A close friend of three decades is a Brigadier and a true officer and a gentleman. He sent me a link of a write-up published in ‘THE CITIZEN IS YOU’ online daily, titled ‘A Requiem For the Martyrs’ by Lt. Gen. Syed Ata Hasnain, a much decorated retired officer who was known for his “Hearts is my weapon” campaign in J&K as a healing touch initiative for the troubled state.
