    I'm quoting from Lt Gen L P Sen's book where he mentions his meeting with Mahatma Gandhi on 1 Nov 1947 as he was about leave for Kashmir.

    All i know LT general Harbax singh told Nehru not to go to UN. He will capture POK in 7 days. As he already secure Indian kashmir.. Patel also told nehru not to go to UN.

    Nehru screwed up all.

    LT GEN HARBAX SINGH

    Contradictions, oxymorons and ironies should be renamed in one word as Gandhi!

    He looks like vintage Khali
    .
    Our brave soldiers were always enough to win the wars but our idiotic and short/far sighted (or simply say BLIND) politicians always screwed it up and bought shame and everlasting issues.
    .
    On the other thread one member compared all the politicians(from Gandhi,Nehru...... to MMS)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Nehru......talked about pancsheel and got wiped by chinese.

    Shastri......settled for stalemate in tashkant!

    Indira......just to correct the history, it was Sam Bahadur who won the bangladesh war and not Indira. (she would have won if she would have settled the J&K issue once and for all by capitalising on the 1971 win)! in 1984 missed the oppurtunity when israel offered to bomb kahut and all they asked indira was refueling facilities!

    Gujral......closed the RAW bench of pakistan!!

    Vajpayee......had weak knees and no balls despite the attack on kargil and parliament and the IC 814 hijack, bjp used both kargil and parliament attack for political gains and in turn shamed our army!

    MMS.....mumbai attacks in 2008 and cant even hang the single red handed caught Kasab, and the Balochistan fiasco!

    Gandhi defines the helpless, week and insecure India, which can be treated badly but will not retaliate.

    We have work really hard to correct this sorrow image of India and make our India as it was in past.....(full of wealth and power)

    Gandhi was a great politician!

    Observe his words.

    He was against wars, but was not against doing things to protect the innocent.

    Great words.

    But difficult to understand the deep and profound sentiment and thoughts!

    He was Godlike!
