    Maj Gen SC Kashyap

    Dear Colleagues,
    I have just learnt of the sad demise of one of our dear members, Maj Gen SC Kashyap, AVSM**. He passed away at Chandigarh on 17 Nov 2010. Known for his clarity of thought and conceptual grasp, he was a thinking soldier. He was a very active member of the IESM and contributed greatly to our policies and planning. His departure has left a great void. We pray for peace for his soul. On this sad occasion we fully share the grief of the family.
    Best regards,
    Lt Gen (Emeritus) Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
    Chairman IESM

    Dear Sir,
    This is regarding passing away of Maj Gen SC Kashyap.
    He was a Good man and Excellent officer. I had known him as Cdr 61 Bde at Imphal when I was commanding the Sig Regt in Nagaland and later as GOC Delhi Area when I was commanding the Sig Gp at Delhi.
    His son is a Signals officer. They created history when Gen Kashyap was taking the salute and his son was leading the Signals contingent at a Parade in Delhi I think in 2000.
    Our condolences to the family .
    Madhav Datar
    Lt Gen MG Datar (Retd)
