The Indian Army and Border Security Force jawans are involved in daily, deadly skirmishes with the Pakistani army/terrorists. As Amit Lodha, IPS, DIG BSF Jaisalmer, read this piece - Won't cry on son's martyrdom, will keep promise: BSF Jawan's mother - he wondered, do the citizens of this nation really know what the jawan does for his nation?

In this heart-felt piece, he talks emotionally about those who lead from the front and also lauds film actor Akshay Kumar for the manner in which he spoke to the slain BSF martyr Gurnam Singh's family:

"Don't feel sad beta, feel proud that Gurnam has laid his life for the nation." I shuddered when I listened to Bibi Jaswant Kaur, mother of Gurnam Singh, a constable of the Border Security Force, who died fighting terrorists. Such a strong and fiercely proud woman! Gurnam Singh, 26, was the son of a truck driver, Sardar Kulbir Sing…

Madras HC Suggests Temporary Employee’s Widow’s Compassionate Appointment [Read Judgment] Read more at: http://www.livelaw.in/madras-hc-suggests-temporary-employees-widows-compassionate-appointment/

In a bid to commiserate with an aggrieved widow of a temporary municipality worker, who expired before regularization of his service, the Madras High Court has directed the authorities to consider her appeal for compassionate appointment to a temporary post as early as possible. The deceased’s wife had filed the writ petition seeking terminal benefits on the contention that he lost the chance of regularisation by a whisker; if alive he would have assuredly been placed as a regular employee on February 23, 2006. She filed an application on October 5, 2006, at the Commissioner of Municipal Administration seeking compassionate employment and to the Paramakudi Municipality seeking disbursal of terminal benefits. The appeals were rejected on the contention that he was not a regular employee at the time of death. A division bench of Justice M Sathyanarayanan and Justice J Nisha Banu, while passing the above order, however, dismissed her appeal against the court’s refusal to order the Commis…
