Indian Army's efficient response to snow calamity in Kashmir 15.3.2014 DNA: Popular News
End of season snowfall in Jammu and Kashmir, especially so in the Kashmir valley, tends to be heavy and damaging. The normal time for such a snowfall is end-February; its occurrence this year in mid-March has taken everybody by surprise. The snowfall led to avalanches in a number of places. It brought in its wake disruption of communication; blocking of the national highway; wide spread power outages; damage to houses and other structures apart from loss of life As with everything else in Kashmir this natural disaster has also been widely politicised. Separatist leaders have used the opportunity to castigate the government for not having its systems in place to deal with the situation.

Stalingrad – review 23.2.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
One of the grimmest episodes of the second world war is recreated as special-effects kitsch This Russian 3D spectacle comes preceded by an Imax trailer that blares: "MIND-BLOWING IMAGES! EARTH-SHATTERING SOUND!" – which I dare say accurately describes one of the grimmest episodes of the second world war. Made by the director of 2005 Afghanistan war drama The 9th Company – and a leading Putin supporter – this account of the Battle of Stalingrad spares no expense, or CGI firepower, to tell the tale of five brave soldiers and a plucky lass (Maria Smolnikova) who stand alone between the German army and the Volga. Bizarrely framed by an episode about the Japanese tsunami relief, this visually murky, narratively clunky drama feels like a throwback to the Soviet cinema of the 60s, with a splash of Sam Peckinpah and the odd Matrix -style flying-bullet effect.
