REMEMBERING 9.11 .... FIFTEEN YEARS LATER ....
NEVER FORGETTING ....

As we remember the day fifteen years later, may the people of every religion, government of every country renew their pledge to fight terrorism with all we as humans have- the skill of communication, with the strength of unity, and also by physically dismantling the infrastructure that supports and shields this ugliest face of mankind ...

May we never give up, not till it is uprooted- in memory of those who lost their lives and others whose lives have changed forever ...

Wishing Everyone A Very Auspicious Ganesh Chathurthi!

FIVE FACTS ABOUT KARGIL WAR ON KARGIL VIJAY DIWAS

1. Kargil war was fought between India and Pakistan after Pakistani troops and Kashmiri militants infiltrated the Kargil district of Jammu and Kashmir along the Line of Control (LOC), taking the Indian army by surprise. 

2. India launched Operation Vijay to flush out the enemies. The war lasted 60 days, ending on July 26th 1999 when the Indian Army and the pressure from international community forced Pakistan back.

 3. Tiger Hill, one of the highest peaks in the Drass-Kargil area of the state, was the focal point during the war.

4. Pervez Musharraf , the then commander-in-chief of the Pakistan army, was the mastermind behind the attack, while Nawaz Sharif, the then Prime Minster, claimed to have been left in the dark. 

5. Hundreds of soldiers lost their lives on both sides.
