|A makeshift temple had been built by jawans in a forward post area border and every evening they used to assemble there for puja.|
When the CO joined them one evening, he was surprised to find the image of Lord Krishna alone on the pedestal, without his consort Radha.
"Where is Radha?" the Colonel asked.
"Sir, She can't come here," the jawan replied.
"Why she can't come here?" the CON asked.
"Because it's a non- family station sir."
Army is very strict about their rules... Even if it is for God!!!
|A young Lieutenant pondering over a drink at the Officers' Mess asks his Commanding Officer, "Sir, despite my best efforts, I seem to be unable to earn commendations for my work and my ability does not seem to evolve ?"|
The Commanding Officer patiently answered: "Son, have you seen the gulls flying by the rising sun, with their wings alight, looking like they're on fire?"
"Yes, my sir, I have."
"And the sunlight, beautifully scattered across hundreds of tiny waves, across the eternity that makes up this endless ocean?"
"Yes, sir, I have already witnessed it."
"Then the moon... that kisses the calm waters, who in return reflects all of its enormous beauty?"
"Yes, sir, I have also observed this marvelous phenomenon."
"That is the problem. You keep watching all this nonsense instead of focusing on work."
|A young private sought permission from his Commanding Officer to leave camp the following weekend.|
"You see," he explained, "my wife's expecting."
"Oh..." said the Officer, "I understand. Go ahead and tell your wife that I wish her luck."
The following week the same soldier was back again with the same explanation, "My wife's expecting."
The Officer looked surprised.
"Still expecting?" he said, "Well, well, my boy, you must be pretty bothered. Of course you can have the weekend off."
When the same soldier appeared again the third week, however, the Officer lost his temper.
"Don't tell me your wife is still expecting!" he bellowed.
"Yes sir!" said the soldier resolutely, "She's still expecting."
"What in heaven is she expecting?" cried the Officer.
"Me," said the soldier simply.
|In a unit gathering, the commanding officer cracked a joke. Everybody laughed except the young Lieutenant.|
Commanding officer to Lieutenant: I think you didn't get the joke.
Lieutenant: Sir I am from a different unit.
Second half of the joke:
CO: Oh ! But you know what? Your CO is my Course mate and my Sqn Type.
Lieutenant: Ha.... Ha..... Ha..... Ha.... Now I got the joke Sir. Ha.... Ha....
Third part of the joke:
Youngster: Sir I had already heard the joke at Corps Commander's party that is why I didn't laugh!!
CO: What? What were you doing there???
Youngster: He's my uncle, sir!!!
CO: Arrey Bhai Koi Drink Toh Pilao Guest Ko!!!
And for the rest of the evening CO laughed on youngster's jokes!!!!
