Our brave army fighters had faced and bravely fought thousands of war, but today we are celebrating a special day because its the day when we won the Kargil war, and this day is known by the name of “Kargil Vijay Diwas”. Not only we are celebrating the Kargil Vijay Diwas, but we are also remembering the father and his colonel son who was together in this war.
It was the year 1999 when our country successfully took those areas from Pakistan that was rightfully ours and this Kargil war was fought for complete 60 days starting from 3 May and later ended on 26 July. So, every year we celebrate the Kargil Vijay Diwas in which we remember and pray for the soldiers who fought for us and sacrificed their lives to keep us safe.
This day is celebrated at a huge level in the Kargil-Dras sector located in Delhi where the Prime Minister currently Narendra Modi prays for the peace of our Amar army officers at Amar Jawan Jyoti located at the India Gate.
Talking about the father-son dua, there was Lt Gen AN Aul who was the commander and his son Amit Aul was the colonel and won the war. This year they both visited the Lanochan in Drass where the war happened and prayed for those soldiers who died.
Even if we support a single family of an army officer, then also it will be less for us because what they did for us we can never forget. We as normal office going humans thinks that we are living a normal life but this normal and peaceful life to us is actually given to us by our heroes. We are proud and lucky to have such an army community who makes sure that we live in peace. Nothing is bigger than dying for the nation.
Whenever you see an army officer, do salute them, they are the reason of our happy life!
