Yes Balakot is done and dusted.But the adversaries instead at a different venue are arraigned today. People die as usual in K and bus loads in an AN-32 https://kaypius.com/2019/06/15/an32-crash-3rd-jun-2019-tombstone-imperatives go missing only to be found done to dust after almost a week.
Business is pretty much back to the usual.The gladiator slaves shall be always there at the Collosseum.And so shall the galleries be full always – a crazed community baying for each other’s blood.
With all of it still going on behind and in front of us comes this deep and dark analysis from a former Naval Test Pilot telling quite a related tale of our mindlessness and infantile imagination with reminders on what-to-do if we collectively not wish, to be defeated,yet again by man-made disasters.
We owe it to them who died for no fault of theirs !🌹
Behind the risk of life and limb stood the woman by his man. Running from sick quarters to banks and schools, buying groceries riding cycles or by walk, receiving and seeing off loved relatives all by themselves, while her loved man was away is a quality taken for granted and an unwritten part of the wife’s job description. Cooking late meals without notice with nothing in store for an unannounced number of gatecrashers, the free-flowing rum and groggy men being the proverbial last straw. Do not get it wrong here! These were still early days for the women to enjoy much less taste the tabooed liquor. It took a while before the docile and submissive Nari came into her own. In her Sunday best, she soldiered on with a smile. Tears there must have been and many at that but these were to be borne and shared by each husband in the dark corners of the bedroom.

Akashganga never had it so good. Enthused and awed by the sense of spectacle, for the first time in the history of the Air Force, a full load of 37 skydivers in spanking new and fancy dungarees jumped to join an assembled parade contingent on ground consisting of nine Squadrons of three flights each of about a thousand Vayuputras, in 1989. They then joined the ceremonial march past in the august presence of Mini Bawa, the Mukhya Deva Adhikari of the Central Command. Banjo was commended by the Chief of Air Staff for this unique planning and exhibition of military freefalling skills imbued with the spirit and festivity of sports skydiving. Sunil tells us more about the thrill and threats of Akashganga, in the weekly column, exclusively for Different Truths.
