Real Life Heroes

 

 

Its been a decade since May  – July 1999 and today India celebrates it’s 10th anniversary of Kargil War.

This was a war that claimed the lives of over 500 of India’s bravest soldiers. There are no words which can do justice to the valiant act of our brave soldiers, to whom we are indebted forever. They are our True and real heroes.

These real life heroes fought the enemy in a terrain and altitude, where probably the everyday Joe that’s You and me would have difficulty in just moving from one spot to the other.

Today, with so much of media buzz I recollected my meeting with one of these Kargil heroes who had visited our College after this heroic victory. The way that legend spoke to us of the environment that was at the mountain peak, surviving that itself was a war.  It was a high altitude warfare in a mountainous terrain.

He mentioned on that during these unbearable and severe freezing chilly coldness, the armymen at times actually sat “on” the fireplace to beat the cold.  I remember the heroic soldier mentioning of the different phases of this heavy war.

Starting with Pakistan, infiltrating forces into the Indian-controlled section of Kashmir and occupying strategic locations enabling it to control NH1.

The second phase was of India knowing of this infiltration and sending across our forces.
 
Then, was the massive battle that ensued with Pakistan first attacking heavily and then our Indian forces responding with manifold strength.

The final attacks from our Forces happened in the last week of July and the fighting ceased on July 26 with our Victory. True to our country’s heroic character despite having to pay a heavy price for fighting a war within its territory, the Indian forces allowed the Pakistanis return across the Line of Control.

Casualties for both sides were heavy.

By the end of the war, India had resumed control of all territory south and east of the Line of Control, as was established in July 1972 as per the Shimla Accord. The day has since been marked as Kargil Vijay Diwas  – Kargil Victory Day in India.

    A SALUTE TO OUR TRUE HEROES

    करगिल विजय

    करगिल में शिकस्त दी, तब मोसम भी प्रतिकूल था.
    पानी की धारा जम रही,वहीँ रक्त में उबाल था.
    दुश्मन छुपा था मांद में,चढ़ना हमें हिम पहाड़ था.
    तिल-तिल बढे हम रेंग कर,मस्तिष्क में जलता भाड था.
    मोत की परवाह न थी,तन-मन में जंग जूनून था.
    सहास हमारा देख कर,क्षित माँ के ह्रदय सकून था.
    भारत की अपनी धरती पर,कपटी ने बिछाया जाल था.
    पाक के संग नेकी कर, चल ने से हुआ यह हाल था.
    जीवन मृत्यू के बीच अब,घुसपैठ का फल उन्हें देना था.
    अवरुद्ध हम बढ़ते रहे,दुश्मन से लोहा लेना था.
    रणबांकुरे विचलित न थे,यह समर नहीं अपघात था.
    गोली भी लगी पर डेट रहे,घाटी में हुआ रक्त-पात था.
    अब इन्ही विसम परिस्थितियों में,अपनी शक्ति को दिखाया था.
    चोंटी पर जब हम पहुँच गए,दुश्मन को मार भगाया था.
    वीरों के त्याग समर्पण से,जीता हम ने दुश्मन दल था.
    उन शहीदों की कुर्बानी से, पाया हमने विजय फल था.
    दुश्मन की हुई पराजय तो,वीरों का सीना फूला था.
    चोंटी(घाटी)पर तिरंगा लहराकर,’जय हिंद’का नारा बोला था.

    प्रहरी का प्रण
    बज उठा बिगुल संग्राम छिडा, दुश्मन सरहद पर आन खडा.
    जब जान लिया तो भुजा फडकी,आँखों में भी जवाला भड़की.
    मस्तिष्क में जोश जूनून चडा,हीना उन्माद में फूल उठा.
    नस-नस में रक्त प्रवाह बढा,बन्दूक हाथ ले निकल पड़ा.
    अब लक्ष्य रहा केवल इतना,दुश्मन की छाती भेदुंगा.
    आगे बड़ते निज कदमों को एक पल न पीछे मोडूँगा.
    जब तक है जान मेरे तन में,सरहद को न छूने दूंगा.
    घर के अन्दर जो आन जमे,उनके मै पैर उखादुँगा.
    अपने भारत की रक्षा हित,मै अपना खून बहा दूंगा.
    बलिदान करूँगा स्वयम का या,दुश्मन को खाक चटा दूंगा.
    अपने प्रण-प्राण से प्रहरी बन,जय हिंद का नारा बोलूँगा.
    कवी:- रामसिंह मीणा
