In the India-Pakistan war 1965 I was soldier with an infantry battalion 8 Jammu and Kashmir Rifles (8 JAK RIFLES) of the Indian Army. We advanced about 10 miles deep into Pakistan reached at a village Klawinda, Sialkot District, Pakistan. On our advancement the village was already been vacated thus was easy to occupy. We searched houses found only one human 105 years old blind grandmother, who has been left behind by the family, was lying on a broken charpai (broken bed), she was not able to realize who we were or the war. I think she was unattended there alone over two days - On heard humans around or found the movement she started non-stop Islamic Lyrics “Allah Hoo Akbar” – she was extremely happy noticed someone there - the war itself was Hindu-Muslim on Kashmir. I was the only one Christian soldiers with 8 JAK Rif and the lyrics she was innocently on faith God is good - God is great from the heart of her religion - her faith. She said she was born at the year of certain incident that the other soldiers with me knew which year was it thus found she was 105 years old. I am not from Kashmir or Punjabi or North India to know them. Even I don't know Hindi well enough. I was friendly to her and treated her like my mother or grandmother - but I do not know she understood who I am or who we are. The time was ferocious and crucial, had no time to waste - cease fire doesn't mean no firing at all. She was in a village house many houses together - so side walls were protecting her from injury - dead cows and buffaloes were decaying on the yards. Right away I gave her water from my water bottle - Although cease-fire doesn't mean no ground fire, occasional ground fire was still on, cease fire does not mean firing ended - This very old woman could not even stand - we didn't know what to do with her at that crucial situations - we saved and fed her three days until the cease fire settled into full effect and handed over her to Pakistanis.

(My grand-mother who was living 95 years that time died 10 years later at age 105 years in Kerala State - India - My grandmother Annamma Abraham Pantradiyil house - tomb at Malankara Catholic Church at Oonnukal Omalloor Pathanamthitta Kerala State India - Last time I visited the tomb on September 29, 2016.

Here we can see meeting point of three religions Christian (I am) - Hindu (soldiers with me) - Muslim (the old woman) - and learn God above religions - Even though religious hate seen even from the old woman she still wanted us to DO GOD for her. SAVED HER LIFE NOT ON RELIGION BUT WAS GOD OF ALL PEOPLE.

I have many testimonials I did God but not necessary to write all - the the healing ministry on the net I am doing God Christ - If you have and would like to publish here please email
