He was simply perfect as a Commandant of the ITBP Academy in Mussoorie. Tall, patrician and breathtakingly elegant. When he spoke, everything else froze. When he wore the uniform, everyone else looked diminished. When he walked around, he owned the locale.
Today during our morning run, I came across him near the ITBP premises. And what he said is perhaps the best compliment for me ever~"O, You are fitter than before boy!". When such words come from someone you have always looked up to, it means so much to us. After that, the rest of the run was effortless as if I was flying. ITBP, reloaded!
