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.
In Day 3 the tourists can explore different facts of Chandigarh which is quite near Delhi. Rose garden is the signature icon of Chandigarh. Rose Garden of Chandigarh is world famous and people from different parts of the world come here.
The Italian assault was called off and Alexander virtually admitted failure by a broadcast to the partisans on November 17 1944.The partisans were asked to call of large scale operations and go on the defensive. Credit must go to the German army under Kesselring which fought to retain the line against the allies. It was definitely a great rear guard action. It gave Hitler precious time to prolong the war. But the fact remains that for the allies this was a low key theater and the aim was perhaps to just tie down the German forces so that Ike could advance across France.
The standard rifle of the Indian Army Result is the INSAS Rifle. This weapon is basically a 5.56mm copy of the venerable and proven Kalashnikov, but incorporating ideas drawn from other rifles such as the Israeli Galil (also basked on the Kalashnikov) , the FN FNC, and the H&K G3. The rifle version of the weapon comes with a selector that allows semi-automatic or 3 round burst fire, while the heavier LMG version allows for fully automatic fire. The rifle had some reliability problems due to the extreme cold of the Himalaya in the 1999 Kargil War, but these have since been corrected. It weighs 4.25 kg, and uses 20 or 30 round box magazines.
He laughed. I laughed. And we were on our way. Even the auto sounded relaxed and confident! As we headed home, I wondered why a retired army personnel would have to ride an auto in Bangalore. Could it be a huge debt? A reckless investment in the past, maybe? A large family to support? Turned out it wasn’t a forced ‘have to’, but an unbinding and careless ‘want to’ for the man on the driver’s seat.
This was the first occasion when an entire German army under field marshal Von Paulas surrendered after bitter hand to hand fighting to the Russians. 93,000 German soldiers were taken POW and Winston Churchill referred to this battle ‘as the beginning of the end of the third Reich’. This in my view was the crucial battle that sounded the death of the German Army, for after this defeat the German army just could not recoup its losses and it was a one way downslide to defeat. Much of the reasons for this defeat must lie with Hitler who refused to allow Paulas to break out and ordered him to fight to the end. It was a glorious victory of Russian arms.
The Raksha Mantri and the present Army chief have to clean the mess. The army is too precious an organization and its morale cannot be allowed to suffer. Thus the only recourse is to convene a court martial for General Deepak Kapoor. There is no other way.
