syed ali shah piglani Smells conspiracy behind wooing Israeli tourists

Syed Ali Shah piglani :: Monday said that the ‘visit of Director Tourism Kashmir to Israel’ is part of a conspiracy to bring in Israeli intelligence agency Mossad to Kashmir.
“Through it, they want to bring Mossad agents here to fulfill their plans,” he said.
The remarks of Geelani come in the backdrop of Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Department’s plan to send a delegation to Israeli capital Tel Aviv for wooing tourists to Kashmir.

We are keen that maximum number of tourists from Israel should visit Kashmir. That is why we are visiting the country and we would do a road show in Tel Aviv....

India and Israel have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to boost their bilateral ties in the tourism sector, with Israel opening a tourism office in Mumbai and increasing the number of El Al flights to India.
The pact was signed between Indian and Israeli tourism ministers Sunday, Xinhua reported.
The agreement aims to increase tourism to and from Israel, India by half in the next three years, it was announced here during a press conference of Israeli Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov and his Indian counterpart Minister Subodh Kant Sahai.
With over 40,000 Indian visitors coming to Israel per year, and equal number of Israeli citizens travelling to India, both the ministers said that they saw an opportunity to expand the tourism market between the two countries.
To double the number, Israel will open a new tourism office in Mumbai and will construct 200,000 new hotel rooms as well as increase the number of El Al flights, the Israeli air carrier, from three times a week to one per day.
"We are also looking into opening new El Al destinations, such as Kolkata and New Delhi, and to convince other air carriers to open more routes between our countries," Misezhnikov said

Grenadier Yogender Singh Yadav

Param Vir Chakra

Grenadier Yogender Singh Yadav was part of the Ghatak Platoon that captured three Bunkers on Tiger Hill Top on the night of 03-04 July 1999. The approach was a vertical cliff face, snowbound at 16,500 feet. Grenadier Yogender Singh Yadav, volunteering to lead the assault, was climbing the cliff face and fixing the ropes for further assault on the feature. On reaching half way up, an enemy bunker opened up machine gun and rocket fire. His Platoon Commander and two others fell to the heavy volume of automatic fire. Realising the enormity of the situation, he continued to scale the sheer cliff face alone through a volley of fire. Inspite of having been hit by three bullets in his groin and shoulder, displaying superhuman strength and resolve, he climbed the remaining 60 feet, all by himself and reached the top. With rare grit and courage, he crawled up to the bunker critically injured and lobbed a grenade killing four Pakistani soldiers and neutralising enemy fire.
This act was directly instrumental in facilitating the rest of the Platoon in climbing up the cliff face. Grievously injured, but with reckless disregard to personal safety, Grenadier Yogender Singh Yadav now charged on to the second bunker and neutralised it with two of his colleagues in an extremely fierce hand to hand combat, killing three Pakistani soldiers.

This extraordinarily gallant act motivated the rest of the Platoon which quickly traversed the treacherous terrain and braving hostile fire, charged onto the enemy to capture Tiger Hill Top, a vital objective. Throughout this operation, from scaling the sheer vertical cliff face by rope for destruction of two Pakistani bunkers in succession, Grenadier Yogender Singh Yadav displayed indomitable spirit, determination and action beyond the call of the duty.

For displaying the most conspicuous courage and spirit of self-sacrifice, Grenadier Yogender Yadav has been awarded Param Vir Chakra.

freedom my friend, isn't free

History has taught us over and over again that freedom is not free. When push comes to shove, the ultimate protectors of freedom and liberty are the brave men and women in our armed forces. Throughout our history, they've answered the call in bravery and sacrifice.

let us not let their sacrifice go in vain..
To those who stood for the call of duty..
Accept our gratitude.

Jai Hind!!

do you know him ?? may be some but most of you dont ??


BRAVE NSG officer who lost his vision in one eye after suffering splinter injuries during the Mumbai terror attacks...

Captain Amitendra Kumar Singh was one of the first National Security Guard commandos who took on the terrorists in Mumbai.

This was a soldiers sacrifice.

He wouldn't sleep nor eat,
Just to make sure nothing comes above his feet,
He swore to mom he would be home.
But that was not something he kept whole.

He fights with arms in suite,
He fights to know this is his due.
The truth is he fights to plead his crew.

He learns the way of life,
To keep to hold on tight.
Some days are not glare
But no one really cared

His years to pay are set,
With a signature he wrote once then.
Defending what hes got
He knows his time has jot.

His country feels his grief,
But no one like his family pleads.
To come to hold and see,
This Soldier who fell on both knees.

A mother left behind,
To tear to cry,
To know his son was a hero
Who will remain in mind.

A man who gave his all
While hunger days would fall.
A man who wore his suite
For everyone who knew.

