The Making of an Officer

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough, Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo”

At Rissala we use the word “Balanced” before “Successful”. Balanced means ensuring your Health, Relationships, Mental peace are all in good order, Said Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion.

(There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your break-up. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions) , Said Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion.

“Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same is with life where Health and Relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.

So what goes into the making of a dedicated and sincere soldier, especially in the face of the pomp & glitter of civil life all around him; a civilian’s life that has lesser working hours and better money, and yet seems riddled with scams and corruption? It is primarily the training he receives and the pride he takes in his uniform – which he imbibes during his training. This is what makes him stand out – makes him different. Life doesn’t come to you. You have to go out and get it.

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that, To become an Army Officer, you have a number of options, which can be exercised as soon as you complete your Higher Secondary – but are open even for Post Graduates. You can join the National Defence Academy (NDA) at Khadakvasla, the Officers Training Academy (OTA) at Chennai (and now also at Gaya) or the Indian Military Academy (IMA) at Dehra Dun. The duration and specialization of training varies at each of these locations, but the ultimate aim is to mould a civilian student into a Gentleman Cadet (GC) and eventually into an Officer of one of the finest Armies of the world. The Entrance to any of the above Institutions is through a Written Test, conducted by UPSC, and this is followed by an elaborate selection process conducted by the Service Selection Board (SSB). The aim of SSB is to select candidates who have the abilities and qualities to be good leaders, irrespective of their backgrounds. ‘Officer-like’ qualities are given preference.  Some of the options available to a person wishing to join the Army as an Officer are: (see table)

 Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that, Once you have cleared the Selection process and the Medical Examination, all you have to wait for is the Merit List and your Call Letter. Hereafter starts the process of making you an Officer. If you have been selected to join the NDA, after doing your Higher Secondary, you are one of those lucky ones who will be undergoing a three-year Training cum Degree course at one of the finest Academies of the world. Be it the accommodation, the training area, the Peacock Lake, the Sudan Block or the Cadets Mess – which can serve a sit-down meal to over 2,000 cadets – the NDA has it all. This is also the only Academy that trains cadets for all three Services (Air Force, Navy & Army). After their three years’ basic training, the Cadets move to their respective Academies for specialized training, for their Passing Out as Officers. The Naval cadets go to the Naval Academy Ezhimala in Kerala, the Air Force cadets to the Air Force Academy at Hyderabad and the Army cadets to the Indian Military Academy (IMA) at Dehra Dun.

The IMA was established in 1932, on a sprawling 200 acres’ Campus and trains Cadets for Permanent Commission into various branches of the Army. It imparts specialized and practical training in different types of Warfare. For this, it has a specially selected staff, state-of-the-art equipment and a modern infrastructure. The Gentlemen Cadets (GCs) learn the art of Warfare, Tactics, Sports and Tactical Exercises, to enhance their endurance levels – so that they are ready to face all types of challenges and opportunities. The Chetwode Hall is the main Headquarters of the Academy and houses the Administration. The Academy’s infrastructure includes: the Khertrapal Auditorium, a Central Library, Drill Square (Parade Ground), a Golf Course, Somnath Stadium, the Salaria Aquatic Centre, Stables, Rissala Polo Grounds, a Stud Farm and a Small-Arms Shooting Range. The trainees at the Academy are called Gentleman Cadets as they are expected to uphold the highest ethical and moral values. The words of Field Marshal Chetwode , as inscribed on the walls of the  Chetwode Hall, are the credo for every GC passing out of the Academy:

 Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that, ‘The safety, honour and welfare of your country come first,

always and every time.
The honour, welfare and comfort of the men you command come next.
Your own ease, comfort and safety come last, always and every time’

(I wish this could be the oath for every Minister/Leader).

