Quotable Quotes – Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw


With a distinguished military career that spanned over four decades and five major wars, Field Marshal Sam Hormusji Framji Jamshedji Manekshaw (lovingly called Sam Bahadur) was undoubtedly one of the most celebrated military men in independent India.

The man under whose leadership, the brave Indian Army annihilated the Pakistani forces in 1971 was known for his bravery, courage, sense of humour and wit.

I don’t know how many of these are true. Certainly glorious myths have been built around this great man, some of them improbable, but that’s a measure of how Manekshaw was perceived by friends and foes alike.
