Chhattisgarh’s first lady Agniveer
Her story is one of resilience and courage.
She is an auto driver’s daughter.
Her father, who is reportedly battling cancer, sold his auto to fund her studies.
And today, Hisha Baghel, a resident of Borigarka village in Chhattisgarh’s Durg district, has made him and the country proud by becoming the first lady Agniveer in her state.
She is undergoing training — which she will complete in March 2024 — for the Indian Navy.
‘It is one of the best aircraft in the world’
BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.
Astra air-to-air missiles.
Just two reasons why India’s Su-30MKI combat aircraft have an edge over similar fighters operated by other air forces including China, says Group Captain Arpit Kala, commanding officer of the Su-30MKI fighter aircraft squadron.
“What makes the Indian Su-30MKI different from the flankers (Su-30 combat aircraft) operated across the world is that it is a beautiful integration of various weapons, sensors and avionics from all over the world,” says Group Captain Kala.
“It is one of the best aircraft in the world.”
A 75-year wait for electricity
Seventy five years.
That’s how long residents of a tribal area in Anantnag district in south Kashmir waited for electricity.

What Kashmiris want in winter
It can be summed up in one word — Harisa.
A delicious, centuries-old, dish that includes meat, rice, spices and saffron and is much in demand in the Valley as winter settles in as it helps keep the body warm.
Made in a big earthen pot locally known as mat, it is high in both protein and calories.
It takes 17-18 hours to cook a perfect Harisa and shops selling the dish are doing roaring business in Kashmir these days.

Who helped pregnant lady in remote Kashmir village?
She was pregnant and lived in a remote village near the LoC.
She needed to get to hospital, but the heavy snow that had blanketed Kashmir made that seem impossible.
