"I got commissioned here during the Kargil War. And I was lucky enough to command a unit here." "Two tenures! So do you love Siachen or hate it?" I ask, knowing it definitely has to be either one. "Siachen is nice. Only the weather is a little bit problematic." He humbly replies.
What many do not know is the 'little problematic' weather is in reality feets of snow, minus 50 degrees temperature, avalanches and lethal crevases and snowstorms, frost bites, hypothermia, cardiac arrests and severe psychiatric disorders even the smallest tenures here can cause, to which he might have lost many of his comrades to.
Trust a soldier to consider no challenge bigger than his goal - to protect his country.
