After the fiasco over Savita Bhabhi, the illustrated porn website that got banned, the Maharashtra government is threatening another round of censorship, this time a blanket one. Maharashtra Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagwe announced in the Legislative Council that the government was considering a ban on porn sites. This comes in the light of an Army officer caught uploading clippings of child pornography. The state machinery says it has started a clampdown, with night patrolling of cyber cafes and police training on cyber crimes.
Once a Double Niner, always a Double Niner. So say soldiers of the 99th Field Regiment of the Indian Army, which was awarded the title ‘Sylhet’ for its gallantry in the 1971 War for the liberation of Bangladesh. First raised in Aurangabad as the 99th Mountain Composite Regiment (Towed) on 15 April 1964, it is remembered for its role in obtaining the surrender of Pakistani forces after a 25-day gun battle during the war. As this 20-minute documentary shows, the Double Niners were masters of tactical manoeuvres, a tradition they still try their utmost to uphold.
