Many people have made individual efforts to use the internet to spread awareness of the sacrifice of Lt. Nawang Kapdia. These sites have a relation with Nawang and are very much part of this web-memorial. If you have a site that you consider a brother site to us, please let us know about it and we will take it up. If you would like us to maintain a brother site we would be delighted to consider it.
Nawang’s closest friend Vikas Sutaria has established www.bhook.com to prevent starvation deaths in India. There are over 7,000 starvation deaths in India everyday. The site uses an innovative approach of sponsorship and visitor participation to achieve this objective.
Major Navneet Vats was from Nawang’s battalion (4/3 Gorkha Rifles). He made the supreme sacrifice fighting terrorists in Kashmir on November 20, 2003 in Srinagar operations. He was the one that conveyed the sad news about Lt. Nawang’s death to the family. His family and mine are very close and it saddened us immensely to hear about his demise.
The Indian army maintains a database of all the martyrs on their official web-site http://indianarmy.nic.in Lt. Nawang’s name is there as well
