The Indian Army’s generosity and hospitality are legendary and were no different in my case. In Jaisalmer, I met Major Beniwal, who offered me my first decent meal and a place to rest for a few hours as I was to head back to Pokhran the same evening. Back at Pokhran that evening, Major Vithun offered me food and shelter. It was an overwhelming feeling when I got a whole day to spend with our brave soldiers. They were very kind and during dinner that night and breakfast next morning, we exchanged stories of our life experiences. I spent some unforgettable moments with those soldiers, and I will be forever grateful to them for their generosity.
