Digvijay - one final comment. its all very well of you to rant on about the glorious resistance of your clan against invaders (muslims). However, your 'clan' is not the only one and by far not the most successful at that endeavour. My money is on the Assamese, Manipuris and Oriyas as having kept th...

Digvijay, You continue to embarrass yourself on the forum. No. You and others by supporting the brass are embarassing yourselves. If after many mutilations this brass of Indian army could not even get a war crimes tibunal setup to corner pakis what good are you. We know this brass would not venture...

To say it is Saurav's father's perception is just a travesty. To say that IA top brass deliberately suppressed the truth about Kalia's capture, without a shred of proof is even more of a travesty. Anoop, You cannot selectively believe Major Haunted Eyes in one narrative and not the next. Page 97: -...

What are you talking about? It has nothing to do with religion or secular or anti-secular or the like. The man has a bee up his bonnet about his clan, and has pretty much made it clear that as far as he is concerned, only his clan (and some other suitably adorned martial races) opposed the islamist...

Digvijay the Hindu percentage thingy is beyond the scope of this forum - Please lets not go into this "if you do not agree with me you are a marxist jhollawallah theory". There are no absolutes ( guess which philosophy allows for this). I have always admired the bravery of our frontier st...

All, To say it is Saurav's father's perception is just a travesty. How can one be so illogical? We have two cases in front of us: Air Force and Army. Air Force handled it one way and suceeded. Army did'nt and failed. Why is it so hard for people to acknowledge that army's handling was incorrect? Unl...

"My Clan" Here we go again about the great warrior castes. Hmm - yes your clan sacrificed a lot but like you they went and fought to the death - letting the invaders win. On the other hand someone like Shivaji was smarter, as he retreated when required and kept harrying and hounding. Some...

Are you denying that Saurav Kalia was captured and tortured? No. Are you denying that our brass DID NOTHING to get him back? Yes. If you are claiming that they did nothing, the burden of proof rests with you. And remind us again why should we respect this brass ? For one, they didn't magically beco...

After we recovered Kalia and other jawans why was the issue of geneva convention violation not highlighted? Not highlighted?

Loose talk in Messes is not authentic as loose statement on a forum without proof. Srinjoy's quote on a diary being kept in which tiwari recorded the torture of his fellow Indians is authentic. What could the brass do to get anyone back when there is a war on? To begin with simple stuff really. Hig...

If you pepper your post with backhanded insults, you will end up getting more than that in return.

Since you seem to know Khanna, Malik etc why was Saurav Kalia left to be tortured by Pakis? Nobody higher up knew what was happening to Kalia or that the patrol had gone missing. Please be aware of LRP procedure, long patrols take their time to return and there is an established chain of procedure....

Thin air affects the trajectory of all projectiles and it improves the efficiency because of the reduction of drag, and the projectile hits higher than it would at sea level. At an elevation of 10,000 feet (3,050 m), a round fired at a target at a distance of 1,000 meters will impact almost 70 inch...
