Pakistan blunts Indian Invasion - Indo-Pakistan War 1965 (Jang Khaidh Naeen)
The first encounter between the Pakistani and Indian land forces took place on September 1, 1965. At 3:00 AM, without a formal declaration of war, Indians crossed the international border of West Pakistan and launched a three-pronged offensive against Lahore, Sialkot and Rajasthan. This became known as the Second Kashmir War fought by Pakistan and India over the disputed region of Kashmir, the first having been fought in 1947. There was a fierce tank battle on the plains of Punjab. The domestic Indo-Pak conflict transformed into an international conflict and raised Super Power concerns. The war began following Pakistan's Operation Gibraltar, which was designed to infiltrate forces into Jammu and Kashmir to precipitate an insurgency against rule by India. The five-week war caused thousands of casualties on both sides. The largest engagement of the war occurred in the Sialkot region where some 400 to 600 tanks squared off. Unfortunately the battle was indecisive. Iran, Indonesia, and especially China gave political support to Pakistan during the war, thus suggesting new directions in Pakistan that might translate into support for its security concerns.

Most film buffs agree that 'Mr India' is the best sci-fi film to have come out of Bollywood. This only shows how little this genre has been explored in India despite sporadic attempts such as 'Koi Mil Gaya' and 'Krrish'. Though the Hindi dubbing of 'Robot', starring Rajnikanth, attempted to bridge the gap in 2010, Shah Rukh's home production 'Ra.One' and the 'Krrish' sequel can help the genre develop. "Indian film industry is technologically proficient today. Whether a sci-fi film would work with the Indian audience depends on how much they can connect with the concept," asserts V Srinivas M Mohan, the VFX supervisor of 'Robot'. by Naina
