The life of a soldier has always been with a lot of sacrifices, compromises, and decision making. Meeting their loved ones after long time and been in terrains and rough weather conditions has always been a toll on one’s mental health. But that's how a soldier earns respect of his nation. Soldier's sacrifices and being on the front makes his countrymen sleep peacefully at night.

Recently, an army jawan missed his wedding amid heavy snowfall in the valley. The soldier has been identified as Suneel who hails from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh. His wedding ceremonies started on Wednesday. The baraat was scheduled to leave for the Daled village of Ladbhadol in Mandi on Thursday. His relatives of both sides were waiting for Suneel, while he was stranded in the valley.

Sadly, the baraat did not moved because Suneel couldn't reach home. Suneel's leave started from January 11 but he remained stranded in Bandipora for days due to heavy snowfall that lasted for over two weeks. Since all the routes were blocked and flight operations were suspended, Suneel couldn't make it to his wedding.

While he was not able to reach, Suneel called the bride's family and explained the situation. Now, Suneel has reached Srinagar safely and is scheduled to fly to Himachal Pradesh soon. The official Twitter account of Chinar Corps took to twitter and shared the details about Suneel's unfortunate wedding miss and wrote it was just another day in the life of a soldier.
