It's behavioural trait really, nothing much different from anywhere in the world. They lead a different and difficult life, a sense of superiority helps them sail through it. No biggie there as long as they are not Pak Army. Their better integration with the civilian society through Corporate hiring and other entrepreneurial practices must be encouraged. They are able leaders afterall.This is one of my pet peeves with army officers whether serving or retired. I told a retired officer in my neighborhood WA group that all Indians recognize and take pride in the accomplishments of the Indian defense forces but this "Holy Cow" treatment, its over-glorification and dismissing non Army people is simply not done. Is it of any surprise that majority of these army officers, post retirement fall for scams and lose their hard earned money in civilian life? The respect has to be mutual. Army is for the nation and its civilian population and not the other way around.
