Q.

Recently some ex-army officials openly refused to accept that India was victorious in Kargil War. Their argument was that Indian gained nothing from that war, either politically or militarily! It gained its own lost ground at the cost of some 580+ soldiers! Do you agree?

WEven presuming it were so is not reclaiming lost ground a victory? Moreover the fact that Nawab Shareef had to beg for special intercession of USA in stopping the war showed that Pak gains in the initial surprise action had been more than neutralised and India's counteroffensive begun to gain necessitating him to scurry to Washington for succour.However, by and large, it is true that the Kargil was exposed our tendency to rest on our outdated laurels.

Yes! Just to hide our own incompetency we proclaim that we have won.
