That which is an adventure for you,
For us it’s daily experience.
For Siachen glacier, the challenge is not the enemy or hostile activities. But the biggest enemy is the weather. The frost biting cold. Exposure to cold winds , however , affects their health adversely .

They could keep a regular surveillance for a very long distance and have an eye on the enemy. They could even keep an eye on other various Indian positions and posts on Sonam and Amar posts , near to the Bilafond La pass. The brave sepoy was giving his duty and doing the surveillance meanwhile by adverse weather the soldiers were martyred. He lost his life and was martyred.

The tradition of the army that is followed by all men and soldiers and sepoy truly endorsed it….
