In India Kargil Vijay Diwas celebrated on 26th July every year. It was on this very day when India successfully won the Kargil War and took control back over the higher outposts. 

India is celebrating the 22nd anniversary of the ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ today. Indian Army saluted the valour and grit of the soldiers through a video tribute. The Indian armed forces had defeated Pakistan on July 26, 1999. Since then, the day is celebrated as ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ to rekindle the pride and valour of the soldiers who took part in Operation Vijay. The day marks the victory of Indian soldiers in recapturing the mountain heights that were occupied by the Pakistani Army on July 26, 1999, known as the Kargil War. 

The war broke out when Pakistan took over the outposts and deliberately going against the bilateral understanding that was reached at between the two nations. 

The Kargil War lasted for 60 days ended on July 26, 1999, when India bounced back by taking control over what was rightfully ours. 22 years later, we still remember the soldiers who laid their lives for the country. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten. 

Therefore, the Bravehearts are remembered on this day and every other day. 

As many as 527 soldiers from the Indian Armed Forces lost their lives during the war. They valiantly fought for the nation, and the Kargil Vijay Diwas not only embarks upon India’s win but also pays homage to the fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives to make ‘Operation Vijay’ a success. Kargil War saw the Indian Army seizing back control of key outposts in Ladakh after ousting Pakistani troops from the region.
