“Well, I don’t have a heart touching sad story or an incident to tell.
Its all about a road trip. A road trip to Leh-Ladakh via the most talked about state of our country, J&K. Until I left home, all I heard was advises and concerns of people regarding Srinagar. Its not safe, there’s danger out there, don’t go out at night there in Srinagar etc etc !
With the same mindset, as I reached Srinagar, I was afraid too. But ! There in the utmost extreme conditions, reside the real heroes. The Indian Armed Forces. On the way I met a couple of them just to ensure we are safe as we were driving at Night. And all of them said one and the same thing “Aap araam se ghumo, maze karo, hum yaha aap ke liye hi hai, harek pahad par jaha aap ki nazar nahi pohach sakti waha humari fauj hai”. In the lap of the nature, in the endangered paradise of our country, they live to protect the people, the pride of our nation. Its perfectly safe out there, only and only because of these heroes!”
