    Brig YS Desai , AVSM

    I have known Brig YS Desai as an extremely honest officer devoted to his profession. He was loved by juniors and seniors alike, and it was a pleasure to work under his guidance.
    I had the privilege of serving under him at the height of Bangla Desh War of 1971 in 33 Corps and shall always remember the support, guidance encouragement I received from him.

    Yeshwant Desai. I remember my close association with him and his
    family when he was the deputy commandant of MCTE, mhow where i was
    posted during 1967-70. He was very humble, gentle and hospitable.
