Since February I have taken Brigadier General Mohamed Arshad Raji’s MIND NO EVIL blog silence as one of those things that we bloggers get inflicted and infected with.
I harbored the old adage, but uncomforatbly: Old soldiers don’t die….they just fade away.
However his silence has resulted in queries in my blog as to why he has stopped blogging. Since he started blogging in 2008 he has done 839 postings. I don’t blame the queries as BG’s postings are always thought-provoking and challenging to the point of pushing the envelope. I thought I was the only one whose sms went unanswered. I only know of one other ex-forces blogger so I took a shot at Major D Swami 7th Rangers Blog:
Sir, what has happened to Hj Arshad of Mind No Evil? Efforts to contact him got no response.
I have tried calling him, no answer on his hand phone. I have consulted all the people who know him. No one knows.
Sir, if you are taking a break, there is nothing wrong in that. A break is always good. We take breaks to recharge batteries. We take breaks to reflect. Have a good break if that is what you are taking but we want to know that you are SAFE, Sir.
