Story

‘For your tomorrow, we gave our today’…said the martyrs who gave their life for the honor of our nation & left behind their families.

Dec 2021 marks 50 years of the 1971 Indo Pak War which ended with the Pakistan Armed Forces surrendering to India. Battle of Longewala was a fierce battle fought during this war where the Pakistani Army was decimated by a synergized effort of the Indian Army & Indian Air Force. While the nation celebrates this joyous occasion, let us spare a thought for our brethren at arms, who sacrificed their lives for the tricolor in that battle.

I’m Nikhil Laishram, serving in the Indian Army for 8 years & an ultra-marathoner by passion. To commemorate the golden jubilee of our victory at Longewala & honour our martyrs from 168 Field Regiment (Longewala) & 1853 Light Battery, who brought us glory in the battle, I’ll be running a 100 mile (160 km) ultra marathon on 18 Dec 21 from Jaisalmer to Longewala.

Please join me in my endeavor to express our gratitude to the families of these martyrs.

All your donations will go to the families of martyrs of these two valiant regiments of Indian Artillery.

Lest we forget!

Jai Hind!
