  2. Ever wondered what if your current situation and your position in life is not your true destiny? Yes, we all think about that. Often the struggle, the sheer horror of what would happen and the fear of failure catapults us into a comfortable position where we enjoy complaining about life, but seldom push ourselves to change it. Om Paithane's struggle and his story might be the inspiration you need today. © Twitter He hails from humble backgrounds and was driving a cab with Ola when fate knocked his door, and life took a beautiful turn for him. One day, as fate would have it, his passenger happened to be a Colonel himself, and one conversation changed his course of life. In an interview, Om explained what happened. “It is Col. Bakshi Sir who changed my life. He told me about the opportunities in the armed forces and the Combined Defence Service (CDS) exams and even referred me to Lt. Col. Ganesh Babu, the then Director, Armed Forces Officers Selection Orientation Programme.” Post this encounter, Om studied hard for the CDS exams and even managed to crack it in the first attempt. He then went on to clear the SSB exam in Bhopal and landed at the OTA. Om's father, Uttam Paithane was a cab driver for three decades and the family was undergoing a lot of financial pressure. © Twitter Life has now obviously come full circle for the Paithane family, who are beaming with pride for Om. “This has resulted in a total transformation in Om's life and personality.. The way people look at him and his uniform with respect. He feels proud donning the uniform, but is still humble and eternally grateful to all the people, including Col. Bakshi Sir, who guided him at all steps”, his brother said. Om's journey is an inspiration to many and people are in awe of his hard work. A very inspiring example.

Major salute to this bright man and we hope he makes the whole nation proud.

People watch as black smoke rises as the capital of Burkina Faso came under multiple attacks on March 2, 2018, targeting the French embassy, the French cultural centre and the country´s military headquarters/AFP OUAGADOUGOU : Gunmen attacked the army?s headquarters in the capital of Burkina Faso on Friday as well as the downtown area and France?s embassy, and the French ambassador said an explosion in the city was a terrorist attack. It was not clear who was behind the violence but Burkina Faso and other West African countries have been targeted by militant groups linked to al Qaeda and Daesh in the past few years.

Suspected militants killed at least 18 people last August during a raid on a restaurant in Ouagadougou, and militants have targeted Burkinabe security forces along its remote northern border region with Mali. Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) claimed responsibility for an attack on a restaurant and hotel in Ouagadougou in January 2016 in which 30 people were killed. Five countries launched a new taskforce last year to tackle militants in the region, to which international donors have committed half a billion dollars. Jean-Marc Châtaigner, France?s ambassador to West Africa?s Sahel region, tweeted:?Terrorist attack this morning in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso: solidarity with colleagues and Burkinabe friends.? He urged people to avoid the city center. After the first big blast, the sound of a series of smaller explosions and exchanges of gunfire came from the direction of the headquarters. It ceased by around noon.

  12. Afghan security forces keep watch at a checkpoint near the site of a suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, February 24, 2018. REUTERS/Mohammad Ismail LASHKAR GAH: Taliban militants have attacked an Afghan army post and killed 18 government soldiers, the defence ministry said on Saturday, while a suicide bomber in the capital killed one person and wounded six. Violence has intensified in Afghanistan since US President Donald Trump unveiled a more aggressive strategy in August with US-led forces carrying out more air strikes and the Taliban responding with bombs, ambushes and raids. Militants attacked a government army post overnight on Friday in the western province of Farah, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said. ?A large number of Taliban attacked an army outpost and we lost 18 soldiers and two were wounded,? said the spokesman, Dawlat Waziri. Waziri said he had no more details of the attack. The Taliban claimed responsibility and said two of their fighters were killed. The bomb in Kabul on Saturday was the latest in a spate of attacks in the city in which hundreds of people have been killed and wounded. The capital has been on high alert since a Taliban suicide bomber blew up an explosive-packed ambulance on a busy street on Jan. 27, killing more than 100 people and wounding at least 235. A week earlier, militants killed more than 20 people, including four Americans, in an attack on one of the city?s top hotels. The Taliban claimed that attack too. On Saturday, a bomber blew himself up on a road near the headquarters of Afghanistan?s NATO-led mission. The identity of the casualties was not known, said Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish. Daesh claimed responsibility in a message on their Amaq news agency. Daesh?s Afghan affiliate, which first appeared near the border with Pakistan in 2015, has become increasingly active and has claimed several recent attacks. The Western-backed government is under growing public pressure to set aside rivalries and improve security. President Ashaf Ghani has approved a new security plan for Kabul but it was not clear what steps could be taken in the city of 5 million people, which already has numerous checkpoints and vehicle restrictions. Also on Saturday, at least one civilian was killed and eight were wounded when a suicide bomber detonated a car-bomb in Lashkar Gah, the capital of the southern province of Helmand, said Omar Zwak, a spokesman for the provincial governor. The Taliban, fighting to drive out foreign troops and re-establish their regime, claimed responsibility. In another attack in the province, a suicide bomber targeted an Afghan army post killing two soldiers and wounding one, Zwak said.
