Dear Mayuresh, Shiv, Surya, Lalmohan
Thanks for the warm welcome and I appreciate the tone of friendliness.
I am a 3rd Generation Singapore Indian and my grandfathers service in the Maratha Infantry in 1937-46 was what got me to Bharat-Rakshak (thanks to google for navigating me to BR as u call it).
Currently I serve the 12th Inf. Brigade, Singapore Army. My ID for Bharat Rakshak is coined after my grandfather's frequent mention of the Maratha tactical sword called Dandpatta, of which he was an expert handler.
Mayuresh - your guess about my ID is nearly right. But I am miles away from India, the land of my ancestors. I will try to post from time to time whenever time permits.

what unit are you in. (if possible)
Do not have to be specific.
CPMF, army etc
From the name (or the inspiration thereof), I am guessing - Maratha Light Infantry
