  • With 32 killed and over 1,400 injured till now, the situation in Kashmir clearly reflects on the incident going out of bounds

With the killing of Hizbul’s poster boy Burhan Wani, the Kashmir Valley is caught in serious crisis. 32 killed and over 1,400 injured till now, and the situation in Kashmir clearly reflects on the incident going out of bounds.

In spite of the turmoil, the truth remains that Wani was a terrorist and met the fate he deserved.


An open letter penned by an Indian army veteran Major Gaurav Arya of anti-insurgency operations in Kashmir reflected on the boiling situation in the Valley and most appropriately justified his killing in an army operation that took place in South Kashmir’s Kokernag area.

He pointed out that even if Wani had managed to flee this time he would have been killed in some other operation with “just a different date on the calendar, that’s all.”

Addressing him as “Dear Departed” Major Arya started by talking about the violent protest in Kashmir and said, “I grieve with your family and with the families of all those who lost their lives.”

Major Arya cleared that Wani made wrong choices by opting to become the face of terrorism on the “seductive world of social media”. He added that by posting pictures of him and his “brothers” with assault rifles and radio sets, Wani called for his death and warned that you should “NEVER do that in an operational area.”

Giving out signals to anyone who attempts to breach the security of the country, Major Arya iterated that Wani was a “dead man” as soon he went ahead to pursue his “social media blitzkrieg.”

Branding the members of Hurriyat Conference as “leech,” he pointed to their duplicity.

“Name one relative of Syed Ali Geelani, the head of the Hurriyat Conference, who is fighting the so-called Indian “occupation”? His son Nayeem Geelani is a doctor in Rawalpindi and lives under the patronage of the Pakistani ISI. Zahoor, his second son, lives in South Delhi. Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s sister Rabia is a doctor in the US. Mariyam Andrabi, sister of the head of the radical Dukhtran-e-Millat, Asiya Andrabi, along with her family lives in Malaysia. Every Kashmiri separatist leader’s daughter or son is rich and safe, outside Kashmir. Jihad is for other people’s sons,” Major Arya said.

He also noted that Kashmir is an “artificially manufactured conflict” by Pakistan as it simply wants to keep “Indian forces bogged down in the valley.”

He concluded by saying, “You were a terrorist. You chose to wage war against India. Like for all other such perpetrators in the past, it didn’t go too well for you. When you choose to fight against the Indian Army, know this; THEY WILL KILL YOU.”

Recently, Tom and Jerry was made into a live action film

Every child who grew up in the 90s and the early 00s has certainly grown up around Tom and Jerry, the adorable, infamous cat-chases-mouse cartoon. The idea of naughtiness and playing mischief had the standards that this particular series set for children and defined how much wreckage was funny enough.

The show's creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera initially named their characters Jasper and Jinx. They did not plan for the fame that Tom and Jerry brought them when they released a movie by the name of "Puss Gets the Boot". This movie featured a certain cat and mouse who were a notorious pair, named Jasper and Jinx. When the movie became a hit, the names of the characters were changed and the show shot to fame.

Indians Rarely Make Time For Arts And Culture, Says Survey

One of India's leading private museums, the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) Bengaluru, has released new primary research conducted by the ReReeti Foundation, on audience behaviour in India's cultural sector. While more than half of the respondents thought the arts and culture are essential, they rarely manage to make time for it. The majority (60.6 per cent), mostly young people under 30, felt Indian museums could present more engaging content, and most perceived culture as anthropological/ sociological. Of the diverse categories included, music emerged as the most popular cultural activity.

The report is based on a survey of 500 people, which included school and college students, professionals across sectors, homemakers and senior citizens. The first initiative of its kind in the cultural space, the report shares valuable insights into the behaviour and expectations of Indian audiences engaging with a broad range of cultural activities. As part of MAP's mission to foster meaningful connections between communities and the cultural sector globally, which includes its innovative digital programme Museums Without Borders, the report shares a wealth of insights that can help museums across the country understand their audiences better. As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.
