    LT Gen ID Verma and Col Vasudevan Nair

    Greetings from Mhow. Having lost my father in May this year I felt very sad to read about the news of General Verma's demise on Report My Signal. I am enclosing a photograph which shows both these veterans. I have been seeing this photograph in our family album for well nigh four decades now. When I asked my mother, Mrs. Ponnamma Vasudevan, about this photograph she told me that this was clicked in Dec 1970. The occasion- my father who was then a major and the senior instructor at the Cipher Wing, MCTE, Mhow was giving a lecture on ciphers and communication security to student officers attending the higher command course at the College of Combat (presently known as Army War College). The SO-in-C Lt Gen I D Verma had also attended this talk along with the then MCTE Commandant Brig Pinto. I am sending this for posting in the blog. I feel it will take many a veteran down memory lane.
    With best wishes
    Dev Kumar Vasudevan
