AN INTELLECTUALLY HONEST 13 LANCERS COMMANDER AND MAN OF PRINCIPLES GENERAL-MAJOR GEN KHURSHEED ALAM KHAN-MILES SUPERIOR TO MANY PIGMY 3 AND 4 STAR GENERALS OF ARMOURED CORPS WHO WERE PROMOTED FOR THEIR DOCILITY AND MEEKNESS
MY ASSOCIATION WITH THEN BRIGADIER KHURSHEED ALAM DATES FROM MID 1987 WHEN HE TOOK OVER COMMAND OF 5 ARMOURED BRIGADE IN MULTAN.HE WAS A POSITIVE CHANGE FROM HIS HIGHLY BIASED AND ERRATIC PREDECESSOR. A FAIR AND BALANCED MAN , HIS COMMAND WAS LIKE A POWERFUL RAY OF SUNLIGHT IN THE BRIGADE THAT HE LED.
I MET HIM AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER 1993 WHEN HE WAS COMMANDING 31 CORPS RESERVE AT BAHAWALPUR. 5 INDEPENDENT ARMOURED SQUADRON THAT I WAS COMMANDING WON THE 31 CORPS TANK SUB CALIBRE . SIX MAJOR UNITS WHO LOST, COMMANDING OFFICERS WERE SHOCKED AND OUTRAGED AND IN A MEAN AND SLY MANNER SUGGESTED THAT INDEPENDENT SQUADRON IS NOT A MAJOR UNIT AND SHOULD NOT BE PLACED AT PAR WITH REGULAR UNITS- MAJOR GENERAL KHURSHEED ALAM KHAN TE TRUE EAST PUNAB RAJPUT THAT HE WAS DISMISSED THESE ULTERIOR SUGGESTIONS, ALTHOUGH HIS OWN REGIMENT 13 LANCERS WAS PART OF THE COMPETITION AND RULED THAT THE TROPHY RIGHTLY BELONGED TO FIVE INDEPENDENT ARMOURED SQUADRON.
HIS SUPREME INTELLECTUAL HONESTY IS A MIGHTY CHERISHED MEMORY IN MY HEART TILL TODATE SOME 24 YEARS LATER.- #intellectuahonesty #characterdesign #personality #8cavalry #13lancers #20lancers #30cavalry #52cavalry #55cavalry #57cavalry #pakistanarmy #pakistan #5indeparmdsqn #5independentarmouredsquadron
