  1. Lt Patel, Heartiest congratulations on starting a new chapter and fittingly naming it after Adm Hyman Rickover. Just last week I wrote a brief piece on his visit to an Indian submarine in HongKong in December 1982. Meeting him on board was an experience and he was everything he was reputed to be.
