  1. We only get to realise how uncertain life really is when we come across incidents like these. While our thoughts go out to the family members of the army soldiers who lost their lives in the bizarre fire in Mhow, we can't help but ponder the odds of something like this happening. On Thursday, a team of snipers of the Indian Army were target-practicing in Mhow, a cantonment in the Indore district in Madhya Pradesh. Like any other regular day practice, the soldiers were wearing their gille suits, an outfit made up of dry leaves and grass to help the shooters camouflage with the surroundings. Suddenly, a wildfire wrapped the shooters around out of nowhere taking away the lives of two while severely injuring nine others. Army Sources: Two Indian Army soldiers killed in fire incident at the Bercha and Hema ranges in Mhow near Indore today. Fire was caused due to spark during firing practice. #MadhyaPradesh — ANI (@ANI) April 4, 2019 “Two Indian Army soldiers were killed in a fire incident at the Bercha firing range in Mhow near indore. The fire was caused due to spark during firing practice,” ANI reports Army officials saying. According to Additional SP Mhow Dharmraj Meena, Ranjit Sumer, 27, Jhunjhunu resident in Rajasthan and Akshya Ramsingh, 25, a resident of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh, were the two soldiers who died dousing the flames. Meena also mentioned that some of the injured soldiers were also airlifted to the nearest hospital for emergency treatment. However, three out of the remaining nine have been deemed to be in critical condition and have been moved to Delhi for better care.

  3. Think of the toughest or the hardest role possible, and for Bollywood's OG Khiladi Akshay Kumar, portraying it will still be child's play. Be it creating awareness on cleanliness and building toilets or teaching people about women's sanitary issues, Akshay Kumar has always impressed his fans with his versatility. Looks like his next movie, 'Kesari', too will be a blockbuster and the trailer that dropped today is proof. © Dharma Productions The famous Battle of Saragarhi (1891) was one of the bravest battles ever fought in the history. Decades later, Akshay Kumar is all set to recreate that battle in 'Kesari' and the 3-minute trailer speaks volumes about the valour and courage of those 21 Sikh Soldiers (of the British Indian contingent) who fought against 10,000 Afghan invaders. © Dharma Productions Talking about the trailer, the fight scenes and war sequences are brilliantly shot and the dialogues spear right through our hearts. Honestly, we are not surprised because when its Akshay Kumar, people expect nothing but the best from him. This time too, the actor has not disappointed us at all. Parineeti Chopra too has a 'blink and miss' appearance in the trailer. Directed by Anurag Singh and produced by Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar, 'Kesari' is expected to release on Holi i.e. March 21. 'Kesari' also stars Siddhant Sharma, Ashwath Bhatt, Pawan Malhotra and Rana Ranbir.
  4. We just celebrated India's 70th Republic Day and while both patriotism and our pride seem to run equally high on that day, there's something to be said about the dormancy of this patriotism and pride throughout the rest of the year. As a nation, we are a bunch of highly passionate people tightly strung together by our sense of freedom, entitlement and notions of nationalism, that springs to life every time anything to do with the Armed Forces is mentioned, even in passing. © Indian Defence Review It's true that we don't get to see these superheroes live in action very often, but the few times that we got to witness their daredevilry and astute desire to serve the country, we felt nothing but awe mixed with respect, and an immense sense of pride for our warriors. But while such moments are few and far in between, we have the opportunity to witness the bedazzling spirit of our Siachen warriors before heading out for a rescue operation, as the entire unit comes together during the induction, responding to the war cry of 'how's the josh', which will give you major goosebumps! Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri' is touching newer heights literally. Won't you say? We feel strongly and almost fanatically about these men and women who dare to face death in their line of duty, and rightly so. After all, we owe so much of the life we're living to them. It is their sacrifice and selfless passion to serve the country and its people, that allows us to enjoy the kind of safe and fun life we lead, day after day. Salute to these warriors and their josh!
