The civilians of any country are able to enjoy their lives and time with their family and friends only because a section of their countrymen guard them against attacks from known and unknown enemies. These brave men of the Armed Forces put their lives on line so that the civilians can go about their normal lives.

It’s a pity, thus, that sections of the Indian media do not think its news enough to remember those who laid their lives in the line of duty during the Kargil War. But, happily, there is a small segment of cricketers who think otherwise. On Sunday, on Kargil Vijay Diwas, Sachin Tendulkar, Ajinkya Rahane and Anil Kumble were thoughtful enough to remember the martyrs of India’s 1999 War against Pakistan called Operation Vijay.
