Today is Kargil Vijay Divas! Let's salute our heroes!17 years ago, our great soldiers kicked out the wolves and hyenas who entered surreptitiously through Skardu, Gulteri, Ghanisabar and took shelter in the mountain peaks vacated by our soldiers during the previous winter in Kargil. The wolves and hyenas were continuously shelling the National Highway from Srinagar to Leh, disturbing the lifeline of Leh. After the positive environment created during Lahore declaration in 1998, it was a stab in the back of Indian political leadership.
India ultimately recovered from the rude shock and booted out the lowly beasts from its area. The indescribable gallantry of the junior officers and soldiers of the country would be written in golden letters in the annals of Indian Armed Forces.
On Kargil Vijay Divas (27th July), let us remember those heroes who brought victory to the country by their sacrifice. Let us also take a resolve that we would never lower our guard in future; we will never show an iota of mercy to these beasts on any occasion.
