Jawan meets his 'miracle daughter'

Jawan meets his 'miracle daughter'

It was later during the day that the Army got to know from a local that her mother Tsering Dolma also survived the ordeal and was being treated at a makeshift hospital set-up by the ITBP.

Deldan was reunited with her mother late in the night. Tsering Dolma was not able to speak and it was only on Saturday afternoon that she told the doctors that her husband is an Army jawan named Tsering Dorjey posted in Siachen.

Messages were quickly transmitted and within time, Dorjey was given the message that all is well with his family.

“When I heard about the news, I was worried about my family as they stayed in Choglamsar which is the worst affected. After being told that they are in the Army hospital, all I wanted was to get back and hold my girl in my arms,” Dorjey said.

Sitting in the hospital besides his wife and holding Deldan in his lap, Dorjay said, “My love for the Army has increased since they saved my family at a time when I could not.”