The training at IMA is grueling, tough and fast-paced. The GCs have to be transformed into mentally and physically robust soldiers. They are expected to earn the respect and unflinching loyalty of the men they command and develop the capability of leading them proudly into war with utter disregard for their own life. Human Resource theories would be hard-pressed to develop a template for such a task and response. The first change that you feel is your haircut – you may even fail to recognize yourself in the mirror. You are issued a bike, as you need to be mobile at all times. And yes, you are mobile many a times while running with your bike on your head! Each Cadet is allotted a cabin and a set of uniforms, clothing and an equipment kit. The daily routine starts with PT and Drill classes, with a break for change and Breakfast. This one-hour break feels like 3 hours, for you are expected to accomplish so much within it. You rush from Drill Square to the Kote to deposit your rifle, go to the Mess for Breakfast, bathe and change into the Dress for the next class – always rushing to be on time. That Class could be at one of the outdoor Stands, which are 2 to 3 kms away and your bike may be off the road – or maybe you cannot ride it if you are not part of a squad. After lunch is either Siesta or punishment time (for the defaulters). Games are well-organised. All games in which soldiers participate (Troop Games) – like Boxing, Cross Country Run, Basketball, Football, Hockey and Aquatics – are compulsory. Company-level competitions are held at 4 to 5 levels, so that every GC gets a chance to participate and represent his Company. Evening Fall-In, for the passing of Orders, is followed by Dinner. A lot more goes on in between to keep everyone busy.

The PT ‘Ustaads’ – a Naik/Havaldar/Rissaldar is addressed as ‘Ustaad’ and a JCO as ‘Sahab’, as a mark of respect to the instructors, even though they rank below Officer levels – with their red stockings are the most dreaded sight on the PT Field. They task is to ensure that your body becomes well-groomed for maximum endurance.  PT Tests consist of a One-mile Run, Push-ups, Sit-ups, Rope Climbing, Horse Work and Dive Roll. The levels of achievement are laid down and marked accordingly. For example, to attain a ‘Satisfactory’ level in Rope Climbing, you may use your legs; but for being marked ‘Good’, you can only use your hands; and for ‘Excellent’, the legs need to be in an L- shaped position. Such standards are set for all outdoor Tests. A GC has to pass his PT Tests in every term (6 months). The Russian Obstacle Training Course is a special treat, and in the Inter-Company competitions held for this Course every GC has to participate for his Team – so even the ‘weakest’ has to be capable of crossing each obstacle.Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that,  The PT ‘Ustaad’ firmly believes that at no time should both your feet be touching the ground! If he feels that the Cadets need some ‘easy time’, he makes them play games like ‘four touch’ – where you have to run and touch the four different corners of the PT Field. It gets better. The fastest 2 or 3 are allowed to ‘sit out’, and the rest are asked to continue the ‘running game’. Another popular game is a team game whereby each member of the team, by turn, has to climb up and down a vertical rope. It is important to win, and therefore you don’t mind the blisters on your hands. The ropes are never knotted; it’s taboo – unlike those that you see in the TV Reality Shows. Every GC has to take part in a Boxing bout in his first term – its called Novices Boxing. Another important part of the training is the Battle Proficiency Endurance Training (BPET) Tests. These have to be passed in each term and require lots of practice. The dress for these Tests is the Battle Dress (dangree with all packs), consisting of a back-pack & a side-pack (with about 30 kgs weight inside), a water bottle, ammunition pouches, boots, anklets – and of course the Rifle. The other Tests are the 9 feet Ditch, Horizontal Rope, Vertical Rope, Fireman’s Lift (lifting another Cadet on your back and running). In our time we had a 10-miles (16kms) Run; it was like a full-length film – never-ending and without an interval. Fortunately it is has been stopped now. However, there is still a 5km Run – and this has to completed within a certain time. You keep appearing for these Tests till you pass. I remember a foreign cadet of my Company who undertook the 16 kms Run 10 times in his final term, in order to pass – else he would have been ‘relegated’ for another 6 months.

The Drill ‘Ustaads’ literally drill a sense of discipline into the GCs, both on the Drill Square and off it, because they monitor your every move and have the authority to recommend punishments. They exercise this authority quite liberally! Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that,  To them the Drill Square (Parade Ground) is a ‘temple’, and you cannot step on it if you are not properly dressed – and if your behavior is not impeccable. Here you learn various forms of Drill (Cane, Rifle and Sword Drills, Drill without arms, Ceremonial Drills). The Drills instil in you a sense of teamwork & team spirit, co-ordination, discipline, regimentation and, above all, a pride in the Uniform. The Rifle you carry is like your wife – always well-maintained, cared for and protected! The correct use of various accoutrements is a basic tenet of wearing a Uniform. Every Ribbon worn on the chest signifies a seniority and must be worn right. If it has the Tricolour, the saffron band has to be on the right side. The seniority is as per the order of precedence of the medals and must be shown accordingly. Similarly, the fifth point of the brass star, on the rank badges, has to always be pointing upwards; the badge on the beret has to be aligned to the left eye; the buckle on the belt has to align with the shirt buttons; and the (shoe) laces have to be without any ‘twists’. Such rules are applicable to each type of Uniform. 

