Doesn't look like Soldier Yadav want to go back, lol! Finally I saw the "brave" swimmer, thanks ET! He was lucky the extremist radicals didn't see him first or he will be going back like the unlucky compatriot a short while ago. I bet he will have lot of friends to chat and tell his story of "the crossing" for years to come. Don't forget to ask for "more than a cup of tea" to tell your story Yadav! See you, bye!
