It was in the wee hours of the day that something seriously bad happened.
The soldiers were most probably sleeping, totally unaware of what next was going to happen.
The silence of the morning was breached by the violent explosions and gunfire.
The sound of birds chirping was nowhere to be heard.
There was chaos and tension.
4 militants that had come with one mission “Kill as many before getting killed”.
“Fidayeen militants” are what they called.
These 4 killed our 18 soldiers.
Soldiers who were from different parts of India.
Some of whom had a huge family to support,
Some who were going to be married soon,
Some who was the only child of his parents,
It’s been 69 years since independence but our soldiers keep dying even in our own country.
“Kadi ninda” won’t work this time because it has never worked
“Take revenge”, “Avenge the deaths of our soldiers” is the call,
But will something concrete be done this time?
Only time will tell…..
P.S – There have unconfirmed reports about a surgical strike across the LoC which killed 20 militants.