A Cadet also learns the traditions of the Military. While it is a matter of pride to pass the Drill Test the soonest, the duties of the Drill ‘Ustaads’ do not end at the Drill Square – for they have to ensure that the Cadets are equally disciplined off the Drill Square. Cycling/marching in squads to classes or the Mess, proper conduct and dress when visiting the town on ‘liberties’, a proper haircut each week, and a high standard of uniforms and boots, is expected – and ensured by the ‘Ustaads’. They also examine the works of the civilian orderlies. ‘Ustaads’ are omnipresent and will quietly approach you to note down your details, if anything is found amiss. You may find them walking next to you in the town and whispering that your tie is not properly knotted, or telling you that you are in an ‘out-of-bounds’ area. Their zest for discipline is so great that at times it may sound ludicrous.Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that,  A GC was charge sheeted for being ‘naked’ on Parade, because he had a small hole in his trousers; another was charged as ‘unshaven’ on Parade merely because his side locks were below the upper ear lobe! Well, that may sound like ‘humour in uniform’, but it is not very humorous when it turns into a ‘Restriction’ (a punishment whereby you have to: do strenuous exercises in the afternoon, are not allowed any outings, and have to attend a ‘roll call’ before ‘lights out’ – in proper uniform – at the Drill Square). Horse Riding has always been considered very important, for it was said in the good old days that those who can control a horse can control the world. The moment you get on a horse, he knows if you can control him. Horses are never kind to GCs – especially on Mondays, after a day’s rest. It is not uncommon to see a horse taking a cadet ‘for a ride’, in every class. Bribing the horse with ‘gur’ rarely helps. Riding and Bn Polo was made compulsory under Colonel Ajay Ahlawat famously known as ‘Ally’ from the cavalry. 

Swimming is another must at the Academy. Learning to swim is a simple exercise. You are just pushed into the pool, along with an ‘Ustaad’, and have no option but to cross over – or drown. All obviously opt for the first option. A jump from the 10-meter high board is a great test of your confidence – in self -drowning. The difficult part is in coming down – not coming up. Tactical Exercises, Camps, Route Marches, Map-Reading Exercises, Field Craft and normal theory subjects like Military Etiquettes, Military History, English and Foreign Languages are some of the important learning areas. Training is a continuous process and never seems to end. Every meal in the Cadets’ Mess is also a part of it. Breakfast has to completed in 10 minutes and Lunch eats into your afternoon Siesta. ‘Dinner Nights’ in the Army are not meals, but Parades. Every activity is measured by the clock. The first call of the Bugle signals you to get ready, the second calls you to enter the Mess for Drinks, and the third calls you to enter the Dining Hall. Every course of the meal is served with a Military Band playing – and again, to the minute. Eating has to be synchronized   with the ‘President’, and a ‘toast’ is always ‘raised’ with water. In 15 minutes or so the ritual is over and the tummy is supposed to be full. For the juniors these 15 minutes are torturous, with the seniors sitting nearby ensuring that you know which side to keep the bread, how to use the fork & knife, do not converse across the table, talk in low tones, ‘close’ the plate (even if still full) once the senior has done so – and always remember the Drill associated with ‘raising a toast’.

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion said that,  All the tough training comes handy while in Service. As the saying goes, ‘The more you sweat in Peace, the less you bleed in War’. Every moment spent at the Academy is memorable, every advice of the ‘Ustaads’ is a blessing and every part of the training ‘a brick in the wall’ in the making of a Soldier. The aim of this article is not to scare away young aspirants who want to join the Armed Forces, but to tell them that while six packs and muscles can be built in a gym, the building of mental and physical toughness and endurance comes through sincere and dedicated hard work  – there are no short cuts. This separates the ‘Soldiers’ from the ‘Boys’. It is only after you join your Force that you realize that there is no Service like the Armed Forces – and why you always stand apart.

“The human factor will decide the fate of war, of all wars. Not the Mirage, nor any other plane, and not the screwdriver, or the wrench or radar or missiles or all the newest technology and electronic innovations. Men—and not just men of action, but men of thought. Men for whom the expression ‘By ruses shall ye make war’ is a philosophy of life, not just the object of lip service.”

