 He was called for his service to the motherland. He reciprocated immediately. Giving up all familial relationships, he partook in a rigorous training programme that was a true test of his heart, body, mind and soul. Fighting off his cowardly hopes of quitting the organization so as to avoid the ordeal, he was finally made battle ready.

Slipped into enemy territory, his espionage attempts met with complete success. However luck soon turned against him, as during his third mission he was seized by the enemy camp and imprisoned. He was subjected to absolute third degree torture and only miraculously, and albeit divinely, escaped the contours of death on more that one occasion.

But he continued to strive towards seeing his own country once again. He looked forward to coming back home. And one day, God gave him that chance. He returned to the border once again, so that he could be united with his fellow countrymen.

Was the welcome given to him befitting that of a hero? Or even if not a hero’s welcome, certainly he needn’t have been treated like a blackguard, a traitor!

Who was he after all a Spy, or a Soldier?

About the author

 The name Kishori Lal was given to me by my grandfather, Late Sh. Lakhpat Rai as he was informed about my birth at the village Gurudwara, where he was sitting for the daily Ardas. He requested the Granthi of the Gurudwara to find the first word from the Holy Script, the WAK of Sh. Guru Granth Saheb. The Granthi then pronounced ‘K’ in Gurumukhi, i.e. Kakka or Kee. Then my grandfather named me Kishori Lal on 27th Feb, 1945.

My father, Late Sh. Gurbachan Ram was in service in the MES at Jallandhar Cantt. and was allotted a Govt. accommodation at 142, Hardyal Road. We were four brothers & three sisters, and after passing my matriculation examination from Punjab University, I joined an Automobile Engineering Course at the Institute of Motor Engineering London, through the British Institute of Engineering & Technology (BIET) Bombay by correspondence and completed the course. In the meantime I was in touch with Mr. Bhimsen, one of my elder brother’s friends and he introduced me to an officer of the Ml. I was captured by the Pakistani Authorities and sentenced to 12 years when on assignment in Pakistani Territory. I was later released in accordance to the Shimla Agreement in the year of 1974, on 18th Sept.

As I was a trained engineer and just 32 years old at the time of my release, I could start my life all over again. I was married in 1979 and have one daughter and one son.

At present I am working with a private firm at Ludhiana since 1979 as a commercial manager (Ralson Group of Co.)

During war the Field Commanders at all levels make sure that their artillery advisers are always close at hand. It is akin to seeking parental protection. In attack as in defence, artillery plays decisive role and has rarely, if at all, been found wanting. It is a morale booster. Statistics reveal that the maximum casualties in war, 80 percent by most estimates are caused by artillery. There have been instances when the leading company commander has been wounded or killed, the FOO has had to take charge and lead the assault and in the process laid down his life. Similarly the BC has taken over when the Battalion’s Commanding Offier and Second in Command have both fallen. There have been instances at the higher command level too where the Gunners have retrieved the situation and have invariably fulfilled the assigned tasks most admirably.

Writing even an abridged history of the Artillery Regiment, which is the second largest Arm of the Indian Army, and its glorious achievements would be a herculean task and would have run into a couple of volumes, but the Author has deftly tackled the dilemma by selecting to write about six Field Generals, eight Gallantry Award Winners, four Artillery Intensive Battles, twenty four Battle Honours and some noteworthy Vignettes of Valour. With this uniquely innovative approach the Book makes a great collection of marvelous feats of the Artillery Regiment of the Indian Army and the role it has played in shaping the outcomes of wars fought by the Indian Army. Artillery indeed continues to be the most potent and powerful arm without which no battle can ever be won.

The Book’s aim is to celebrate the wartime history of the Regiment, of its officers and men for the benefit of the present generation of Gunners, the posterity and for the veterans to relish the nostalgia and the reminiscences that it may revoke. The Book is a mark of love for the Regiment which has given so much of happiness, joy and fulfillment to generations of Gunners.

The Royalty of the Book will go to the Regiment of Artillery Association Martyrs’ Fund maintained by it.
