Soldiers, when committed to a task, can’t compromise. It’s unrelenting devotion to the standards of duty and courage, absolute loyalty to others, not letting the task go until it’s been done.— SHIV NARAYAN (@SHiVNAR98135403) August 23, 2020

In 2019, para-military jawans formed a human shield and held off shooting stones on a snow-covered hill. Their act of courage protected and saved the Amarnath yatris from any harm.
We salute our soldiers for their dedication to help people in distress.
