Had the honour of treating his father in my clinic. Jai hind. Simple man and very gentle mother, was very proud of being any use to such a debt.
An epitome of dignity, courage, cheerfulness, bravery, intelligence and compassion. Deepak was and is an ideal for many.
Privileged to have witnessed and shared memories with an iconic soldier and personality.
Would like to get in touch with Anju and Lamha Rawat.