“The thundering of hooves, the fluttering of pennants, the snorting of Horses, the jingling of chains,  glittering drawn swords , the erect posture of the Cavaliers, their magnificent attire.  A sight which will remain imprinted in our minds for years to come.  This is what the Rissala was and is all about”. Rissala today strives to keep the ancient traditions alive being a link between the past and the present.

Most haunted Place of India : 
In our childhood we have heard several kinds of blood-curdling ghost stories and these haunted stories still scare us as nightmares. If this is not enough to believe then let us brief you about few best haunted places like Delhi Cantt, Dumas Beach in Gujarat and many more in India but Bhangarh is the most HAUNTED place that would definitely give you a real jolt. 

 

Rissala Polo of Colonel Ajay Ahlawat polo- About BHANGARH FORT
Bhangarh Fort is situated 10 Km from Rissala Polo Camp on the border of Sariska Tiger reserve in the Oldest Hill range of the world – Aravalli range in the deserted town of Bhangarh, Rajasthan. Bhangarh is a ruined town in Sariska. Bhangarh fort is a major tourist attraction and is said to be one of the most haunted historical places in the world. Many myths are related with this haunted fort. 

 

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat polo Bhangarh town was established in 1573 by King Bhagwant Das who had two sons. His elder son was Man Singh, the famous General of Mughal Emperor Akbar and the younger one was Madho Singh. Bhagwant Das developed Bhangarh as the residence of his younger son Madho Singh who lived and ruled Bhangarh his whole life. Madho Singh named the city after his grandfather Man Singh who was also known as Bhan Singh and now the city is recognised as ” Bhangarh”. 

 

Bhangarh Kila was established in 1613 and built by King Madho Singh and the town of Bhangarh was established by Bhagwant Das. Bhangarh Fort might be famed for its haunted and mysterious presence but it can be visited as a place that is beautiful and pleasant. People say, Bhangarh fort is not for the easily frightened (faint-hearted) people. It is rated as the most haunted place in the whole of India. India also has some other world’s most haunted places. In fact, if have you ever thought that India was a country of several Gods and Goddess then you can be in for a surprise that India has a dark and spooky side as well. Those people who like to visit haunted places should definitely visit Bhangarh Fort that has its own status of being one of the most haunted places in India, Said Colonel Ajay Ahlawat. 

 

Why Bhangarh Fort/Kila is rumored to be haunted and what are the folklores behind this “HAUNTED FORT” – Ajay Ahlawat?


There is a belief about Bhangarh that the place is haunted and no one can dare to go there after sunset. Several ghost stories are behind the mysteries of the Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan. Out of the numerous stories about Bhangarh fort one that is most prevalent is that the Bhangarh city was build by King Madho Singh. For this city, the Emperor got approval by ascetic Guru Balu Nath who meditated at this place. The approval was given on the condition that the shadow of emperor’s palace would never touch him at his prohibited retreat. If shadow touched over his place, the city would turn into ruins. The emperor started his fort construction with his money and strength. The Bhangarh fort was constructed with several stories and finally shadowed the prohibited retreat of Guru Balu Nath. 
As per psychic power of Saint, the entire town was destroyed and ever since any construction around the crushed location or palace faces collapse. The samadhi of Guru Balu Nath is still there where he was buried, Said Ajay Ahlawat polo. 

One other myth as verified by Colonel Ajay Ahlawat from Rissala Polo is as follows: 

Ratnavati was the princess of Bhangarh and was famed for her stately beauty all over her own kingdom and the neighboring states. By the time the princess turned 18 years old, she started getting matrimonial offers from diffrent states. There was a tantrik called Singhia, who was completely smitten by her but knew that his match was impossible with the princess. But Singhia(a tantrik) under the spell of glorious beauty of The Princess decided to decoy the princess with his magical powers(jadu). One day Singhia saw the princess’s maid in the market. So he thought, he’ll marry the princess by using black magic on the oil that the maid was purchasing so that upon touching it, the princess would surrender herself to magician. However, the princess saw the Sanghia Tantrik trick that he was enchanting the oil. So the princess poured the oil on to the ground. The oil on ground turned into a rock and rolled towards the magician and crushed him ( Singhia ). Before dying, the magician cursed the Bhangarh city to death and said there will be no more rebirths. After this incident, the curse showed its results in a the battle between Bhangarh and Ajabgarh, where Ratnavati was assassinated. However, some local folk stories tell that the princess has taken a rebirth somewhere else and the bhangarh fort is waiting for her return and end the sadistic curse. According to the folk tales, Bhangarh fort is the dwelling of ghosts and that is why entry is prohibited for tourists or visitors in the fort before sunrise and after sunset, Said Retd. Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo. 

