    If only he had bunted Indira out then, retired from Army and become our president similar to Singapore-style semi-authoritarianism... we would have become the fifth Tiger of Asia today.

    Famous Quotations of Sam Manekshaw


    • On the military knowledge of politicians: "I wonder whether those of our political masters who have been put in charge of the defence of the country can distinguish a mortar from a motor; a gun from a howitzer; a guerrilla from a gorilla, although a great many resemble the latter."
    • On being asked by Indira Gandhi if he was ready to fight on the eve of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971: “I am always ready, sweetie."
    • On being placed in command of the retreating 4 Corps during the Sino-Indian War of 1962: “There will be no withdrawal without written orders and these orders shall never be issued.”
    • About the Gurkha: "If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha."
    • To a surgeon who was going to give up on his bullet-riddled body who asked him what had happened and got the reply, “I was kicked by a donkey.” A joker at such a time, the surgeon reckoned, had a chance.

    SAM Manekshaw on Leadership and Discipline

    'There is a thin line between being a Field Marshal and being dismissed'

    Field Marshal S H F J 'Sam' Manekshaw, independent India's greatest military commander, would have turned 100 on April 3, 2014.

    To mark the occasion and to celebrate a brilliant mind and one of India's best-loved soldiers, we reproduce, with kind courtesy of the Indian Defence Review, the Field Marshal's lecture at the Defence Services College, Wellington, on Leadership and Discipline, on November 11, 1998.

    I cannot like my own post. Yet I give a 100 likes for the above post. It is very true even today and applies with perfection to the crisis we are facing be it political or military or economical.
