Mission Siachen


‘Mission Siachen’ by youth

Bangalore: It is a befitting way to tell the soldiers guarding our borders in difficult conditions that we care.

And for that reason Sankalp India Foundation, a voluntary youth organisation have decided to launch “Mission Siachen,” through which messages would be sent to soldiers posted at the Siachen in the eastern Karakoram range of the Himalayas.

“We want to show them that people in our country really care for the soldiers. We will send postcards which will be signed by people and we want to plan it in such a way that each soldier will receive a postcard,” said Maya and Jayanti, students of M.S. MSRIT and volunteers with Sankalp India. As part of this, Sankalp India Foundation, is organising signature campaigns in Garuda Mall and Big Bazaar, Hebbal on BEL Ring Road between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. “We want people to come and sign the postcards and show their solidarity,” the girls said.

Postcard campaign

Siachen Glacier? Yes, the world’s highest battlefield is where our men-in-arms stand guard.

If you want to show you care and express your solidarity with our soldiers, join Sankalp India Foundation in ‘Mission Siachen’ by sending them a token of love and appreciation on Republic Day.

The foundation has prepared hand made postcards where you can pen a message of goodwill or just sign as a goodwill gesture and send your personalised message for the Indian Army.

These postcards will be delivered to about 4000 soldiers posted at the glacier on January 26.

Volunteers of the foundation will be at Garuda Mall, Forum and Big Bazaar (Hebbal) from 1 to 6 pm on December 29 handing out the postcards.


Siachen soldiers hailed

BANGALORE: Ever wondered how to thank the gutsy soldiers who guard the 80 mile long Siachen glacier on the eastern Karakoram range in the Himalayas.

These soldiers brave the temperature which is usually around -50’ Celsius, sleep in ice caves and breathe air so rare that makes it difficult to even survive. If you wish to say your heartfelt thanks to them, then here is your chance.

Sankalp India Foundation, a registered voluntary youth organisation is organising a massive public campaign to thank the soldiers.

They are planning to send some hand made post cards with personalised messages to each of the estimated 4000 soldiers. Sankalp is organising this `Mission Siachen’ campaign on December 29 at the Garuda Mall near MG Road and Big Bazaar on the Hebbal-BEL ring road.
