Sharma | Palampur | Updated: April 30 2014 2:57 am Related News BJP Prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi invoked a line made famous by Kargil martyr Capt Vikram Batra “Yeh dil maange more” to seek votes in the latter’s hometown of Palampur on Tuesday “This is the land to which martyrs like Somnath Sharma and Vikram Batra belong I would also say ‘Yeh dil maange more’ I would like you to get me 300+ kamals (lotuses) and I assure you that I will fulfill your dreams” Modi said He repeated the phrase — the catchline from an advertising campaign which Batra had quoted before he died in the Kargil conflict — at his other rallies in Mandi and Solan also as he asked people to ensure the BJP’s victory in all the four Lok Sabha constituencies of Himachal Pradesh “What kind of government do you want at the Centre A feeble government of maa-beta or a strong and stable government If you want a strong government you must give me 300-plus kamals (lotuses)” he said in Solan At his rally in Palampur he dismissed the “one rank-one pension” promise made by the UPA government “For the last six-seven elections Congress has been using these tactics In every election in the past they promised to implement the one rank-one pension scheme for the defence personnel but they still haven’t been able to do so Doesn’t this amount to cheating soldiers who sacrifice their lives for our nation Today a mother in this area feels proud to see her son wearing the Army uniform But if the Centre’s attitude remains like this will any more Vikram Batras be born here” he said Targeting young voters Modi said “The age of 18-28 years is the most important period of a person’s life… If five years get spoiled because of voting for the wrong party your entire future will be destroyed These elections are just like Class 12 exams If you fail your Class 12th exams your future is ruined” Adding to the escalating war of words he said “Congress is a party of cheats… Their manifesto is nothing but a paper full of lies” Terming the Lok Sabha polls as a historic battle he said “On one side there are rulers who have looted the nation for 60 years and on the other side there is a new hope confidence and faith… It is the people of this country who are fighting these polls with the hope of changing this nation” Trying to strike an emotional chord he said “When Atalji became the prime minister people of Himachal used to say with pride that ‘the PM is ours’ I have also spent important years of my life in Himachal Pradesh before moving to Gujarat I assure you that if the BJP comes to power you can again say that the PM belongs to Himachal” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Rashmi Rajput | Mumbai | Updated: April 21 2015 11:24 am Operation Rahat had to be conducted over two to three kilometres away from the port as the escalated conflict made it impossible for the Navy vessels to anchor at Aden port Related News On April 10 as INS Tarkash entered the Gulf of Aden to rescue Indian evacuees from strife-hit Yemen officers saw two small passenger boats packed with Yemeni nationals waiting Commanding Officer Pradeep Singh was surprised He had been told only Indian nationals were waiting Singh had to make a quick decision — the foreigners wanted to embark on the ship that was leading Operation Raahat of the Indian Navy the Government of India’s mission to evacuate ‘only Indian nationals’ stranded in the region Eventually INS Tarkash would rescue Indians as well as foreigners “We reached Aden by 930 am While the order was to evacuate only Indian nationals we could spot two passenger boats carrying only foreigners When I checked with a point person at the Aden port I was informed that Indians evacuees were being held hostage and would be released only if the foreigners were taken on board It was a very peculiar situation that required caution — one wrong move and it would have cost us immensely We therefore decided to rescue even the foreign nationals but with a condition that our Indian nationals be ‘released’ and sent immediately for evacuation It was only after this that the Indians were brought in” Singh told The Indian Express Share This Article Related Article With Operation Raahat coming to an end on April 16 the crew returned with tales of a complex assignment completed successfully — a total of 3074 people were evacuated including 1783 Indians and 1291 foreign nationals On March 30 guided-missile destroyer INS Mumbai and guided-missile frigate INS Tarkash sailed from Mumbai to Yemen Two Indian passenger ships MV Kavaratti and MV Coral that normally ply between Kochi and the Lakshadweep Islands also sailed from Kochi towards Yemen INS Mumbai and INS Tarkash were to escort these passenger ships till Djibouti Operation Raahat had to be mostly conducted over 2-3 km from the port as the escalated conflict made it impossible for the Navy vessels to anchor at the Aden port The Navy followed a standard drill — primary checks by a pointperson either from the Yemeni government or the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) at the Aden port a passenger boat for the evacuees and then a screening before they could embark Documents were actually verified in real time by officials seated in a makeshift control room in a Djibouti hotel ‘Twice we found live bullets being brought on board’ Rakesh Singh 22 is one of the youngest officers who participated in Operation Raahat The radio officer on INS Tarkash describes the dense smoke blurring Yemen’s skyline the constant shelling and explosions “Mujhe laga ki mai zinda nahi aa paunga (I thought I would not return alive) The situation was very tense there I was afraid for my life” Singh recounts while speaking to The Indian Express from the deck of INS Tarkash which anchored in Mumbai last week A native of Bihar Singh joined the Navy in August 2012 and has been posted on INS Tarkash since “As a radio officer my core duty is to monitor the message and play out messages I am not in combat but Operation Rahaat put me on field duty which was new to me” he says “We were told around five hours in advance to be prepared to leave for Yemen I did not get the time to inform my family members or my girlfriend When we reached the Gulf of Aden we could hear constant shelling The war was advancing and the rescue operation became an uphill task” he recalls During the operation Singh was also part of the team that screened the baggage of evacuees “Twice or thrice while screening we found live bullets or magazines being brought inside the vessels and so we intensified the process and made it stricter to ensure that no untoward element boards the ship” he says “At one point there were armed men with AK-47s walking to us I thought they might shoot us down The only thought that crossed my mind