    2. they want better pay so that they can buy 10 big properties instead of 5 during their service. it is like salman khan asking for 100 crore per movie. get it?

    3. army men are living hand to mouth . try to visit some one. there are insurgencies and fights all over the country and you are comparing them with salman khan. if it is so lucrative then why they are leaving. its not only the constant fear of death from freedom fighter but even if they survives from them the low income will destroy their lives. even look at their divorce ratio. so try to stay away from it

  15. I would like to tell that Mr. Pritesh the Engineer is right that he won't get that much salary as compared to the private firms. But also it is not that easy to join Indian Army as an Officer and crack through the selection process. And obviously you will become a good engineer but to become a good Officer you should have great leadership qualities. You are asking about the salary of Army as if it is like mango in a tree. It is quite tough dude to get this job .... Only few fortunate people and most desired ones get. So its not so easy to make through....
