A witty letter written by Commander Nishant Singh has resurfaced, instilling bittersweet feelings in netizens. No matter how funny the letter sounds, the fact that Nishant is still missing after his MiG-29K crashed into the Arabian Sea on Thursday doesn’t fail to worry everyone.
The letter was written by Nishant about 7 months back, seeking his commanding officer’s permission to get married.
Nishant Singh asked his senior’s “permission to bite the bullet” and to “willingly sacrifice” himself in “absolute peacetime.”
“I intend to drop a nuclear one on myself and I realise that just like all the split-second decisions we take up in the air in the heat of combat, I cannot afford to allow myself the luxury of time to re-evaluate my decision,” Nishant wrote in his letter.
Talking about his relationship with his partner, Commander Nishant Singh wrote, “On successful completion of three years of extensive SCTT (Survivability and Compatibility Testing Trials), Miss Nayaab Randhawa and I have come to a mutual agreement that we might actually be able to get through the rest of our lives together, without killing each other.”
Continuing with the tradition of young officers seeking the approval of their Commanding Officers to get married, Nishant wrote this letter titled “permission to bite the bullet,” which went viral due to Nishant’s creative writing skills.
“I assure you that even my best efforts of trying to follow my instrument readings were not able to help me recover from the trance of this Spatial Disorientation. I hope you shall find it in your heart to forgive this reckless, evidently suicidal and an absolutely amateurish blunder of a manoeuvre on my part I promise to never repeat such a performance in air or teach it to my trainee pilots.”
Nishant concluded the letter by inviting his senior to “witness the massacre and pay condolences to the couple.”
“Used to yours but now, Her’s faithfully,” the young officer signed off in his witty style.
“All good things come to an end, welcome to hell,” Nishant’s senior responded. The Commanding Officer gave his approval saying, “Saw the spark in you and always knew you were different.”
Commander Nishant Singh has been missing since the MiG-29K crash, however, one pilot has been rescued.
Extensive search operations are on to rescue the missing pilot.
