The employees of a store took to the streets to distribute free sweets to the motorists and the others. Students of a college celebrated the moment by bursting firecrackers and shouting slogans like ‘Hindustan Zindabad’, ‘Pakistan Murdabad’, ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Jai Hind.’

How can the most popular war cry in recent times, ‘How’s the Josh?’ be unused on such a day and the dialogue from ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike', incidentally based on a similar attack against terrorists in retaliation to their attacks, was also proudly used.
