No words can come close to describing the exceptional courage and bravery demonstrated by the Indian Army during the Kargil War, in which 559 soldiers laid their lives defending their motherland and regaining the mischievously occupied territory from Pakistan Army. From May 3 till July 26 in 1999, the Indian Army fought relentlessly before declaring the mission successful and to this day, their sacrifices are commemorated by observing Kargil Vijay Diwas.
