A youngster got posted to FM Sam Maneckshaw's unit when Sam was the CO. This youngster was on his rounds when one of the riflemen did not notice him and missed saluting him.
The youngster got cheesed off and called out to the Gorkha and asked him the reason for not saluting. The Gorkha innocently gave out the reason that he did not see "Leftent Huzoor".
The youngster not convinced, punished the Gorkha to a thousand salutes.
The soldier immediately started saluting..
Sam who was passing by and asked the youngster as to what was happening.
The youngster said, "Sir this soldier had the audacity of not saluting me. So I have punished him with 1000 salutes."
Sam replied "Good punishment young man. But ensure that you return each of his salutes."
For the next two hours the unit was treated to a scene of a Gorkha saluting, and the young officer returning each of his salutes.
Respect is a two way street.
