Thanks Rakesh and the Admins.

BR and BRF has grown leaps and bounds due to your dedication and hardwork. Its informative and always a source of fascinating information about our armed forces - and at times Humour - due to the great personalities on the forum :p

The last 5 years I have been mainly lurking, occasionally posting, and met some of you fine folks at the first BR London meet. 5 years is a long time, I am out of here as well.

It was fun...

Cheers

BR represents the optimism about India. An ancient civilization and a confident nation on the move. I have watched this vision grow and become a reality from its very infancy. In a sense, I have grown too in terms of my understanding of what it means to be an Indian. For that and an inspiring vision that this site stands form, I am very thankful.

May this site grow more, attract more Indians and inspire them to believe in our nation's destiny - celebrating her glorious past, her dynamic present and an even better future. Today, I think all of us in BR can proudly say that we have created a site befitting the brave men and women of our armed forces. It is fitting that we rededicate our efforts to contribute as per our mite adn inclination towards a resurgent India. BR should inspire action!

Rakesh - Thanks for sharing your dreams. In this endeavour, I think you have earned a name for yourself which will always be gratefully remembered. Lightned of the burden, I hope to see you more often on the forum. My sincere appreciation and best wishes for the future. Your five-year old (BR)will go great guns! God bless!

Wow! Five years and the site has evolved so much. Its very good now and an authority where outside news organizations have links to BR.

To all the admins, keep up the good work.

Rakesh,

You will be missed very much. I hope you have achieved your endeavors of your education and are now moving on to bigger and better things. Remember we'll support you if you run for PM of India. :)

I know for sure I'm not going to let you off the hook for sweets when the Akula class nuke subs arrive. So please send me an email to let me know where you are!

Sincerely,

Rajiv...

Ok I can sense the emotion on this thread and for not wanting it to turn out like bollywood script, I’ll keep it short.
Being an NRI and having seen India only once in the last 16 years, BR has just been incredible, a resource and wealth of material on India and its armed forces that over the years has turned me into a real patriot.
Some of its members have been nothing short of role models, Shiv, Kaushal, ArunS, Nitin are just some of the names of numerous members that come to mind and whose posts have been……for lack of a better word….amazing, spuring me on to read more.
Its been a great sense of community and barring time constraints I’d spend days living and posting here…...
Thanks Rakesh and Good Luck,

Congratulatins to each and everyone, who is behind this awesome place. I call this a place because this is where I spend most of my online hours at, hanging out, learning and educating myself.

Guys, I have been lurking around for the last few months, but it feels like I'm a BRite since ages.

Back to the point, once again Congratulations and Thanks to everyone of you for this great site.

God Bless us all, God Bless India!!!

Jai Hind!

Great Job Rakesh! All the best in the future.

A question about the July updates:
Regarding the army senior officers list, the new appointments for deputy chiefs dont take place until Aug 31st and some of the new corps commanders are not promoted to Lt. Gen's until mid august :D

Typo or just covering up for Sep 1 Updates :cool:

Congrats to the BR team!

I have been lurking on the forum since summer 98' and finally took the plunge late 98'.

Any sign of an IPO anytime soon? Better get a honest accountant first.
