A small thought......

If by any chance you happen to visit the eastern side of India,do visit this place..The place is called Tawang in the border state of Arunachal Pradesh..Apart from the natural beauty,the one thing that will catch the visitor's eye is the war -memorial built in memory of the brave hearts who perished in the 1962 Indo -China war..You will find the names of over 2420 soldiers etched in granite plaques...The soldiers who tried to protect their country and gave up their lives .....

It is definitely a sentimental moment ,for anyone who loves his country...

In this period of escalating tensions between neighboring countries..and the war cries....

Take a moment to think about all those who died protecting their country....
Take a moment to pay Your respects to them...
Take a moment to think about those unsung heroes who now just remain as names on a memorial...
And take a moment to think...DO WE WANT WAR OR PEACE???

  2. No one demands war. But the human or I would rather say, the animal part in humans makes the desire to show strength and resist and conquer. How can we ever bid farewell to these characters. may be we need to evolve.
