A lot of literature has been written on the operational details of the Kargil War, while udChalo captures vignettes that involve soldiers experiences that have fallen through the gaps in our memory. Stories of retired and serving men who had fought during that time across land, air and sea have vivid memories of the war that we do not know of but were just as brave.
Commanding Officers who had enthused their teams to conquer the peaks, having witnessed deaths and the struggles of their families, now feel they would never want another war. The stories focus on personal encounters, between where the cold is a constant companion. For the families of these warriors, the pain of losing a loved one is the same as they keep vigil. The only difference is that of pride.
There are so many stories that are untold and that challenge our existence, some make you feel connected in a way that you relate to them while others are just unknown and distant, but draw your attention and are intriguing.
We have captured interesting and unheard behind the scene warrior voices that share their remarkable stories and experiences. Let us walk you through these journeys.
