      Kargil Vijay Diwas

      Kargil Vijay Diwas, named after the success of Operation Vijay. On this day,
      26 July 1999, India successfully took command of the high outposts which had
      been lost to Pakistani intruders. The Kargil war was fought for more than 60
      days, ended on 26 July. and resulted in the loss of life on both sides,
      India and Pakistan. Pakistan retreated after international diplomatic
      pressure.

      Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated on 26 July every year in honour of the
      Kargil War's Heroes. This day is celebrated in the Kargil - Dras sector and
      the national capital New Delhi, where the Prime Minister of India, pays
      homage to the soldiers at Amar Jawan Jyothi at India Gate every year.
      Functions are also organized all over the nation to commemorate the
      contribution of the Armed forces.
