I, quite, like these trends!

1. In Kashmir.

    The army chief had warned last month that the civilians trying to disrupt combat operations
    against militants will be treated as overground workers of terrorists and dealt with harshly.

    Protests began soon after a joint force of the army, the CRPF and the J&K police surrounded a
    house in which a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist was hiding in Zuin village of Badgam district in
    central Kashmir. The encounter had begun around 0530 hrs, but civilian protesters gathered and
    began pelting the forces with stones injuring more than 60 security personnel. The army, then,
    fired at the protesters killing three of them, even as the combat operation ended killing the terrorist.
    After the end of the eight hour encounter, the house in which the terrorist was hiding was razed to
    the ground with explosives.

    Way to go! Tough decisions are the need of the hour so that the terrorists, their sympathisers in
    Kashmir and Pakistan are given an unequivocal message, "Don't mess with us!"

2. The Air India's Stand.

    An FIR has been registered against Ravindra Gaikwad, a Shiv Sena MP, on the basis of a 
    complaint lodged by the Air India, for hitting its duty manager, R Sukumar, with sandals on a
    Pune-Delhi flight after it had landed. The MP was angry at not being given a business class seat
    though he'd boarded an all economy flight!

    The shameless MP, then, went on national television boasting about the way he'd manhandled
    the Air India employee. A day after the incident, the national carrier had cancelled his return ticket
    and even, Indigo followed suit, forcing him to take a train to Maharashtra. A travel ban by all the
    airlines on him exists as of now.

    Way to go! The Shiv Sena, instead of condemning the incident, has tabled a privilege motion
    in Parliament. The guy doesn't even have the decency to apologise for his boorish behaviour!
    What sort of a picture is he projecting to his own children, family? Disgusting! He'd to return
    to New Delhi by train, consequently about which I'm extremely glad.

3. Virat Kohli's Stand After Winning the Test Series.

    Before the series began, Kohli had said in Pune, "I'm really good friends with all these guys off
    field. When you step on to the field, I could be playing my big brother it wouldn't matter. I know
    the Aussies really well. I know where to draw the line". 

    Though India has won the test series, retained the number one position and clinched the Border-
    Gavaskar trophy, the series will be known for its foul mouthed verbal jousting and ill tempered
    Yesterday, asked if he still held that notion, he shook his head and said, "No, it has changed. I
     thought that was the case, but it has changed for sure. I've been proven wrong. The thing I said
     before the first test, that has certainly changed and you won't hear me say that ever again". The
     Australian captain, Steve Smith's on field behaviour with stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane at
     Dharamshala was unpardonable.

     Way to go! No other skipper has told the Aussies in such unequivocal terms that their attitude
     needs a change. Perhaps, it will give the ICC the reason to come down heavily on sledging!


By afternoon the news had come in that there's a white spot on Suresh's facial nerve, near the spot of the surgery, after studying the PET scan. Its biopsy is slated for Thursday and since it's painful, it's gonna be done in the operation theatre, under anesthesia.
