    Some of us students, mostly from Coorg, attended the funeral of General Thimayya at Wilson Garden crematorium, in Bengaluru. I remember there was lot of discussion on whether to open the sealed coffin or not. Finally General Thimayya’s wife’s word prevailed and the coffin was lowered without opening, much to our disappointment for not having had the opportunity to view the General’s face for the last time.That was the first time I witnessed a great man’s funeral with full military honour.