  5. Be it making movies on social yet sensitive issues, coming to the rescue of acid attack survivors, to standing with the families of martyrs in tough times, Akshay Kumar has never refrained from going that extra mile for the country and society. He even urged his fans to contribute to 'Bharat Ke Veer', an initiative launched by him and the Government of India, for the bravehearts and their families. This Republic Day lets do our duty for the Bravehearts kyunki woh hain toh hum hain. Contributions to @BharatKeVeer are now exempted under 80(G) of the Income Tax Act. So log onto https://t.co/XL9ubTxtrg now to contribute. pic.twitter.com/t2Ok7nSTcB — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 26, 2019 Today, the whole nation is celebrating its 70th Republic Day, and so is Bollywood's OG Khiladi, Akshay Kumar in his own unique style. Though it is our 70th Republic Day, people have fighting for our rights and for the country since time immemorable. And, there couldn't have been a better opportunity than today, for Akshay to share the story of 21 brave Sikh soldiers. Twitter/ Akshay Kumar We're talking about his upcoming movie 'Kesari', the new poster of which was shared by the 51-year-old actor on social media. Akshay wrote, "Happy Republic Day. It's our #70thRepublicDay but our men have been fighting for the country since time unknown. 122 years ago, 21 Sikhs fought against 10000 invaders. #KESARI is their story, in cinemas on March 21." With this tweet, he even announced the release date of 'Kesari' ie. March 21. Happy Republic Day. It's our #70thRepublicDay but our men have been fighting for the country since time unknown. 122 years ago, 21 Sikhs fought against 10000 invaders.#KESARI is their story, in cinemas on March 21. pic.twitter.com/oCUZ6UVdqY — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 26, 2019 The new poster shows 21 Sikh soldiers standing in the form of a pyramid with Akshay Kumar standing in the middle, wearing an orange turban and holding a rifle in his hand. 'Kesari' is based on the Battle of Saragarhi and revolves around the Sikh regiment who, despite being outnumbered, fought against the Afghan army with all their might in the 1890s. Given his love for fitness, there was no way on earth Akshay could have let this day slide by like that. While we were busy gorging on delicious food in the morning or watching the parade, Akshay celebrated Republic Day by going on a hike with wife Twinkle and daughter Nitara. Woke up at the crack of dawn and went hiking with the family, high on the #RepublicDay spirit. pic.twitter.com/q0yWHloB0n — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 26, 2019
  6. When the sun rose on 17th November 1962, it was a new day full of opportunities and newer possibilities for every person. The early winter morning didn't betray the hidden chain of events that were to unravel as the day progressed. 21-year-old Jaswant Singh Rawat, of the famed Garhwal Rifles Regiment, was deployed in the NEFA region on this fateful day along with his unit - 4 Garhwal Rifles. The Indo-China war in the northeastern region of Nuranang (present-day Arunachal Pradesh) was soon to face the fourth assault from the Chinese Army, the final one after its two previous attacks were neutralised by his battalion. An attack that would turn this young braveheart into a legend. © YouTube Born on 19th August 1941 to Guman Singh Rawat in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, Jaswant joined the Indian Army on 19th August 1960, aged 19 years, as a Rifleman. On 17th November 1962, when the troops of Garhwal Rifles were ordered to retreat from the Battle of Nuranang, Jaswant refused to budge and desert his post. It was the last phase of the war, which had otherwise fared poorly for the Indian Army, as the Indian troops began to fray from a shortage of manpower and ammunition. So when the Chinese attacked that morning from the Sela top, they did not expect to encounter the daredevilry and rare courage of a young Indian soldier to come in their way and destroy their bigger plans. © YouTube The attack, which started on the morning on 17th November, went on for the next seventy-two hours. At one point, when the Chinese came to close to his company with an MMG, Jaswant decided to make the ultimate sacrifice and went ahead to neutralise it with Lance Naik Trilok Singh Negi and Rifleman Gopal Singh Gusain. In the events that followed, Jaswant held on to his post alone, fired continuously from different bunkers, and ended up killing almost 300 Chinese soldiers single-handedly, before he was fatally injured by the Chinese. This one selfless act turned the course of the entire battle and helped the Indian troops get an edge. The Indian Army was able to stop the Chinese progress into Arunachal Pradesh. It turned Jaswant into a legend and the locals have event erected a Buddhist temple at the spot. © Wikipedia Not just the locals, but even the Indian Army has kept Jaswant alive amongst them. According to an India Times report, a hut has been constructed on the spot where he was Martyred. The bed placed inside the hut is kept neat and tidy by the Army jawans posted there, while his shoes are regularly polished and letters sent to Jaswant are kept in the hut for Jaswant to read, and taken away the following day. It is also believed that this fourth assault gave rise to the legend of Baba Jaswant Singh who guards the Indian borders in the East. The locals also give a different account of the of the events that unravelled that day. They believe that when Jaswant's company fell back, he remained at his post. Then along with the help of two Monpa porter-girls, he set up weapons at different spots and kept firing at the Chinese troops in rotation, which created an illusion that the Chinese were facing the entire battalion instead of just one soldier. © Rediff/Rajesh Karkera It was only when the Chinese captured the man who supplied Jaswant with ration that they realised the actual situation. Following this revelation, one of the Monpa girls was killed in a grenade attack and the other was captured, while Jaswant killed himself by shooting a bullet to his head to prevent his own capture. No matter which version of the story we wish to believe, there is no denying the show of ultimate courage and sacrifice by him when was faced with a possibility that could cost his country a part of it's being and identity. Jaswant Singh Rawat, who was awarded the Maha Vir Chakra (posthumously), deserves to be remembered as the hero that he is, by one and all.
