India’s first Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat, his wife Madhulika Rawat, and 11 others died on Wednesday after their helicopter crashed in Coonoor in the southern state of Tamil Nadu.

As soon as the news of Rawat’s demise got confirmed, tributes started pouring in from all across the world.

Rawat, who is India’s first Chief of Defence Staff, was appointed to the position by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government in 2019.

The 63-year-old came from a military family with several generations having served in the Indian armed forces.

The general joined the army as a second lieutenant in 1978 and had four decades of service behind him, having commanded forces in Indian-administered Kashmir and along the Line of Actual Control bordering China.