  13. If there's any famous guy with ordinary (but refined) dressing abilities, it's got to be our #MainMan, John Abraham. One, because he wears the simplest of pieces, in the easiest of manners. Two, they usually belong to mall-land (means, are easy to cop). And three, he's been very, very consistent while following this style theory. Here's some evidence: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani But while that's like blowing his glorious trumpet, we'd like to inform you: the man has now also done something that every Indian guy has always dreamt of: slipping into the Indian army uniform. A moment of pride, that every guy growing up in India, foresees happening at least once in his life. Doesn't this make you respect Abraham even more? © Viral Bhayani But to be frank, while John's wearing the official Indian army uniform (it's not about fashion/style discussions here), it's yet, an outfit that's representing the best of all worlds. If noticed closely, the actor's has gone for the kill here — the fit of the ensemble is making us beam with pride, his folds on the shirt are nearly perfect and even the trousers are grazing his legs just right. © Viral Bhayani Not forgetting, his black leather combat boots look terrific. And clearly, are enjoying the company of those camo-trousers (that's been neatly stuffed into the pair). Not because John wanted to, but because that's how you wear combat boots, man. And you don't need to belong to the Indian Army to know that.
  14. It's not every day that we hear such inspiring stories, where people go to extreme lengths or do every possible thing to help someone. So, when we come across such a story, how can we let it pass just like that? In fact, these stories and the people both command our respect for their exemplary actions. One such story is of Chirag Arora, a sixth-term cadet of the National Defence Academy (NDA), whose commendable team spirit has earned him respect from the academy and a Ray-Ban aviator from a top army general. Lieutenant General Alok Kler, a strike corps commander was so impressed with Chirag's team spirit and camaraderie, he flew from Ambala to NDA Pune to give a pat to the cadet and as a gesture gave his Ray-Ban to him. BCCL Every 6 months, a cross-country race among cadets is organized by NDA in Khadakwasla, Pune. This time too, a 12.5 km inter-squadron cross-country race was organized for every cadet from all the 18 squadrons to take part in, except the first term cadets. In fact, the race is tougher than any other race, since it is without half time, timesouts or substitutions and the cadets also have to run over undulating terrains. There are no points for guessing that the one who finishes the race earns more points for his squadron. Twitter (For representation) But for Chirag, helping his junior, Devesh Joshi was more important than finishing first. And he did exactly that by carrying his injured junior on his back, just so he does not lose out on points. Chirag saw Devesh was on the verge of collapsing, so he put him on his back and ran for half a kilometer to finish the race in 55 minutes. It might look like a small gesture, but it definitely speaks volumes about Chirag's soldierly spirit. Twitter Both Chirag and Devesh are from the same squadron, Echo Squadron. While Chirag is in the sixth-term, Devesh is in the fourth term. The Echo Squadron holds the record for the longest unbroken possession of the Glider Trophy, so clearly the pressure was high on Chirag. But, that did not deter him from doing what was right – helping his injured cadet and in the process proves as the truest example of 'leave no man behind'. An NDA officer told the Times of India, “Chirag didn't let his squadron cadet lose out on the points. He ensured that they crossed the finish line together.” Major Surenndra Poonia, a former Special Forces officer of the Indian Army, took to Twitter to share this incredible story. Soldiers's Spirit & Camaraderie ! NDA Cadet,who carried his injured buddy 2.5 kms on his back so that he is able to finish the run and not left behind. GOC 2 Corps, Lt General Kler went from Ambala to NDA Pune to give a pat to Cadet He also presented his Raybans to himð @adgpi pic.twitter.com/FreWNfEXeu — Maj Surendra Poonia (@MajorPoonia) 20 February 2018 The officer further added, “Both cadets are from Echo Squadron. Final term army cadet Chirag Arora, who is also quarter master sergeant of the squadron, saw his junior Devesh Joshi in a precarious condition and on the verge of collapse. Arora put Joshi on his back and carried him for half a km to finish the race in 55 minutes.” Hats off to this camaraderie and Chirag's team spirit!
