Light a Candle for the Galwan Martyrs

June 11, 2021 08:35 IST

On the night of June 15, 2020, 20 brave Indian soldiers were brutally murdered by the Chinese People's Liberation Army in Ladakh's Galwan Valley.

A year has passed since our soldiers made the Supreme Sacrifice for the Motherland.

We salute the Indian Army's Bravehearts and request you, Dear Reader, to light a candle for them in their memory. Their Sacrifice will Never be Forgotten.
