story teller: The Story Of the Last Prisoner Of War

story teller: The Story Of Last Prisoner Of War
This link was sent to me by Mrs Rita Chauhan (then Rita Panwar) who taught me in school when I was in Class 9. Now 41 years have passed and she still keeps in touch with the naughtiest of her students – me!
Read this story – it deserves to be read and that is a tribute  to “Joe” who was an Indian Army taken prisoner by the Pakistan army and incarcerated there!

This is one of the most pragmatic and thrilling video films about Mars that I have seen ever since I started searching for information about the red planet – Mars. The narration is clear and lucid and designed for every one to understand without any technical jargon to confuse people who do not have a technical science background or exposure to such an environment. Do spend some time to see the video and hear this wonderful narration with your speakers on. You will remember it always as most memorable.
