Army man

Resharing this tale to drive home an interesting truth:
“A biker is riding by a Zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A reporter who has watched the whole event asks him, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life. I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’
The driver replies, ‘I’m a soldier by profession’
The journalist leaves And The following morning the newspaper reads, on the front page:
… and THAT pretty much sums up *the media’s approach to our soldiers operating in Kashmir…*”