Rissala Polo – What happens in Bhangarh at night :

According to different local tales, no one is allowed to hangout in the scary Bhangarh fort premises once the sun sets. Therefore, tight restrictions have been imposed at bhangarh fort…. you have to leave the fort at the given time ( in the evening 6 pm) before dusk. The fort’s main entrance is locked and Government has placed a notice board at the main gate which reads that ” visiting the fort before sunrise and after sunset is strictly prohibited and if rules are violated legal action would be taken“. 
There is a rumor that spirits roam in Bhangarh Fort at night. People often hear strange noises ( screaming, crying voice of women, bangles sound in the rooms) and they reported many weird and scarcely credible incidents like some one’s talking and a special smell is felt. Such kind of weird incidents are reported in the fort after dusk. People have seen ghostly shadow, strange lights, unusual sound of music and dance coming from the bhangarh fort. It is said that whoever entered in the fort after sunset and stayed there for a night, will not return from the fort next morning. 


Real Haunted stories -Tourist Experiences by Rissala Polo Of Colonel Ajay Ahlawat –

  1. Story told by Masoom Bhargav:I am from Alwar and Bhangarh is in the municipality of Alwar district. Since childhood I have heard various stories about Bhangarh but I would like to quote one. This story was told by my father. We went there when I was 9 years old so I don’t remember much but according to my father when our family was walking near the fort of Bhangarh we saw a man who was talking to himself. Being a child I wanted to ask him who he was talking to but my father resisted. While coming back we saw that man again. He was walking by my side. He was telling us the real story behind Bhangarh.
    My father tried to get rid of him but he was desperate to tell us the story. He was old therefore he was walking slowly. My father carried me and tried to walk fast to get rid of him. (You must be thinking how cruel we were because we didn’t try to help that old person but I would like to mention that we gave him food on the first meeting but later on some local people warned us.) My father’s plan worked and we were far ahead of him but the strangest thing that happened was when we looked back to see whether he was following us or not he disappeared… You must be thinking I am joking but the people behind us told us there was nobody following us. 
    NO OLD MAN BEHIND US!! MY FATHER WAS CONFUSED. There are so much horrifying incidents related to this haunted fort…. SOME SAID HE WAS A GHOST BUT I DON’T THINK SO. Neither I, nor my father know where he went. We went back to the place where we first met him. He was not there…Strange but true… Colonel Ajay Ahlawat (Colonel Ally)

  2. It really happened with me and my frnds in bhangarh at night. After 12 my friends and I decided to go Bhangarh and stay inside the fort in night. Anyway I am from Jaipur and doing 2nd year. So around 7pm we reached there (little before sunset) and around 8.30pm we were in the fort and seriously the location, atmosphere, air everything was very scary, around 12.30am we all decided to leave fort. That time we all were around 20-21 people (friends and some other villagers) so just after main gate all my friends and those people heard female shouting voice from fort, but me and my two friends didn’t hear that sound. So we all start running after some distance we stopped and discussing it then suddenly a wall like thing fell in front of us so we again started running then finally we crossed final gate. So guys there is something wrong in this fort…… (story was taken from a blog)
  3. Guests from Switzerland and Germany staying at Rissala Polo Camp visited the fort and while taking pictures have photographic proof of a lady standing behind them in over six pictures whereas there was no-one there. this was experienced by the group and covered in pictures taken there. They had spent over 6 hrs there but never saw that lady in the pictures.
  4. It’s been noticed by many guests of Rissala polo that the drinking water carried by them there always turn cold and tastes sweet. this has been noticed by many other visitors across the board.

Lesson to Learn from Men who Gossip about Friends, Colleagues, Relatives, Son’s Friends by Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo

Lesson to Learn from Men who Gossip about Friends, Colleagues, Relatives, Son’s Friends and the list goes on…. Blog by Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion from Rissala Polo.

Colonel Ally Said that you do one thing. First you grow up. Because, if you grow up means, automatically your son will grow up. And when your son is growing up, give him an advice. Now don’t give that confused look and all. Seriously, give him an advice. Along with that, give him a lot of free advice. Don’t think that he won’t take it. Give it anyway, he will eventually take it.

