  1. Life can be pretty uncertain. That's the one thing about it which remains a constant till the time we are laid to rest. We never know what's in store for us in the next few seconds, yet we live our lives as though we have years ahead of us. That's a strange sort of optimism almost all of humanity shares collectively. So, when 32-year-old tour guide Rouf Ahmad Dar stepped out for another day at work, he wouldn't have imagined what awaited him later in the day. While he was out on a rafting trip with five tourists, their boat capsized on the Lidder river in Jammu and Kashmir's Pahalgam area. Rouf Ahmad Dar - a real hero who saved the lives of few tourists at the expense of his own life... Let's all pray for eternal peace to the departed soul and strength to the bereaved family. pic.twitter.com/0xYdfsRE77 — Arif Amin (@ArifAmin18) June 1, 2019 Dar went out of his way, put his own life on the line and rescued all the five tourists, bringing them to safety, but at the cost of his own life. Dar, who held a diploma in rafting, was on the boat when strong evening winds toppled the boat with the tourists still on it. But tragedy had already struck as Dar drowned in the raging waters of the Lidder and was later pulled out of the water near the Bhawani Bridge area and handed over to his family. The braveheart didn't think twice before risking his own life to save the lives of strangers. Setting the finest example of selfless courage; Tourist guide Rouf Ahmad Dar sacrificed his life saving five people including two foreigners in #Lidder river in #Pahalgam. RIP braveheart of#Kashmir @NorthernComd_IA @adgpi @PIB_India pic.twitter.com/bduKgnBiL2 — Chinar Corps - Indian Army (@ChinarcorpsIA) June 1, 2019 At a time when people are constantly instigating communal thoughts and questioning secularism in the country, selfless souls like Rouf Ahmad Dar prove that all of us are capable of moving past the politics that underline our present reality and chase after the biggest religion that there is - humanity. Bravehearts like Dar are cropping up in every village, valley and city to let people see the real face and sentiment that simmers in the heart of our nation and gives us hope that regardless of all the ugliness that comes to pass, humanity will always win.
  2. The Pulwama attack has shaken the country, and pulled a few raw strings that should not have been meddled with. Kashmir is a sensitive issue for the Indian subcontinent, merely because we consider it a part of us and one of our own. While some notorious elements continuously try to turn the youth of the valley against their own brethren, and often succeed in brainwashing them into believing otherwise, the mutual sense of belonging-ness and unity continues to blow strong in the valleys. © Facebook In a show of solidarity and love for the nation, its people and the armed forces, over 2,500 young men from Jammu & Kashmir turned up for army recruitment drive in Baramulla. An official spoke to ANI and said that, thousands of young Kashmiri boys turned up to serve their nation, for recruitment for 111 vacant posts in the Indian Army. Apart from earning a livelihood and protecting their families, these hopeful young men also told ANI that getting hired would also give them the opportunities to share their side of the story with the rest of the country, raise awareness and sensitise fellow Indians about the crisis in the Kashmir valley. © ANI "We cannot go outside Kashmir. This is a great opportunity for us. We wish that more vacancies are offered to us. If Kashmiri personnel will be deployed in the sensitive areas then they can talk to the people and deal with the ongoing crisis", an aspiring candidate was quoted as saying to ANI. Jammu & Kashmir: Several Kashmiri youth take part in an army recruitment drive for 111 vacancies in Baramulla. Bilal Ahmad, army aspirant says, "We will get the chance to sustain our families and serve our nation, what else can one want?" pic.twitter.com/bmtMdYfvsk — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 It must also be told that the rate of unemployment in the area is high with over 26% of youngsters between the age of 18-29 being unemployed. Economic Survey 2017 stated "unsupportive administrative and regulatory framework and lack of transparency" as the main reason behind this state of unemployment.
