Group Captain Varun Singh, is married and has two children. He was recently promoted from the post of Wing Commander to Group Captain. Meanwhile, a letter written by Singh has gone viral. Singh who is the sole survivor of the recent helicopter crash in Tamil Nadu that resulted in the deaths of Bipin Rawat and twelve others addressed the letter to students of his former academic institution, Army Public School Chandi Mandir on the 18th of September.
According to the letter, Group Captain Varun Singh advised the students that maintaining a mediocre performance at school is nothing to worry about, that they should focus on giving their best. Singh wrote that not everyone can excel while at school and get 90% marks. It is a great achievement if you excel but if you cannot, then don’t think that you are mediocre because school performance is not a measure of your potential for practical life.
According to the letter, Singh advised the students to find a hobby be it arts, music, graphic design, literature, or anything else, and dedicate themselves completely to it. The Group Captain added that one must give the best without thinking that he/she could have worked harder.

Group Captain Varun Singh added in the letter that when he was a young cadet, his confidence was low but when he was commissioned into the Fighter Squadron as a young Flight Lieutenant, he realized that he could do better if he put his mind and heart into it. That same day he started working to become the best, while as a cadet at the National Defense Academy he did not study or gain any sports skills. But, later on, his passion for aircraft grew and he continued to perform better. Even then, I did not have confidence in my true abilities, he added.
On the other hand, after the death of Chief of Defense Staff General Bipin Rawat in a helicopter crash, the removal of Indian Prime Minister Modi and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has also been considered. This demand has been made by Shiv Sena leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Rawat who said that the death of Bipin Rawat in a helicopter crash was suspicious. Bipin Rawat was responsible for modernizing the country’s weapons. There are doubts in the minds of the people. The government will investigate. It is necessary for Modi to resign and there should be an impartial investigation into the incident.
Moreover, according to reports, military circles in India celebrated the crash and possible death of the Chief of Defense Staff who managed to achieve new developments. It is believed that India under the leadership of Bipin Rawat as Chief of Defence was facing corruption charges in the Raphael planes case. India under the leadership of Bipin Rawat had also faced defeat and internal turmoil in Pulwama and Doklam regions.
The Indian Army Chief, along with his wife and officers, were on board the safest helicopter, which has two engines. A safe landing can be made with one engine in the event of a malfunction in the other engine. This helicopter is only used for VVIP personalities.
