My First “Love” Story – Rendezvous at Sunrisekarve

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 10:58:48 +0000

Long back – in the 1980’s – when I was in Vizag – we went on long walks – to Dolphin Nose and “Continental” Beach below – especially on Sunday Mornings. It was after one of these walks – nearly 30 years ago – a story germinated in my mind. I wrote the story. It was my first piece of creative writing (I had done a […](image)

Humor in Uniform – “Rankophilia” and “Rankomania”karve

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 08:07:56 +0000

Everything has pros and cons.  Likewise OROP (One Rank One Pension) has pros and cons too.  The very term One Rank One Pension implies that Pension will be based on Rank. Thus – in order to get more OROP – desperation for getting promoted to high rank will increase.  And – this desperation to get promoted will further exacerbate the “Rankomania” epidemic afflicting the Defence Services.

Humor in Uniform – “Military Medicine” Made Simplekarve

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 07:28:10 +0000

When anyone asks me about life in the Armed Forces (the Army – the Navy – or – the Air Force) – I tell them to read the famous World War 2 Novel CATCH-22 by Joseph Heller. If you have served in the Defence Services – in all probability – you would have read Catch-22 – and even if you have not read it – you would have experienced […](image)

Memories of My Navy Days – All’s well that ends well karve

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 08:44:42 +0000

The term “alma mater” refers to the institution where you have studied. In Latin – “alma mater” literally means “nurturing mother” (or “nourishing mother”) Having “studied” in various educational and training institutions – I have many “almae matres” (or “alma maters”) – the civilian schools and colleges/institutes where I studied – and – the Naval Academy where I received my initial Navy Training – and – the Naval Ships and “Stone Frigates” where I was trained.
