    Must hurt you guys, first training these people, spending money on them only to lose them to be tortured to death by PA. No wonder Indian public has lost faith in its military, as per your def. minister. Tell them to go back hunting pigeons and planets and making 3rd class movies and scripts which even they cant believe how bad their acting is. Btw, your name doesnt fool us, it reeks of Indian spices.Recommend
