A Decade ago, On July 26th, 1999, India won Kargil war, an event which holds a special place in every Indian’s heart. Aishwarya Rai‘s hubby Abhishek Bachchan covered an extra mile and paid a visit to the soldiers who in the most difficult situation are standing strong and protecting our country from the enemies. On 26th July 2009, Abhishek Bachchan pauid a visit to some war zones at Kargil and Drass. He met lot of Indian soldiers there in and had long chats with them. Surely his presence made many soldiers happy. But this wasn’t all. Abhishek Bachchan carried with him “Gajar Ka Halwa” (An Indian Dessets made from carrots) and “Aam Ras” (Another Indian Dessert made from mango fruit). These two delicacies were prepared by none other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan. Ahhh! I can’t even begin to think how happy that would have made our soldiers!
Obviously, whole of India paid homage to the martyrs of the Kargil war this sunday, but the Bachchan’s gesture of showing true support was fabulous. Abhishek Bachchan along with media channel NDTV remembered the sacrifice of the Jawans who gave their life for India in the Kargil war 10 years back. Abhishek also recited a beautiful poem titled “Agnipath” to the soldiers. The poem was composed by Abhishek’s grandfather, Mr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan, who was one of the best poets that India ever had. And when the whole Bachchan parivar is contributing, how can Amitabh Bachchan be left out. Big B left a special message for the brave soldiers which Abhishek read out when he was in Kargil. I’m so sure this would have been so much appreciated by the brave soldiers posted in Kargil and Drass!
As a true Indian, i think it’s our duty to respect our country and salute the brave soldiers that protect it from our enemies. I salute all the brave Indian soldiers who are fighting our enemies and protecting our country at all times. God bless you all!
