The Kandhar Story

Kanchan Gupta a former PMO official has written a story for The Pioneer and it is bleeding the truth about Dec 25, 1999 when world’s Biggest Democracy became a frenzy of headless chickens.

Could the Kandahar episode have ended any other way? Were an Indian aircraft to be hijacked again, would we respond any differently? Not really. As a nation we do not have the guts to stand up to terrorism. We cannot take hits and suffer casualties. We start counting our dead even before a battle has been won or lost. We make a great show of honouring those who die on the battlefield and lionise brave hearts of history, but we do not want our children to follow in their footsteps.
