern warfare.

AAP effect: Haryana cuts power tariff

Chandigarh, December 31
The New Year has brought cheer to residents of Haryana. From January 1, they will pay Rs 200 less on their bi-monthly bills up to 1,600 units. “An amount equal to the relief given to the consumers would be paid by the government to the Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) and the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) from the state budget,” Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said here tonight.
Hooda also announced that there would be no increase in electricity tariff for the next financial year (2014-15) in the state. “The Discoms will file the Annual Revenue Requirement (ARR) petition before the Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission to seek no power hike,” he said.
The decision, which has been taken ahead of the forthcoming parliamentary and assembly elections and apparently to contain the growing influence of the Aam Aadmi Party, is expected to benefit nearly 40 lakh small consumers.
In fact, recently there have been widespread protests across state against “inflated” bills.
Observers felt the populist decision would affect the financial restructuring plan of the discoms recently announced by the central government.
Only recently, the Hooda government accepted the Centre's bailout package for discoms by taking over 50 per cent of the liabilities (Rs 8162.09 crore), calculated by March 31, 2012, to set the stage for their restructuring. Besides, the arrears of the power bills in the state are pegged at nearly Rs 4,155 crore.
Since April 1, 2012, the discoms had affected six power tariff hikes, the last being Rs 0.34 hike on account of fuel surcharge adjustment with effect from October 1 last year.
The subsidy
  • The Hooda govt announces subsidy of `200 per bill for up to 1,600 units.
  • No power tariff hike for the 2014-15 financial year.
  • The govt to pay the subsidy amount to discoms from the state budget.
