“After the peace treaty was signed at Armistice Hall, several groups were formed to take care of the restless situation in Korea. One of the teams was the Custodian Force, of which, I was fortunately part of! When I boarded the special train to Madras with my fellow members, there were already thirty cameramen eager to cover the news at the station. The civilians assembled with flags and shouted ‘Jai Hind!’

But while we were in Fatehpur Sikri, the only thought that daunted me in the evening was – Will we see the next day? Is this the end of us?

He had to suffer a lot from the age of six.  Due to unavoidable circumstances, he had to change from one school to other, number of times.  

In the year 1942, while was staying in Kolkata, one fine morning, he left his maternal uncle’s house after breakfast and went to the maidan, where a recruitment board was formed in ITF (India Territorial Force) Pavilion for recruitment in different departments of the Army.  When he reached there, one British officer enquired whether he was prepared to join the Army, mentioned his Intelligence Branch of HQ Western Command, New Delhi, and afterwards he worked in different departments of the Indian army. He also served under Neutral Nations Repatriation Commission and Custodian Force Headquarters, as India was approached by UNO to send their troops to take responsibility to take full control of ‘Prisoners of War.’  Therefore, he was also involved in a part of the activities in Korea and Cambodia.