  7. While women don't have to worry about finding the right grooming products that will help them combat skin and/or hair problems, men have to look a lot harder.

  8. With his performances in movies like 'Raazi', 'Sanju' and 'Manmarziyaan'; actor Vicky Kaushal has proved that he is one of the finest and most versatile actors in Bollywood right now. After a successful stint in 'Manmarziyaan' opposite Taapsee Pannu and Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal is back with a bang in another kickass military drama, 'Uri'. © RSVP Movies 'Uri' is a movie based on Indian Army's surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC). If the first look of the movie wasn't enticing enough, the makers just dropped this teaser today and let's just say, it's going to be one of the most promising movies of 2019. © RSVP Movies The teaser shows Vicky Kaushal leading a group of paratroopers in the surgical strikes, post the attack on the Indian Army camp in Uri, Kashmir. It was a defining moment in India's military history and the teaser successfully captures the intensity and the gravity of the tense situation and the passion with which our brave soldiers avenged the death of the soldiers who were martyred. Check out the teaser here. Directed by Aditya Dhar, 'Uri' also stars Yami Gautam (as an intelligence officer) and Paresh Rawal, and is expected to release on January 11, 2019.
  9. Most tales that have to do with India and Pakistan are usually related to conflict. But, in a rare moment captured in Russia, the soldiers from the two warring nations were spotted dancing together on Punjabi and Bollywood songs. The soldiers of India and Pakistan were attending 'Bharatiya Divas', an event organised by the Indian Army and members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), in Russia. Reportedly, the soldiers of both the countries were attending a summit to participate in Peaceful Mission 2018. It is a mock anti-terror exercise that was held at Chebarkul from August 22 to 29. In this video, the soldiers are seen dancing on a popular song by Diljit Dosanjh.

This is a rare show of camaraderie that's hard to ignore. Source: NDTV
  10. What is a super soldier? The usual answer would be: the one who is equipped with top-notch weaponry and possesses absolute man-to-man combat skills. Well, that is true but if you nosedive into the philosophy of creating a super soldier, things move beyond the understanding of many. The talk about a super solider should start with a very basic question: how strong is he? Strip him off his weapons and put him in a hostile zone, what is he left with to survive? Well, that would be his strength to kill with bare hands. Wars know no rules. Kill before you get killed. Close quarter man-to-man battles are ugly. Before you can reach for your gun tucked in a holster, you can have your throat stabbed. Here's where strength to kill with 'bare hands' comes in. So, what do we do to make the strong even stronger? The answer is simple: put the Indian Army soldiers on Anabolic steroids. Duplicating The Hollywood Fantasies © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas Know Captain America? Steve Rogers, the snail-sized soldier was put into a casket and came out as an invincible super strong, bullet-crunching-alien-killing super soldier. While the armies around the world have toyed around with the idea of developing sci-fi weaponry, nothing much has been done on the genetic or chemical enhancement front. Rumors have it that Nazi juiced the SS but there's no proof to solidify those claims. So has any Army done it yet? Read on. You will be surprised. The Australian Experiment 1998 © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas In 1998, the Australian authorities discovered that a lot of their soldiers in their Elite Forces were using Anabolic Steroids. Instead of taking stringent action against this, the authorities embraced the fact. Their ideology was- 'if anything increases the survival rate of our soldiers, it is OK!' The authorities even laid out certain guidelines for use of steroids in the military. Somehow the press (Sydney Morning) got hold of this idea and created a public panic. Eventually, the program got terminated and steroids were pulled away from military usage. The below mentioned article links are from the Sydney Morning Herald, dated 2010, and talk about Australian soldiers using performance enhancing steroids. All the links are forbidden and it's not hard to guess why. https://www.smh.com.au/world/three-soldiers-on-steroids-given-marching-orders-20101115-17udz.html https://www.smh.com.au/world/steroidabusing-australian-soldiers-sent-home-in-disgrace-20100607-xquy.html US Military Health Editorial 2016 © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas The US Military is also exploring the advantages of chemically enhancing their soldiers. The researchers at the 2016 Consortium of Health and Military Performance symposium suggested 5 primary agendas the Military must consider. Astonishingly, one of these was the further exploration of steroid use, including the costs and benefits. The interest aroused from an anonymous survey in the US Army Rangers which found out that 1/4th of soldiers had taken Anabolics or some form of performance-enhancing drug. The authors of the editorial, Lt. Col Chad Peltier and Kyle Pettijohn, PhD, did mention the pros of anabolic steroids and how it can enhance the performance of their men the Special Forces. But they also gave a final statement which gives a subtle hint that use of Anabolic Steroids can be justified in the military. How Will The Soldiers Benefit? 