This is not a long post. Just a respect for our troops, who are fighting the battle for all that is good and civilised in some of the darkest corners of the World.
This past week, five Indian soldiers for the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) sacrificed their lives in the line of duty, while escorting UN vehicles. More than 160,000 Indian soldiers served in UN missions across the World, in the past 60 years, with more deaths while peacekeeping operations than any other country.
This post is for all those brave soldiers we often forget, who sacrifice their today for our tomorrow…in our borders with China and Pakistan, in the highest battlefield on Earth in Kashmir and Siachen, guarding our seas and our ocean, maintaining the flow of commerce and trade near Somalian coast, Strait of Malacca and South China sea, guarding ships against pirates, in Congo, in Lebanon, in South Sudan.
The flag of Daily World Watch is halfmast.
