The command-3

The command-3
Ganesan started local enquiries about missing personnel in that areas.ITBP(Indo-Tibetian Border Police) and local people revealed different stories.whan a person is physically exhausted especially in high altitude areas he reaches a state of hallucination(illusion)and in that state he will be in  state of transe and walks freely without any perception of danger and may fall thousands of feet down.A normal person will not go to such an edge in search of him.ITBP people confirmed such loss of persons.
   In the mean time Ganesan callled the family members of that missing person and did further enquiries.with all these feedback Ganesan decided that
declaring him as deserter will not be correct.He should be declared as "Missing".since the case was closed earlier Ganesan wrote an application to Adjutant General  of the Indian Army stating all the facts.The difference between desertion and missing are like this;Desertion is an offence and the unit has to search for him.All the family allotment of the jawan will be stopped immediately.The desertion was only a presumption and not a confirmed fact.compared to this missing is like an accident and still the unit will keep searching for him;but the family allotment will not be stopped.For 10 years this process will continue and if the person is still not traced,he will be presumed to be dead.All the benifits of dead will go to the family.
so Ganesan sent an application through proper channel to Adjutant General at Army head quarters.It is needless to mention that up the channel no one supported the case as the Div commander already counter signed "derertion".About a month might have passed.one fine morning letter came from AHQ stating that "inthe light of commanding officer's explanation,the case be treated as missing and the findings of the court of enquiry be re written as MISSING.It was the first success step taken by Ganesan
More to continue....
