Re: Indian Army: News & Discussion

What compromise can there possibly be? The General says his date of birth is 1951. The government, for some reason, wishes it to be 1950. Where does the compromise happen? That he was born at the end of 1950, or beginning of 1951? Looks like govt is very keen to receive an anda on its face.
