India’s Enemies, Beware The Garud
Location: IAF

Like the eagle, they are fierce. Brave. Tireless. And determined.

They are the Garud commandos, a special unit of the Indian Air Force.

The Garuds recently showcased their ability to thwart nefarious activities by India’s enemies.

In a video shared by the IAF, these elite commandos can be seen performing several exercises to eliminate enemies in close-quarter battles.

The IAF raised the Garud commando unit in 2004 with the primary aim to protect air force bases from enemy attack.

Over the years, their role has evolved to include special reconnaissance missions and rescuing downed pilots from hostile territories.

Inspiring! Nilam Sanjeep Xess
Location: Rourkela

He learnt to play hockey using bamboo sticks and balls made from torn clothes.

He still lives in a kuccha house in a village called Kadobahal in Odisha’s Sundargarh district.

His house has no gas or water connection.

Despite his adversities, his hard work has made Nilam Sanjeep Xess the Indian hockey team’s star defender.

The youngster made his international debut in the FIH World Cup which is currently being played in his home state.

Nilam’s father is ecstatic. “We are very proud that our son is representing the country.” But he has one request. “When our son comes home during breaks, he stays in our kuccha house. We will be grateful if the government can provide us with a pucca house.”
