While everyone is busy discussing who is/isnt entitled to SPG security, all Indians should take a minute to extend our gratitude to General Arunkumar Shridhar Vaidya PVSM, MVC, & Bar, AVSM (1/n)

#OperationBlueStar #IndianArmy
In June ,84, 2yrs away from his retirement, he designed & supervised Operation BlueStar. Everyone remembers the bloodbath this triggered.

When General Vaidya retired to Pune in Jan 1986, he became a civilian and his security was handed over to the Pune police (2/n)
All he got was a police officer with a revolver, accompanying him. His attitude remained stoic. "After seeing two wars I can't run away from danger. If a bullet is destined to get me it will come with my name written on it."

And so this bullet found him, on 10-Aug-1986

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

Experts say #IndiaChinaFaceOff will turn out the following way:-
Clause 7 and it's sub clauses are so very possible and really scary.
A nationalist once said -  
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.....
.....An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself......
...For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly....

-Images by @Nrg8000 spotted a camp at #GalwanValleyFaceOff on 22.05.2020
-Images by @Reuters spot debris in the area on 16.06.2020

-#India said #China set up a temp structure that led to the clash, media said the #IndianArmy Col burnt it down

Composite image below Image
Adding this comparison between the 9-16 of June as well that shows the camp did indeed leave some time between may & june but debris arrived instead at the same spot --- via @Reuters Image
Lastly a camp there treated as a forward outpost makes a lot of sense since its "line of sight" would allow either side to watch the other's activities in the area, the only issue is this patch of land lies in #India as per the #China claim line Image

Today 17th June is historical day in history of J&K,particularly in light of present stand off with China.
Under great Maharaja Gulab Singh(who extended the borders of J&K till Tibet & Baltistan):
Dogra forces defeated Chinese forces in 1841 in absense of modern technology in-30°
On 17 June 1822 Maharaja Gulab Singh was anointed in a colourful ceremony on West bank of Chenab.
He was a Dogra Rajput of Suryavanshi Jamwal clan.
Gradually he brought under his control most of the regions around Jammu.
Our claim on Aksai Chin today, is coz of him & Gen Zorawar.
General Zorawar Singh one of thr greatest generals that this country ever produced was a Chandel Rajput from HP, who with his Military valour & able leadership won areas of Ladakh, Gilgit Baltistan and included them in J&K. He marched up to Lake Mansarovar and won areas of Tibet.

My dear fellow "patriotic" Indians not the mouth pieces of Pakistan or China, in the coming time the tension with China will spike up and they will try to use us to lower our moral down.
They will ruthlessly use the information warfare and spread all sorts of videos showing how powerful they are and all. Reality is that they are bloody hollow and a bunch of cowards. Please don't extend their play by forwarding the videos like we all did when #Abhi was captured.
Please let's not act like fools. If there is a clash and you don't know how to handle it leave your phone and switch off your TV and you will be doing a service to the country. The army knows very well how to deal with these filthy Chinese PLA.

This is not the time when #China would like to go on war with #India

Their bigger interest and econokical motives lie in POK, be it money or power... it has better strategic value.

#indiachinastandoff seems like buying time or delaying #IndianArmy’s move in POK.
Pakistan losing POK is China losing CPEC and entry route to central EU, investmens doobege woh alag.

POK gone means China will not be able to provide military support to pakistan, air route over India is not an option anyways...forget Sea.
On contrary, POK under India means sharing border with afghanistan, threat to pakistan.

India can have direct land export route into Central EU

Gas line from Tajikistan, development of the region.

Indian army will uproot terror launchpads in POK bringing peace in the region

#Thread on untold story of 1962 indo-china war

We all know that we lost in 1962 with china. Have you ever thought why we lost to china? An army who have never failed in any operation, how it failed to china, which was considered as weak in 1962?
#IndiaChinaFaceOff #IndianArmy Image
There is an untold story behind it-

V.K krishna menon who was indian defence minister in 1962. He was very close to nehru.

On October 8, 1959, Lt Gen SPP Thorat , then responsible for Eastern Command, sent a report about the “Chinese Threat on India’s borders is worth citing”, Image
to the Army chief, who forwarded it to the menon.

Thorat’s findings were outright rejected by Menon and, worse, Thorat was accused of being an “alarmist and a warmonger”.

भाईयों और बहनों अगर थोड़ी भी देशभक्ति हो तो चीन का माल कभी मत खरीदना क्योंकि वो भारत के पैसे से ही बम, मिसाइल और बंदूकें बनाता है और भुगतते कौन है हमारे वीर जवान।
जरा सोचो वो तुम्हारे जवानों को लात-जूते और कील लगे डंडो से मारते हैं और तुम उनके लिए थोड़ा सा भी नहीं कर सकते।
सोचो अगर तुम्हारा भाई, पिता या और कोई सँगा संबधी होता तो तुम्हें कैसा लगता।
इसलिए आज ही शपथ लो मैं बिन फोन के रह लूँगा परंतु चीन का फोन नहीं खरीदूंगा चीनी माल का बहिष्कार करूँगा।
तुम बंदूक लेके अगर लड़ नहीं सकते तो कम से कम चीनी माल खरीद कर चीन को बंदूक बनाने के पैसे तो न दो।
अंततः यही कहना चाहूँगा भारत सरकार को चीन के खिलाफ सख्त से सख्त कदम उठाना चाहिए और चीन के कब्जे वाला भारत पे अपना कब्जा कर लेना चाहिए।
भारत के उन वीरों को शत् शत् नमन जिन्होंने मातृभूमि की रक्षा के लिए अपने प्राण न्यौछावर कर दिये। आप का बलिदान व्यर्थ नही जायेगा। आप की शहादत का

Around 120 #Indian soldiers, almost an entire company, was trapped and encircled by the #Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) and followed by savage and deceptive attacks, many to a point of mutilation, on Monday night, sources said.

#IndiaChinaBorder #Galwan
Pointing firearms on their faces, the #Chinese PLA brutally tortured some #Indian soldiers to death, sources further revealed, adding that the Indian soldiers were helpless with the government directions of not to use firearms.

#IndiaChinaBorder #GalwanValley #IndiaChinaFaceOff
It was not a hand-to-hand fight between the forces, as IANS has learnt and the #PLA troopers used all kinds of weapons against the #Indian soldiers, who bravely fought and tried to control the situation.

3) One #IndianArmy CO (Commanding Officer) was reportedly killed in the clashes last night.

Unconfirmed reports that the #Srinagar to #Ladakh highway is closed to civil transportation.
Military movements only.

This is a bad sign.

On September 2010, Bishnu Shrestha, a 35-year-old Gurkha soldier, was on his way to Gorakhpur from Ranchi. He was travelling via the Maurya Express
(Hatia-Gorakhpur) when between fifteen and forty armed robbers attacked the train near Chittaranjan
West Bengal and robbed the passengers of their valuables.
Shrestha was fast asleep when the bandits reached him. Awakened he was prepared to give up his valuables but the 18-year-old woman next to him was grabbed by the robbers who intended to rape her. The woman called for help.
He pulled out the large, curved kukri knife that all Gurkha soldiers carry and attacked the bandits. He killed 3 bandits and severely injured 8 others. Shrestha told that "I am a soldier and get paid to protect citizens of this country.
