Ok folks, sharing some thoughts on the latest fart that Shri Trudeau Ji let out in the Canadian Parliament not very long ago.
Thoughts are still a bit jumbled, let's see how it goes .. So, where did this begin, one must ask.
Well, the seeds of Canadian support to Khalistan were sowed much before Justin Ji was out of his diapers .. when his own father was the Canadian Prime Minister who not only saw the killing of 300+ Canadian citizens by Canada based ..

Today is the 38th anniversary of the bombing of Air India 'Kanishka' by Canada based terrorists.
Replugging some thoughts on the same.
Canada, this one will haunt you till time's end. Letting out some thoughts and some facts when it came to Western nations not merely looking away at terrorism aimed at India in the 70s, 80s and the 90s, but in cases, actually encouraging it.
This state sponsored terror from West cost us dearly then, and costs us dearly even now

Two Volumes spanning 1574 pages.
Started reading on 26 May after taking four days to gather the courage to actually start!
Finished last night.
Spent the better part of three weeks ignoring every task because I just couldn't let go of this masterpiece.
Sharing some thoughts .. First and foremost .. JUST ORDER A SET FOR YOURSELF!
The narration is brilliant, broken down into small chapters so as not to make reading it a daunting task.
On the other hand, this makes the books difficult to put down, given the greed of reading 'just one chapter more'! twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

A man of unshakeable principles, Thimayya offered his resignation on atleast three occasions before 1947.
On two occasions, he was counselled by his British seniors who were gracious enough to concede his concerns were genuine, as also guiding him that these didn't merit .. 2
.. throwing away a promising career.
Then there was one occasion when he had a chance to meet Motilal Nehru sometime in the 30s in the peak of nationalist fervour.
Once again an offer to resign his commission in favour of joining the nationalist movement was made by Thimayya.

This day in 1999, a young Captain by the name of Manoj Pandey was going gung ho, clearing Paakis in Khalubar.
Little would he have have known that he had just about 43 days more in this world, before he attained martyrdom, and with it, immortal fame .. Image 2
He led the most difficult tasks assigned to 1/11 Gorkha Rifles in the war, with full confidence in his fellow Gorkhas to deliver. Image

So this report landed up on my TL some days back.
Finally found some time this evening, so replugging some thoughts I shared some years ago on the PLA peacekeepers in South Sudan.
Here goes! #PLA_Myths
So I came across this 2015 news report, some days ago. A piece that I found V.E.R.Y interesting.
The headline is catchy enough – ‘UN peacekeepers refused to help as aid workers were raped in South Sudan’.

Yesterday marked the 313th anniversary of the day Sikhs, led by Banda Bahadur entered the city of #Sirhind Image 2
#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. Image

Ah well, isn't this the favourite 'comeback' of Bhikharistanis, regardless of what begins a 'discussion' with these folks?
Though this sample is yet another Bhikharistani that made it to my muted accounts' list, I'll just replug an old thread on the topic! 2
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.

From 'Kashmir Banay Ga Bhikharistan' to 'I don't want to live in Bhikharistan Anymore'!
No sympathies for these yahoos across the border!
In fact, great fun watching them spiral down the drain, I'd say!!
🤣 ImageImageImageImage 1/2
So the Bhikharistani came to my TL, thinking that the above tweet is a humorous one!

So this news landed up on my TL, thanks to Shri @GhotalePatil Ji.
Well, this calls for a replugging of a 'not so old' thread in which folks on one of my WA groups did some renaming of their own!
Here goes!

Beijing: भुजंग नगर
Lhasa: लक्ष्मणगढ़
Tibet: तिवतियानगर

So I came across this tweet from @gauravcsawant some days ago.
In light of this, replugging a short thread that I wrote on the issue some years ago.
Here goes .. With the Pakistani State apparatus actively fomenting / sponsoring terror inside India, each and every Pakistani citizen paying tax to his Govt in whichever form - direct or indirect - is actually enabling it kill Indian soldiers and civilians.

Folks, sharing some thoughts on the Russia-Ukraine War that has just crossed the one year mark.
Strictly my opinions, so feel free to disagree.
Let me begin with this horrific video montage of relentless bombardment of a major city, housing millions of non-combatants. ^^
Btw, the above visuals are from the 2003 invasion of Iraq by the great US of A and even Greater Britain, plus a host of other 'willing' partners. Interestingly, next week will mark two decades of that invasion on an utterly false premise, for which the culprits didn't face ..

Here's a short thread on that. 2
A beautiful piece on the Royal Indian Navy mutiny which commenced this day in 1946 - the final straw that broke the Empire's back.
Worth a read.
A MUST READ piece, in fact!

Ok folks, sharing some thoughts on the current state of Pakistan.
Strictly my opinions. Feel free to disagree!

Been a while since I did a thread, lets see how this one goes .. First and foremost, I would like to start with an undisputable fact:

This is the longest that the Pakistan Army has NOT directly ruled Pakistan.

Yup, you may read the above statement again and take some time to do some mental mathematics if you so desire!
