Our Responsibilities As Civilians When India Is On High Alert

Our Responsibilities As Civilians When India Is On High Alert

For the next six months at least India is under threat of retaliation by our enemies. Here are some ways to behave as a responsible citizen during this time of national emergency.

1. What’s done is done. Forwarding jokes is fine but the situation is grim. So let’s come back to senses and ask ourselves, “What is my responsibility in a crisis”. Understand that *this is an hour of national high alert in India.* STOP and THINK for a moment.

2. “Loose lips, sink ships”. *Your facebook, Whatsapp & Instagram messages could go to our enemies within minutes.* if you have friends in defence, DO NOT share their messages to civilian groups. Just be silent for a few months on security matters. Your brilliant insights may be just what the enemy needs to understand the Indian psyche.

4. *Do not photograph or take videos of anything related to local or national security. No selfies with tanks or jawans*. The enemy is monitoring social media activity, city by city and tracking our forces.

5. *Do not take pictures in airports, railway stations, government facilities, etc. or circulate them*.

6. *Do not forward any sensitive videos and if anyone sends it in a group, caution the sender and insist on the admin removing it immediately.*

7. *Be on high alert personally, in public spaces* and in case of any security threat, alert local authorities immediately ( suspicious packages, panicked drivers near sensitive facilities, etc.) Become the eyes and ears of India’s security forces.

8. *If you have a flight/train to catch, arrive early* and help make the security checks smooth. Don’t throw tantrums and become a headache for the CRPF/security teams there. Instead greet them with a Jai Hind or Thank you, and receive a broad smile.

9. *Prepare yourself to be useful to the country in its time of need.* What can you offer: Learn first aid. Or traffic management. Or volunteer somewhere. Become useful in real life.

10. *Sensitize others* – family, children, youth, drivers, maids, friends, – that this is a time of national emergency. Make them feel their responsibility.

*Google to see what your responsibility is as a civilian in times of war. Share more of what you find. Be a responsible Indian citizen.*

Jai Hind ! Vande Mataram !!

Meaning to the “Last Post”!!

In all military funerals The Last Post is played;

We have all heard the haunting song, ‘The Last Post.’
It’s the song that gives us the lump in our throats and usually tears in our eyes.

But, do you know the story behind the song?
If not, I think you will be interested to find out about its humble beginnings.

Reportedly, it all began in 1862 during the American Civil War, when Union Army Captain Robert Ellicombe was with his men near Harrison’s Landing in Virginia .. The Confederate Army was on the other side of the narrow strip of land.
During the night, Captain Ellicombe heard the moans of a soldier who lay severely wounded on the field. Not knowing if it was a Union or Confederate soldier, the Captain decided to risk his life and bring the stricken man back for medical attention. Crawling on his stomach through the gunfire, the Captain reached the stricken soldier and began pulling him toward his encampment.

When the Captain finally reached his own lines, he discovered it was actually a Confederate soldier, but the soldier was dead..

The Captain lit a lantern and suddenly caught his breath and went numb with shock. In the dim light, he saw the face of the soldier.. It was his own son. The boy had been studying music in the South when the war broke out. Without telling his father, the boy enlisted in the Confederate Army.

The following morning, heartbroken, the father asked permission of his superiors to give his son a full military burial, despite his enemy status. His request was only partially granted.

The Captain had asked if he could have a group of Army band members play a funeral dirge for his son at the funeral.

The request was turned down since the soldier was a Confederate.

But, out of respect for the father, they did say they could give him only one musician.

The Captain chose a bugler. He asked the bugler to play a series of musical notes he had found on a piece of paper in the pocket of the dead youth’s uniform.

This wish was granted.
The haunting melody, we now know as ‘The Last Post’ used at military funerals was born.

The words are:

Day is done.
Gone the sun..
From the lakes
From the hills.
From the sky.
All is well.
Safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light.
Dims the sight.
And a star.
Gems the sky.
Gleaming bright.
From afar..
Drawing nigh.
Falls the night..

Thanks and praise.
For our days.
Neath the sun
Neath the stars.
Neath the sky
As we go.
This we know.
God is nigh
I too have felt the chills while listening to ‘The Last Post’
But I have never seen all the words to the song until now.
I didn’t even know there was more than one verse ..
I also never knew the story behind the song and I didn’t know if
You had either so I thought I’d pass it along.
I now have an even deeper respect for the song than I did before.

Remember Those Lost and Harmed While Serving Their Country.

Also Remember Those Who Have Served And Returned;
And for those presently serving in the Armed Forces.

As recd
Please send this on.
For our soldiers..

FACTS ABOUT KASHMIR TERRORISM.

FACTS ABOUT KASHMIR TERRORISM.

👁 👁 EYE OPENER 👁 👁

State of J&K Under India ( Area wise 101380 sq Km) Excluding POK.

