Indian Army’s Tibetan braveheart who lost his life along LAC laid to rest

Amid chants of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Jai Tibet’, Subedar Nyima Tenzin, who died on August 30 in a landmine blast during an operation on the south bank of Pangong Tso lake, was laid to rest as hundreds from the Tibetan community gathered to bid farewell to the braveheart in Leh on Monday.

‘He is a hero not just to the Tibetans but all of India’ was the sentiment expressed by the Tibetan community. “He lived for the love of Tibet and died for the love of India,” read a poster.

Proud of their Tibetan and Indian identities, those attending the funeral hummed songs of Tibetan nationalism and also the national anthem of India.

As the Army truck with Nyima Tenzin’s mortal remains left his house in Leh, many joined in the funeral procession on their bikes and vehicles. Waving the tricolour and the Tibetan flag, several others walked to the cremation site.
