New Delhi: In February this year, 23 Sikh Regiment jawans Gajjan Singh along with Harpreet Kaur took seven rounds of life and death. Both were married with great pomp in Ropar. The picture of the groom carrying the flag of Kisan Union went viral on social media. Two months ago, Gajjan had come home for his brother’s wedding. At that time, he returned to duty after being asked to come back early, returned home on Tuesday, but was draped in the tricolour.
When the demand increased, Harpreet’s hand had not yet come off the thread of marriage. Seeing her husband’s body with stoned eyes, Harpreet was saying this over and over again, ‘Hey get up… Mainnu to dekh le ek wari… On Wednesday, the last farewell was given to Shaheed Gajjan Singh. A large number of people gathered to pay their last respects to their hero. Harpreet’s call of compassion was tearing everyone’s heart. Harpreet was saying again and again that Ghajans should see him once. Gajjan’s father Charan Singh was also unable to handle himself, what will he handle the daughter-in-law? His throat was in tears, he was somehow completing the funeral procession. Since the mother is already ill, her son did not inform her of the martyrdom.
When Gajjan Singh got married in February, he took the flag of farming to his baraat. People say that Gajjan had brought his bride on a tractor. Gajan Singh was one of the five jawans who attained valor while taking on terrorists in Poonch on Monday.
