While Ajmal Kasab and his fellow terrorist Ismail Khan went on their chase to cause havoc in the Cama hospital, they were met with armed police forces. A battle ensued and Karkare, along with senior police officials Ashok Kamte and Vijay Salaskar, were killed outside the Cama Hospital after the terrorists opened fire on their police van.

Initially, they had managed to wound Kasab, but Ismail Khan appeared and fired a volley of bullets at them killing these Bravehearts. The martyrs were honoured with the Ashoka Chakra posthumously on January 26, 2009.

Another hero responsible for capturing Kasab alive and letting the world know about the depths of these terror attacks was Tukaram Omble. After the initial shootout, one of the terrorists was killed while the other pretended to surrender. But he soon changed his stance and opened fire at the police. Ombre in a heroic feat stood in front of Kasab and held on to the barrel of his rifle as the others overpowered him. Omble has taken over 40 bullets from the AK-47 at a point-blank range which made it impossible to keep him alive. On January 26, 2009, the unparalleled act of bravery was awarded the Ashoka Chakra.

Believe it or not, human minds have a weird way of action. We never know what it’s planning and how it responds. There’s a possibility that we may never know it in its full functionality. Rightly so, who doesn’t love peace and ambience? And the very thought of stress, indeed stresses us out. But there’s always light at the end of the tunnel and the thereby research has it that stress can be the new social motivation that you need.

Under all the negative aspects of stress lies a special benefit that could take you by awe. The research that was recently published in the journal Stress & Health stressed on the fact that experiencing stress in workplaces or everyday lives made people both more susceptible to both asking for as well as lending out social support. This sparks an unbreakable bond of gratitude and support among various individuals which helps people strive out of the toxic environment. Also, the extended support helped people to finally come out of the feeling of extreme stress and strain.

Stressors that promote the feeling of desperation and helplessness can be varied. From arguments with someone we love and care or at workplaces to stressful events at work or school to major disapprovals at home, there are many factors. But whatever be the cause of the stress, the aftermath is almost similar. The researchers agree on the fact that on average, participants of the research were more than twice as likely to either give away or receive some sort of emotional support during times that they experienced a stressor. This has been invariably linked to most of human behaviour.

In the study, it was asserted that women, in general, were more inclined towards engaging in more giving and receiving emotional support than their counterparts. Men were supposedly less supportive in terms of their counterparts. Though affirmative, the researchers were surprised that stress was linked to people not just wanting to get emotional support, but giving it as well. Hence though stress is often not the most positive feeling yet it still has the power to drive people towards attaining somewhat emotional closures and support and at the end, this is what that matters.
