COAS General Pervez Kayani has retired and hanged up his boots today 29-Nov-2013 after no less than 42 long years, two months and 30 days - 15, 432 days to be precise, in a tough journey of a life time of defending a tough enviroment 'Pakistan'.
It has taken a toll on Pervez Kayani, of the huge numbers of glittering medals, gold and colourful badges, that he wears proudly for Pakistan, none can be more telling than what his underneath his eyes now, he is tired now, the ever-expanding dark circles under his eyes. Since his rise to the higher echelons of Pakistan Military just as the top slots on Army, Kayani has slept only 4 hours a night on average and an odd 1 hour sleep during the day to refresh himself.
He had his mistakes and his successes, but salute to his services for defending the nation of Pakistan successfully. Pakistan is here to stay.
