    Lt Gen K Balaram PVSM

    We Cannot see a forthright & True Signalman-Soldier Better than Him. An upright fearless Officer- an embodiment of Mastery in all Military Matters. WE Pray for his soul to rest in Peace.

    Dear Sir,
    We pray to The Almighty to give peace to the departed soul of General Balaram and strength to all dear and near ones to bear this irreparable loss.

    It is with great turbulence I learn the sad demise of Lt Gen K Balaram PVSM, an epitome of high principals and high values in Army. With his passing away not only the Corps of Signals but the Army has lost a devout soldier General. I had brief interactions with him on couple of occasions and am unable to forget his concern for all. We pray that his soul rests in peace and God grant strength to his family members to bear the loss.

    Pl convey my heart felt condolences to all members of Late Gen Balaram's family.
    Although I am not from Corps of Signals, Gen Balaram & we were neighbours, living next door to each other, when he was posted in Army HQ as a Lt Gen. His presence will be missed by all of us especially when it is needed most.
