Hullo to all in Atuldom

Year- 1999. Months- June/ July. Region- Snow-clad Himalayas. Kashmir to be more precise. Kargil- Dras sector to be even more exact. Aim- to control the Siachen Glacier by establishing military outposts on the surrounding mountains ridges. This has often resulted in military skirmishes in the 1980s and tensions only escalated in the 1990s. In an attempt to defuse the situation, both countries signed the Lahore Declaration in February 1999, promising to provide a peaceful and bilateral solution to the Kashmir conflict.

“During the winter of 1998 -1999, some elements of the Pakistani Armed Forces were covertly training and sending Pakistani troops and paramilitary forces, some allegedly in the guise of mujahideen, into territory on the Indian side of the line of control (LOC). The infiltration was code named “Operation Badr.” The aim of the Pakistani incursion was to sever the link between Kashmir and Ladakh and cause Indian forces to withdraw from the Siachen Glacier, thus forcing India to negotiate a settlement of the broader Kashmir dispute. Pakistan also believed that any tension in the region would internationalise the Kashmir issue, helping it to secure a speedy resolution. Yet another goal may have been to boost the morale of the decade-long rebellion in Indian Administered Kashmir by taking a proactive role.
Initially, with little knowledge of the nature or extent of the infiltration, the Indian troops in the area assumed that the infiltrators were jihadis and claimed that they would evict them within a few days. Subsequent discovery of infiltration elsewhere along the LOC, and the difference in tactics employed by the infiltrators, caused the Indian army to realize that the plan of attack was on a much bigger scale. The total area seized by the ingress is generally accepted to between 130 km² – 200 km².

The Government of India responded with Operation Vijay, a mobilisation of 200,000 Indian troops. Finally, war came to an official end on July 26, 1999, thus making it as Kargil Vijay Diwas.

527 soldiers from Indian Armed Forces sacrificed their lives during the war”

This synopsis of the situation of 1999 is courtesy Wikipedia.

Whether made in Hollywood or Bollywood, movie makers have always had a soft corner for war themed movies. If the two world wars are the favourite of Hollywood, Indo-Pak wars have been the preferred theme of many Bollywood movies. Border (1997) had the 1971 war as its base as also Hindustan Ki Kasam (1973) and Upkaar (1967) had featured the 1965 war. LOC Kargil (2003) and Lakshya (2004) based their story on 1999 Kargil conflict. Though war was the basic theme in both the movies, Lakshya focused on the life of a young man who finds direction and meaning to life after joining the Indian Army and the final shot of the movie shows him hoisting the Indian Tri-colour atop Point 5179; a crucial vantage point dominating the army’s main supply line National Highway 1D. LOC Kargil focused on the many army officers, jawaans and their families; and war strategies and actual action too with a few real-life dialogues that were supposedly uttered by the jawaans when on duty etc.

The peak- Point 5179- has its northern side on the Pakistani side of the LOC; western side is a 1000ft vertical rock cliff; and the southern side 3km of empty ground with no cover. The young man (Hrithik Roshan) and a group of 12 officers and soldiers are assigned the mission to scale the 1000ft rock-cliff on the western side and flank the enemy stronghold. The unit sets off on their mission and while moving through a grass field toward the rock cliff, they come under fire. The unit discovers a Pakistani mortar unit in the field and destroys it, but loses their commanding officer and a number of other soldiers. The team’s radios are also destroyed, so they cannot communicate with battalion HQ. Out of the initial 12, only 6 remain. They decide to continue with the mission. They successfully scale the cliff and attack the Pakistani position during the night. Their assault is successful although Hrithik is wounded, and the team loses 3 more men. The next morning, Hrithik limps to the peak, where he plants the Indian flag and fires a flare, signalling that they have captured the peak.
This then is the background of Lakshya whose song I present here today on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas. Lakshya was directed by Farhan Akhtar and starred Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, Boman Irani, Lillette Dubey, Amrish Puri (guest appearance) and Sushant Singh, Om Puri, Raj Zutshi, Sharad Kapoor and Aditya Srivastav playing other important characters. Today’s song is sung by Hariharan, Kunal Ganjawala, Roop Kumar Rathod, Shankar Mahadevan, and Vijay Prakash. It is penned by Javed Akhtar and music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. This is one of my personal favourite movie with all its songs. And today’s song is a lovely marching song. Hope it is liked by all .

