‘Ye Diwali Jawano Ke Naam’ – a social media campaign

Next week, the entire country will be immersed in celebrations of Diwali, the day good triumphs over evil. Diya’s will be lit, new clothes will worn, sweets will be distributed, as people enjoy the festival of lights. But there will be a few homes in India, where the lights may not flicker, where fire-crackers may not burst, where the glee of Diwali may not reach. These are the homes of our brave martyrs, the soldiers who lost their lives defending our country. May it be at Uri, or any other terror attack.

India is facing constant threat from terrorists sponsored and aided by Pakistan. We have hit back, but in the exchange of gun-fire, it is our brave soldiers who lose their lives. They are not only soldiers of the army, but they are somebody’s brothers, somebody’s husbands, somebody’s sons. Nothing in this world can make good the sacrifice of the families of the Jawans.

Subsequent to Anshul’s original tweet on 21st October, IndiaTV too has started a similar campaign.
