Kargil Vijay Diwas: A day of pain and pride for kin of bravehearts who made supreme sacrifice
(Ladakh), Jul 26 (PTI) It has been over two decades since the Kargil War but Kanta Devi remembers every last word of her conversation with her son before he left home for the battlefront.
He had said that he was the son of the country and not mine, an emotional Devi recalled on Vijay Diwas. She was here to visit the Kargil War Memorial to pay her respects to her son, Grenadier Udhaymaan Singh, who sacrificed his life for the nation during the 1999 conflict.
"I feel happy and proud to see that everyone is paying respects to my son but I did not want to lose my (only) son. I feel so much pain," she told PTI.
