    Oh god..when will we learn from the past experiences and teach Pakistan a lesson.My friend who is in the BSF is very frustrated.I can understand his frustration.when I being a civilian am so frustrated about these developments then what about the defence personnel.  We are losing the precious lives of our jawans for so called "diplomatic" reasons.The Indian govt should go ahead and support our jawans.No use of ceasefire when the other side is violating it.
