We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey - Kenji Miyazawa background

ABOUT THE PICTURE

14 years ago Major Singh was hit by an enemy mortar while undertaking an attack mission as part of Op Vijay, during the Kargil War. He had splinters all over his body, damaging his liver, ribs, elbow, intestine, ears, bladder, thighs and legs. He was among the 'brought dead' category and was being taken to the mortuary. However a doctor observed some movements and the Major survived. But three days later, his right leg had to be amputated. He is now India's first 'Blade Runner'.
