6 Sep 2007We grew up hearing stories about him from our dadi jee (God rest her soul in peace) and we used to love it. All the grand children (ushi, me, ash, lali etc) used to gather around our dadi jees divan and listen to her tell stories. There used to be a holiday on 6th September because of what the day symbolized. There used to be a parade on the border where dada jee took his last breath on 11th September. An army van used to come pick us up on the 6th September to take us to the border. All the kiddies felt like royalty. We sat in VIP seats, drank lemonade, ate sugar coated almonds and walked along the canal. Things have change since then. Some people passed away. Some moved out of country etc.
Anyway. I could rattle on forever. Happy defense day everyone.
