  1. Very well known that Service Personnel are highly prone to be inflicted by so called life style diseases due to severe & challenging service conditions , at times even beyond physical endurance and as such attributable to service life . No person would like to be thus disabled for
    sake of just receiving disability pension post retirement . To be fair , such disabilities suffered need to be accorded as per prevailing Govt rules and medical guidelines . Aberrations if any could be checked through just tightening of release medical boards . However denial of same and. arbitrary knee jerk actions and reactions could be counterproductive .

    Services may examine and improve upon their personnel’s deployment , working style , diet , service conditions and periodical medical examination to reduce such disabilities . Nevertheless pension or no pension , such disabilities are bound to take place due Service life ,should be acknowledged and need not out right/ unduly condemned & frowned upon . Well , a pigeon may close its eyes on meeting a cat and imagine that it has become invisible but the cat won’t disappear by such action and the result would be disastrous for the pigeon ! JAI HIND .
