Check out the special episode on The 'Kargil Vijay Diwas' that is celebrated on 26 July every year to mark the exit of Pakistan Army regulars and terrorists from Indian territory and Indian Army bunkers captured by them in 1999. The war was fought under the NDA government led by the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Tributes were paid to Kargil martyrs on the occasion of 'Vijay Diwas', a day commemorated as India's victory over Pakistan in the 1999 war. July 26th 2014 is the 15th anniversary of India's victory in the conflict. 527 soldiers had laid down their lives during the Kargil war. Military veterans and a large number of citizens participated in the event and offered floral tributes to the martyrs. The day on which the nation commemorates its hard-earned victory in the Kargil War is also an occasion that invokes feelings of both pain and pride for the families of the brave jawans who laid down their lives protecting the territory of India from intruders. As the country celebrates the 15th anniversary of its triumph in Kargil War, both the jawans and the families of those killed in the conflict have come a long way. The families of the soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice for the country make it a point to visit the war memorial in Drass, in Ladakh, J&K, each year on the occasion of Vijay Diwas. They remember their loved ones with pride, but the feelings of sadness have not waned. Fifteen years and many peace overtures later, the situation on the LoC and the border has not changed much. The troops on the other side occasionally open fire at Indian posts, thereby violating the ceasefire agreed between India and Pakistan in 2003. The army says it has not let its guard down and the jawans add that they are motivated and ready for any challenge. The Vijay Diwas makes the jawans remember the supreme sacrifices of their fellow soldiers and infuses them with a new vigour.
