New Delhi: As 20 Indian soldiers laid down their lives in the line of duty at the Galwan Valley at the India-China border, the nation pays tribute to the courageous men.

Sepoy Kundan Kumar was one of the bravehearts who was martyred saving his motherland.

Now, his father has said that he is proud of his son’s sacrifice. He said that if given a chance, he will send his two grandsons to join the Indian Army as well so that they could serve the nation.
