    What a great pity. I wish I had known earlier. I would have gone and paid my and our Sappers personal respects not only to him but also to other brave local Nagas and Manipuris martyrs quite a few times as I was in command of a Company of Engineers in Manipur for nearly three years till the 1971 Indo-Pak War. The Nagas and the Manipuris are wonderful people but as things stood very unfortunate.
