Senseless Kargil War

An Appeal By Bobby Singh

(Important Note: VSNL supports the cause of the young jawans and offers incentive to contribute to NATIONAL
DEFENSE FUND
)

SUPPORT OUR SOLDIERS

Family is the most important thing in everyone’s life. Can you imagine life without the most important family member in it ?

And as we sit right in our homes, safe and secure, at this very moment, there are a more than just a few young men out there, who’ve decided to take on the safety of the nation as their priority and duty.

Sacrificing their lives, giving up their families to save 900 million others, some of whom may not even care for them...…it's an action we should respect and thank god for not putting us there.

It takes a small step towards trying to ensure that the family of these valiant fighters can be well supported, as they strive and struggle to save us. For them the loss of their dearest ones is as painful as it would be to us.If you think you can contribute and make a difference in their lives, act now.

An Alternative Opinion about this War by Sunil Malahotra


A posting sent by an user on June 10, 1999:

After loss against Australia, India is back to normal with people still hoping for a miracle. Thanks to Prasad for sending 5 pakis back. In a way it was good that we lost and people now have come out of their craze for arguably most overrated, over promoted and overpaid team and are paying attention to real issue.

There is a war on in Kashmir and India has lost 51 soldiers and officers. They are fighting at a height of 17000 ft. It is -5 to -30 C in inclement

weather there. The intruders, 80% of whom are pak army soldiers, are at the top of mountain and our brave soldiers are actually climbing those mountains with rope against the fire.

Some figures that may shock you An Indian air force flight leiutanant is paid Rs. 1200 flying allowance per month and he is supposed to make 40 sorties in aging Migs. That is about Rs.25 per sortie after taxes. If he dies his family gets paid Rs.2 lakh.

The man of the match in any World Cup team gets 3000 pounds, about Rs.2.1 lakhs. When flying over Kargil at 18000 ft he is just 1000 ft above intruders armed with American stringer missiles and can easily be shot down. Yet, they do it. Nachiketa who returned from Pakistan captivity will be back for action this week. And they do this for whom ?

A person in Bihar has offered 111 coconuts and intends to offer 10001, A large corporate and BJP local unit offered prayer at Sidhivinayak temple and distributed prasad. A youth in Gujarat is on fast No, none of the above is for Indian soldiers, its for India's win in World Cup.

You I am sure are aware as to how important is life of a US marine. If 5 of them lose lives, all newspapers in US cry as if world war has started. There are stories of their families and how they curse US government. Fl. Lt. Ahuja was killed in cold blood and he was cremated by his four year old son.

The head line in times was about India's win over England. And our team can not make 4 runs in 7 balls against Zimbabwe. And people in India or Indian people across the world still worry about their performance.

We, the intelligent educated elite have failed this country. The least Indian cricket team can do is win the game against Pakistan and send all the reward and match fee to army relief fund. The least you can do is forward this mail to every Indian.

Dont delete the mail, you have 2 things to do.

1) Contribute.
2) Forward the message.
