ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsFollowing their one-year suspensions in lieu to the 2018 ball-tampering scandal, Steve Smith and David Warner are raring to go for their respective franchises in the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), slated to begin from 23rd March. While Warner has already been seen in a video for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) fans, Smith got a rousing welcome in the Rajasthan Royals (RR) camp. The picture you all have been waiting to see for so long! @stevesmith49 is back ð On a scale of 1 - #HallaBol, how excited are we Royals? pic.twitter.com/B7LtNcjI3x — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) March 17, 2019 The Australian batting sensation was seen arriving in the Rajasthan camp, sporting a yellow turban and holding a placard that read: "Halla Bol Steve". Smith's photograph was later shared on Twitter by Rajasthan Royals with a caption: The picture you all have been waiting to see for so long! @stevesmith49 is back. On a scale of 1 - #HallaBol, how excited are we Royals?". After staying away from international cricket, Smith will be eager to come good for Royals in the upcoming season of the IPL in a bid to remain in contention for the ICC World Cup slot in the Australian team. Reuters He was supposed to lead the Royals last season, but the infamous ball-tampering saga in South Africa led to his suspension and, in turn, an unceremonious exit from India's cash-rich Twenty20 (T20) league. In his absence, India's Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was seen taking over the reins as captain and eventually leading Rajasthan to the playoffs last season. A thrilling contest between defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will kickstart the twelfth edition of the IPL on 23rd March. On the other hand, Rajasthan will begin their campaign when they take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on 25th March.
Rajasthani Family Names Newborn Baby 'Mirage Rathore' After IAF Jets Bomb JeM Camp In Pakistan
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWith the tensions increasing between India and Pakistan, we are trying to find respite in the situation for our Armed Forces, who're either in captivity or battling the current scenario to give us peaceful nights. In the midst of these screaming tensions though, a newborn baby in Rajasthan's Nagaur region has been named 'Mirage', after the Mirage 2000 fighter jets, used by the Indian Air Force, in the 26th February's air strikes against Pakistan-based terror camps. © Twitter The baby has officially been christened 'Mirage Singh Rathore' and his father, SS Rathore hopes that his son joins the nations' security forces when he grows up, someday. “We named our child Mirage Rathore to commemorate the strike on Pakistan by the Mirage jets. We hope he will join the security forces when he grows up," He told a local news agency while in conversation with them. © Twitter The boy, obviously born on Tuesday when India went ahead with the air strikes, was named the same to commemorate a memorable day, according to his family. His uncle, who is in the Air Force said he received news of two good developments on Tuesday. One was India's attack on Pakistan territory and the other was the birth of his nephew. Well, this does lean on some solid shreds of patriotism and when Mirage does grow up, we're sure he's going to consider joining the security forces after he finds out the back-story to his name. Well, if you thought the name 'Stalin' was a bit too idealistically communist for little boys growing up in Kerala, then Mirage is definitely going to one-up them with this historic memory that reeks of patriotism. © Reuters In the wee hours of the 26th morning, 12 Mirage-2000 jets entered the Pakistan air space and dropped 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs on Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camp-site, in Balakot. The Mirage-2000, developed by a French company, Dassault Aviation is one of the deadliest aircrafts in existence and it was first commissioned in 1985. It was first recognised when it was used in the Kargil warfare in 1999, following which the Government placed additional orders for 10 more Mirage-2000 jets in 2004, making it a total of 50 jets. © Reuters We're sure it would be an honour for baby Mirage to grow up with a name like that, but without actually flying a Mirage-2000 jet into war, when he does decide to join the forces!
The Indian government made its stance on cross-border terrorism very clear yesterday, as the Indian Air Force (IAF) took on the propagators of terror and destruction left to thrive under Pakistan's aid and protection, in the early hours of 26th February 2019. The Indian Air Force carried out an air-borne, non-military strike on three prime terror locations in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to eliminate terrorists and training camps in the area. The air-strike was carried out using hi-tech fighter jets Mirage 2000s which successfully destroyed the camps of three major terror-outfits - Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba - functioning out of three pivotal centres in the area, namely Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi. #WATCH: Foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale briefs the media in Delhi https://t.co/Th0TjwO99o — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 While very little details about these camps were known earlier, recent reports suggest that JeM's Syed Ahmad Shaheed's centre in Balakot, which also served as a prime location for terror outfits as a 'jihad launchpad', was no less than a 5-star resort situated atop lush green hills in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Here are all the inside details on the architecture and hi-tech facilities in the Balakot terror camp, as reported by an exclusive TOI report: · Started in 2003-2004, the Balakot facility spread over six acres of forest area and boasted of large halls and dormitories, which could house more than 600 people at a time. · The training ground spread across a whopping two-acre clearing where the terrorists would reportedly light bonfires and train.

With an aim to outdo its previous installment, director Ahmed Khan has decided to send Tiger to a military boot camp in Syria, where he will be receiving lessons on artillery training. The director wants more virtuosity and finesse in the upcoming movie. Talking about the same, a source close to the maker told Mid-Day, "Ahmed wants Tiger to be attuned to heavy artillery for 'Baaghi 3'. In the course of his research for the movie, Ahmed found out that Syria has great training camps. So, on his insistence, Tiger will head to a military camp there in November, where he will be taught to use weapons like M16, AT4 and rocket launchers." © FoxStarHindi And that's not it, as the maker also aims at shooting 'Baaghi 3' in Syria. The director has already started working on the script and will be shooting a crucial portion of it in the Middle-East. Well, looking at the present political scenario and the intense atmosphere there, the makers will have to wait and see if shooting will be possible. However, we are sure that Tiger will surpass his own performance and set the bar even higher for everyone else in the industry.
