One thought on “Nepal Earthquake: Operation Maitri

  1. This is the first time our people’s effort came to light and international community started understanding what a real help is. Its not sending troops to kill the people around like what US did it in Iraq by saying tons of WMD (till today they couldn’t prove1mg was there!) was hoarded by then ruler. Paid/drunken media barked for yankees and we know what was it now. But they still show some graphics to make people believe what they have done is right. On the contrary our defense force proved once again what they can do it at the time of need. This is one more feather on your cap like Yemen. Excellent work exemplified!!! We salute you!!
