In 1897 the Afghan tribe’s men notably the Afridi and Orkazai tribes revolted against the British. In an effort to contain them the British had earlier built two forts at Lockhart and Gulistan.In between these Forts they had set up a small heliographic communication post. This post consisted of a small block house with loop holed ramparts made of stone and brick. At 9:00 am Sept 12th, 1897, 10,000 Afghan tribal troops launched a surprise attack on Saragarhi. Saragarhi was manned by 21 Sikh soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment. The man in charge was Havildar Ishwar Singh.
“Oh mother, how many times I have told you that this will not do here. It is not permitted here. You are an educated woman. Last time I had allowed you but it does not mean that you should take it for granted”.
Hamida Banu Begam built Humayun’s Tomb in the memory of Humayun. There is a beautiful garden in front of the tomb with water channels. Qutab Minar looks fascinating at any time of the day. It is a majestic monument and mark of Delhi lives. It is located at South Delhi. The tourists cannot miss the Iron Pillar when they are in Qutab Minar.
A first look at the weapon does not please the eye. You can see the shoddy finish of the weapon and the engravings are effected in a crude manner. The revolver details and number could have been etched in a better way. Attention to the finer points of the weapon is sadly lacking. I compared it with the original Webley and the shoddy piece of workmanship of the IOF weapon clearly stands out.
In 2003 My family planned to move Australia. I told my wife, I can’t work hard, so I should not go to Australia. But my wife requested me to go with her. She told me, she will work and I need not to do any work. I should tell you that, that time, I could not walk, stand, sit or sleep. So thinking about doing hard work was only dream.
Auli today is known for its skiing slopes and winter sports. It has been a venue for Skiing festivals since 1986. Under the aegis of the Winter Games Federation of India, Auli hosts National championships in the months of February and March. Skiing events of the first South Asian Winter Games were held in Auli in January 2011. The skiing center was set up in Auli in 1984. The Uttar Pradesh State Government has a branch called Garhwal Mandal Corporation which runs the center. Skiing is taught by professional trainers. The Indian Army Rally discovered the spot when they were posted on the Tibetan border. The army has its own skiing center here.
You may find that size and weight restrictions are much stricter abroad than they are at home. We’ve had to check suitcases in China and Europe that we routinely carry on at home. There is no use arguing that you always carry them on. Those airline personnel have the final say… and if they say to check it…. you check it. At least you have the proper identification on it.
I fired about 20 rounds from the revolver and the weapon handled reasonably well. If the IOF pay a little more attention to details, they can have a winner to market. However to break into the international arms market the IOF will have to make a Herculean effort .They will have to lay down and follow stringent quality control norms.This should not be difficult as the IOF is manufacturing this weapon for decades.
