It is Honour which is the best (sole) motivation for a soldier once combat is joined. The Govt is not doing enough to uphold the status and honour of the men in uniform. Constant down gradation of rank vis a vis other central Govt services and non implementation of OROP in its exact form and contesting the NFU in Court are just some of the factors that show that the Govt does not walk the talk so far as recognition of the services of the soldier is concerned. Also the attempt to equate para military with the Army Navy Air Force is incorrect as their training and manifesto are totally different. By an Act of Parliament no one outside the Armed forces can wear the uniform worn by the Defence Forces. This should be strictly implemented, toreiterate the pride of the Forces and not confuse the lesser informed public about who is who in the forces hierarchy.
