A miracle happened in the highest battleground of the world, where one of the ten personnel who had gone missing in the avalanche was found alive. He has been identified as Lance Naik Hanamanthappa Koppad (resident of Betadur, Dharwad district of Karnataka) belonging to the 19 Madras regiment. The remaining 9 have been declared dead. It is something to cheer for us as the nation was struck with shock and grief over the news of 10 soldiers vanishing due to avalanche in the Siachen Glacier. This initiated one of the toughest and sophisticated search operations featuring specialised Army teams, backed by sniffer dogs, ice-cutters, drilling machines and other heavy equipment and not to mention the whole operation took place in the harsh weather and terrain.

This came at a time when almost everyone had lost hope of finding any survivor. Subject to favorable weather conditions, the soldier found alive will be airlifted out of Siachen. The other 9 soldiers have been identified as Subedar Nagesha TT (village Tejur, Hassan Dist, Karnataka), Havildar Elumalai M (Dukkam Parai, Vellore Dist, Tamil Nadu), Lance Havildar S Kumar (Kumanan Thozhu, Teni Dist, Tamil Nadu), Lance Naik Sudheesh B (Monroethuruth, Kollam Dist, Kerala), Sepoy Mahesha PN (HD Kote, Mysore Dist, Karnataka), Sepoy Ganesan G (Chokkathevan Patti, Madurai Dist,Tamil Nadu), Sepoy Rama Moorthy N (Gudisatana Palli , Krishna Giri Dist, Tamil Nadu), Sepoy Mustaq Ahmed S (Parnapalle, Kurnool Dist, Andhra Pradesh), and Sepoy Nursing Assistant Suryawanshi SV (Maskarwadi, Satara Dist, Maharashtra).

The Logical Indian is happy on finding one of the brave soldiers alive and our deepest condolences go to the other 9 who could not survive. We salute the Indian Army for not giving up their rescue efforts, it is their grit and determination in the toughest of conditions that have resulted in this miracle to happen.
