Look at Defense Forces, Paramilitary Forces families in Uttarakhand First... Then shout WAR!

Written by A bisht

As we know, Uttarakhand sends a lot of soldiers to the Indian Armed Forces. The state has unique distinction of having entire regiments --- Garhwal and Kumaon Regiments --- in its name. There are more than one lakh soldiers currently serving in the defense forces

The connect between Uttarakhand and Indian Armed forces doesn't end there.

According to State Government data,

While there are more than 1.2 lakh ex-servicemen in Uttarakhand, there are 34,675 widows of defense personnel in the State. Then there are Lakhs of family members of those currently serving and ex-service men in Uttarakhand.

In addition, many from Uttarakhand and residents serve in Indian paramilitary forces. Whenever there are causalities in civic, terror, natural disaster, accidents and other unrest in the country; the paramilitary personnel from Uttarakhand also make sacrifice.

So in this light, even when Armed forces job or a paramilitary job is just a career choice --- We cannot afford to wish a war.

We cannot afford to shout --- War is the solution.

With so many defense personnel and paramilitary families in Uttarakhand; it is irresponsible to wish for a war.

We must wish for peace.

If war becomes inevitable then no Government can avoid that. And in that case, even our wish for a peace will not divert a War.

But as people we must NOT shout "lets go to war" from our offices, drawing rooms, classrooms or Tea-stall debates. Let the Govt. decide that.

War must be the last resort, as it wipes out soldiers and people alike, without much distinction.

Young people can understand this article. Even if others can't.

Kashmiri Students studying in Dehradun are OUR CHILDREN! ... Make them FEEL SAFE

Written by A bisht

If I would have been a domicile of some other state, I would have thought twice before writing this article (A Request).

But since I live in Uttarakhand --- A state known for its peace and harmony --- I will write this article because I know majority of Uttarakhand people will see some sense in the request.

And I know they will easily see a sense here because we, the people of Uttarakhand, are not fools.

A large section of people from Uttarakhand go to other states to earn their livelihoods.

A large section of people from Uttarakhand even settle during their live times in other Indian states.

Not only that, a section of Uttarakhand people migrates to other countries to earn their livelihoods.

In simple words --- We surely know the meaning of having a WORLD VIEW and having an all embracing hearts.

We also know what it takes to live outside our comfort zones and still remain productive.

In simple words, Uttarakhand is a land of large-hearted loving people!

Request to make Kashmiri Students studying in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, FEEL SAFE! 

In the days following the #PulwamaAttack on CRPF personnel, the Kashmiri Students studying in various Colleges and educational institutions in Uttarakhand, particularly Dehardun, are being threatened and verbally attacked. These students are living in a sense of constant fear.

Now let one thing be clear here --- No words are sufficient to condemn the #PulwamaAttack. It is heart-wrenching to see one's soldiers been killed this way.


These CHILDREN MAY BE KASHMIRI, but they are no less than our own children living and studying elsewhere.

We can show the world --- Every person or child who comes to Uttarakhand is SAFE IN UTTARAKHAND!

I hope this request will be welcomed by most of us, the People of Uttarakhand.
