1. This day in 1999, a young Captain by the name of Manoj Pandey was going gung ho, clearing Pakis in Khalubar.
Little would he have have known that he had just about 42 days more in this world, before he attained martyrdom, and with it, immortal fame ..
He led the most difficult tasks assigned to 1/11 Gorkha Rifles in the war, with full confidence in his fellow Gorkhas to deliver.

Folks, yesterday marked the 3th anniversary of the day when the Sikhs, led by Banda Singh Bahadur entered the city of #Sirhind.
Here's a short thread on the events leading up to this significant victory for the Khalsa Panth. #Sirhind was the unfortunate witness to the martyrdom of the two younger Sahebzadas of Guru Gobind Singh at the hands of its Governor Wazir Khan, who'd vowed to finish the Sikhs after the battle of Anandpur Saheb in 1704.

I have a story to share .. a really sad story 😭
This Friday, I wasn't feeling too well and by late morning, had decided that I'll tell my boss and take the rest of the day off.
However, my Boss had gone to the office of his Boss' Boss.
So I had no choice but to wait. In any case, it was already time for my mid-morning snacks.
Two samosas later, he finally came back to office.
But something seemed a bit .. well .. off.
He was smiling a maniacal smile!

Folks, sharing some thoughts on the recent trip of a not so distant cousin of Shri Brahmos Ji to the Land of the Pure.
Let's see how this one goes ..
But first let me just write the phrase "Brown Pants", so that now Shri Viveek Agrawal Ji can also read this thread.
Ok, here goes ..
Folks, sharing some thoughts on the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis. Thoughts have been floating about in my head ever since this thing flared up yet again, some weeks ago and now with the military part of it a week old, I feel emboldened enough to tweet.
But one thing I wish to make absolutely clear right at the onset, I am NOT going to be talking much about the military operations as such. There already are enough handles doing a great job on that, for both sides!
Thoughts are still disjointed. Let's see how it goes..

Dear Shri @Twi77zler Ji from Erstwhile West Pakistan, I know I and my own Nation are far from perfect. But to hear about treatment of minorities from a Bhikharistani, of all peoples in this world, still made me do an actual Facepalm.
Let me enlighten you why.
But dear Shri @Twi77zler Ji, before moving ahead, let me just inform you that I'm putting your handle on mute because I am really not interested in whatever crap you have to spew.
Talking about crap, I'll just leave this thread here to keep u 'entertained'
Well Played, @HyundaiIndia!
I'm sure the higher ups of @Hyundai_Global must be mighty impressed at your prowess in going into hiding!
Atleast one thing I know for sure as far as my next car goes - It will NOT be a Hyundai!
Looks like this poorly photoshopped photo of Shri @iamsrk ji in front of some @HyundaiIndia product is going to be in circulation for much much longer than it would have been under normal circumstances, thanks to the brand that he endorses, endorsing Pakistan in return!

Army of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan doing a dance that would make the patrons of Heera Mandi proud!
Some mighty frustrated folks, these, I must say!
This reply to the tweet above reminded me of something that I had seen some time ago. Let me share it with you all!
1/5 Today is the 261st anniversary of the Third Battle of Panipat.
Ahmed Shah Durrani would defeat the Marathas in a series of battles over next few days 2/5 However, own losses would force Durrani to sue for peace soon thereafter.

Welcome to Social Media!
Where a non-existent controversy / outrage is just one photoshop / filter away!!
Iss hafte ke liye yehi sahi. Weekend par pata nahi kaun sa naya controversy aa jayega!
Btw, Photoshop is the forte of the Brown Panted Ones. #JustSaying
Don't believe me?
Well try and find the torso of the Brown Panted One standing next to the lady receiving her medal 🤣

Dear @defence_pk Ji, thanks for your QT.
I concede on the point of the variant of the IL-78 of PAF.
But I do admire you for the 'What You Smoke' wala point. It is pretty .. err .. 'neat', coming from someone like you!
Allow me to take some time to elaborate upon this point 🙏
I understand that your handle is affiliated with the Pakistan Defence website, or defence.pk, as mentioned in your twitter bio as well. Of course, I would know, since that has been my 'go to' place whenever I find myself in need of some quality entertainment!
Hav Rajendra Singh, 11 GarhRif.

Ah, well, isn't this the favourite 'comeback' of Beggaristanis, regardless of what begins a 'discussion' with these folks?
Though this sample is yet another Beggaristani who has made it to my muted accounts' list, I thought I'd indulge this one just a tad bit more.
The buggers across the border seem to be a bit too overtly infatuated with the state of access to toilets in India. To be fair, there did use to be some merit in this line of thought till about five years ago, no doubt.
Till the previous GOI built 100million+ toilets, that is.

Today marks 7 years since I saw this in the paper while having my morning coffee & tweeted it.
Thus began of one of my most precious threads, even though I managed to break the continuity a few times.
However, I'm breaking & restarting the thread again today. #ObituaryOfTheDay
The thread continuing unbroken becomes a bit too large for Twitter to handle, as has handled before when the longest unbroken phase was approx 2.5 years.
Thanks to The Indian Express & their free of cost 'Salute the Soldier', irrespective of space ..

On one of my WA groups, folks have done some renaming of their own:
Beijing : भुजंग नगर
Lhasa : लक्ष्मणगढ़
Tibet : तिवतियानगर
Here's wishing Happy #WalongDay to the heroes of 6 KUMAON.
They went to their deaths heroically & steadfastly, without any fuss this day in 1962.
Just so that a General could please a PM on his birthday.
This day in 1962 - The only attack of the war by Indian army was launched - As a birthday gift from a general to a PM.
A heavy price was paid by the Kumaonis of 6 Kumaon that night. #WalongDay

This attack in Manipur, ever since the news broke, has been playing on my mind. I'm sure I won't be the only one who has been taken aback by what transpired earlier today.
I think the reason is not that soldiers were killed in this attack, but instead that the wife and child of the Commanding Officer too were killed.
Now this is not to say that the loss of the five soldiers is any less than that of the lady and the kid. Far from it, in fact.
PS: Despite what some people might want u to believe, this is NOT a scene from the Harvard University. Instead, it is a hypothetical recreation of how things MIGHT have been, had Harvard University had a Journalism Dept! Sachchi! 🤣
Of course the above lecture by the now former #NDTV Mohtarma talks about five qualities, but actually lists out SIX on the board!

Lt Col Inderjit Singh (Retd), The Grenadiers Regiment.

So this tweet was brought to my notice some days ago.
I was glad to note that my handle too figures in the list of those that have been recently attacked by the Chinese cyber army and propaganda operatives!
