Default 10th Anniversary Of Kargil War

Light a candle and say a two minute prayer for the selfless, brave and yet unsung hero of the country, the Indian soldier, many of whom laid down their lives in the Kargil war and countless who continue to fight for us in counter insurgency operations.

The loyal Indian soldier stands alone

Somehow, whenever this day comes, I have tears in my eyes when I remember that someone gave up his life to protect my motherland and me. Its appalling to see and know that a soldier is treated like a third class citizen in this country of ours and his widow is sometimes left begging and having to run from door to door to get what they really deserve.

I remember this song from LOC:
"....bas itna yaad rahe, ek saathi aur bhi tha."

Thank you for starting this thread, comfortably numb. Two of my friends, Major Vivek Gupta and Lt Amit Singh gave their lives for the country during the Kargil war. Met Vivek while he was home for his last vacation in Doon and Amit spent the Diwali with me and my friends while he was a cadet at the IMA.

Proud of you guys.

My senior in school who fought kargill war was a colonel then and got Vir Chakra and now a Brig, had recounted the stories after he came back when the war was over.

I wanted to join the military but couldn't do so for many reasons. I salute all those soldiers who guard our frontiers in near inhospitable conditions without a care for their life and limb. It is because of them that we & our progeny sleep in peace.

JAI HIND...

Can't say I know anybody who fought in the Kargil war. I was in US and was keenly following the reports from back home. Felt pretty bad about not being able to do anything about it. During my NCC days I had a dream of a military career, but soon I got to wear thick glasses, and that ended the thought.

Bumping this thread.

BHPians,

Today is Kargil Vijay Diwas. Please spare a thought for our brothers in arms who have sacrificed so much (and continue to do so), so that we civilians can enjoy our freedom.

With gratitude...

Vikram

Thanks vikram, for starting and bumping up this thread. The least we can do is to pay homage to our soldiers.

Hats off to these brave sons of the soil. No words can describe their supreme sacrifice. I bow to them and offer my sincerest gratitude.

JAI HIND...

Jai Hind fellow Indians. Let us be thankful to the brave soldiers who gave up their lives for me and you and to protect our motherland. Remember that there is someone who is braving the elements and risking his life by standing at the borders so that me and you can sleep peacefully at night.