  3. The Pulwama terror attack has left the entire nation in a state of horror and shock. Over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives in the terrorist attack and a state of grave remorse and grief has struck everyone. © Twitter In the aftermath of the Pulwama attacks, a lot of Kashmiri students across the country have been under threat of verbal and physical violence and even though communal hatred is not something that is preached in a democracy, it is sad to know and witness that something like this can still fall upon us. As a result, many Kashmiri students are trying to run back home but it is not possible to be dislocated for something they are not even responsible for, right? In North India, Delhi and Dehradun have reported a big number of retaliation attacks on Kashmiri students. Khalsa Aid organisation has come forward to offer help to all distressed students and is even helping students go back home. In the midst of angst & hatred @Khalsa_Aid stands out for love & humanity This pic showing transportation of Kashmiri students by Khalsa Aid volunteers from Dehradun & Chandigarh @BDUTT @Nidhi @ReallySwara#Pulwama #PulwamaAttack #Kashmiri #KashmirTerrorAttack pic.twitter.com/YBihZ90Dh5 — Angad Singh (@Angad_Pb) February 19, 2019 We are all kashmiris thanks to @Khalsa_Aid proud on you #seikhcommunity help our students provide shelters foods.. Alhamdulillah all kashmiris feel safe in #Gurudwara Really Singh is king Humanity example Brotherhood pic.twitter.com/7yVD0eys4x — Liaquat Tanha (@liaquat_tanha) February 19, 2019 Besides providing transportation and helping the students relocate, the good Samaritans at Khalsa Aid are ensuring that they are provided with all sanitation needs and food as well. There are so many Muslim organisations in India be it Jamat-e-Islami Hind, Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Hind, Owaisis, Madnis and all. Nobody came to the rescue of Kashmiri students But Sikh organisations @Khalsa_Aid did... Sikh friends in Punjab did a commendable... Allah bless you all pic.twitter.com/X73WeprKi8 — Liaquat Tanha (@liaquat_tanha) February 19, 2019 More than 20 buses have been arranged and funded for Kashmiri students to travel from Punjab to Kashmir. Kashmiri Students : Our India team continues to assist the Kashmiri students with safe evacuation. We have so far funded 20 buses from Panjab to Kashmir. Our Tnx to all the amazing volunteers who assisted @amarpreet1313 with this task...@RisingKashmir pic.twitter.com/UDO2tQYK0r — Khalsa Aid (@Khalsa_Aid) February 19, 2019 Needless to say, nothing at all is done to earn goodwill or prove a point. The point here is simple: humanity is the biggest religion of them all. If we can learn from this example and do our bit, then we succeed as humans. For all @Khalsa_Aid has done for Kashmiri people in the past few days deserves our utmost respect. The Sikh brethren has come to our aid when we needed them the most. They represent the difference between the educated people and the literate people. — Sheikh Hamzah (@sheikh_hamzah) February 19, 2019 This is creating the real goodwill, brotherhood. The Kashmiris can only offer â¤â¤â¤ @Khalsa_Aid https://t.co/4FkoQBwm0M — Ishfaq Tantry (@ishfaqtantry) February 18, 2019 I am thankful to all Sikh Community @Khalsa_Aid behalf of me, behalf of Whole Kashmiries for protecting our sisters and brothers in India.. our prayers and love will remain with you.. thank you so much. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/IcPZXrEXDw — Liaquat Tanha (@liaquat_tanha) February 19, 2019 Let's try to unite and deal with the problem at hand like a nation should. Driving away students in the name of communal hatred gives no results. The Khalsa Aid has always proved to be a stellar example of humanity and the organisation consists of true heroes who believe in the concept of 'seva'. Kashmiri students,who studies in punjab,dehradun nd other states,came to gurudwara singh shaheeda bcoz of insecurities faced.all facilities provided to them nd @Khalsa_Aid provided them transportation to j&k nd assured security frm punjab police#PulwamaAttack#Prabhas pic.twitter.com/VI8Wij43VE — Harpreet Kaur Narwal (@HarpreetPrabhas) February 19, 2019 Fixed my heart, restored my faith in humanity and said my thanks.

