Support Major Vibhuti Shankar Dhoundiyal Family

Home they brought her warrior dead (Link)

The opening lines of Tennyson’s poem were visually etched in the collective memory of the Nation when images of Nikita Kaul, who had been married to Major Vibhuti Shankar Dhoundiyal just ten months ago bid a tearful farewell to him.

Background

How can anyone forget the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir valley which happened 29 years ago. The exodus was the worst nightmare for the generation that lived through it. The nightmare came alive all over again for 27-year-old Nikita Kaul when her husband Major Vibhuti Dhoundiyal was martyred in the land her family had been driven out of before her birth (Nikita Kaul Interview link)

Nikita and Vibhuti had been married just 10 months ago and were planning to celebrate their anniversary in April 2019 this year. However, this was not meant to be; Major Dhoundiyal, who belonged to the 55 Rashtriya Rifles of the Indian Army, was martyred on 18th Feb 2019 in an army operation at Pulwama, J&K while avenging the cowardly attack on CRPF convoy 4 days earlier. Havaldar Shiv Ram and Sepoys Hari Singh and Ajay Kumar were also martyred in the same operation.

Major Dhoundiyal was the youngest member in the family and is survived by his wife, three elder sisters, mother and his grandmother. Major Dhoundiyal is the second officer from Uttarakhand to be killed in a span of three days.

Goal of this Campaign

The goal of this campaign is to collect a sum amount of INR 25 lakh for Major Dhoundiyal’s family. The amount will be transferred to Major Dhoundiyal’s mother’s account. Milaap charges no fees for this campaign and will absorb the payment gateway fees involved too, as a mark of respect to martyrs in Pulwama attack
