Kargil Vijay Diwas: Indian Armed Forces.
Kargil Vijay Diwas:
July 26, this is the date which India will never forget for its ‘victory’ and Pakistan for its ‘defeat’. Capturing the hills of Kargil in the Indian territory.
The enemy soldier sitting at a height of 16 thousand feet was sitting carefree after capturing the hills of Kargil in the Indian territory.
But in front of the enthusiasm, passion and patriotism of the Indian soldiers, neither the 16 thousand feet high hill nor the minus 10 degree mercury stood.
After the war that lasted for almost three months, on July 26, 1999, slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ were echoing with the tricolor flag on the same hills.
Kargil Geography: What is the story behind the name of Kargil?
The name Kargil is a combination of two words Khar and Arkil. Khar means palace and Arkil means center.
In this way, it is the center of palaces, because this area has been in the middle of the areas of many dynasties.
However, many critics say that the word Kargil is derived from the words Gar and Khil. In the local language, Gar means ‘any place’ and Khil means a central place where people can live.
This is also proved by the fact that Kargil is situated at a distance of about 200 kilometers from Srinagar, Skardo, Leh and Padum. With the passage of time, Khar Arkil or Gar Khil came to be known as Kargil.
