MUSINGS OF A SOLDIER: TIT-BITS

People often ask me about my life out of uniform. Honestly, I have had no problems. Not so far. Instead, I find it quite refreshing. No routine, no parades, no briefing, no impending operations. Having donned the uniform since the age of thirteen until I hung up my boots last year, could I ever visualize life out of uniform? Not really. But, as I said, the transition has been quite smooth–no hang-overs, no regrets. People have been very positive in their interactions. Government departments have been responsive whenever I have approached for assistance.The genuine respect for the uniform is quite evident and it makes my heart swell with pride. Arunachal, to that extent, is the most nationalistic state in the country, I daresay. It has been kind of a revelation for me to experience the freedom of being a common man in an environment of positivity!

Musings of a Soldier The Beginning of a Journey

I don’t precisely remember how I joined Ramakrishna Mission School (RKMS), Aalo in 1966, but I do remember trudging 3 kms, one way, along with my elder sibling late Jarbom Gamlin – yes, the one who was in ‘politics’ and became the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh in 2011 - to attend school. I was born with six toes in my right leg – so, could never wear a pair of shoes until I got the extra toe surgically removed in January 1974 for my entry to Rashtriya Indian Military College, Dehradun (which I have spoken about in my previous ‘piece’), and perforce, I used to wear slippers to school.

Musings of a Soldier Bravest of the Brave

For the readers of my ‘musings’, let me fast forward to my years as an officer in the Army. Not many of you would be aware that I served in the ‘infantry’ – soldiers who measure ‘victory’ on foot (!) – that too, with the ‘Gorkhas’.