  4. 'Game of Thrones' is hands down one of the most popular TV series of recent times, and we simply cannot ignore the ardent fan following the show enjoys. From mind-boggling fan theories to crazy fans going out of their way to prove their loyalty, 'Games of Thrones' can boast of it all. © HBO However, much like it is the case with most fandoms, GOT fans have also proven their allegiance to the show time and again. So it is only expected that the makers of 'Game of Thrones' be gracious towards this outpouring of faith and support from fans all around the world. Well, seems like the GOT team has taken note of its fans' undying love for the show, and they decided to share it with the rest of the world. So HBO recently released its own 'Fan Anthem' #ForTheThrone on GOT's official YouTube channel, ahead of the premiere of the last season in April. The video is a visual montage of tributes GOT fans paid to show, and the best part is that it includes the musical tribute of a 18-year-old Kashmiri boy. Sufiyan Malik from Srinagar in Kashmir can be seen in the video, playing the traditional Rabab, which has been taken from his Game of Thrones tribute video called 'The Cure'. As if the haunting and soulful musical tribute itself was not enough, the video play out is absolutely stunning with its picturisation, and choice of location. But what's more, Tyrion and the Night King also make a cameo appearance in the tribute video! You gotta check out the tribute, 'cause Sufiyan Malik did all of us GOT fans out there real proud.
  5. Famous for its beautiful mountainous landscapes and holy shrines, the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) has truly lived up to its tag of 'paradise on earth'. If the natural beauty enticed the visitors, the artistry of local artisans further allowed the J&K handicrafts industry to make a name across the globe for their exquisite designs and craftsmanship. But, the Indian state that was once labelled as the 'Valley Of Paradise' has undeniably become the 'Valley Of Death'. Today, this strife-torn state is only famous for the bleak stories of violence, lethal attacks, militant insurgency and never-ending protests. The education system has degraded to the extent of almost being non-existent. The infrastructure is still a work in progress. The supplies are limited. And, to top it all, the presence of Indian military forces has led to restricted movements of the locals in their very own state. While the situation is not yet ideal in the region, the youth in J&K have found solace in sports in a bid to escape all that has affected them and their families over the years. We've seen the likes of Parvez Rasool making a name for himself in cricket, and, more recently, the spirited Real Kashmir football team proving their mettle in the ever-competitive I-League. Now, the beautiful state of J&K has given India another sporting gem in the form of Saqlain Tariq. © Pro Volleyball League Born in Poonch - one of the most remote districts of J&K, bounded by Line of Control (LoC) on three sides, Tariq has spent a major part of his life hiding from insurgency and consistent shelling which often resulted in the loss of life and property. Evacuating his house, taking shelter in makeshift places and haunted by the fact that any moment could be his last; Saqlain faced it all. While the youngsters of his age would ideally find themselves cribbing over gadgets and other material gains, Saqlain was just happy to be alive. In a place where breathing was no less than a luxury, Saqlain knew that there wasn't much he could do. His education took a toll, getting a job was always going to be difficult and the future looked bleak. But, just when all hope seemed lost, the 21-year-old found a ray of hope in volleyball - a sport that gave him an identity and made him feel that he mattered. Picking up the sport at the age of six, Saqlain's journey in volleyball was greatly influenced by his family's support and enthusiasm for the game. "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my family. They've supported me in the thick and thin of life. All my achievements in volleyball is an outcome of their beliefs in me," emotions get the better of Saqlain as he credits his family. "Since I could remember, my father was running a local volleyball club in Poonch. He used to take me to the practice sessions when I was a kid. Over the years, I developed a liking towards the sport. But then, there were some problems. It wasn't that easy," the 21-year-old reveals before getting comfortable in the couch. © Pro Volleyball League Saqlain's mother, just like our own, was overwhelmed by the fear of losing him every time he went out to practice. "She (mother) was really concerned about my well-being. Given our state of affairs, she was probably right in her own domain to fear for my life. After all, she had lost her loved ones and seen too much in her life. But, this is where my dad stood out and ensured nothing was going to affect my growth as a volleyball player," he adds further. Honing