About Me

The photo you view is when I was commanding this newly raised Bde at Ranchi. The number of my Bde is very significant as when I moved it in to Rajasthan during an emergency, an inteligence intercept said" 786 Bde has entered the area.Do not intevene!"

After this tenure I was posted to Deolali as AD Wing Commander and when the Wing moved out to Gopalpur, I was left behind to officiate as Dy Comdt of the School from where I retired on 01 Dec 1989. There on I went as Secretary at the RAA where my first wife Usha died in a fire accident. The School authorities, the Center as well as the COAS then Gen Rodrigues helped me a lot during this calamity. I owe a lot to the Gunners. I then married again ( late) gunner Lt Col Jagdish Hajare's wife Manda. We now live in Pune at my house for the past 16 years. I joined the gunners in the 17 para Fd Regt after being commissioned on 9th Jun 1957.

What a beautiful site. I am proud that I belong to this community and also that I have seen such advancment as never imagined in my younger days. At that time Ramjilal's invention in the Survey method was the in thing and much talked about. Then came what the famous gunner Gurdyal produced at Jabalpore=teh 105 Fd Gun. May be you are not aware that his grand son(Gwen'sson)is the famous actor'ARJUN RAMPAL!
