Nagrota Martyrs: We salute our Indian soldiers and remembering their names
Often it is not a just a loss, but a pain which enters our heart, which don’t know how to go out, when we know this individuals had a great family as well. Many people only see them as a martyr, but there is much more than this, their family, their Childs, wife, brothers and sisters. We as a nation must stand by our Indian soldiers and just like PM Narendra Modi, when he said in one of the Maan ki baat, when we see a soldier passing by we should just stand from our place and give them respect. Truly they all need.
I know many Indians don’t have time, for all this but still can we just remember the names of our soldiers who scarified their lives for all of India.
