A 14-year old boy left home to fight terrorists in J&KNirmal Wagh, a 14 year old class X student from Vasai, Maharashtra, who left home last week allegedly to fight terrorists along with the Indian Army in Kashmir, was traced to Gujarat and reunited with his family on Independence Day. Nirmal lost his mother a few months ago, he used to speak about his desire to fight terrorists in Kashmir. His friends had ridiculed him. According to his father Prasanna who works in the BMC: "Nirmal loves history and has spoken about wanting to go to Kashmir. But I never thought he would think of venturing out alone." The current crisis in Kashmir had deeply disturbed the boy.
The boy left home with Rs. 2200/- without any cellphone. After 5 days he was traced to Surat. On the Independence Day, he was re-united with his father and other family-members.
I am deeply impressed by the young boy's patriotism and his sense of duty & responsibility to the nation!
