    c) Major's equated with Section Officers in a news papers writeups by a famous writer.


    d) 6th CPC fiasco where wrong equivalence between army and police services were shown and the results are well known to us.

Former PAF chief surprised over his photo in Indian govt advertisement

 An amused former Air Force chief of Pakistan Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed today reacted with surprise over appearance of his photograph in an Indian government advertisement along with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but described it as an "innocent mistake".

The inclusion of Air Chief Marshal (retired) Ahmed's photograph along with Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and other icons in the advertisement caused embarrassment for the Congress-led UPA government.

The Prime Minister's Office apologised to the nation and ordered an inquiry into the lapse.

On being informed about the faux pas, Ahmed told PTI: "I wasn't aware about this as I don't really watch much of the media. Anyway, I was busy with a golf match and didn't know about this development."

"I guess it's just one of those errors. It must be an innocent mistake," said Ahmed, who retired as PAF chief in March last year.


4.  ITS TIME FOR INDIAN ARMED FORCES TO SEEK A LAW/ARRANGEMENT /SYSTEM WHICH SHOULD BE ABLE TO HIGHLIGHT/CORRECT SUCH MISTAKES AND PREVENT  THEM FROM OCCURRING IN FUTURE.

5. PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT TRYING TO INTERFERE WITH THE FREEDOM OF PRESS, BUT WRONG REPORTING NEEDS TO BE PREVENTED/CORRECTED TOO.
