    K.S.Chandrashekaraiah My heart felt condolence to the family of Mr.Niranjan. I pray Almighty to rest his soul in peace. See our youths like Niranjan Sacrifice their lives for the sake of our motherland but, what our Government or politicians do just conduct few minutes condolence meeting by putting a small garland on their photos. Their family should be given best possible benefits like free education to children, job to wife,pension to the wife and parents. Our politicians are enjoying to their maximum at the cost of these brave soldiers. They are taking protection at the cost of others. I Pray Almighty to give strength to bear this irreparable loss to the family and the daughter who lost his father before she understands what this world is. the young wife and aged parents I salute to all for the great stratification from their family to this motherland WITH DEEP SORROW K.S.CHANDRASHEKAR
