If Narendra Modi didn't remind you of Pervez Musharraf over the last few months,
here's where you can relive the Kargil experience all over again. Surendra Chacha,
a young artist from JNTU, is holding his first major exhibition in acrylic on
canvas that portrays the Kargil conflict and brings it to memory in all its gory
detail. His paintings highlight the sacrifices made by the Indian Army while flushing
out the infiltrators from the strategic heights at Kargil.
The images are bold
and vivid. A blood-smeared hand holding aloft the tricolor, guns booming death
and destruction and a widow lamenting the martyrdom of her husband are some of
the paintings that will be displayed here.
The 30-odd paintings that will be displayed
will tell the story of valor and bravery penned by the Indian Army in 1999. This
3-day exhibition is open for all, and will coincide with Independence Day. Surendra
plans to contribute the proceeds from the sale of his paintings to the family
of jawans from the State who laid down their lives fighting the enemy.