Kashmir : 15%
Jammu : 26%
Ladakh : 59%

85,000 sq Km comprising 85% area are not Muslim Majority.

Population – 1.25 Crores

Kashmir : 69 Lakhs. (Only 55 Lakhs speak Kashmiri. Rest 13 lakhs speak Non kashmiri languages.)

Jammu : 53 Lakhs.
(Dogri, Punjabi, Hindi)

Ladakh : 03 Lakhs. (Ladakhi language)

This does not include 7.5 lakh people settled who do not have citizenship.

There are 22 districts in J&K. Out of which only 5 Districts where separatists have the say ;
Srinagar, Anantnag, Baramullah, Kulgam and Pulwama.

Other 17 districts are Pro India.
So separatist’s writ runs in just 15% of the population which are Sunni Muslim dominated.

Interestingly these 5 districts are far away from Pakistan Border/LOC.

There are more than fourteen major Religious/ ethinic groups comprising 85% of the population of J&K who are Pro India.

These include:

Shias ;

Dogras: (Rajputs, Brahmins & Mahajans);

Kashmiri Pandits;

Sikhs;

Buddhists ( Ladakhis );

Gujjars;

Bakarwals;

Paharis;

Baltis;

Christians & many more.

Majority of the people in J&K do not speak Kashmiri as their mother tongue. It’s Dogri, Gujjari, Punjabi, Ladhaki , Pahari etc.

Only 33 % people in Kashmir speak Kashmiri & this group controls narrative from Hurriyat to militants and from NC and PDP.

This 33% controls business, bureaucracy & agriculture. This sunni 33% is opposed to India although population of all other muslims in JK is 69 %.

Shias (12%), Gujjars Muslims (14%), Pahadi Muslims ( 8%), Buddhists , Pandits, Sufis, Christians and Jammu Hindus/ Dogras ( aprox 45%) are totally opposed to separatism and Pakistan.

Stone pelting , Hoisting of Pakistani flags & Anti India demonstrations are held in just 5 Districts in Kashmir valley.

Other 17 districts have never participated in such activities.

Poonch and Kargil have above 90% Muslim population. There has never been an Anti India or separatist protest in these districts.

It is only the Anti National Media and other Anti India forces who with their own nefarious designs have created an impression that “WHOLE J&K” is against India.

Whereas the truth is that just 15% of the Population comprising Sunni Muslims inhabiting 5 Districts of Kashmir province are fanning the separatist activities.

Please spread this message to every INDIAN to UNITE and SAVE the Sovereignty of Our Nation and Defeat the Nefarious Designs of Pakistan and root out terrorism.

Jai Hind

#Pulwama – Will it be a repeated timeline?

24 Hours post incident –
Waves and Tsunamis of abuses, supportive msgs , media howling , Politicians blaming each other, pictures of martyred soldiers and their families going viral.

Next 72-96 hours –
Euphoria of nationalism starts to die down in public, media and Indians. A little mention of what happened, some retired Generals on couple of debate shows on news channels , forwards circulating praising the altruistic and devoted soldier, some NGO raising money, angry statements from clueless Bollywood people, Internet drowned with arm chair generals and idiots giving advice on military tactics etc etc.

One week –
Media and politicians still using the incident to insult each other, some announcements of monetary grants, statements from MoD, Army, CRPF bosses continue , media praises some bureaucrat who raised the issue once with UN and did some job at-least.

One month –
Pulwama..what?

One year and beyond –
The mother still cries for her son, the wives will never hear from their husbands again , the children will grow up without knowing what’s father’s love and the friends will always start their drinking sessions with a tear in eye and saying cheers to their friend.

The country will move on definitely and very fast. But for those who have lost their dear ones, life comes to a stand still. Some of these troops come from families where they are the only earning members. From last three decades they have been putting their lives on line just to follow nonsensical orders from government after government.

I want to see one politician in this entire country who can tell his/her child that go and stand in front of crowd that’s hurling rocks at you by thousands but you can’t react.

I want to see one General who can stand up say enough is enough, and I can’t keep sacrificing my soldiers because you want us to fight with our hands tied behind our backs.

I want to see one party at Center who has the balls to say ‘ screw alliances , let’s sort this place out’ and jail all these terrorist supporters.

Thousands and thousands of soldiers have died defending immature , idiotic and short sighted decisions of our politicians. The life of soldier in Kashmir is end result of conflation of bad politics and gutless existence.

How this government will react is yet to be seen. But all I know is you realise it or not, every-time your soldiers are killed by Pakistani terrorists, the country dies a little bit. You have freedom because someone is paying for it with their lives, alive and dead !

Respect OUR ARMED FORCES in deed , in action & in heart.
Maybe even I am after all a social warrior BUT I hope & pray that the Anger keeps simmering until the Annihilation of OUR Enemies- AND Please keep Religion, Caste , Creed , regionalism & linguistic feelings OUT of OUR collective Conscience and NATIONALIST PATRIOTISM.
