    hi every one out there. I wonder why ‘some’ journalists are siding wih this admiral arun prakash whose misdeeds are already explined by the CBI, the rest will follow. Dont you think journalists should stick to news rather than siding with one or the other. Boss shiv aroor, dont you think this is termed as racketering. As far as the great admiral, why des he not file a signle defamation case in his individual capacity. The CBI is also finding that how his nephew has managed to stay abroad for so long. wait till some more dead bodies fall from cupborad. Hold your gusto for sometime

    we all know IPI kaipeeeye or whateer organ,issues awards based on all sort of lobbying. And these awards are used for various purposes inc luding CV fattening.
    If the admiral is guilty he will be punished by law.
    It is just and necessary that the principle of audi alterum partum be followed especially by a panel in whic justice anand was a member.
    They owe a reply at least.
    Regarding fighting, does my friend know how long and arduous a court fight is? simple to suggest!! while one fights the perpetrator goes on with his nefarious activities or enjoys the fruit of his misdeeds.

    Are we going to become the kind of nation that favors mudslingers over those who have served the nation for over 30 years with a career in the armed forces? CNS Arun Praksah is innocent until proven guilty, and Outlook magazine has not proven his guilt, only raised unsubstantiated accusations against him. No progress will be possible if we let accusers bring down those who are doing good work for the nation.

    no one @ 1.19pm: there’s no gusto in what i’ve put up here. i don’t what’s true and what’s not. i simply have put up admiral prakash’s letter since i was a recipient of a copy of it. so my posting it here is not a sign of my leanings (whatever they may be) one way or the other. so before jumping to call anything “racketeering”, take a step back, and while you’re at it, a breath too!

    hi shiv, my comment was not in anyways a personal attack to you. Sorry, if you have felt hurt either ways. I have followed the case very closely so somehow felt jolted by the guts of admn prakash to post this letter. This message is meant for all those whose brains are sub-servant to anyone. I have tried to approach man in white so many times, may be he reads the questions on this blog itself and answers — not to me but to his conscience and the indians.
    Why did he not put a check on his nephew?
    how come his officil phone as CNS was used by his nephew to call people in paris and others accused in Navy war room
    why were three Naval officers dismissed from service without any explaination?
    Why is Navy now on a backfoot in Delhi High Court?
    why did Deputy CNS come and beg the CBI to implicate those dismissed article 311?
    Come one these are only tip of iceberg. Let Adm prakash answer this, many more are to follow?
    Courts take long and i can only hope that the case sees the light of the day?
    Dear shiv, these questions have nothing to do with you but may be treated as an open forum for admn prakash to answer

    buddy, only if he (admn prakash) had answers, he would have replied. chill boss, i know sooner or later thr truth will tumble out of the cupboard and possibly it will hurt your feelings only, if you are his fan. till then take a chill pill and do visit Delhi High court on dec 18 when navy counsel will be ripped apart for their ficitious charges against naval officers in 2005. do visit

    too many people have already made up their minds about this friggin’ case. nothing has been proved yet. the admiral’s silence during the so called investigation is as peculiar as the fact that outlook’s investigation has had no real impact on public interest. the war room leak was a criminal case long before outlook began its series, so the IPI award is little mistaken in its citation either way by suggesting that outlook’s impact was a criminal investigation. outlook, in effect, effected nothing, apart from a few high court cases against it, far lower credibility within the reading community and still no answers about forged papers and documents! if outlook wants answers from admiral arun, then it should be equally willing to come clean on its character assassination campaign. many of us on the forums believe so, and are glad this has come up for debate even though the issue has receded from public memory.

    As a old navy man and old “buddy” of the villian of this story Shankaran, let me add my contribution to this shameful story and give inside gen from my side.
    There are much bigger people much bigger than Arun Prakash involved in this game which Outlook and its masters have played.He cannot explain.
    FIRST. Shankaran was allowed to get away and will NOT be caught by CBI because he worked for the Atomic Energy people. When I asked him to explain his high life style a few years ago he told me that he was helping in “Sanction Bursting” for DAE and they had helped to get him an office next to India Gate in Mumbai.So he is now safe in Europe & will stay there.
    SECOND. He was a kind chap & wanted to help his pals who were not as lucky as him. So he used his old navy contacts in NHQ and also his wifes uncle’s name (CNS) to obtain info about contracts that could help earn some money for his old friends. He was always boasting about his Uncle could get postings and promotions. Some IAF chap leaked to IB and then navy woke up.
    THIRD. Ambitious FOC West in Mumbai with his eyes on Chiefs gaddi heard about Shankaran’s activities and sent his naval police to raid his office. God knows what he found, but he realized that he could get rid of Prakash. So he goes to Nanda, HDW and Outlook and they create a big nonsense together.
    LAST. Outlook gets award from Europe Manjit Singh gets prize from Nanda. Ex-CNS should have kept his eyes & ears open. No use crying on your blog now.
