The ideal flight time for me is 4-5 hours and looking on the world map, there are a host of warm, luxurious and relaxing destinations within that flying time. Shame, none of the travel companies like Best at Travel, Kuoni, Virgin Holidays, Letsgo2 or Holiday Hypermarket ever consider that. You end up searching these sites for hours with a highly confused state of mind. Having been through this, I decided to post a little research for those facing the same dilemma as me.
The Eastern Command was in existence, but the IAF never carried out any exercises for hill attacks and operations. All the exercises were carried out for operations in the plains. This is hard to stomach now and the role of successive Air Chiefs from Air Marshal S Mukherjee down wards needs evaluation. The IAF was not conditioned for any form of operation in the hills and the heights of the Himalayas. However the IAF was combat ready for operations in the plains. Thus when the PLA moved in a logical corollary would have been to use the IAF as a ground support to blunt the Chinese offensive. This however did not happen and the Army fought it’s battle without Air Support. Thus the cardinal principle of Douhet was thrown to the winds.
Still not sure where to go? If you don’t mind where you go, and you’re more focused on the kind of holiday, you may end up saving substantial sums of money. My best bet while booking a holiday is calling one of my favourite agencies – Best at Travel or Directline Holidays and just chatting to an advisor regarding what’s cheap this season. I’ve always found Best at Travel and Directline saving me money.
Rani LaksmiBai became a national hero and her name was written in the golden book for her bravery. This is also a fact that when Indian Army Result created its first female unit, they named that unit on the name of Laksmi Bai.
The game of snakes & ladders was created by the 13th century poet saint Gyandev. It was originally called ‘Mokshapat.’ The ladders in the game represented virtues and the snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. Later through time, the game underwent several modifications but the meaning is the same i.e good deeds take us to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births.
One night while I was sleeping, a supreme power washed my whole body with colours. I also listened, tere sare dukh kate gaia. From that day I had no any pain in any part of my body. Tired ness also reduced (this is the incidence of January 2009). Now I am 100% all right.
But then the question remains why had so many soldiers have to die in this campaign of 53 days. There are no answers except that war is war and no quarter given and none expected. It is the call to arms and duty.
