“Wahe Guruji da khalsa, Wahe Guruji di fateh!”, the war began against an enemy considerably larger in number and infamous for brutality. But the Sikh army was here to taste victory, the war cry from their leader having infused confidence in them. They fought with all their might, and they fought to win. To put an end the growing Maratha power, Ahmad Shah Abdali – the Afghan king along with his allies - the Rohilla Afghans of the Doab, and Shuja-ud-Daula of Awadh - had descended on the Maratha army with all his might in the 3rd battle of Panipat. The Marathas fought bravely but were no match to the combined mighty armies of Abdali and its allies. Abdali had kidnapped 2,200 Hindu women as part of his war spoils and was carrying them to Afghanistan, to be sold there for...

  Veer Bhoomi Bharat has  always been fertile in raising bravehearts, who have for eons given the ultimate sacrifice in defence of the motherland In the Modern Age & Time, the Indian Armed Forces are truly the inheritors of this glorious lineage of brave warriors. Right from the first dawn of Independence they have assumed this colossal responsibility of providing the first line of defence for a Nation with a vast length and breadth such as ours. Faced with a perennial shortage of human resource, as well as a million inadequacies in terms of quantity & quality of material/equipment notwithstanding, our servicemen untiringly tread on the path of sacrifice & duty with unflinching devotion. We as ordinary civilians might not do much to ease their enormous burden, but at the very least we can recount the tales of devotion, sacrifice...

Our motherland is called "Veer Bhoomi” as so many valiant heroes fought for her and laid down their lives in great honour, while fighting the foreign invaders. Pandiya naadu in south Tamilnadu stretching from Madurai to Tirunelveli is quite famous in this regard especially for the Polygar wars and is indeed a “Veeram vilaindha nilam” (a land where courage is cultivated). Veerapandiya Kattabomma Karuthayya Nayakkar, the 47th ruler from the Kattabomman clan near Tuticorin, was one of the Polygars (Palayakkarars) - the subordinates of the erstwhile Naicker rulers of Madurai who appointed them as regional chieftains of their different divisions (Palayams) to administer, collect taxes, and also maintain a battalion of troops. It is said that during a hunting trip into the forests of Salikulam, one of the Kattabommans saw a hare chasing a hound, so he built a fort there...

The LAN messenger icon blinked in the system tray. I clicked it immediately. A message popped up: “Bhai…Friendly reminder – You have to write a “Testi” for me. Thanks, Abhijeet” Oh yeah I remember. Abhijeet had written a “testi” for me three days back and I was supposed to repay the debt. I sat down to dedicate a paragraph to him. I completed it in less than 20 minutes, did a grammar check, right clicked different words and substituted them with their weightier synonyms (Thanks to MS-Word). Finally the testimonial was ready. I added it to his Orkut profile. He approved it in no time. Another flash in the system tray. I clicked again, a message popped up: “Bhai thank you so much. Teri Angrezi badi mast hai”. I smiled. The demand for “Testis (testimonials)” in impeccable English were always in...

1965! A year of unprecedented turmoil in Indo-Pak history. In April that year, a minor border dispute in the Rann of Kutch area had resulted in limited scale conflicts between the armies of India & Pakistan. Due to superior armaments & training that it received from the US, the Pakistan Army dominated the skirmishes in the Rann area and made some territorial gains. India on the other hand was recovering from a disastrous war with China and still licking her wounds. Though the modernization of its military was underway, it was still to gather steam. India was at its most vulnerable position in1965. This emboldened the Pakistanis and set in motion a chain of events that would lead to the Second Kashmir War of 1965. Meanwhile, much before any of these events,in 1933, a Tailor named Mohammad Usman and his...
