Listen to the UNKNOWN FACTS OF Kargil War | Straight from the Heart of a Soldier : Shifuji Shaurya Bhardwaj Ji
आओ जुककर करें सलाम उन्हें जिनका यह मुकाम आता है,
बड़े ख़ुश नसीब होते है वो लोग जिनका लहू वतन के काम आता है!
A lot shall be spoken about this day on social media with hash tags commemorating the sacrifices made by the soldiers’ valiant. Dignitaries of high posts, leaders of various political parties, and school captains in every corner shall also talk in high pitches remembering the valor of martyrs unknown.
But, who hears a Soldier with quivering voice recount moment by moment horrifying tales of the extensive torture faced and unsaid sacrifices made by every Captain, General and a soldier and their respective families? Rarely, very rarely does a Chief Commando’s Mentor of Elite Forces lets his soul bare and take a layman through the dark yet gritty world of the men guarding our Country in the chilling cold of Siachen Glacier.
On the 26th of July, 2016 we celebrate the 17th anniversary of the Kargil War, a pride inducing moment and a prick in the hearts of the soldiers who sacrificed their precious lives for us. When around 527 soldiers, JCOs and Officers of the Indian Army laid down their lives during Op Vijay with 1367 grievously injured brave sons of India, a small tear of pride falls down Grandmaster Shifuji’s eyes as he remembers the fallen in all their glory for our tomorrow.
The War which was fought at the heights of over 18000 feet, inhospitable rugged terrain, steep mountains, the likes of Vikram Batra, Manoj Pandey, Rajesh Adihikari made the supreme sacrifice at young age of 23. When the soldiers’ came wrapped in The National Flag with their closed eyes weary of the battle, one knows that the martyrs were certainly beaming with pride and love, for they had finally given up their lives for whom they lived for- Honor and Patriotism. “Ohh Youths of India, For our tomorrow they gave up their today. For you to play, dance, and speak freely, they lie in cold unbearable. For you to live, ohh Youths of India, they die, alone. All they ask in return is for respect, love and you to Pray. In the name of Honesty, Love and Valor.”
Let’s fill our heart with deep sense of pride that we are born in that country in which soldiers like Capt. Vikram Batra and many more brave hearts were born, as we for the first time hear untold stories, straight from the heart of a Soldier first and Chief Commando’s Mentor later.