1) Enhanced Stamina = Increased Survival Rate Steroids tend to increase the red blood cell concentrations (oxygen-carrying capacity). Thus, boosts energy and sense of well-being. It also supports the retention of lean body mass, and improves muscle strength and most importantly, endurance. For the surgical strikes against Pakistan in response to the Uri Attacks our soldiers had to trek around 50 Km (one side) into the enemy territory. Once the operation was executed, our soldiers had to break out through the enemy zone in minimum time. Now these men already have remarkable stamina. But what if this could be made better and pushed to a superhuman level. It would only increase the survival rate of our men. Note - Unlike steroid abuse (which most bodybuilders do), controlled hormone therapy may have benefits with regard to cardiovascular health. For example, studies tend to show hormone replacement as having a positive effect on serum lipids which includes a reduction in LDL and total cholesterol levels, combined with no significant change in HDL (good) cholesterol levels. 2) Increased Muscle Mass = Increased Strength Levels This is perhaps the most evident benefit of steroids, due to which many strength athletes have been accused of administering it: superior strength levels. You might wonder that if our soldier doesn't have to squat 250Kg in a battlefield, then why do they need high levels of strength? Well, on an average a soldier would be carrying a backpack weighing anywhere between 30 and 65Kg. The load can increase during special operations. If our men have greater strength to carry the load, they can be equipped with more ammunition, inevitably making them more lethal. “To observe the above performance enhancements, super high bodybuilding dosages need not be administered. Such high dosages will undeniably do more harm than good.” Non-Steroid Substances For Increased Alertness & Concentration © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas Staying mentally alert is extremely important for any soldier. Often, our soldiers operate for extended hours with little to no sleep. Lack of sleep can decline cognitive functioning which can be a matter of life and death. There are FDA-approved drugs which stimulate the central nervous system safely and effectively. Drug M (name not disclosed for safety reasons) has been shown to successfully help in the treatment of many mental disorders. It belongs to eugeroics ('good arousal'), designed to promote a mental state of vigilance and alertness. One advantage of this drug is that it has much lower potential for abuse due to the fact that it produces a lower sense of euphoria. The U.S. military is quite interested in this drug, for enhancing energy levels of pilots and combat soldiers that need to operate for long periods of time without sleep. Soldiers on drug M have reported maintaining excellent cognitive functioning for up to 40 hours without sleep, and have fewer side effects. “Indian Air Force: The Go-No-Go Pill Test Use of anabolic steroids is rampant in defence forces around the world and it is a well-planned initiative. Imitating such initiatives, the Indian Defence Forces also have been experimenting on their soldiers. For example- the famous 'Go-no-go' pills were tested on pilots while I was serving in the IAF. These are being used by pilots to combat fatigue and heighten alertness during combat. First time it was used in the Exercise LiveWire, says report from Times of India Feb 08 report. Handling highly stressful situations becomes more difficult when sleep-deprivation and fatigue come into play, and can negatively affect decision-making ability. After the adrenaline-rush of the Go Pill, the No-Go Pill is used to offset its effect in order to rest before the next mission. - Akshay Chopra, Ex Indian Air Force Pilot And Fitness Professional” What Is The Future? The worst outcome in a battlefield is death. Everything else (including side effects of the drugs) can be dealt with later once our soldier survives the extremes. There are 1.4 million active soldiers serving in the Indian army; putting all of them on some form of drugs does not make any sense. But the ones involved in special operations and guarding the sensitive areas (LOC in Siachen, Jungles in the Northeast) can definitely benefit from this. So, the question is not whether the Indian defence forces will use performance enhancing substances on the soldiers, because the answer, invariably, would always be no. The question is whether we are ready to raise a crop of front line soldiers who are enhanced beyond their natural genetic capacities? © Facebook, Yudh Abhyas