Lyrics

kandhon se milte hain kandhe,
kadmon se kadam milte hain
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain
kandhon se milte hain kandhe
kadmo se kadam milte hai
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain

ab toh hamein aage badhte hai rehna
ab toh hamein saathi hai bas itna hi kehna
ab toh hamein aage badhte hai rehna
ab toh hamein saathi hai bas itna hi kehna
ab jo bhi ho
shola banke pathar hai pighlaana
ab jo bhi ho
baadal banke parbat par hai chhaana
kandhon se milte hai kandhe,
kadmon se kadam milte hain
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain
kandhon se milte hain kandhe,
kadmon se kadam milte hai
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain

nikle hain maidan mein
ham jaan hatheli par le kar
ab dekho dam lenge
ham jaake apni manzil par
khatron se hanske khelna
itni toh ham mein himmat hai
mode kalaai maut ki
itni toh ham mein taakat hai
ham sarhadon ke waaste
lohe ki ik deewar hain
ham dushmanon ke waaste
hoshiyaar hai taiyaar hai

ab jo bhi ho
shola banke pathar hai pighlana
ab jo bhi ho
baadal banke parbat par hai chhaana
kandhon se milte hai kandhe,
kadmon se kadam milte hai
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain

josh dil mein jagaate chalo
jeet ke geet gaate chalo
josh dil mein jagaate chalo
jeet ke geet gaate chalo

jeet ki jo tasveer banaane ham nikle hain
apni lahoo se hamko uss mein rang bharna hai
saathi maine apne dil mein
ab ye thhaan liya hai
ya to ab karna hai
ya to ab marna hai
chaahe angaare barse ke bijli gire
tu akela nahin hoga yaara mere
koi mushkil ho ya ho koi ho morcha
saath har mod par honge saathi tere
ab jo bhi ho
shola banke patthar hai pighlaana
ab jo bhi ho
baadal banke parbat par hai chhana
kandhon se milte hain kandhe,
kadmon se kadam milte hain
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain

ik chehra aksar mujhe yaad aata hai
iss dil ko chupke chupke woh tadpaata hai
jab ghar se koi bhi khat aaya hai
kaaghaz ko maine bheega bheega paaya hai
o palkon pe yaadon ke kuchh deep jaise jalte hain
kuchh sapne aise hain
jo saath saath chalte hain
koi sapna naa toote
koi waada naa toote
tum chaaho jise dil se
woh tumse naa roothe
ab jo bhi ho
shola banke patthar hai pighlaana
ab jo bhi ho
baadal banke parbat par hai chhana
kandhon se milte hai kandhe,
kadmon se kadam milte hain
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain

chalta hai jo yeh caarvan,
goonji si hai yeh waadiyaan
hai yeh zameen goonji goonji
yeh aasmaan
goonja goonja
hai yeh hawa goonji goonji
hai yeh sama goonja goonja
har raste ne
har waadi ne
har parbat ne sada di
ham jeetenge
ham jeetenge
ham jeetenge har baazi
kandhon se milte hain kandhe
kadmon se kadam milte hai
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain
kandhon se milte hai kandhe
kadmo se kadam milte hain
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain
kandhon se milte hai kandhe
(goonji si hai)
kadmon se kadam milte hain (yeh waadiyan)
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain
(goonji si hai)
kandhon se milte hain kandhe (yeh waadiyan)
kadmon se kadam milte hain
ham chalte hain jab aise toh
dil dushman ke hilte hain
