On 26 July, 2019, India is celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Kargil Vijay Divas”. Saluting the supreme sacrifices and valour of the fallen heroes, students of Bhonsala Military School organized a Route March today in Nagpur, to commemorate the victory of the Indian Armed Forces in Operation Vijay against the infiltrating Pakistani troops in Kashmir.
It was on July 26, 1999, when India won the battle over arch-rival Pakistan in the Kargil War and the Indian Army had declared successful culmination of ‘Operation Vijay’, declaring a victory after nearly three-month-long battles on the icy heights of Kargil. India had lost around 500 soldiers in the war.
