Azi | 5 years ago | Reply Only if, Indian govt. could use that 100 Millionish indian rupees instead of celebrating their defeat in 1965 war and use it to build proper facilities for public use, its people will earn it far more respect. Dying morale of Indian Army is not Pakistan's doing but the blunders it has been committing for a very long time now. War mongering, hysteria, and imaginary victories wont help it.
