Siachen – The Highest Battle Ground on Earth
Siachen, the highest battle ground on earth where even eagles do not dare to fly, our soldiers live there for months together guarding the motherland. The place where more soldiers die because of adverse climatic conditions rather than bullets and war. We find it hard to spend harsh winter conditions in our cities but our super-heroes do not think twice when nominated for the glacier tenure. They lose weight, appetite, sleep there for we to be safe and sound at our homes. They eat canned food and do not have water to drink. Where an orange turns into hard cricket ball in seconds how can water be in its natural state-liquid. This is not the end. They have a great danger of losing their eyesight,limbs and even life. Place where the risk of avalanches is so high. Many of our brave hearts have lost their lives because of these dreadful snowstorms, avalanches. Some of the bodies could be recovered and some not, even then these angles never step back and have been guarding us for years.
