Ex-servicemen take part in a get-together at Kodava Samaja in Madikeri on Sunday.

The annual general meeting of the Ex-servicemen association and a get-together was held at Kodava Samaja in Madikeri on Sunday.

Speaking on the occasion, Major (retd) Venkatagiri said that the family which has sent its member to the Indian Army will take pride in serving the nation.

Though people revere ex-servicemen, many companies do not provide a job for them, he said.

Ex-servicemen are offered jobs of security guards or supervisors. Unfortunately, the capabilities of ex-servicemen are not understood by many, he added.

He further said that Kodagu has given more soldiers to the Indian Army, compared to other districts and the tradition will continue.

He also called upon the youth to get into the Army in large numbers. The ex-servicemen should provide proper guidance to youth, he added.

More than 160 ex-servicemen took part in the programme. Discussions were held regarding the development of the association.

Association President Anand, Vice President Ganapathy, Secretary Kaverappa, Honourary Secretary Muttanna, Association members Kuttappa and Ganesh were present at the meeting.
