Kargil Divas at Pune by Ms Vinita
While the government decided to ignore the supreme sacrifice of our soldiers and officers of the Indian Armed Forces on the occassion of the 10th anniversary of the Kargil War - with even Pratibha Patil, President of India and supreme commander of the Indian Armed Forces not having time to pay her homage to the war martyrs, we in Pune commemorated the historic day with utmost dignity and solemnity. More than 400 citizens were present on this citizen initiative undertaken by the Intelligent Pune weekly tabloid and members of the Kargil Action Committee. Pl wait for a few seconds for the photopgraphs to be visible. Also enclosed in attachemnt are photo captions as i could not attach them to the pics but they are in order of the pics.
I have also enclosed the cover story which we are carrying in Intelligent Pune of July 31-Aug 4 issue. Pl see it online from tommorow on www.intelligentpune.org as this issue will be uploaded tommorow.
