Armed and Dangerously Smart

The one reason i have always loved this OTA is for the simple fact that there is no better place that i have seen in India a better example about the Empowerment of Women. From the usual sore eyed scenes of TV advertisements that portray women on washing machine, microwaves, crockery, cosmetics and not to forget the bathing soaps this is a refreshing change.


Give the girl a gun instead and the whole table is now turned around. Oh let me not insult those by saying guns, those for your kind knowledge are rifles that are as heavy as they can be. I tried to hold one of them and i could not lift it with one hand, too much heavy duty stuff!!! I have no clue how they hang it around their shoulders and casually carry/support it with one arm/hand and march upright that fast. Probably the army adultrates their drinking water with rocket fuel or something :-)
