Forty years after retirement, IAF man donates over Rs 1 cr to defence ministry
NEW DELHI: It is rightly said that you can take the soldier out of Army but you cannot take the Army out of the soldier. Meet 74-year-old CBR Prasad, a retired airman who has donated almost entire savings of his life to the Ministry of Defence.
"After 9 years I left the Indian Air Force (IAF) because the Indian Railways offered me a good job. Unfortunately, I did not get that job. I started a small poultry farm for my livelihood. Fortunately, I did well," he told ANI.
"After fulfilling my family responsibilities, I thought I should give back to the defence whatever I got from there. I decided to give Rs 1.08 crore to the defence forces," added Prasad.
He met defence minister Rajnath Singh here on Monday and handed over the cheque to him.
Prasad started poultry farming and worked hard for 30 years. With the aim of helping society, he has also set up a sports university.
Prasad served in the IAF for around nine years before he left it.
Asked if his family approved the idea, the retired air-warrior says, "Absolutely, no problem. I have given my daughter 2 per cent of my property and one per cent to my wife. Rest 97 per cent, I am giving back to the society."

If every indian contributes a major part of his or her hard work , determination and hard earned money, then I guess by 2025 india will be the greatest nation of this world superior to all other nations.
