    Shankar as I used to call him was my engineering batchmate at BITS pilani. He worked in Mumbai for a few years but got bored of the regular routine. I still remember the moment when he suddenly out of nowhere decided to go join the army. I always knew him as fearless. His interview was at Bhopal and I still remember out of the 40+ candidates he was the only one selected. His early posting was at arunachal Pradesh and still remember where we used exchange letters and he used to mention that he used to sleep with a loaded gun. I remember the very first time when he come back to Delhi after one of his postings. He was so proud to be part of the army. Lastly letter I wrote to him I was not aware that he had moved to the bomb disposal squad and was posted in Doda Kashmir and that is where he came to his end in action at a very young age. I remember him as a fearless soldier and his never say die attitude. I lost a dear friend and his family their only son. I salute him for his daredevil attitude and his courage all through his army life. May our country keep producing such great soldiers who fear nothing and embrace danger without a blink.
