The job of an army man was considered cosy because we did not fight a war since 1971. However we sent peace keeping forces all over the world, and a few jawans would have lost their lives there. Also some army men would have been killed in Kashmir, North East, and some smaller operations in varius parts of the country.
However the job of a CRPF jawan was not considerd risky. So it was a nice pensionable job with the central government and not very difficult job.
However Kashmir, and now the Maoists have changed all that.
The CRPF jawan is not well trained (unlike his army counterpart), not as well protected by intelligence, – and left to the maoists. Even in Kashmir all the politicians are blaming the CRPF (except Omar Abdullah who said the security forces are only doing their job, there is nothing personal). Why we cannot use very powerful cameras to capture the stone throwers and then ask people to socially ostracize them beats me. Stone throwing is not done by some children – these guys seem to have been trained. How long do we expect the CRPF jawan to go an give up his life to the Maoists and the Kashmiri terrorists?
Salutations to the jawans who do their duty, cannot even talk to the over zealous press (happy to condemn anything that the government does, and support the ‘rebels’), and get killed. Kudos. If I had a choice, like Ayn Rand, my advice would be to just shrug.
