At a time when the Sahayak or buddy system in the army is under scrutiny, families of two martyrs — an officer and his buddy — carry forward the bond shared by the two soldiers who laid down their lives fighting the enemy together. Captain Tushar Mahajan and his buddy Lance Naik Om Prakash were awarded the Shaurya Chakra, a gallantry award posthumously at the Investiture Ceremony in Rashtrapati Bhawan on March 20, along with 38 other recipients. On February 21, 2016, Captain Mahajan risked his life trying to extricate his 'buddy' Lance Naik Om Prakash, at a government office building in Pampore, Jammu and Kashmir where Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists were holed up. Both soldiers succumbed to their injuries. The two men, in their death, have brought two families from entirely different backgrounds closer, sharing the same pain. Tushar's mother feels that she can relate to Om Prakash's wife, Krishna as they both lost the men they love immensely. During their stay at a hotel in Delhi for the ceremony, Asha Rani ...

Dinesh Karthik becomes one man army as Tamil Nadu beat Bengal to win Vijay Hazare trophy 20.3.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Senior pro Dinesh Karthik produced an innings of character before Tamil Nadu's disciplined bowling effort saw them beat Bengal by 37 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy final in New Delhi on Monday. This was the third time that Tamil Nadu prevailed over Bengal in the National One-Day meet having beaten them in 2008-09 and 2009-10. Karthik (112) was the only significant scorer for Tamil Nadu en route to their meagre total of 217 in 47.2 overs as Mohammed Shami bowled with a lot of fire, scalping 4 for 26. Ashok Dinda (3/36) also rattled the top order. But Tamil Nadu bowlers showed unbelievable discipline restricting Bengal to 180 on a pitch that didn't have any demons. Off-spinner MS Washington Sundar (0/17) didn't get wickets but kept the Bengal batsmen on tenterhooks in his eight overs spell. Rahil Shah, Aswin Crist and Mohammed Mohammed all did what was required to defend a small total. Trying to be extra cautious, Shreevats Goswami (23) consumed a lot of deliveries at the onset increasing the pressure. A ...
