Snow and Below.


“One hundred and thirty-nine brave Pakistanis, 124 of whom were members of the Pakistani army, lie buried under 80 feet of snow on the Siachen Glacier after an avalanche crashed down on a battalion headquarters at Gyari near Skardu on Saturday. The massive avalanche which hit before dawn while the victims were sleeping was 1,000 metres long and 25 metres wide.”

They tell me that nature is a friend.

They also say that it has its wrath.

Buried under all that snow are not just one hundred thirty nine men.

They are one hundred thirty nine souls.

One hundred thirty nine dreams. Which are bureied under all that snow.

It was white…pure white and freezing. And then all the lights went off.

No matter which religion or culture you belong to, take a moment to pray for not just these men. But all those who have lost tjeir lives to all the wars going on. All those who might lose hope.

Because Being Human..that is what connects us all.

  1. i have been to Giyari, where this happened. it was serene, white, silent, and waiting. waited over 20 years to be precise to come crashing down from the mountain to bury the sleeping soldiers. men defending us Pakistani’s. and finally paid the supreme sacrifice.
    i do not know how many will be found under the snow and the debris from the mountains, and those who are will be barely recognizable. Allah bless them. May His wisdom be known to the survivors, may they have peace in their hearts. aamin
