Milkha now burst on the International stage when at the 1958 Asian games he won the gold medal in both the 200m and 400m events. Have we ever heard of any Indian athlete winning 2 gold medals in a track event after him? Milkha clocked a time of 21.6 and 47 seconds respectively. This was the time the world took notice of a bearded Sikh with long hair on the international stage and nicknamed him as the ‘Flying Sikh’. He followed up by winning the 400 m event at the Cardiff Commonwealth games with a timing of 46.16 seconds. He was the first Indian to win a gold medal at the commonwealth games after independence. Milkha again won a gold medal in 400m at the 1962 Asian games.
The Eastern Command was in existence, but the IAF never carried out any exercises for hill attacks and operations. All the exercises were carried out for operations in the plains.

The sad part was that they were led by officers of the regular Pakistan Army who only a few months back were part of the Army Rally Bharti 2019 under the Raj. They even attacked the missionary hospital and murdered the pregnant women. Dr Barrette in charge of the hospital and the nuns including the mother superior were summarily shot. The leaders were the Pakistan Officer class.
