    This is a direct resultant of jealousy experienced by senior officers who do not have enough brass on their chests. They used to feel burnt out when they saw some officers with multiple commendations on their chests. As a result, they decided to introduce this stupid star system. Tell me, does anyone bring a magnifying glass and see the number of stars on a badge ? How would one get to know as to how many times a person has been decorated. Moreover, these amendments have been carried out through a letter by the Ceremonial and Welfare Directorate with sanction of the 'competent authority'. Have they discussed this radical change in Army Commanders' conference, or just moved up a noting sheet and got the initials of the AG and issued this letter ? The latter is more likely.

    a positive and good decision..one does not need to display all decorations like a show case …work speaks better than words/display…..and reputation reaches all even before u know..so commendation whether one or more is enough for people to know ur worth…regards

    Unfortunately the only difference between a soldier who has slogged for years in a field area and the one cooling his ass in an AC room has been swept under the carpet by one indifferent stroke of the pen… Alas! my brethren, the pen is mightier than the sword!

    The very purpose of medals and medallions and rank badges is to let everyone know what a soldier have been through and what has he done in his service. His brethren and subordinates thus know his mettle and recognize and respect instantaneously.

    A soldier without uniform and a uniform without brassware is incomplete. Only civilian and that too stupid civilian will look at the uniform full of decoration as showcase and soldiers world over will look such worthy of uniform and medals with admiration and respect.

    The order under reference has been very incorrect and stupid to say it mildly! It seems handiwork of jealous civilians or pompous disgruntled army officers (I suspect both as cohorts) as otherwise such order is unwarranted. The disc itself is small and the stars are so small that you have to have telescope or magnifying glass to see the difference.