Col Ally Said that  tell your son to go out with the girls. Tell him to give them hugs and high-fives and ask them to go out on day trips and have fun. Tell him to make as many friends as possible and not necessary that they HAVE to be on facebook and tell him that to retain any relation, never GOSSIP.

 Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him that he can talk about what he likes or dislikes about someone in front of them, and if he finds him or her stupid, then mention that also. Tell your son that it is ok to feel bad about something someone did to him but tell him never to discuss this with someone else except the concerned person. Tell him that everybody needs money to survive but never sit and discuss how he earned money in a wrong way, instead tell him that the person slogged his ass out day and night saving and sacrificing everything to get that one flat in South Delhi because he wanted to see his mom smile always. 

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Said that tell your son to read have some fun. In fact, if possible, you only give a copy of “How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-founded a Million Dollar Company” to him. He won’t understand any of it anyway, but still give it to him. 

 Retd. Colonel Ajay Ahlawat Polo Champion Said that ask him to log on to Facebook and have a chat with a random person on the other end. A small hello or a hi would make a difference to the other person who may be just as lonely as he is. And if he doesn’t reply it doesn’t mean he tells his friends that he is a bad guy or got some wrong attitude. Even if he is ignoring tell him that its Human Nature to ignore. BUT NEVER GOSSIP.

Ajay Ahlawat Said that  tell him to fall in love with a woman (or a man). Tell him to go head-over-heels (or something like that) about her. Tell him to admire her beauty. Actually, tell him to admire the beauty of all women. Tell him that they are single most source of joy on the planet and that without them the world is nothing. Tell him that the girl may not feel the same for him, may have aspirations, ambitions and that does not MAKE HER A BITCH, infact by him saying that he may become one himself.

 Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him that when his friends start to discuss people, walk away or leave such friends, usually the quiet one gets the blame for saying nothing. Tell him to avoid people who start conversations with “I HEARD….”  Tell him not to encourage people to tell things about someone else to him. A man may have cheated 5 people at the same time, tell him God is watching and will take care of everything, by him saying that, the lost amount can never be recovered.

Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him not to watch those television channels where 8 people are sitting on different parts of the screen and discussing Poonam Pandey, tell him they are fuck all jobless people who masturbate at photo shopped images of Poonam Pandey. Tell him that if needs to enquire about someone, its better to spend three days or months or years, but never conclude because she cries at the drop of a hat or smiles without a reason, she is that way and will be that way…

Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him to go for morning walks and not morning gossips, it ruins your health, time and energy because those gossips would later demand explanations and also if found to be untrue, there is a law for character assassination and he can go behind bars.

Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him that people who sit and gossip also land up on hospital beds for months, years and sometimes die because nobody likes them after a while. Remember the tree in King Solomon’s Mines???

Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him that even broken hearts can be mended but he cannot mend the lost morality of any man at any cost.

Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him that gossiping is a Sin for which Man will have to pay a heavy price. A very heavy price.

Ajay Ahlawat Said that tell him that gossiping will land him to be all alone, may be not initially but eventually.

Retd. colonel Ajay Ahlawat says while a man was polishing his new car, his 6 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. When the child saw his father…..with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times. Devastated by his own actions…….sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.

Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life….. Things are to be used and people are to be loved. But the problem in today’s world is that, People are used and things are loved…. In this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind: Things are to be used, but People are to be loved.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits they become character; Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Do u know the relationship between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together & sleep together. Even though they never see each other.

Tell him that he can talk about what he likes or dislikes about someone in front of them, and if he finds him or her stupid, then mention that also. Tell your son that it is ok to feel bad about something someone did to him but tell him never to discuss this with someone else except the concerned person. Tell him that everybody needs money to survive but never sit and discuss how he earned money in a wrong way, instead tell him that the person slogged his ass out day and night saving and sacrificing everything to get that one flat in South Delhi because he wanted to see his mom smile always. 

 Colonel Ajay Ahlawat  –

Tell your son to read have some fun. In fact, if possible, you only give a copy of “How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-founded a Million Dollar Company” to him. He won’t understand any of it anyway, but still, give it to him. 

