The story of the city of Leh which has not been able to complete its sleep for three nights amid the sound of fighter jet flying in the air. 


 Since the clash between the Indian and Chinese military on the night of August 29, mobile phones have been closed in the villages of the border areas, just to give news, community satellite phones

 If our army does not stop our shepherds, then China is not able to capture so much inside, this solution to the occupation of China tells almost every Ladakh
 For the first time in history, the army has laid 30 km of barbed wire, which was till now without border, for the first time in three-four days.
 'We could not sleep all night yesterday. Waking up in the morning and drinking tea, my mother also kept saying that I do not know what is going on the border there. All night only the sound of fighter jet kept coming. She is afraid that Kargil and the situation of 1962 will not return again. ”Nasreen, the manager of a hotel in Leh, is clearly aware of the stress behind her mask. She says 'First Corona and now this war-like situation with China'. She starts thinking for a while and then asks, "If war happens, will Leh City also be affected?"
 Nasreen is not the only one who is not able to sleep from the sounds of fighter jets flying in the sky of Leh for the last three days. Yasin, who is chatting with his friends in Leh market, is also doing the same thing. And for the last 6 months there is also the same thing of taxi and local bus occupants sitting empty without a tourist for the last 6 months. It is as if the entire city of Leh has not been able to complete its sleep for the last three days.

 It was only at Kushok Bakula Rinpoche Airport in Leh that the roar of the big transport aircraft, called Gajraj of the Air Force, realized that everything was not right on the border 200 km from there. More than 6 IL30 and C17 Globemasters had taken takeoff and landing from Leh's Airforce airfield by the time Kovid's RT-PCR test was carried out, his reports arrived and the parking lot.
 At the adjacent Civilian Airport, where half-empty aircraft and one or two white aircrafts were seen standing, the Airforce airport across the wall was as if it were lined with olive green. Far away, only the transport aircraft of the Air Force and the soldiers and luggage that landed from them were visible.
 Two days ago, when the bullet fired in the Chushul area on the Indo-China border, its impact began to feel clear up to Leh, 200 km away. Then whether it is due to the movement of the army, fighter jets flying in the sky of Leh or the people here. Tashi was 12 years old when the 1962 war took place. It is said that we had helped our Baba to build a bunker. We were afraid that when the firing started, where would we hide. '
 The picture is of the bus stand in Leh. All these buses have been standing in the stand for the last 6 months, no tourists are coming here.

 Tashi's Baba even went to Kargil as a porter to help the army. By the way, in the pictures which have been coming from Chushul area for the last one week, the villagers are seen working as porter for the army. He has a smile on his face, several kilos of luggage on his back and steps on the barren ground. These include women and Buddhist monks. Tashi says, that China is very much occupied. We do not even know, because neither the army allows us to go there, nor the shepherds who used to take their animals to the areas of China earlier.
 Irresistible, careless, these shepherds used to go there for 2-3 years and then on this borderless border we and our areas of China slipped a few kilometers here and there. They feel that if our army does not stop our shepherds, then China would not have been able to capture so much inside. Almost every Ladakh person tells this solution to the Chinese occupation.



 The border which was hitherto without boundary has been barred for the first time three-four days ago. For the first time in history, the Indian Army has barbed wire to its territory. These have been cordoned off in an area of ​​about 30 km from Rezangla to Helmet Top. In this area, the army has also collected tanks and ammunition.

 In Chushul, all the villages are a little away from the border, mobile phones have been closed since the clash between the two forces on the night of 29 August. Well, to give news is just a community satellite phone, which is closed half the time and there is a long queue of users using it the rest of the time.
 There are also long lines of army vehicles that are going from Leh Highway towards China border. And also those trucks that are in a hurry to bring essential goods via Manali and Zojila. Both of these routes may be closed by the end of next month. Then in the snowfall there will be an option to carry goods only by air. This time the haste to collect the goods is a bit much. The reason is the circumstances of the war on the outskirts.
 Sering has retired from IB. Most of the time of the job has been spent in border areas like Daulat Beg Oldi. Says war with China is not easy. It is not Pakistan. Pakistani soldiers are ready to shoot on sight, while Chinese soldiers come. Shake hands. Let's light a fire. Light throws at our soldiers. And tell that we are there.

 China is making its presence felt much more these days. For the past one week, there have been voices of firing from across the side. China is doing firing exercises in its areas. Deployment of fighter aircraft as well. And he is also posting videos of his exercises on social media.
 The tension of this Chinese action has reached even those villages which are closest to the China border. This is the reason why government officials and executive council leaders go to villages and meet people. The reason for reaching Chushul is also the elections that are to be held next month. The meeting of these leaders may be artificial, but the village elders are playing an important role in reducing the tension during this time of trouble. This elderly witness is of the 1962 war. Although the preparations for the war are complete, the army has not yet given any order like evacuating the village. When these rumors started going to these villages for two days, these same elders advised people to be patient.
