The Memories of Kashmir War!
Unsung Soldiers of War
Doing their duties and dying desolate in the war fields of the nation, the unsung soldiers of Kashmir remain as a great example of sacrifice to the great nation of the world, India for the youth to emulate in life!
In the wars lives and wealth of the nations are lost and wasted; war is an expensive affair, which some nations prefer to continue longer! In the war many soldiers die as heroes for the sake of the nation leaving behind their beloved families, friends and great dreams!
War was not and will not be welcomed in anyway but wars worry the world even today; war is not the only solution to solve the disputes between the nations of the world. If war is the only solution, then the world development, culture and civilisation will become meaningless!
Indian apple, Kashmir India can never allow anyone to steal in the world! Kashmir is a beautiful rose flower, on which the eyes of East and West ever rest! Kashmir is the paradise on Earth, which no world tourist could fail to visit! Naturally, historically and politically Kashmir is a part of India in the world!
Branches of Tree
Having Himalayas at the top and the three seas surrounding it, India is a naturally formed nation in the world! Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan are all just the branches of the main tree called India like India, Russia, Japan, Europe, Australia and America are all the branches of the main tree called the World!
All branches cannot have separate existence without having attachment to the main tree! For their separate existence they cannot always expect support from the outside countries; so, the best course of action for them would be to have friendly relationship with the neighbouring countries of the world! Instead, both China and Pakistan barbarously shaved Kashmir, the head hair of India on the East and West as untrained barbers in the 1962 and 1971 Wars with India without a sense of beauty and goodness betraying the hand of friendship of India!
No Change in 36 Years!
In the 36 years, including China everything has changed in the world except Pakistan, which wages proxy wars with India using Afghan mercenaries, and Pakistan trained Kashmiri extremists in Kashmir! After the Indo-China and Indo-Pakistan Wars border disputes have not yet been settled among themselves. In the 1972 Simla Agreement was signed between India and Pakistan to settle Kashmir problem bilaterally through negotiations; however, in the 1999 War Pakistan tried to extend its Border Line of Control between India and Pakistan in Kashmir through the intruders; but all the intruders were successfully expelled from the Tiger Hills and Kargil sectors by the Indian Army unlike in the 1971 War!
Immediately after Independence, Pakistan tried by force to annex Kashmir with it unsuccessfully; so, Kashmir Province finished permanent accession of itself to India finally! From then on Pakistan is trying all possible tricks to take over Kashmir by hook or crook!
Also, Pakistan is internationalising the Kashmir problem and insisting on plebiscite for solving it; but losing all hopes in all attempts, with a burning heart Pakistan wants to take revenge on India like a tiger forever!
The tigers like the snakes will not leave free anyone who hurts them. The lionesses also like the tigers take revenge on others who hurt them; but the Indian Army, the casual lions won’t unnecessarily fight with others unless disturbed!
Why are the tigers still fighting with the lions when the dragons themselves have become silent before them? Like the lions the dragons too have culture and wisdom with them, but what have the tigers with them? They have only religion without reforms which also they don’t understand and follow sincerely! Love, brotherhood and unity are what all the religions of the world preach to the people everywhere; when this is so, why the hell are they behaving so barbarously like beasts even in this modern age? In the name of religion they deceive and destroy the men of their own religion and race by themselves! This the men of that religion should understand and live in peace with the other religious races in the world. Unable to develop its own economy and people what is the use of Pakistan spending a lot in waging wars against India? When it is in shambles how is it possible for it to provide all for the people of Kashmir once it becomes part of Pakistan? Meaningless madness makes men lose knowledge, wealth, power, possession and prestige in the world.
When Russia was a friend of India because of its moral cause, strangely all the countries in the world supported Pakistan then! After Russia has become a friend of America rightly all the countries in the world have stopped supporting Pakistan now! So, Pakistan should know that “A bird in hand is worth two in the bush!”
When they are not able to take care of their own country how will they do so with a part of another country they conquer? Instead inhumanistically Pakistan goes on fighting against its neighbour and meets with humiliating defeats at all times! Pakistan neither lives in peace nor leaves India in peace, and develops international tension with its friendly Muslim countries too! With this kind of unworthy neighbour how is it possible for India to develop lasting friendship in Asia?
On some 20,000 feet high Snow Mountains, where nobody can survive for six months in the winter the well equipped intruders took positions on various points to fight against the Indian soldiers and extend their Line of Control! So, how delicately dangerous a duty it would be for the Indian soldiers to do when dealing with the Pakistani intruders in Kashmir respecting the Line of Control and safeguarding the sovereignty of the nation while expelling out the intruders from the Indian soil!
The faces of the Indian soldiers seen during the war in the TV News are never ever to be seen anywhere later; for, they have met with martyr’s death while fighting against the intruders high up on the Snow Mountains! Only the soldiers’ dead bodies returned to their native places plunging one and all in deep grief forever and ever! Though unbelievable, it is a hard truth of the story of the unsung soldiers of Kashmir never to be forgotten for years to come!
