    Brig R N Kapoor

    Dear Friends,
    I am sad to inform you about the demise of IC-8246, Brig R N Kapoor, SIGNALS, a very keen worker of IESM.
    He breathed his last at 1700 hrs on 08 Apr 10, at Bharadwaj Hospital, Noida.
    In spite of suffering from cancer, right from the inception of IESM, on 13 Aug 2008, at Noida, he had been attending every rally of IESM in NCR, till his illness made him too weak to attend any further meetings.
    He had been writing very useful letters and articles on OROP and had been meeting many politicians, executives in the MoD and officers in the Services HQs to apprise them of the feelings of the ESM and getting useful inputs from the MoD and Services HQs.
    We have lost a very sincere ESM who worked silently behind the scenes for the good of IESM and the ESM community in general.
    Next of Kin: Mrs Aruna Kapoor, wife.
    1130 hrs, on 09 Apr 10, at Noida cremation ground.
    Please also see the email below, received from Col VK Sekhri.
    Those of you who wish to write a "Shradhanjli", may kindly send it for being posted to our weblog -
    The Shradhanjli be kindly emailed to - Col James Kanagaraj, The Moderator at -
    We pray to Almighty to give peace to the departed soul and strength to all near ones and dear ones to bear this irreparable loss.
    In service of Indian Military Veterans
