    Lt Col Vijay K Khorana

    Kalyani and I are deeply grieved to learn of the loss of a very dear friend Vijay. Khorana, my course mate, who has been my great friend for decades. We did degree course together at CME, EDPS at Mhow and served in Army HQ. Very seldom one gets such a friend who is a real philosopher and guide. While serving in EME Directorate in Army HQ, he used to advice from his MS 4 desk to go for my command criteria so that I do not miss my opportunities to go on foreign assignments. In fact he was so personally involved and annoyed with me that he used to scold me for not doing my criteria appointment before coming to EME Dte. He came all the way to the Signals Centre Goa, (in spite of his indifferent health) to escort us to his home when we visited Goa, a few years back

    It is very difficult to believe that he is not amongst us any more. We feel very sorry that we will not meet him on the IMA Course Golden jubilee reunion next JUNE at Dehradun.

    Rita , has been looking after him very well and her support is the major cause for his always being happy and energetic even when he was not keeping well. We convey our heartfelt condolences to Rita and all other family members and pray God to give them enough strength to bear this loss.
    May his soul rest in peace.
    Thyagu and Kalyani
    Brig V Thyagarajan (Retd)
