Every year, our family waits very fondly for December 11. The reason is very special and close our hearts. This is the day when we get together and visit BSF unit based at Mamdhot, Ferozpur to salute our great Hero, who sacrificed his living abode for this great nation. This was way back in the year of 1971, Indo-Pak war, when my great uncle, R.K. Wadhwa, sacrificed his life whilst fighting against Pakistan to capture BOP Rajamohtam. For this commendable and extreme courage, he was awarded with the highest gallantry award of Mahavir Chakra.
It was more special to us as Vedanshi, the third generation, also visited the border noticing the incomparable courage of our great soldiers. She was excited and watched the flag ceremony at the Hussaniwala border in Ferozpur.