  15. A man of many talents – an adventurer, writer and TV presenter, Bear Grylls is one of his kind. When people get to know about this genius, at first they do not believe in his skills. Then they watch him doing weird & unbelievable stuff and just get hooked onto him forever, such is his identity. The 43-year-old calls himself 'a bit stupid and incredibly lucky' for having survived some of the toughest terrains in the world. Whether it is about having survived to fly without a reserve parachute or having been bitten by deadly snakes a number of times, Grylls' story is enthralling and larger than life. He has believed in developing awareness about his own body, making it fit for survival in harsh circumstances and choosing his own battles. Where on one hand we see him every now and then challenging the odds, he often mentions that age is just a number. As he takes the road less travelled and inspires millions of young and old people throughout the world to explore life at best, we bring to you a must read story of his journey which made him the toughest survivor on Earth. Bear Grylls: The Born Survivor © Instagram British explorer Bear Grylls, popularly called 'Born Survivor' is best known to TV audiences for Discovery's 'Man vs. Wild'. The magic of TV makes Grylls look like the ultimate survivor, but the truth isn't so black and white. From his genuine close calls with death to embarrassing leaks about his so-called survival shows, no one knows the complete truth behind Bear Grylls and his life. Bullied In School, Grylls Took To Karate Well, anyone who has seen his shows might be surprised to learn that Grylls was bullied in school. The guy seems pretty tough now, but he wasn't always like that. In response to the bullying he received at school, young Grylls decided to take up karate classes along with a few of his friends. Three years later he got his black belt and went to train in Japan as the youngest member of the Karate Union of Great Britain. Grylls describes the experience in his book 'Mud, Sweat and Tears' as follows: "Each night we slept on the floor in small wooden Japanese huts, and by day we learned how to fight — real and hard. The training was more exacting and demanding than anything I had previously encountered." Hiking In The Himalayas, Excursions In India And Joining The Army © Instagram After leaving school, Grylls spent several months hiking the Himalayas. He told The Hindustan Times during an interview: "I spent quite some time in India before joining the Army. I went out there climbing, and up in West Bengal and all around Darjeeling. We were in Calcutta for a while and then we were with the Indian Army as well." Grylls even flirted with the idea of joining the Indian Army himself at the time, but ultimately decided to enroll in the military at home in Great Britain. Grylls joined the United Kingdom Special Forces Reserve in 1994 and served with 21 Regiment Special Air Service, or SAS, for three years, receiving training in everything from desert and winter warfare to evasive driving, climbing, and explosives. A Daredevil And Not So Easy To Scare © Instagram Grylls might have only been an SAS reserve, but that doesn't mean he got to skip out on any of the dangerous stuff. His second deployment to Africa ended in a terrible accident that almost claimed his life. He broke three vertebrae in a deadly 17,000 foot fall. But Grylls didn't let that accident be an obstacle in his adventures. He lived his childhood dream to climb Mount Everest when he scaled earth's highest mountain in 1998, less than two years after his near-fatal Africa fall. Everest is obviously no walk in the park, and Grylls almost met his end for a second time when some loose ice left him hanging on for dear life. At The Top Of The World – The World's Highest Dinner Party In 2005, Grylls and fellow explorer Lieutenant Commander Alan Veal staged one of the weirdest stunts of Grylls' career. They broke the record for the world's highest dinner party when they flew a hot air balloon to a height of 24,262 feet and climbed down to a dinner table suspended below the balloon, braving temperatures of minus 50 degrees Celsius. After enjoying a three-course meal together, the daredevil duo dedicated the venture to Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth and skydived back down to ground with full bellies. Controversies Around Grylls And His Work Grylls was the subject of controversy in 2008 when U.S. survival consultant Mark Wienert started talking to the British media about his time working on Grylls' show 'Man vs.Wild', claiming that the star was a fraud. Wienert revealed that during one episode he personally assembled a Polynesian-style bamboo raft off-camera only for Grylls to add the finishing touches and take the credit. And after shooting on the episode concluded, Wienert claims the ex-military man left for a motel. He also claimed that Grylls apparently spent a few nights in a luxurious lodge during the filming of the Sierra Nevada mountains episode. However, no one knows the authenticity of these allegations. An Adventurous Dad—Did He Go Too Far? © Instagram When your dad eats bugs and gets peed on for a living, you're bound to have an interesting childhood. That's definitely true for Bear Grylls' kids. When they aren't staying on the houseboat they moored on the banks of London's River Thames, Grylls and his family live on a remote island off the coast of Wales. In 2013, Grylls found himself in hot water with the local council after erecting a huge metal slide that ended with a drop off a cliff face into the sea below. Grylls defended his decision by saying, "The slide has an element of danger to it, you do hit the water pretty hard. But do you know what? There are a lot more dangerous things around." He was criticized again in 2015 when he purposely stranded his 11-year-old son on a rocky outcrop off the island to serve as a training aid for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. 