Make war a little more real. Some human rights violations may be depicted. (From the official 62 war history: there were several instances of the chinese lining up the surviving and wounded indian soldiers at the outposts and shooting them point blank.)
Yeah true, I have read in the book "Dispatches from Kargil", that one of Pakistani captain's head was hung on tree by some Indian soldier, who was very frustrated. Though this was criticized by many superior officers.
That captain fought very bravely, even after losing all his men and running out of ammunitions he used his revolver to kill at least 5.
War takes away best of us. But, it depends on training and culture, the degree it has affect on us.

This reminds me, how many centuries it will take ourselves to have a women combat pilot.
i Beg your pardon in which book . Till now what ever literature i have read about kargil i had not accounted for any such thing by Indian army as the footage was well covered by Indian media plus many bodies were returned backed to pakis and there is not even a single mentionlke this even by pakistanis and really desprate to know that where the heck those soilders found a tree in that snow capped, Rocky and marshy hills of Kargil to hang a head on it
Book name: Dispatches from Kargil by Srinjoy Chowdhury
If I am not wrong, Kashmir state is one of major supplier of woods (read presence of trees)
P.S. I was anticipating such reply, no surprise. Because I would have done same if I were 7 to 10 year younger in age
Sir well i am very well aware that Kashmir is biggets supplier of woods , but what i pointed out in my post was the hilltops where you don't find these woods those are typical snow ladden Mountain tops where Indian army had to climb and kill and cut the head of the pakistani captain and as per my knowldege goes you don't find trees in hill tops and
I am ex Navy aged 36 voluntery retired from armed forces . i am sorry if i offened who was 46
and well thanks for the name of the book , i will cetainly have a look at that and well i bet that these were pure rumors . Some of fellow friends saying that This is being first media war You could not see everything on TV . Well Barkha dutt did a splendid job to cover at the maximum and it can be presumed that such thing would not have come out of the army "During the war only ", But if this thng would had a bit of reality this could have been shown later and for sure .
and pakistan having bad face and some moral issues with Paki army .well if this would have been true then it would been have a blessing in disguise for then strengthing there claims over Human rights voilation over indian army.
My friend, I was not arguing with you. I think I just mentioned the book's name in my first post, if you chose to read carefully you will find it.
My only point was, to support the other guy's comment that in war such things happens, so Vivek can write about them.
Offcourse, our army is much more disciplined than the Pakis, may be because of cultural difference, where in our culture we have been taught that every life is sacard and a lot must be put into thought before taking it out without any reason in contrast they are fed from child hood that Kafir's must be killed. And Chinese don't even have a god, I can understand how ruthless they can be in violating human rights.
As we already hear in news, the so called world's biggest proponent of human right America is violating human rights in very large number.
The highlight is we are living in Kalyug and no army or nation is Doodh ke Dhoole
even some people from our army too does violate human rights. Off course, sometimes the story are exaggerated to make a case against the entire army.
If I could borrow someone's word "During extreme times, every civilization finds its way to negotiate compromises with its fundamental values."
The more early we learn to self criticize the better we become.
The remark about age I made just because I thought, generally at younger age we chose to overtly neglect the truth to make way to our patriotism.
Moreover, I believe in this forum everybody's has right to say his/her mind openly, that is whole idea, nobody can manipulate anyone's thinking to suit someone's thoughts. Only thing anybody can do is, they can present a rational counter argument.
I am way younger than you. Please don't address me as Sir.
P.S. Now I am going back to read vivek's new installment.
