Meet this unknown soul Taksang Dorjey whom I discovered meditating in a natural cave up in high mountains along India’s frontiers with occupied #Tibet
in Eastern #ladakh
He is 65 yrs old as claimed by him and lives a solitary life in this mountain cave 15000 feet above sea level with temperatures going down upto -38deg C. He is sustained by bare essentials supplied to him by local inhabitants living on the foothills
His daily routine includes sleeping at 10:30 pm and waking up at 02:30 am to pray thereafter. His cave temple contains undated but definitely precious manuscripts he uses for daily prayers. Also note the undated inscriptions on the stones outside (zoom and see)

#SupremeCourt dismisses an SLP preferred by the Union Territory of Chandigarh, where it was alleged that a person who served the #Indianarmy and was later appointed as a Constable, had concealed his involvement in a criminal case under Sections 148, 149, 323, 325, 506 IPC.
Court: Look at the background of the person, who has served the Indian Army for 12 years, and is a Gallantry awardee.

Was further of the opinion that he must have been acquitted during his service (which the Counsel confirmed)
…as Army Act is very strict in the conduct and had they found it to be anything contrary, a suitable action would have been taken by the concerned authority.

There is a fundamental mistake made by the makers of #LalSinghChaddha
The original film #ForrestGump is on background of the anti war protests of Vietnam where USA was an aggressor.
So, #ForrestGump is basically a film where the US army is shown as being in the wrong.
That’s because #Vietnam history is known the world over.
BUT, in contrast, #LalSinghChaddha is based in India, in India, the #IndianArmy is always seen as a HERO.. not an aggressor!
+That fundamental mistake is (possibly) present in the script of #LalSinghChaddha
Now question arises “Who sees the Indian army in a different manner in India”
Answer: Communists and the Left..
That I think will be the major sinking issue for the film..

A thread on the new recruitment scheme, #Agniveer, which is about to be adopted by the #IndianArmy.

Long detailed #Thread.
Before reading this thread, I request you to give a conscious read to this excellent piece by @realkaypius…
The entire ideology of the #IndianArmy (#indianairforce and #IndianNavy) is based on three words, 'Naam-Namak-Nishaan'.
'Naam' of the regiment;
'Namak' of the country; &
'Nishaan' of Bharat.
This invokes the sense of esprit de corps, loyalty and cohesion between the troops.

Divers are amongst the most elite of all sailors and soldiers. A tough selection process and tougher day to day environment? Which are the different diving units in India?

#IndianNavy #IndianArmy #IndianCoastGuard

[01] Unsurprisingly the Indian Navy has the largest, most experienced and well equipped diving cadre in the country. Navy divers are also the talent pool for MARCOS special forces.

Navy divers, and in fact divers across all services are graduates of the elite Diving School at Kochi.
