    Late Captain U.Ramdas is my elder brother. He was valor, courage, nobility and leadership personified. He was a Rimcolian(RIMC, Dehra Doon), Cadet captain at NDA, and passed out with outstanding commendation at the IMA. He sacrificed his life for the nation with great valor in the 1971 war in Bangladesh front. I remember the words of the jawan who brought his remains to my parents in Thiruvanthapuram, kerala when I was also present. With tears in his eyes he said to my parents that there was no other officer under whose command he would go to the battle than my brother Captain Ramdas, as he knew he would lead from the front and never ever put his troops in harmsway. His conduct in the war exemplified that. Never come across a human being with such nobility and selflessness . Family members and colleagues in uniform treasure his memory. Our prayers. His IC is 19395