his skills and improving his game at his father's facility, Saqlain's talent was just too hard to go unnoticed. And, this when his father Mohammad Tariq Khan, a state-level volleyball player himself, took a call that would eventually change the life of his son. "My father couldn't make the cut for the national team. And, he knew, if I stayed here (J&K), my fate will be the same. I would have faced survival issues and, maybe, I would have become a stone pelter. So, against the liking of my mother and other family members, he sent me to Khanna (near Ludhiana) for studies," Saqlain recalls with a smile on his face. But, for a youngster who shares a close bond with his parents and never left his home earlier, staying away from family wasn't easy for Saqlain. "I was there (in Khanna) for a few months before the homesickness crept in. For the first time in my life, I was on my own, dealing with day-to-day problems by myself. It took a toll on me. And, as a result, I told my father that I want to return home," the 6-feet-3-inches tall player reveals. "My father spoke to the warden to grant me a few days leave and I returned home. I was happy that I was finally going to see my family and all. But, my father wasn't happy with my decision. When I reached home, my father didn't speak me to me once. And, after a day or so, I realised why. Realising the sacrifices of my parents and the dreams they had for me, I was left with no option, but to return to Khanna. And, the moment I told my father about my decision, he was elated," Saqlain talks about the learning curve that went on to play a pivotal role in his journey as a volleyball player. © Pro Volleyball League Since that day, there was no turning back for this youngster. He played his first nationals for J&K when he was in the eighth standard and rose through the ranks on the back of an improved showing in the domestic circuit. Soon, he found his way into the national team. Named as the captain of the Indian team, Saqlain had his international outing at the Asian Championship in Sri Lanka in 2014 when he was just 17. Thriving in the position of a setter, Saqlain also went on to represent India at the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) Games where he played a crucial role in his side's bronze-medal finish last year. "When I went abroad to participate in the international tournaments, I was kind of shocked to see the level of competition there. Countries like China, Japan and South Korea have dominated the sport in Asia. But, the fact that Iran surprised everyone with a gold medal in men's volleyball at the 2018 Asiad shows that it's all about improving. It was something that we (Indian players) can learn from. That's why I always cherish international exposure," Saqlain makes a valid point. On the back of hard work and perseverance, Saqlain, then, managed to convince U Mumba Volley to shell out a whopping Rs 1.1 lakh for his services in the upcoming edition of the Pro Volleyball League (PVL). An initiative of Baseline Ventures and Volleyball Federation Of India, the first edition of the PVL is set to begin on 2nd February with Kochi Blue Spikers taking on U Mumba Volley in the first match. The league will see six teams fighting for the title which will be lifted by the winner on 22nd February in the final in Chennai. "I have waited for a long time to get an opportunity like the Pro Volleyball League. I want to thank the Volleyball Federation of India to bring such a league to the fore. It is going to be very beneficial for players like me. Since it also involves foreign players, the league will help us in improving our game by learning new things from them. It's a great platform for the Indian players to prove their mettle and popularise the game in the country," Saqlain lauds the advent of Pro Volleyball League. © Pro Volleyball League As a 21-year-old, Saqlain's love for Punjabi songs and, more particularly, for Bohemia might make him just another youngster, but when asked about his message for the youth in the Valley, Saqlain answered with maturity. "Sports are the need of the hour for the Kashmiri youth. I have so many youngsters calling me up and seeking guidance. And, I always encourage them to brave all odds and maintain their self-belief. Our state has so much talent across sports, but the lack of facilities and training centres hasn't helped their cause. I would really urge the concerned authorities to take notice of the talent from the Valley and nurture them with a prospect of making the country proud," Saqlain signs off. Coming from a region where people have a hard time focussing on their lives, Saqlain didn't just survive, but he concentrated on the very thing that acted as an escape route from all the hardships - his love for volleyball. From living in fear to becoming the first spiker from his state to represent India in any age group, Saqlain, at a tender age, has become a beacon of hope and is the perfect embodiment of success derived against all odds, on the back of persistent hard work.
