Disengagement plan, as clarified by @rajnathsingh ji, is still in progress. There is another meeting within next 48 hours to finalise the final terms. However what’s clear is that we will maintain n dominate near F3 and Chinese will be at F8 on North Pangong area. The patrolling
will resume only after certain more terms have been agreed upon. Which means F3 to F8 will be a buffer zone for now. Given the fact that Chinese had built solid structures and defences right upto F4, this is a good progress for North bank, ensuring their step back to F8. The
Southern bank status is not clear as of now. But as everyone is saying - why should we give up heights that we control ?
Firstly, not every military plan is shared with public. We may not even know what all angles are being considered while this planning. So assuming that
It’s a black and white and solder versus soldier situation is immature on our part. Secondly, the military commanders and MoD are the best people to deal with this. We should place our faith in them and understand that they are directly engaged and responsible for any eventuality
That happens there and bear the brunt directly, unlike us who can opine from safe distance. So let’s support the professionals there and not speculate too much for now.
Finally, while taking some heights during a certain stand off Isa necessity and advantage, once disengagement
takes place, maybe there is no need to keep maintaining a height in middle of nowhere with no direct threat visible. So let’s leave it for commanders on ground to decide that. Since we didn’t know why exactly certain location was taken, we also wouldn’t be told why is it being
Vacated. We placed faith in them then, we should do that now too. Lastly, my only advice if someone listens to me, and I’m sure everyone knows that too would be to not trust Chinese. They’ve stabbed us in back many times and it can easily happen again. Jai Hind.

Firstly, the Range has not been vacated yet.
Secondly, it’s a threat to Chinese only if they are also deployed there and planning to move ahead. If they’ve moved back then we are just sitting there in middle of nowhere twiddling thumbs! We aren’t an endless resources nation. The
deployment has to match its value in threat perception. There’s a reason we don’t place soldiers on every inch. Limited resources have to be employed effectively. The Mutual disengagement means that the overall threat perception from both sides is reduced in South #Pangong and
overall #Ladakh region.
Making Chinese step back from F4-5 to F8 and assurances of dismantling infra, plus ushering in a stable environment in South Pangong should be considered a major diplomatic win. Every critic was saying this will become the new normal now. It did not,

The whole plot seems to have written a ‘Lame PR exercise’ all over it planned by Congress, and the critical meeting with PR agency could’ve happened in RaGa’s quick Europe trip, seeing the timing. Aim is to generate anti Indian gov feeling across the world. #Farmer’s protest
protest issue is now being taken across the world to hit the popularity of PM Modi and present government. The PR agency handling this must’ve been paid to only focus on biggest Handles on social media, irrespective of what they do. Porn stars, IG influencers, climate activist,
musician, singer ...doesn’t matter. If you have followers, just go ahead and tweet. The language itself is a direct giveaway. Various tweets from these celebs are using words like ‘ Bhakts, Media censor, paid actors’ etc etc which doesn’t happen unless you’re deeply engaged and

If citizens are the viewers of a movie called @PMOIndia in cinema hall called Gov, these are various types of critics on Twitter :
1. Genuine fans : They are fully committed and would criticise only when they feel the movie could be better. “ Great movie, but too many songs”.
2. Neutral lot : They view the government as just another government meant to serve the nation and people and save their criticism only on issues didn’t serve them well. “ It’s okay movie but I didn’t like the Hero at all. Mood kharab kar diya”.
3. Haters : They’ve been forced to watch the movie because it’s the only cinema hall and only movie and they will keep cribbing throughout the movie, irrespective of what’s good and bad. “ what is this stupid music ..what is this acting..why this scene..why that actor”.

There’s a reason India has so far kept itself at arm’s length on chaos in Afghanistan and should continue to do so. Especially now, India definitely shouldn’t meddle in US- Pak-Afghanistan boiling kettle. For one, we can clearly see what happened to Pak, another next door
neighbour to Afghanistan once the violence started to spill over across the border. India also is pretty close to ground Zero, and Pakistan would be more than happy to divert Taliban’s/other factions’ action and attention to India, should we jump in. Secondly, we have a very
healthy relationship with Afghan government. Why would we create an opportunity of losing that bonhomie by aggressive stance? Our non participation is our support to them and it’s been appreciated so far. And finally, Biden will favour Pak a lot and expect it to take on the

A very happy birthday to National Defence Academy #NDA , that made men out of all us boys and taught us some valuable lessons like:

1. Being hungry is state of mind. If you missed your meal and end up mentioning it, you’ll be made to do more exercise to forget about it.
2. Everything is mental. Only academics , academics are physical. If you don’t remember what is the answer to a question in exam, just shout your squadron name, it’ll come galloping to your mind. Like shouting “Limaaaaa” in my case ensured I passed all my exams. Such battle cries
in otherwise Peaceful and quaint exam halls are not considered weird.

3. Sports like hockey, football, basketball etc have a component called ‘ball’ in them just to distract you from main aim of the game. Bring the other players down !!! Focus on that, always!

Just last Saturday I proved to my friend that there is no proof of this lady being in @Harvard and her profile shows that she is an Associate professor. Firstly, only would join as Assistant Prof, and after few years the panel would review your promotion to Associate Prof. The
process is mentioned on Harvard website if you go looking. All my screenshots ate from last Saturday as I was sending them to my friend to prove my point. Not only she’s not traceable on main Harvard website she was also not available on Faculty of Arts and Sciences, where she..
Claims to have been teaching. But there is no course called ‘Journalism’ at School of Arts and Science ! It’s under Department of History where she has no mention anywhere.

I was surprised as my friend but still we thought maybe it’s our mistake and we can’t search properly,coz
