The Kargil war, which began in May 1999, lasted for more than two months before Pakistani soldiers, a bulk of them drawn from its Northern Light Infantry, and irregulars withdrew from the mountain tops they had occupied overlooking the Srinagar-Leh highway.

In the conflict, the Indian Army lost 490 officers, soldiers and jawans.

    Is there an accountability somewhere what was the punishment meted out to those who ignored the warnings about the incursursions initially. Words are cheap. It is not stan who is responsible for Kargil but the bafoons who let the guard down. The nation deserves to know what punishment was meted out to those bungling s responsible for the security of the nation.

          A national day to celebrate the martyred as well as the living men of Indian forces should be held, as should be a day for those murdered by terrorists. The photos and details of the UK 7/7 victims can still be retrieved from UK newspapers, left and right. We should value our fellow citizens if we wish to be a power, let alone a super one.
