Jaya He!

They died in war so we live in peace.
On the 20th of October 1962, the Chinese Army launched an attack on Riznag La pass in NEFA (NorthEast Frontier Area), wiping out the Indian battalion posted there. The brave soldiers fought to the last man and the last round. Today, at Rizang La, a small white memorial marking their valor reads:

For how can men die better,
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of their forefathers
And the temples of their gods...

May we always respect and value the greatest gift bestowed upon us, Freedom. Let’s make INDIA proud of us.

Even worse is the state of the peace keeping forces sent to gorforsaken places for a cause which they dont understand. The memorial is called 'The memorial of an unknown soldier' It reads something like this
'For your tommorow, you asked me to die, If I ever come back will you tell me why'
