    Col DS Ghonkrokta

    Dear Neena,
    All of us feel deeply aggrieved and shocked on hearing of the sad demise of our beloved coursemate Col DS Ghonkrokta, it was only a few days back that we were together, one cannot imagine that the end was so close. He put up a very brave front fighting the disease for almost 21 years,and was cheerful and full of life, it was his will determination,and your looking after, sacrifice,and all out support that helped to sustain. being also my room mate at IMA days I shall always miss him as a true friend and a role model. Not only has the Corps lost a very competent officer its a great loss for the Army as a whole. Nature has been very unkind, at this hour of distress Anju, self, Vinod Ravi Sir we are all with you and pray to the Almighty for the eternal peace of the departed soul, and to give you strength & fortitude to bear this tragic loss. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.
    In grief
