The forgotten soldier



The story of Sanju Ram, a former Indian Army soldier, was heart-rending (“Humiliating to be carried on palanquin: ex-armyman”, March 12). The government has been spending crores on memorials and publicity material, but soldiers like Mr. Ram are forgotten. One hopes that with the report on his plight and his need for quality prosthetic implants, people will respond and help him lead a life with dignity.
