    An upright and a bright young Officer, who was epitome of soldierly qualities. Commanded his unit with elan and was always cheerful despite the tremendous strain of Op Parakram which was in progress. We had professional links with his unit for communication in operational scenarios, where he was always forthcoming.. A great loss to the nation.
