On the eve of Diwali, several soldiers of the Indian Army celebrated the festival of light near the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch area of Jammu and Kashmir.
The soldiers not only celebrated the spirit of the festival battling the extreme weather but also wished the nation a happy Diwali.
However, the message that one of the soldiers sent out to the people of the nation will surely make every citizen proud.
“Countrymen should celebrate Diwali with utmost joy, we are deployed here and are ready to reply to the enemy,” said a soldier.
The Indian Army is a constant pillar of support to the nation, as it is responsible for protecting the nation throughout the year. Unlike the people who are celebrating the festival of light with their respective families, these soldiers have to engage the enemy at any given point of time.
It is due to this sacrifice by the young members of the armed forces that the country joyously celebrates festivals, away from the deadly conflict that transpires along the border regions.
