Major General Gagan Deep Bakshi, a true war hero, has made the headlines for reasons which expose the media houses who target true nationalists and son of the earth 2nd generation veterans like Maj Gen Bakshi who has served the nation for over 35 years. He enlisted in the Indian Army in 1971 and retired in 2008. Post retirement he is known for his aggression and his undaunted strategies based on his experience.
Countless times has Gen Bakshi shown us how to appropriately deal with nations like Pakistan and China. A man of extreme talents and diverse knowledge, the Major General has had a glorious, yet some how tragic life.
For Maj Gen G.D. Bakshi, war with Pakistan is anything but a strategic catastrophe, yet an inescapable value Pakistan must compensation for being a “pagal kutta”.”A raging pooch that circumvents gnawing everyone,” he reveals to Defensive Offensive a YouTube Channel. Bakshi lost his sibling, Captain Srishthi Raman Bakshi, in a mine blast during the India-Pakistan War of 1965. The Captain was just 23 years of age at that point. “His whole body was broken to pieces in that mine impact. Individuals gathered anything that remained and cremated his body then as it were. At that point they gave us urn with the cinders, saying ‘here, this is your sibling’,” he includes. “In the wake of inundating the remains, I was loaded up with rage. At that point, I concluded that I would join the military and render retribution for my sibling.” Five decades, a celebrated profession in the military, a PhD in military history, and two grandchildren later, the Major General’s mission for outrage has not mellowed.
Gen Bakshi has seen more war, uprising and fear based oppression than even an average soldier— he was at the China front during 1971, in Punjab at the peak of militancy in 1985, Kaksar in Kargil in 1987, Kishtwar, J&K, in 2000. His war-time experience has earned him both the Sena Medal and the Vishisht Seva Medal for his administration. On the off chance that that wasn’t sufficient, administration in Kashmir is a family inheritance. His dad, S.P. Bakshi was the central training official of the Jammu and Kashmir State Forces (6 J&K Rifles), and his brother lost his life while serving in that regiment. he says he joined the powers against his dad’s desires, who needed him to be an IAS or IFS official, and was authorized into exactly the same 6 J&K Rifles.
His military experience, be that as it may, isn’t simply confined to the front line. He was an individual from the Military Operations Directorate — an arranging body legitimately under the oversight of the Chief and Vice Chief of Army Staff. In the Ministry of Defense, Bakshi helped plan the Indian Peace Keeping Force tasks in Sri Lanka before he was sent to Siachen when pressures in the Kashmir Valley warmed up.
For him, the revulsion of war is genuine. He says that he has seen the assortments of his boys tormented to death by Pakistani militants who “get constant shelter from the state”. On the supposed human rights violations accusations by the Indian Army in Kashmir, he says the stone pelters are “them”, who deserve” no unique treatment than the remainder of the nation”. Surprisingly, the CDS Bipin Rawat has also said the same about stone pelters in Kashmir. The Major General has likewise apparently filled in as the delegate executive of the Vivekananda International Foundation close by NSA Ajit Doval
