    Third Indo-UK joint military exercise next month

    The third Indo-UK joint Army training exercise 'Ajeya Warrior' will be conducted in Rajasthan next month, a defence spokesman said today.

    "A training exercise between the armies of India and the United Kingdom will be held from 1st to 14th December at the Mahajan Field Firing Range. It will be the third joint military exercise between the two countries," defence spokesperson Lt Col Manish Ojha said.

    The first exercise was conducted in 2013 at Belgaum, Karnataka, where as for the second exercise in 2015, an Indian Army contingent had visited the United Kingdom.

    Approximately 120 personnel from the 20th Battalion of Rajputana Rifles and the 1st Battalion of Royal Anglican Regiment of the Royal British Army will participate in the exercise, Ojha said.

    "The aim of the exercise is to build and promote bilateral relations and enhance interoperability while sharing experiences between the Royal British army and the Indian Army," he added.

    20 Rajputana Rifles has extensive experience in counter- terrorist operations, while the 1st Battalion of Royal Anglican Regiment has been involved in combat operations across Afghanistan and Iraq

    sorry but it seems the article is peppered with inaccuracies
    like the name of the regiment it is the Royal Anglian Regiment and not the Royal Anglican Regiment and as a matter of tredition the British army is Not given or addressed as royal as the current British army traces it leinage back to the New model army of the 1st Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland Oliver Cromwell or better known as the parlimentarian army and as the army supported the overthrow of the King to this day the Army has not been called Royal unlike the navy or the Air force but the royal colours are carried insted by the regiments of the same

    BENGALURU: The eighth edition of 'EKUVERIN', a joint operation between the armed forces of India and the Maldives, will be held from December 15 to 28 at Belagavi, Karnataka.

The seventh edition of the exercise was held at Kadhdhoo, Lammu Atoll, Maldives in December 2016. The exercise named EKUVERIN means 'friends' in the Dhivehi language.

    The focus of the exercise is to acquaint both armies with each other's operating procedures in the backdrop of a counter-insurgency/counter-terrorism operations in an urban/semi-urban environment.

    The two-week long exercise will see the contingents hone their tactical and technical skills. The exercise will also give an opportunity for the two armies to activate the Joint Operations Centre at Belgaum.

    The Maldivian National Defence Force will be represented by a team comprising of two officers and 43 Other Ranks, while the Indian Army will be represented by three officers, three Junior Commissioned Officers and 39 Other Ranks belonging to a Gorkha Rifles Battalion (Sirmoor Rifles).

    The statement said, "Maldives shares very close ethnic, linguistic, cultural, religious and commercial ties with India. Exercise Ekuverin helps in further strengthening of the ties between the two nations."

    The opening ceremony is scheduled on December 15 and will witness a flypast by the army aviation team along with a march past by the contingent from both the countries in the presence of Gorkha Regiment.

    Indian Army must stop its discrimination against military nurses
    Today, moves are afoot to take away the commissioned rank, to remove military nurses from the regular army and to reduce them in status and dignity to a situation worse than that under the English Army

    The Indian Army chief recently said that women would be inducted for combat roles. However, the manner in which the Military Nursing Service (MNS) officers have been discriminated against shows that the army has yet to learn constitutional functioning.

    Why do we need military nurses? Aren't the ones whom military relies on in the battlefield - combat medics? Or do we have women nurses on battlefield too?

    Then obviously, how can such nurses get the commissioned officer status? The article even claims discrimination worse than the British.

    I can understand if it was a field medic. But, the whole point of giving commissioned officer status to nurses is highly discriminatory for others who have put much more hardwork

    Dude, you don't know anything about the way the Armed Forces Medical Services work, do you?

    Speaking as someone who has been hospitalised at INHS Asvini, I can say this with full confidence: the doctors and nurses of the armed forces medical services deserve every bit of the status and privileges that they enjoy and then some more.

    Have you any idea how difficult it is to treat battlefield injuries, to treat men fresh from war with trauma wounds?

    And we faujis, with our misplaced sense of being tolerant to extreme pain, would we give a rat's ass to their advice had they not been commissioned men and women?

    Moreover, MNS and doctors all undergo training at AFMC, Pune and have to clear SSB mandatorily like any other commissioned officer of this country. Which is certainly more than I can say of you. No offense.
