Defending Siachin Glacier #Indianairforce

This hotstar video documentary is a classic to show how the Indian airforce guards in extreme of weather conditions the Siachen glacier the highest army check point at 22,000. ft. above ground level in freezing cold.

Put under extreme of climatic conditons at -50 C the Jawans brave the spine-chilling cold to guard the border ably supported by the IAF for their daily supplies.

Watch the ancedotes from the lady helicopter pilot Sqd Leader Kushboo Gupta and the other Glacier caption. Glacier captain is the title given to the pilots who manouver the helicopter in the glacier zones to reach the army posts.

The daily challenges and the sacrifices made by Indian army is really inspiring.

Adding to this is the magnetic voice of Kabir Bedi as the narrator in the entire video takes it to the next level.

Every Indian should not miss this. Jai Hind !!

Cricket and Me - Part 2

Please read my earlier post " Cricket and Me "   before reading this as this is a continuation of the earlier Post. With the ticket in my hand I had the day marked in my calender, mobile, Outlook etc. IPL 2010 started with a bang and it was huge event in the Indian cricketing calender as last year's IPL was packed and sent to foreign shores because of the General elections and security issues. The match for which I had the ticket was between the Chennai Super Kings(CSK) and the Rajasthan Royals -RR (Shilpa Shetty's team and the inaugural champions).  My choice for this match was because  it was at 4:00 PM and hence would end by 8:00 PM so that the transport was not a problem and I could use the train without any apprehensions. Also the match would have Dhoni, Shane Warne and the big hitting Pathan (Yousuf) who's fame has sky rocketed because of  IPL these days. The day came and it was a Saturday and a long weekend too. Decided to reach the Venue an hour bef

Ghasi - Hollywood Class

Film Ghassi was another film which really is a class apart from the run-of-a-mill movies. The entire film is shot within a Submarine and the plot is the Indo-Pak war under water in 1971. Viewer watch with bated breath as the story takes you through one sequence of attack after another. Its based on real incidents with how the Indian submarine inspite of losing its captain ,still fought valiantly. This is once in a blue moon kind of movie and matches the class of Hollywood mo vies frame by frame. Score: 4.25/5...extra credit for just the plot and the storyline.

First Reel then Real

While all the political parties have jumped into the Prohibition bandwagon my suggestion would be to start it in the reel world first and then come to the real world. Yes stop showing the hero and his friends do all the things below A) Dance in the bar with group. B) Brain stroming with friends while drinking. C) Failure in personal life...head straight to the bar. D) To get courage - take the bottle. To have the directors avoid these cliches, films without the above can be provided Tax exemption(what an idea sir ji) like the one for naming Tamil films with Tamil titles. Pls share this until it reaches the concerned. Films do impact this generation.
