Operation Meghdoot (13 April 1984)

An ambitious task undertaken by the Indian army, Operation Meghdoot would see the Indian army capture the Siachen glacier which had become a bone of contention between India and Pakistan. During the demarcation of borders between India and Pakistan much thought wasn't given to the Siachen glacier due to the inhospitable conditions there. However several years later, Pakistan claimed that the glacier was a part of its territory and attempted to legitimize its claim on the glacier by issuing mountaineering passes to various individuals and groups. This act provoked India who strongly protested against this move who also had their own claim on the glacier. While all this was bickering was going on both these countries were busy preparing to solidify their claim on the glacier by dispatching troops there. A fully acclimatized Indian contingent composed of a full battalion of the Kumaon regiment and units from the Ladakh Scouts had reached the glacier early thanks to resupply efforts by the IAF (Indian Air Force) and credible intelligence received due to the fact that the Pakistanis had ordered their high altitude gear from the same London manufacturer that supplied the Indians. Major R. S. Sandhu and his soldiers from the Kumaon battalion would be the first to reach the Siachen glacier and dig in with more units coming up after them and taking control of the various key passes (Sia La, Bilafond La, and by 1987 Gyong La) and the commanding heights of Saltoro ridge. Pakistani soldiers would later come in contact with the Indian positions realizing that they had been outpaced by the Indians who had seized over 900 sq km of land. The Pakistanis then took whatever land that remained unoccupied by the Indians; this would include the western slopes and foothills of Saltoro ridge. The temporary camps constructed there by the respective forces were soon converted to more permanent ones and the conflict between the two countries continued to persist until 2003 when a ceasefire was finally declared ending the hostilities in the area.

The Area of Saltoro & Gyong La
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
.Gyong La is a mountain pass situated on Saltoro Ridge southwest of the vast Siachen Glacier, some 20 km (12 mi) directly north of map point NJ9842 which defined the end of the 1972 Line of Control between India and Pakistan. With Pakistan controlling areas just to the west along Chumik Glacier, the immediate Gyong La area has been under pakistan's control since 1948.

It was June 7 in the year 2015 when LANCE NAIK SUDHEESH.B 19 MADRAS left his six months pregnant wife and joined his fellow troops who were deployed at the world’s highest battlefield in Siachen Glacier. Three months later on September 30, 2015, his wife Ms Salu Sudheesh gave birth to a beautiful girl child named Meenakshi.
Like any other father Sudheesh too was very keen and eager to see his daughter and was anxiously waiting for his next leave while serving at world’s highest battlefield. But destination has something else in store. On February 3, 2016 an avalanche struck post held by 19 MADRAS in Siachen in which 10 soldiers attained martyrdom and Lance Naik Sudheesh was one among martyred soldiers.
Born to Smt Pushhavally and Sh Brahmaputhran in village Mundro Island of Kollam district in Kerala was the only child of his parents. In March 2002 he joined Indian Army and married Ms Salu Sudheesh on September 8, 2013. At the time of martyrdom his daughter was only four months only and unfortunately he could never see his daughter.
Wherever LANCE NAIK SUDHEESH.B will be now, but he will be happy and satisfied to see his parents, wife and daughter all staying together in his native village.
Siachen is the world’s highest active battlefield, contested by India and Pakistan since 1984 when India launched Operation Meghdoot. In April 1984, the Indian Army moved in to pre-empt a move by the Pakistan Army to occupy the glacier. Indian Army currently occupies the full Siachen glacier, while Pakistani forces are deployed at the lower heights of Saltoro ridge.
Since the start of Operation Meghdoot, India has lost 33 officers, 54 JCOs and 782 jawans due to climatic conditions, and environmental and other factors at Siachen.
The pride with which we all boost the ownership of world’s highest battle field, the price for it is paid by the family members of these fallen warriors – mostly unsung !!
बस इतना याद रहे एक साथी और भी था। #IndianArmy #SiachenGlacier #WorldHighestBattleField #19MADRAS #Martyrdom

An Old But Gold Memory From Past.
Wish You All Very Happy Diwali.

Do Pray For Our Brave Heroes.

Most underrated village, 2-3 hrs from nubra valley, on the banks of the Shyok River. It was under Pakistan's control until 1971, after which India gained control of this strategic area. It is one of the gateways to the Siachen Glacier.
Don’t miss this place!

The Indian Army’s High Altitude Warfare School (HAWS) is one of the most elite military training centers in the world and is frequented by Special Ops teams from the US, UK and Russia. US Special Forces trained at HAWS before their deployment during the invasion of Afghanistan. 🎖️❄️

"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.

Siachen Glacier "Highest battle ground on earth", India
"Sia" in the Balti language refers to the rose family plant widely dispersed in the region. "Chun" refers to any object found in abundance. Thus the name Siachen refers to a land with an abundance of roses.

(2/2)
Causes:
The Siachen Glacier is the highest battleground on earth between India and Pakistan have
fought since April 13, 1984. Both countries maintain permanent military presence in the region at a height of over 6,000 metres (20,000 ft). More than 2000 soldiers have died in this
inhospitable territory of snow clad Himalayas, mostly due to weather extremes and the natural hazards of mountain warefare.
World’s second longest glacier and Karakoram’ s longest Glacier ‘Siachen’ is held on eastern
Karakoram range in Himalaya. Which is 76km long.
Lance Naik Hanumanthappa has been posthumously awarded the 'Sena Medal'. The medal is awarded for 'individual acts of devotion to the duty or courage as have special significance for the Army'. It is also awarded for acts of bravery and Ln Nk Hanumanthappa's battle for his life
was nothing but courageous. India has lost over 900 brave soldiers to the Siachen glacier, the highest and toughest battlefield
on earth. Lance Naik Hanumanthappa and nine of his colleagues were resting in a prefab shelter at the Sonam Post, when a huge ice wall crashed upon their post. They were buried alive, under 25 feet of tightly compacted snow.
1. Only one man survived. His struggle for life inspired us all Maybe it was luck, maybe an air pocket, maybe it was his fitness and toughness. His fight for life showed India the value of every jawan's life, a rare phenomenon. Rarely has the nation come
together to pray for an army man to live - this is the real 'Siachen Miracle'. J
ust to consider the known facts: * Experts claim 92% completely buried avalanche victims can be revived only if recovered within the first 15 minutes * Only 27% are alive after 35 minute Brain damage starts before death 10 minutes for the average victim.
Yet, Hanumanthappa survived