For I can tell the truth
This pain no one will lose,
This was no ordinary fight,
This was a soldiers sacrifice.

Army closer to getting attack helicopters, as India eyes China threat

Army closer to getting attack helicopters, as India eyes China threat

Defence Minister A K Antony today directed that the Indian Army deploy extra man power in the North East as fast as possible. He asked the Army to prepare to induct more attack helicopters into the force. The Defence Minister was reviewing the modernisation of the Indian Army.

Modernisation of the Indian Army has been in sharp focus since the letter of the former chief, General V K Singh, to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was leaked to the media. General Singh's letter had pointed to severe deficiencies in equipment and systems.

Sources said that Mr Antony, reviewing the Army's modernisation programme, also asked the Army to step-up on the infrastructure development in the North East. Besides this, the Minister also reviewed the process of acquisition of artillery guns and asked the Army to reform its acquisition process.

Mr Antony also reviewed new measures taken to increase and improve ammunition storage systems in the North East. Besides this, he also asked the Army to prioritise and focus on critical areas to plug existing gaps. The meeting was attended by senior officials of the Ministry of Defence including the Defence Secretary Sashikant Sharma and Secretary Defence Production Shekhar Agarwal.

Rare Pic of Soldiers praying before the final assault on Tiger Hill

Rare Pic of Soldiers praying before the final assault on Tiger Hill

The Winning Spirits Seeking divine help:

By recapturing Tiger Hill the soldiers won more than the case of Scotch promised by Gen. Malik

In shell-battered Dras, it was time for celebration on July 4. On that Sunday morning the Indian soldiers had recaptured Tiger Hill after a fierce battle with the intruders. In operation bunkers the officers shook hands, hugged one another and rang up the Corps Command in Srinagar and Army Headquarters in New Delhi to convey the good news.

The smiles turned into guffaws 24 hours later, when they were told that the Pakistani Television had denied the very existence of Tiger Hill. At this rate, said an officer, Pakistan would say that there was no Kargil, Dras, Batalik and Turtuk once the infiltrators were routed. "It is like saying that after the 1971 war East Pakistan never existed," quipped another.

The capture of the highest peak in the sector has been crucial to the army's plans ever since Tololing was snatched in June. Tiger Hill has been the subject of discussion in the mess of the 56 Brigade, headquartered at Dras. When Tololing was captured, army chief General V.P. Malik presented a bottle of Scotch to Brigadier Amar Aul, commanding officer of the brigade, and promised a case of Scotch for the brigade when they captured Tiger Hill.

The sheer height of the Hill provided the best observation point for the infiltrators; from there they could scan the 56 Brigade headquarters and the Srinagar-Leh National Highway, and relay the information to Pakistani soldiers across the border.

Further, Tiger Hill leads on to Mushko Valley where the infiltrators have occupied not only the peaks but also the lower reaches and parts of the valley itself. Since Mushko is closer to the Line of Control, Pakistan has been keeping the infiltration points well supplied. Control of Tiger Hill will give India the vantage observation point to attack Pakistani positions in Mushko and surrounding peaks.

Key conquest: The Tiger Hill as seen from Dras
As the cover fire bottled the infiltrators up in their bunkers, the 18 Grenadiers, the second battalion of Naga Regiment and the eighth battalion of Sikh Regiment completed the work of setting up base camps half way up the mountain. The assault team had 200 men from the three elite units, backed up by their colleagues who looked after signals, rearguard, supplies and ammunition thread. Each raider had 10 men behind him.

Such was the determination of the advance party that most of the Grenadiers abandoned their rations to carry extra fire power. Some of them did not eat for the full 36 hours of the operation. Their first meal was the dates left behind by the intruders!

While the Alpha, Charlie and Ghatak companies of the 18 Grenadiers attacked the rear, the Nagas were on the left flank, and the Sikhs on the right. The assault began at 5.15 p.m. on July 3 with Bofors guns booming. By 7 p.m. three rocket launchers joined the action. Thirty minutes later, shells from across the LOC pounded the road to the foothills of Tiger Hill and the soldiers rushed to safety. They were back to their positions soon with one more rocket launcher.

Meanwhile, the Grenadiers had moved up towards their target. There was little resistance on the way, as the sky show confined the infiltrators to the safety of their bunks. By 4 a.m. the soldiers confronted the infiltrators at the hill top; 10 intruders were killed while 2 escaped. Five soldiers also lost their lives in the fight.

By 6.50 a.m. on July 4 three shell bursts announced that Tiger Hill top had been captured. Within 24 hours Gen. V.P. Malik had given instant battlefield honour to the Grenadiers, making them the second regiment after Rajputana Rifles to get this honour in the Kargil battle.

The achievement has not made the soldiers complacent. At the time of reporting they were gearing up for the battles ahead. And to down the very special Scotch from the chief!