  6. Three Lashkar-e-Toiba militants were gunned down by Indian security forces on December 9th in Mujgund in an 18-hour-long encounter, on the outskirts of Srinagar. Among the militants was Saqib Bilal, a teenager who had a cameo in Shahid Kapoor's hit movie 'Haider' in 2014. © VB Pictures Saqib and another boy from Hajin Bandipora had left their homes on August 31st, following which the distraught families launched a search to bring their sons back, but to no avail. “For more than a month, we went to places to find them. Ultimately, we realised the unthinkable. He had an interest in engineering. We could never understand why he joined. In fact, he left home on the day to buy some groceries. People had seen the two boys riding behind a third person on a bike”, Saqib's uncle Asim Aijaz was quoted saying by the Hindustan Times. Saqib's father asserted that his son was an avid lover of football and acting and that militancy and the state of turmoil in Kashmir was never discussed by him. “He was in his sixth class when he appeared for two brief shots in Haider which have appeared in the film. In one of the shots he appeared as a 'chocolate boy' and in another, he acted of surviving a violent incident in a bus. Before his Haider stint, he appeared in a stage show 'Weath chi Yeahi (This is the river)' at Tagore Hall in which he was the protagonist. He managed to get an award and even went to Odisha to repeat the performance,” Aijaz said. © AP Saqib was cremated with thousands thronging to attend his funeral.
  7. The Indian cricket team has been blessed with a variety of spinners across all formats. With the Virat Kohli-led side currently battling the Australians in the first Test, Ravichandran Ashwin - who has become a Test specialist for his country - was seen bamboozling the hosts at the Adelaide Oval. The Indian offie picked three crucial wickets in the first innings and then claimed two more scalps in the second innings to ensure the visitors are just six wickets away, with one day still left to play, from clinching an emphatic win and taking a 1-0 lead in the four-match series. But, while Ashwin has spun a web around the Aussies to aid his team, a young spinner from Kashmir has taken the social media by storm with his bowling skills. Believe it, or not, a seven-year-old kid from Kashmir boasts of impeccable spin bowling skills that has even impressed Shane Warne. Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition. pic.twitter.com/GEanTVuVME — Mufti Islah (@islahmufti) 23 July 2018 In a video shared by a Jammu & Kashmir-based journalist on the social media, the young boy Ahmad, who hails from Ganderbal district of Kashmir, was seen bowling a googly that initially pitched way outside the line of the wickets before taking a sharp turn of more than a metre and clipped the stumps. “Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition,” the tweet read. This is outstanding ! Well bowled young man ð https://t.co/NfADPHXj4F — Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) 5 December 2018 Taking note of the talented young boy, the former Australian cricketer hailed praise at his bowling skills and tweeted: "This is outstanding! Well bowled young man”. Apart from Warne, the video of the young boy also impressed cricket fans across the globe. The video has already garnered nearly 90k views, while it has been retweeted over 500 times on Twitter.

Keep spinning — Prasant Samal (@SamalPrasant123) 9 December 2018 recruit them young, get Kumble to work with him? — Giri Iyer (@GiriIyer1) 8 December 2018 The caption of the video 'ball of the century' originally refers to Warne's magical delivery that got rid of England's Mike Gatting during the second day's play of the first Test at Old Trafford in 1993. Warne's delivery had pitched outside the leg stump before turning sharply and clipping the top of off-stump. Hailed as the revival point of spin bowling in Test cricket, the delivery was later termed as 'ball of the century' by the cricketing fraternity.
