Sample text:


Major Akhil Thapar woke up with a start. Sweat dripped from his forehead on to his nose. The swoosh, swoosh, swoosh sound of the ceiling fan was doing him no good. His nightmares were back.

Things were hazy, in fragments, in some sort of flashback. But he knew this nightmare too related to Poonch where he was then posted with 1/5 Gurkha Rifles just a few years back.

What a freezing night it was, with the cold air slapping his face. There was snow everywhere.

His unit had information that five Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists from Pakistan were hiding inside a mosque. Akhil was tasked to lead the operation, and he with his boys could soon surround the mosque. He used a megaphone to command the terrorists to surrender. Standard procedure. In response, they heard gunshots. Quite predictable.

His men returned the fire. The sound of blazing guns from both sides was deafening. Smoke filled the air. Akhil’s throat was hurting. Then the terrorists hurled hand grenades. The shrapnel caught some of his boys by surprise who shrieked, more in anger than pain.

The gun battle lasted a few hours. Four terrorists were killed, one escaped.
