“Kargil Vijay Diwas is a symbol of fearless determination and exceptional valour of our Armed Forces.”
The students of NPS Whitefield, Class 9 celebrated Kargil Diwas, on 26 July, 2021, in order to pay their respects and commemorate the day, which, in the words of our Ex- Prime Minster Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee is symbolic not only of our Self- respect as Indian citizens but also as a step against injustice.
A relevant thought for the day spruced up the spirits on this bright Wednesday morning, making all alert and receptive for the News from across the Nation and the world.
A moving speech encompassing and recalling the significance of the day was delivered by the students. It was on July 26, 1999, that the Indian Army had declared successful culmination of “Operation Vijay”, after nearly a three month long battle on the icy heights of Kargil. A stimulating Kahoot Quiz too, was included for the Session.
It was indeed a proud and pathos filled moment when a video that showcased an NDTV footage of the War from ground Zero, recounted images of this momentous war of our times, where soldiers sacrificed their lives not only for the present but also the safety of future generations. This special coverage made us all relive the gallantry and heroism, of the soldiers who were positive even in the jaws of death. We salute their Sense of Duty which is supreme, even today. We need to acknowledge their oblation at the Altar of our Motherland. They truly, are the ‘Immortals’.
