22nd Kargil Vijay Diwas: Remembering our brave soldiers

Observed on 26th July, the Kargil Vijay Diwas commemorates the success of Operation Vijay. The day aims at paying homage to the raw courage, unmatched valour and sacrifice of our brave soldiers.

Observed on 26th July every year, the Kargil Vijay Diwas commemorates the success of the Indian Armed Forces in Operation Vijay. It was on this day, 22 years ago, that the Indian Armed Forces recaptured all the Indian posts which had been illegally occupied by the Pakistani intruders in key strategic locations of the Kargil-Dras region. The Kargil war witnessed several casualties and loss of life on both sides of the LOC.

The day aims at paying homage to the raw courage, unmatched valour and sacrifice of our brave soldiers. In an attempt to remember the supreme sacrifice made by our soldiers in this conflict, a War Memorial has been constructed at Dras. The memorial known as the “Kargil War Memorial” holds within itself the Amar Jawan Jyoti, the Manoj Pandey Gallery and the Veer Bhoomi.

To date, Operation Vijay continues to be regarded as one of the finest victories in Indian military history. The unwavering strength and ferocity with which the soldiers fought against the enemy strongholds shall forever be remembered.   

The “Shaurya ” of the soldiers of the Indian Armed Forces shall continue to kindle pride and honour within the hearts of future generations for times to come.
