Major Siddharth Choudhary (Sid) was born in an Army Family. This was the only life he knew and always wanted to be a part of from a toddler dressed up in Army fatigues for fancy dress competition to a young officer rearing to prove worthy of his uniform. It’s a long exciting journey….a journey on which he makes some wonderful friends and meets Kashish Lamba, the love of his life.
NDA and IMA hone him into an Officer and a Gentleman and life in the Army tests his mettle. He is leading a happy and satisfied life when the Kargil War of 1999 is thrust upon the country. He fights a hero’s battle and emerges victorious. But unlike the reel heroes, the real life heroes are not always invincible. Heroes are actually moulded in glass and shatter into smithereens!
It is an emotional and heart wrenching journey of a son of the soil. Deep abiding love for family and nation always poses a dilemma. It’s a question of choice and where the choice will lead….often breaking the hearts of three or more families in the bargain- while the Nation looks on bemused!
