I heard many people talking about "Cargill". I wondered why everyone was so interested in an American food company. The conversations were out of my earshot but I picked up words like India, Pakistan, Clinton, casualty. I couldn't understand how these words could be related to "Cargill".
Someone showed me the news paper but I couldn't see it clearly. A doctor mentioned that "crores had been collected for Cargill". I was puzzled about why Indians were collecting money for an American company.
It was many days before I realised that there was some war going on between India and Pakistan at a place called "Kargil". I don't know why I didn't realise this earlier. There was a T.V. in my room and I remember some people listening to the news sometimes. Guess I had other things on my mind at that time.
