“Very soon I will be leading my men into battlefield. I know God will be with me, he will protect me, but if God wants me to sacrifice my life here I may not get another time to write to you again.”

What is it like to be on the front lines when you have a family waiting at home? How does it feel to walk towards death a step at a time, everyday fearlessly? Writer, editor and entrepreneur Diksha Dwivedi explores a soldier’s heart by reading letters written by Indian soldiers to their families during the Kargil War. Most of our boys were philosophers when at war. If they weren’t soldiers, they’d probably be poets.
