Remembering one of India’s greatest military commander Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, MC on his birth anniversary.🙏

As Army Chief, #SamManekshaw led India's greatest victory in 1971 in which Pakistan surrendered to Indian Army with 93000+ soldiers. (1/3)
Sam Manekshaw & Yahya Khan (later who became President of Pak) were friends & on the staff of FM Sir Claude Auchinleck before partition.

Manekshaw owned a red James motorcycle, which Yahya had an eye on. He offered to buy it for Rs. 1000 & Manekshaw agreed. (2/3)
Partition happened & Yahya took the motorcycle to Pakistan & never paid Rs. 1000 he owned to Manekshaw.

"Yahya never paid me Rs. 1000 for my motorbike, but now he has paid with half his country," said Manekshaw after the 1971 war. (3/3)

Today on the Birth Anniversary of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, I wish to narrate how our hero was treated by the Government then.

One of the several reasons, Sam Manekshaw was treated badly, is mentioned in the tweet below 👇🏽

When Dr.Abdul Kalam was the President, he visited Coonoor. On reaching, he came to know that Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw was in the Military Hospital there. Dr.Kalam wanted to visit Sam, which was unscheduled. Arrangements were made.

At the bedside, Kalam spent abt 15 minutes talking to Sam & enquiring abt his health.

Just before leaving Kalam asked Sam "Are you comfortable? Is there anything I could do? Do you have any Grievance ? or any requirement that would make you more comfortable?"

स्वतंत्र भारताचे पहिले #फिल्डमार्शल्स

सॅम यांच्या लष्करात जाण्याचा निर्णयास त्यांच्या वडिलांचा विरोध होता. त्यावेळस 'मला लष्कारात जाऊ देत नसाल तर लंडनला पाठवा तिथे मी वैद्यकीय शिक्षण घेऊन गायनोकोलॉजिस्ट होईन' अशी इच्छा सॅमनी व्यक्त करताच वडिलांनी त्या गोष्टीलाही नकार दिला. शेवटी सॅम भारतीय लष्करात दाखल झाले.

आपल्या एकूण ४० वर्षाच्या लष्करी कारकिर्दीत ५ मोठ्या लढायांमध्ये भाग घेतलेला आधुनिक जगातील एकमेव योद्धा म्हणजे फिल्ड मार्शल्स सॅम माणेकशा !

Sharing a thread from an old lecture of late Field Marshal #SamManekshaw. He delivered this speech at Xavier's College,Mumbai, some years ago and spoke about attributes required for the #Leadership.
You may find it interesting & still very relevant.
