The nation was enamored by the army. Instead of protesting, we breathed a sigh of relief whenever the army threw politicians out and took over control of the country. The army was here, which meant that we could return to what the army stood for: security, stability and quality.

These hotels give a feel of being a part of the place itself and allow the guests to feel homely too. Two such Lansdowne hotels are listed below.

After about an hour, I was near the open jail. It was a nicely kept place. The inmates were taught many kinds of skills. Some of them were involved in farming while some others were making wooden furniture. I was happy to see my son sitting before a computer in the computer class. The prison officer was a nice fellow and he dealt very politely with the prisoners. I don’t know whether they dealt in the same way even with the illiterate inmates.

Furthermore, it needs to be noted that India uses the NSV and the M-2. One is the machine gun that replaced the DShK, and the other is the classic gun the DShK was built to match.
