“Kargil is not a story of just winning.
It’s a story of pain with pride.”
The Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated every year on the 26 of July to commemorate India’s victory in the Kargil conflict with Pakistan twenty years ago. Named after the success of Operation Vijay, Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated to remember the supreme sacrifice of 500 brave souls who laid down their lives for the country. It reminds us of India’s military prowess and the great sacrifices our armed forces make while steadfastly keeping our country safe.
Let us honour the supreme sacrifices made by our soldiers and the exemplary courage displayed by them.
They gave up their today for our tomorrow
They wore a smile and laid down their lives
A salute to these gallant soldiers and their sacrifices
They are fallen but not forgotten.
