WASHINGTON, D. C.â€”To the eternal shame of Indian intelligence, the Pakistani advance went totally undetected until some shepherds tipped off the Indians. Contrary to what the Indian propaganda machine was showing to the world, on emergency basis, their government was silently importing 3,500 caskets for their fallen men. Washington Postâ€™s Ms. Constable caught their farces, â€œThe rebels penetrated nearly four miles inside Indian-held territory there and still control several ridges beyond.â€ Even Indian journalists saw through their propaganda. Arthur Max (Associated Press) asked, â€œHow is it possible that casualties on the Pakistani side were higher [when Pakistanis] had all the advantage of higher ground?â€ He appropriately reasoned, â€œIndians should have suffered higher casualties than the Pakistanis.â€ Indians remember every armed conflict as a glorious victory. Sadly, in a stark contrast, the self-defeating Pakistanis generously concede their victories to be â€˜defeatsâ€™. Victories are there for the Pakistanis to own. All we have to do is have little pride in ourselves first, and victories will standout like the rising sun. Read this fascinating account.
