Tushar used to talk to his family and friends over the phone but he never disclosed or mentioned any of his missions. As per his father, Tushar used to call twice in a week and ask about his family members, friends and relatives as he was a friendly natured guy. Even though his father sometimes tried to get some information about the missions but he never revealed any and after that they never used to discuss over such topics.
It is a sad fact that Tushar’s elder brother could not make it to the last rites of the martyr.
Tushar’s family says that he always had passion to join Indian Army and thus nobody succeeded in stopping him to achieve his dream. Tushar’s father wanted him to become an IAS officer and he told that Tushar was a true patriot since his childhood so he always had a wish to join forces. Since Tushar was an intelligent kid so whenever his family members try to convince him to choose another career option, he would always had the same answer for them, “I Love my country so I will join Indian Army.”
