Musings of a Veteran

Before you join the Defence Services you need to ask yourself:

Do you want to be a “fauji” ?

Or do you want to appear to be a “fauji” ?

There are lots of people who just want to appear to be “faujis” – showing off in their uniforms and trying to project a macho image.

Genuine “faujis” don’t indulge in all this blatant showmanship – they never flaunt their military rank – they don’t try to make an impression showing off their military credentials.

True “faujis” keep a low profile – they just focus on “soldiering”

So every individual who wants to join the armed forces (army, navy, air force) must ask himself or herself:

Do I want to be a genuine “fauji” or do I want to be a pseudo “fauji”?

And if you just want to appear to be a “Fauji” then it is best not to join the Defence Services, for your pretence will not last for long.

NB: “Fauji” is a generic term for uniformed personnel of Army Navy and Air Force