'Survivor Games', China Bear Grylls is hugely popular in the U.S. and his native U.K., but he also has a massive following in an unlikely place: China. Grylls' 2012 bestseller 'Mud, Sweat and Tears' was voted the most influential book in China the year it was released. And in 2016, Grylls invited several Chinese celebrities to join him in the wild, including former NBA star Yao Ming, Olympic swimmer Fu Yuanhui, and Robin Li, one of China's richest tech moguls. The show aired under the name Survivor Games and featured a premise similar to Mission Survive, a UK series in which Grylls takes eight celebrities on a two week hike through unforgiving terrain and eliminates them one by one. Despite the country's love for Grylls, however, the Chinese version didn't go over well. Viewers complained that the show was 'tasteless' and 'disgusting' after Grylls forced the contestants to drink their own urine. Disgusting? Oh yeah! But, tasteless? We'll have to trust Grylls on that!
  16. Screen shot shows Indian post being hit by heavy weapons. -ISPR RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army on Thursday killed five Indian soldiers along the Line of Control (LoC) in Tatta Pani sector, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). The retaliation by the Army comes after Indian forces opened fire on a school van earlier today and martyred its driver. In the action taken by Pakistani troops, the Indian post along the LoC was also destroyed and many other Indian soldiers were injured, added ISPR. "Indian terrorism against innocent citizens shall be responded befittingly." After the earlier attack today, the act was condemned by the Army spokesman. "Indian unethical and unprofessional approach across the LoC continues terrorising civilians." Major General Asif Ghafoor had reiterated that such attacks are a violation of the Geneva Convention and a clear violation of the 2003 ceasefire agreement between the two nuclear-armed neighbours. Skirmishes along the LoC have seen an increase after the right-wing government of Narendra Modi came into power in India. In 2018, Indian forces carried out more than 150 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary in just 20 days, resulting in the martyrdom of nine innocent civilians, while injuring 40 others. In 2017, Indian forces committed more than 1900 ceasefire violations.

  20. FILE photo: Foreign Office of Pakistan ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Sunday strongly rejected allegations against it by some Indian officials of the reported attack on an Indian army camp in occupied Kashmir, according to a spokesperson for the Pakistani Foreign Office. "It is a well established pattern that Indian officials begin making irresponsible statements and levelling unfounded allegations, even before any proper investigation in any incident has been initiated," the spokesperson said in a statement. It mentioned that a particular segment in the Indian media "runs with their innuendos to malign Pakistan and whips up public frenzy." "We are confident that the world community would take due cognisance of India's smear campaign against Pakistan, and the deliberate creation of war hysteria," the statement read. Early on Saturday, unidentified gunmen reportedly stormed into Indian army camp in Sunjwan area of occupied Jammu, leaving two army officers dead and six other soldiers injured. The spokesperson further stated that these tactics are also aimed at diverting attention from the state terrorism in the Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir, that India is engaged in. "The brutalisation of peaceful, unarmed Kashmiris through harassment, incarceration, disappearances, torture, extra- judicial killings, sham trials and summary executions are well-documented internationally," the statement read. "The valiant people of Kashmir, however, remain resilient in the face of all these hardships, as they pursue their legitimate right for self-determination." The spokesperson, in his statement, urged the international fraternity to urge India to stop the untold atrocities and gross violations of human rights in IoK, and refrain from any misadventure across the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary. The statement also called for a peaceful and negotiated settlement of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute, in line with the United Nations Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people.

