How is the Josh? Every Indian can say very high nowadays. As per the current situation after Pulwama attack, Josh has to be high. I think this is the most suitable time to pay a visit to our newly constructed national war memorial. which will make you understand how many soldiers have been sacrificed their lives to save us. Since independence, more than 26000 soldiers have been given their lives to protect us and our India. A befitting tribute to our brave heart soldiers. “Every man on this earth will face death later or sooner, what could be the best way than facing death for the nation”.
