In a country where the rich, and even most other citizens shy away from joining the army, this praise on army looks like a bribe to me. Had it not been so, they would have been telling - ' I am too old to join now, but am directing my son/grandson to join up. '
No, they don't do that. They simply pay money, praise my soldiers and are back to their MNC jobs.
That makes the praise look like a bribe to me - for the next war. That is a mercenary game.
In UK, the son of the Queen fights. In USA, son of President fought and died in war.
In Germany, the army was officered by Counts and Vons. Not in India. They open a shop(pe).
The PM/RM/NSA/cabinet ministers are all very eager to defend the nation - at my cost.

Look for the missing bullet holes.

During World War II, fighter planes would come back from battle with bullet holes. The Allies found the areas that were most commonly hit by enemy fire.
They sought to strengthen the most commonly damaged parts of the planes to reduce the number that was shot down.

A mathematician, Abraham Wald, pointed out that perhaps there was another way to look at the data.
Perhaps the reason certain areas of the planes weren't covered in bullet holes was that planes that were shot in those areas did not return. This insight led to the armour being re-enforced on the parts of the plane where there were no bullet holes.