  24. Egyptian army in the Sinai. -File/AFP CAIRO: The Egyptian army announced the launch on Friday of a major operation against militants across swathes of territory including the Sinai Peninsula, the heart of a persistent Daesh insurgency. Police and troops have been put on "maximum alert" for the duration of Operation Sinai 2018, which also involves the airforce and navy, the army said in a statement. Warplanes will bomb areas where militants are hiding while troops, tanks and armoured vehicles will be deployed on the ground, security sources said. The security sweep in the Sinai, the Nile Delta and the Western Desert near the Libyan border comes as the country prepares for polls next month at which President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is seeking re-election. Egypt has been under a state of emergency since April last year, after two suicide bombings at churches claimed by Daesh killed at least 45 people in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria. The goal of Operation Sinai 2018 is to tighten control of border districts and "clean up areas where there are terrorist hotbeds", army spokesman Tamer al-Rifai said in a televised address. In a later update, he said the air force had targeted a number of homes and hideouts in the north and west of the Sinai. The navy was boosting security at maritime borders "to cut off the influx of terrorists," he added. Security sources and eyewitnesses confirmed that the operation was underway in the Nile Delta and North Sinai province. Churches, tourists attacked The security forces have been increasingly targeted by militants since the army overthrew president Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Most of the violence has been in North Sinai province, but there have also been attacks on the military, police and even churches elsewhere, including Cairo. Militants have also attacked tourists, killing all 224 on board a Russian plane carrying holidaymakers in 2015. In November, Sisi ordered the armed forces chief of staff to restore security in Sinai within three months after militants killed more than 300 worshippers at a mosque. Sisi, who is expected to easily win another four-year term next month after several potential challengers were either hobbled or dropped out, said on Facebook he was "proudly following the heroism" of the security forces. Egypt has previously announced several major offensives to tackle the militants threat. It also carried out air strikes against Daesh in Libya in 2015 after a video was released showing the beheading of 21 Christians, almost all Egyptian Copts, on a Libyan beach. The military has boosted its operations on the border with Libya and repeatedly expressed concern about militants crossing over from the chaos-wracked country to launch attacks.
  25. Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers stand guard at the entrance gate of Marshal Fahim military academy in Kabul, Afghanistan, January 29, 2018. REUTERS/Omar Sobhani/Files KABUL: Seven Afghan army officers, including two generals, have been sacked over a deadly attack on a Kabul military base, President Ashraf Ghani said Tuesday, as the Afghan capital braces for further assaults. At least five attackers ? gunmen and suicide bombers ? launched the pre-dawn raid claimed by Daesh on January 29, killing 11 soldiers and wounding 16. "Seven high-ranking officers including two generals committed professional negligence. All seven are sacked and referred for further investigations," Ghani said on Twitter after a probe into the incident. Ghani?s US-backed government is under growing public pressure to improve security in the capital after a series of attacks demonstrated the ability of the Taliban and Daesh to strike at the heart of the country. Since January 20, militants have stormed a luxury hotel, bombed a crowded street and raided the military compound in Kabul, killing more than 130 people. The assaults, including a devastating ambulance bomb attack that killed more than 100 people and wounded hundreds, have left already war-weary citizens grief-stricken and angry as the Taliban and Daesh escalate their offensives. Kabul remains on high alert for more attacks. The National Directorate of Security ? Afghanistan?s spy agency ? on Tuesday, seized a truck it said was carrying two tonnes of material which could be used to make bombs. The truck was travelling from Kabul to the northern province of Parwan where the US Bagram airbase is located, an official said.
