Kargil The Untold Story
Look Inside the Book
Description
Author's Note

To me Kargil has been a mystery since the day one. It proved to be a tale which had all the elements of a suspense thriller-treachery, deceit, folly and bravery. I am sure the story of Kargil is still incomplete. To me it is the beginning of a more sordid tale to follow in the months or the years to come. The Kargil story has a political backdrop. The characters of this story are high and mighty politicians, Generals and bureaucrats. All they say, they may not believe in. All they do, they may not speak out They only throw up questions-no answers. They are actors, not real. The only living characters in this tale are the brave Indian army officers and soldiers who had written the Kargil: untold story in their blood. We salute them.

Introduction

The serene environment at the snow-clad mountains in the north lay shattered. The lengthening shadows of the gangs of rapists from across the borders threatened the very existence and the prevailing peace and tranquillity in the area. They came stealthily--from all corners, armed with sophisticated arms and ammunition. Not many knew when and how? Fewer cared to answer. The Nation was outraged. The Government was numbed into silence. Outrageous statements became the order of the day. People demanded explanation. None was to come forth. While politicians played politics, the army swung into action—to be joined later by the air force. The odds were heavy, the task (to flush out the intruders) insurmountable. Pakistan, the canny neighbour, was at its treacherous best. Its army regulars along with mercenaries had infiltrated the Indian soil and occupied the strategic peaks of the Himalayas with the seeming objective to cut off Ladakh region from the Indian mainland. They also occupied about 46 Km of Indian territory in Kashmir's Drass-Kargil-Batalik region. Nation cried for retaliation. Fierce battle ensued and valuable lives were lost. While our servicemen made supreme sacrifices and started pushing back the intruders. The world watched the rapists. Few uttered meaningless syllables' till US took the initiative and asked Pakistan to behave.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
