Tanakpur Reminiscence of a Soldier

Author Name: Dr. Capt. J. Prasad | Format: Paperback | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

The early hours of falling night in the jungle, with its cool breeze laden with

unknown sweet smell was intoxicating. It was a glorious moonlit night…

I had a straight fall from several hundred feet. I squatted to hold the rock but

there were loose stones; the reflection of the sun on the distant snow-covered

peaks was dazzling the eyes…
