    I just watched the movie called, 1971. I never knew of this movie, it has a powerful depiction of the condition of our brave hearts in paki prisons.

    This movie hit me in the guts, right where it hurts. If you have any information, clippings, news item, letters of soldiers or common folk who are lodged in paki jails please share.

    Secondly, what is the best course to bring the plight of our people in front of the right people. How can we spread awareness and help in whatever way possible to bring the full extent of this issue into the limelight.

    (This list was tabled in the Lok Sabha in 1979 by Samarendra Kundu, Minister of State of External Affairs, in reply to unstarred question 6803 raised by Amarsingh Pathawa.) Note - Initial list consisted of 40 names which later on expanded to 54.

    "If the cause be just and mind be strong, No force is great, No distance long, If selfless souls with such a strength, Face hazards all, they win at length." THIS is a diary noting in Dr R.S. Suri’s diary, father of Major Ashok Suri, captured in the 1971 war. The Army had declared Major Suri as "Killed in action". DR Suri who ran a Yoga Ashram in New Delhi did not believe it. He was sent a helmet with a bullet hole in it and someone else’s name written on it.
