The Leh-Batalik road is as notorious as the Srinagar-Kargil road. At its beginning lie staging areas, at its end fierce fighting and often, death. Jawans patrol the rugged slopes near Batalik. For them, there is little time for rest and little time to think, always poised on the edge of action.

JAI HIND!!!!

    Hi Amit,
    Today, my emotions are high on the occasion of 12th anniversary of kargil Vijay Divas. I was lucky to visit the site you have created and maintained to salute the martyrs of Kargil War.
    Especially when you are far away from your homeland, emotions makes you feel much stronger.
    I have so much to say but still I am running out of words.
    Jai Hind….

    Hi Abhinendra,
    Jai Hind !!
    This has become a fact – people get emotional only on very selected days like Kargil Day, 15th August, 23rd March, 26th January. And there are lot of people who are not even aware of some of the events on these days.
    I can understand your feelings, since I have also been out of country few times and it is at that time your motherland looks more dearer to you.
    Yes, this is a topic on which one can keep on writing if the emotions are rising high.

    Good to hear from people like you.
    Jai Hind
