Lance Naik Hanumanthappa was the brave heart who was found alive, buried under 25 feet of snow. His survival was no less than a miracle. He was immediately shifted to the Army RR Hospital in Delhi, where even PM Modi paid him a visit, breaking protocol. And there were other opportunists who were advised by authorities to not visit him. Unfortunately, he couldn’t win the battle with life all the way and he left us. None the less, this story not just exposed opportunist politicians but also brought to light the trouble and uncertainty that our soldiers face at the borders.
Here is a video paying tribute to the lone survivor and wishing that his soul rests in peace.