 Colonel Ajay Ahlawat  –

Ask him to log on to Facebook and have a chat with a random person on the other end. A small hello or a hi would make a difference to the other person who may be just as lonely as he is. And if he doesn’t reply it doesn’t mean he tells his friends that he is a bad guy or got some wrong attitude. Even if he is ignoring tell him that its Human Nature to ignore. BUT NEVER GOSSIP.

 

Tell him to fall in love with a woman (or a man). Tell him to go head-over-heels (or something like that) about her. Tell him to admire her beauty. Actually, tell him to admire the beauty of all women. Tell him that they are a single most source of joy on the planet and that without them the world is nothing. Tell him that the girl may not feel the same for him, may have aspirations, ambitions and that does not MAKE HER A BITCH, in fact by him saying that he may become one himself.

 Colonel Ajay Ahlawat  –

Tell him that when his friends start to discuss people, walk away or leave such friends, usually the quiet one gets the blame for saying nothing. Tell him to avoid people who start conversations with “I HEARD….”  Tell him not to encourage people to tell things about someone else to him. A man may have cheated 5 people at the same time, tell him God is watching and will take care of everything, by him saying that, the lost amount can never be recovered.

 

Tell him not to watch those television channels where 8 people are sitting on different parts of the screen and discussing Poonam Pandey, tell him they are fuck all jobless people who masturbate at photoshopped images of Poonam Pandey. Tell him that it needs to inquire about someone, it’s better to spend three days or months or years, but never conclude because she cries at the drop of a hat or smiles without a reason, she is that way and will be that way…

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat –

Tell him to go for morning walks and not morning gossips, it ruins your health, time and energy because those gossips would later demand explanations and also if found to be untrue, there is a law for character assassination and he can go behind bars.

 

Tell him that people who sit and gossip also land up on hospital beds for months, years and sometimes die because nobody likes them after a while. Remember the tree in King Solomon’s Mines???

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat

Tell him that even broken hearts can be mended but he cannot mend the lost morality of any man at any cost.

 

Tell him that gossiping is a Sin for which Man will have to pay a heavy price. A very heavy price.

 

Tell him that gossiping will land him to be all alone, maybe not initially but eventually…

Rissala way to – Live & Die

By Colonel Ajay Ahlawat

Colonel Ajay Ahlawat
Colonel Ajay Ahlawat


(Ajay Ahlawat)I’ve often thought about what it is that makes people happy—what one has to do in order to achieve happiness.

1- First and foremost is good health. If you do not enjoy good health, you can never be happy. Any ailment, however trivial, will deduct something from your happiness.

2- A healthy bank balance. It need not run into crores, but it should be enough to provide for comforts, and there should be something to spare for recreation—eating out, going to the movies, travel and holidays in the hills or by the sea. Shortage of money can be demoralizing. Living on credit or borrowing is demeaning and lowers one in one’s own eyes.

3- Your own home. Rented places can never give you the comfort or security of a home that is yours for keeps. If it has garden space, all the better. Plant your own trees and flowers, see them grow and blossom, and cultivate a sense of kinship with them. They are home to many insects, birds & animals. Enjoy providing them a home and gain their wishes and prayers.

4- An understanding companion, be it your spouse or a friend. If you have too many misunderstandings, it robs you of your peace of mind. It is better to be divorced than to be quarreling all the time.

5- Stop envying those who have done better than you in life—risen higher, made more money, or earned more fame. Envy can be corroding; avoid comparing yourself with others. Look after the people who work for you and help them develop their assets and care for their families.


6- Colonel Ajay Ahlawat says that do not allow people to descend on you for gossip and time pass. By the time you get rid of them, you will feel exhausted and poisoned by their gossip-mongering.

7- Cultivate a hobby or two that will fulfill you—Riding, antique collection, Dogs and pets, reading, writing, playing or listening to meaningful music like qawallis or Sufi. Going to clubs or parties to get free drinks, or to meet celebrities, is a criminal waste of time. It’s important to concentrate on something that keeps you occupied meaningfully.

8- Every morning and evening devote 15 minutes to introspection says Colonel Ajay Ahlawat. In the mornings, 10 minutes should be spent in keeping the mind absolutely still, and five listing the things you have to do that day. In the evenings, five minutes should be set aside to keep the mind still and 10 to go over the tasks you had intended to do.

9- Don’t lose your temper. Try not to be short-tempered, or vengeful. Even when a friend has been rude, just move on. Help as much as you can – anyone & anything.

10- When the time comes to go, one should go like a Person without any regret or grievance against anyone.
