He is Muslim, I can make out M.M. Khan on his name tag. Reason i'm asking is because I don't remember seeing folks with a proper beard in the Army.
Besides, I remember folks here mentioning in some of the other threads about a reason for no beard.

I have been told that special forces & COIN troops grow beards to blend in. Someone correct me if I am wrong. I do not know if he is one, but just saying. And if he is in uniform now, is because the PM is on the scene.

Special forces can grow beards and we have seen many special forces including marcos, para's growing beards. There may be two reasons for doing so a) Blend with the local crowd b) look menacing.

At the tri-service Andaman & Nicobar Command Headquarters with Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today, on Diwali festival.

I could be wrong, but I believe that is Lt Governor Adm DK Joshi Joshi (Retd) standing right next to the Raksha Mantri.

Major General (Retd) Sheonan Singh on the Right Hand Side.

Little Known Fact, he is the nephew of Shaheed Bhagat Singh. His father was Bhagat Singh's younger brother.
And Major Sheonan served with my father in Sri Lanka.

Ajai Shukla takes offense to Modi wearing Army Camo.

Image
It's a criminal offence, Mr @narendramodi, to impersonate a soldier in uniform. The only uniform you've the right to wear is khaki knickers.
https://twitter.com/ajaishukla/status/921694886205595648

I don't get his point and then I read his second sentence which shows that his anti BJP stand is clouding his ability to remember so I am going to help him.
The only two things I will say in my Modi's defense is
- that he is not wearing rank, just the camo
- he wore this dress in a highly dangerous area where the Div Commander can impose the camo on him for security purposes.

Shukla is a libtard ( self-admission ) and hence he searches for non-issues. There are indeed issues we can criticize BJP on for e.g. failure to do more indigenization or lack of R&D investments - But this is an absolute non-issue.

Thank you @Rakesh.
By the way the shot of the C130 landing just on its front wheel (I mean the split seconds while just the front is in touchdown mode) is equally impressive.

I think the right handside wheelset may have touched down.

That is a MICA missile on KT212. That means she is the upgraded Mirage 2000I.

Any IAF Mirage-2000 with a grey radome is an upgraded Mirage-2000I/TI. And any Mirage-2000 with a grey radome WITH a pitot probe is an IAF Mirage-2000I/TI.

Is that still in service I thought every other Mig-21 other than Bison was out of service.

UM is the trainer version. They will have to stay in service till we operate any Mig-21 version I guess to train new pilots.

^^^^ One of the first things the Air Chief did - after he took over as Chief - is fly a MiG-21M solo. He may not need to be uber fit (lean) like the fighter jocks. At that rank, 99% of the time he will be sitting behind a desk.

I believe he is advising the president - in that photo - about formation flying, which they do at IAF Day (assuming that is where that picture was taken).

The discovery of human remains near a small town in northern France last year sparked a search that quickly spread half-way across the globe. The two men, it turned out, were Indian soldiers who died on French battlefields more than 100 ago during World War One.
They were finally laid to rest this month, in a ceremony especially poignant for the Indian diaspora in France.

Despite the extra pounds, he has flown the most solo among the last few CAS hasn't he?
As the good Adm pointed out, among the first things he did after getting the 4th star was fly his beloved bison.
