A soldier's diary: Kargil, the inside story

A soldier's diary: Kargil, the inside story

No conflict since the 1962 war against China has had as deep an impact on the nation's psyche as the 1999 war in Kargil. The reasons for this are easy to discover.

India and Indians felt deeply betrayed by these two wars. In 1962 the Chinese destroyed Jawaharlal Nehru's carefully constructed notions of Hindi-Chini bhai bhai and in 1999 Pakistan punctured Atal Bihari Vajpayee's historic bus journey to Lahore that had led to hopes of peace. Not only was India surprised by both wars, but the army was poorly-equipped to fight them. Hence the high casualties and the consequent outpouring of public emotion.
