Kargil
All my love for country, honour, trust for the soldiers and patriotism came together to choke up my throat with emotions. I was overwhelmed with the stories, pictures and explanations about war. But sad with the question on how can a human kill human? Why war? What is gained? No words could explain my feelings during the visit to the memorial. And no answers could overcome my sadness. Feeling proud about our soldiers we sat in our vehicle and traveled few minutes to enter the town- Drass.

The Phuktal monastery is the epitome of monks living high up in the mountains, detached from the rest of the world.