was that I could not speak to my parents but the commandos were able to rein the gunmen in” he says With thousands trying to flee the biggest task was to screen those embarking “There were more than 10-12 people on a boat and at a time 10-15 boats would line up for evacuation and therefore we had only about 30 seconds to screen a person” says Com R V Subramanian He was also part of the team that boarded the coffin of Manjit Singh a resident of Himachal Pradesh who died in the bombings “We managed to get the local authorities to put the body in a makeshift coffin There was no cover on the coffin and we used a cloth” he says Medical challenge they didn’t anticipate Principal Medical Officers Sudhanshu Shekar (25) and Roj Titus Ninan (25) had stocked medical supplies while leaving for Yemen including antibiotics dressing medicines and ointments to deal primarily with burn injuries but the young officers were about to face a tougher challenge — a 37-year-old Yemeni woman 9 months and 4 days pregnant “One of the passenger boats was carrying a heavily pregnant woman These boats drift in the waters and so embarking on a Navy vessel becomes a tough task With two officers in the passenger boat and two more hanging on the poles of the vessel we managed to pull the woman safely inside” Ninan explains “She had been fasting for two days and was dehydrated We gave her the required medicines and supplies and observed her closely We then moved her to a special room in the sailors quarters We took an oral consent from her husband to perform the delivery in case she slips into labour” he added “Two hours after embarking at Djibouti port she delivered a healthy baby When I heard the news it brought a smile on my face” he adds The medical officers also remember the counselling they had to offer to some evacuees “Many a times they did not speak at all especially children When we tried to strike a conversation they would just look at us with a blank expression as they were overawed by the situation Some of them would break down and were inconsolable” Shekar says Most had the same narratives that of a bomb close to their homes and then a hurried evacuation Navy Commandos who ensured their safety The Navy commandos played the most pivotal role in the operations They ensured armed men did not embark the vessel In one such situation they were able to rein in a group of 10 gunmen threatening to open fire if they were not taken on board “There were 10 armed men surrounding the vessel They wanted us to take them along with two families they had escorted When we refused to do so they threatened to open fire We could not communicate with them as they did not understand English or Hindi We used sign language to communicate We told them that we are not going to take them on board They finally relented and went away” said a commando who did not wish to be

there was not much India could offer in terms of world music Till German musician Prem Joshua entered the scene While his resplendent sitar strains were a reminder of what we heard in India from prominent sitar players when he played along with his band one saw a fine balance of Hindustani classical music with rock and jazz The result was a fascinating world of trance and lounge music Joshua soon became a well-known name First in the more “open” music circuit and later even among the “classicists” who considered anything beyond classical music a din “I’ve been coming to India for almost 40 years and the relationship has only grown I have a special connection with the country that defines my musical sensibilities” says Joshua 58 He will be performing today with his band in Delhi at the opening of the two-day Rhythm and Blues Festival which will also feature Shillong Chamber Choir Ministry of Blues Subramania — which features Bindu and Ambi Subramaniam children of legendary violinist Dr L Subramaniam — and The Sami Sisters among others Joshua first came to India at the age of 18 after he stumbled upon a scratchy 72 rpm which was a festival recording of Concert for Bangladesh comprising two benefit concerts organised by George Harrison and Pt Ravi Shankar in 1971 One side of the vinyl had a recording by Shankar his guru bhai and sarod legend Ut Ali Akbar Khan and tabla maestro Ustad Allah Rakha “I was a music aficionado as a teenager and would listen to a lot of recordings and visit concerts But this particular sound that I heard on the album Concert for Bangladesh was something else I was so mesmerised and it left such an impact that I decided I must visit the land that was producing such beautiful music” says Joshua who roamed the streets slept alongside beggars and sadhus on pavements ate food at gurudwaras and busked with his flute to earn money “My parents told me I was destroying my career and deserved better” says Joshua But he was persistent He learnt from many teachers before he stumbled upon Ustad Usman Khan famed classical singer Ustad Abdul Karim Khan’s son in Pune Joshua came to the city following Osho whose “teachings and sense of humour” had inspired him Khan asked Joshua to unlearn everything and began teaching him Hindustani classical music of the Kirana gharana “He gave me rigorous training for which I will be eternally grateful” says Joshua But soon the jazz musician in him wanted to explore the sounds he was listening to and learning alongside the ones he knew “Soon I was creating my own music” says Joshua Khan was disappointed “He had high hopes from me But one has to do what one has to do” says Joshua who began performing in India and found attention from a younger audience His first album No Goal but the Path (1991) followed by Mudra (1998) and Dakini Lounge (2003) had him travelling the world with his band comprising Raul Sengupta on the percussion Satgyan Fukuda on electric bass and

privacy of the critically overweight woman However when she was to be moved to Abu Dhabi for further treatment a media circus was let loose on her The authorities protest that Eman’s family agreed to media coverage at the time of admission But there is a difference between media interest in treatment — a paper in the British Medical Journal a science article in a daily — and the human interest story which brought a horde of reporters and cameramen to cover her departure from the hospital The overweight were forced to perform as carnival freaks just two generations ago They are still stigmatised and there is an unhealthy public interest with their lives The hospital should have been sensitive to this but did not wish to keep the press at bay The patient was in the thick of the melee that ensued and her sister was pushed around by mediapersons eager to get to her Besides a quick getaway proved to be impossible because the occasion had to be graced by the presence of the
