Last stand of SAS heroes at Tobruk: The ultra-secret British troops who infiltrated enemy lines

Business
To jeers of ‘Dummkopf’, the convoy of lorries from Rommel’s Afrika Korps barely slowed as it sped through the checkpoint on the road into Tobruk. From the front seat, an officer in his Wehrmacht uniform imperiously waved his papers at the Italian soldiers manning the roadblock and barked that he had scores of British prisoners of war captured in the desert to deliver into custody. The Italian sentries lifted the barrier and waved them through. As the three trucks drove on unhindered, the ‘German’ officer could hardly believe the breathtaking bluff had worked. In reality, he was no German but Captain Henry Buck of Britain’s SOE, the Special Operations Executive. As for his 80 ‘prisoners’, crammed on benches in the back of the trucks, they were actually heavily armed British…

The story of Raghu Kumar’s Upstox and how their free investing, user friendly app, shocked the brokerage landscape

Business
As odd as it might sound, my brother (Ravi) and I knew that we wanted to get into the world of trading from a very young age. I grew up in the West (France, Canada, and the USA), and in the West one thing they do very well is cultivate the idea of thinking differently from an early age. When I was 15 or so, my economics teacher had a stock picking challenge for the class. Each student had a small amount of fake money to purchase stocks with. At the end of the year, the student with the highest returns would get a guaranteed top rank. Realising that the chance of winning was going to be very difficult, I knew I had to think outside the box. While everybody…

First Drive: BMW 5-series – Review

Auto
BMW 5-series Price in India   With a new platform and new engines, the 2017 BMW 5 Series looks to reaffirm its standing in the midsize luxury sedan segment. It distinguished itself decades ago as a driver's car and has since evolved into a sophisticated, comfortable sedan that attempts to be all things to most people. In the process, the 5 Series traded some of its driver's car chops for a more isolated feel. The 2017 model doesn't stray far from this contemporary vision of the 5 Series. And despite being a hair larger and bringing an arsenal of technology to bear, the new car manages to avoid the weight bloat that afflicts many such attempts.   BMW didn't take any chances with its successful product. The new 5 Series…
