Their Sacrifice, Our Safety

Things are turning into spirals as we are moving forward, this year is giving us endless surprises with haunted gifts beginning from Corona Virus to natural calamities to deaths and a plethora of hazardous things. While we were dealing with the demise of a Bollywood personality (Sushant Singh Rajput) the media channels on the other hand flashed the news of battle which took place at the Line Of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China, where we have lost our 20 brave heroes.

Deadly Ladakh Clash

The clash took place at a disputed border site in the Galwan area of Ladakh, in the Western Himalayas. It is an area with an altitude of around 14,000 feet where temperature often falls below the freezing point, where the soldiers stand day and night inorder to maintain peace in the country. India says “the violent face-off” is an attempt by China to “unilaterally change the status quo” on the Galwan Valley, whereas Beijing accuses the Indian Army of “provoking and attacking Chinese personnel, resulting in serious physical confrontation. This is said to be the deadliest clash between the two Asian countries in decades. Indian Army said 20 of it’s soldiers have been killed whereas the China’s defence ministry have not confirmed any casualties.

The Dynamite Heroes

The soldiers who stood day and night as the strong pillars for the country, for their people, for peace and sovereignty, we tend to forget their brave stories because according to us soldiers are meant to die, they are not soldiers, they are statues made of stone who are known as watchdogs of the country, but I would like to shed some light on them and their stories. Below are the names of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for us.

One of the brave soldiers Ganesh Kunjam(27), had fixed his wedding during the visit to Kukurtola in Bastar region of the state(Jharkhand) and one of the soldier who was blessed with daughter was planning to meet her after seven months of her birth but unfortunately couldn’t. We should think about the families who send their children to become soldiers to fight for their country, we should think about their children who haven’t seen their fathers for months and about the wives who wait patiently for their husbands to return. Above all we should think about those courageous fighters who stand day and night, leave all their comfort, go through all the harsh weathers just to save their country, their people who can stay in peace. We will never understand their condition of pain and suffering but we can always remember them in our prayers and should also pray for their families. We should think about the time when their families wait for the soldiers to return but they welcome themselves in a coffin, about the tears that the mothers shed, about the loss that they have to bear. Words cannot describe their pain and their condition. But we should always keep this thing in mind that war, bloodshed, pain, poverty will never end untill our so called politicians will try to resolve it peacefully but we as the citizens of the country should always continue to maintain peace among ourselves and should always follow the rule of humanity.
