My Tribute to ACP Ashok Kamte who lost his life in Mumbai fight against terrorist on Wednesday. The tall Ashok Kamte was a bundle of opposites His fit, muscular build and trademark beret — rather than a senior police officer’s khaki cap — gave him the look of an army commando. And sure enough, he too had taken part in many encounters, earning a reputation for daring.

My tribute to ATS Chieft Hemant Karkare, IPS officer of the 1982 batch, had served in RAW for nine years and was made the ATS chief in January this year. He had solved the serial bomb blasts in Thane, Vashi and Panvel. The credit for the stunning revelations in the investigation of the September 29 blast in Malegaon goes to his credit. Karkare is known for his discipline and fair investigation. During the Malegaon investigation, Karkare had told his officers not to create false evidence, saying, “We have done our job and it is for the court to decide.”

My tribute to Encounter Specialist Bravo Mr. Vijay Salaskar

Vijay Salaskar was killed in Mumbai terrorist attacks on November 27th at Metro Cinema. I like to write a note on Mr.Vijay Salaskar and want to give my tribute to him for his brave and excellent life he live for our country.

With Tuesday’s encounter, the number of criminals shot dead by inspector Vijay Salaskar touched 78. Salaskar, who was reportedly sidelined for the last two years for unearthing the gutka-underworld nexus, was recently attached to the crime branch, where he currently heads the anti-extortion cell. An officer of the 1983 batch, Salaskar in his 24 years of service has eliminated many criminals. Amar Naik, Jaggu Shetty, Sadhu Shetty, Kundan Singh Rawat, Zahoor Makhanda are some of the gangsters who have fallen to Salaskar’s bullets.

The Long and Winding Road

the-long-and-winding-road

The long and winding road, that leads to your door

We’ll never disappear, I’ve seen that road before

It always leads me here, lead me to your door

The wild and windy night that the rain washed away

Has left the full of tears, crying for the day

Why leave me standing here, let me know the way.

 

Many times I’ve been alone, and many times I cried

Anyway you never know, the many ways I’ve tried

But still they leave me back, to the long and winding road

You left me standing here, along long time ago

Don’t leave waiting here, lead me to your door.

The Komodo dragon

komodo_dragon

The Komodo dragon is a species of lizard that inhabits the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Gili Dasami, in central Indonesia. A member of the monitor lizard family (Varanidae), it is the largest living species of lizard, growing to an average length of 2–3 meters (approximately 6.5–10 ft) and weighing around 70 kilograms (154 lb). Their unusual size is attributed to island gigantism, since there are no other carnivorous animals to fill the niche on the islands where they live, and also to the Komodo dragon’s low metabolic rate. As a result of their size, these lizards are apex predators, dominating the ecosystems in which they live.

 

Although Komodo dragons eat mostly carrion, they will also hunt and ambush prey including invertebrates, birds, and mammals. Mating begins between May and August, and the eggs are laid in September. About twenty eggs are deposited in abandoned megapode nests and incubated for seven to eight months, hatching in April, when insects are most plentiful. Young Komodo dragons are vulnerable and therefore dwell in trees, safe from predators and cannibalistic adults. They take around three to five years to mature, and may live as long as fifty years.

 

In the wild their range has contracted due to human activities and they are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. They are protected under Indonesian law, and a national park, Komodo National Park, was founded to aid protection efforts. (more…)
