Kudos Chief for caring!

Christmas came early this year for 20-year old Flight Cadet R K Herojit Singh, who met with a flying accident, leaving his limbs permanently damaged, when Santa Claus came in the form of the IAF Air Chief Marshal NAK Browne.
Browne's request to the Defense Minister to grant Singh a commissioning after a six month training for ground duties, received special approval. Kudos Chief! In the season of caring and sharing, you have done both.
The case is special, Aerospace Diary was told, as Herojit did not meet the medical norms for commissioning due to the spinal cord injuries, which left him paralysed waist downwards (Paraplegia), which occurred during his flying training, prior to his course completion and subsequent commission into the IAF. 
We are happy to note that though presently hospitalized in MH Kirkee and mobile on a wheel chair, his intellectual and motor capabilities are fully intact.

A budding flying trainee, full of promise and commitment to the IAF, Herojit was chosen ‘The Most Accomplished Flight Cadet’ of his course. 

Merry Christmas to one and all!
