People of Kyamsar village in Rajasthan are unhappy about the Agnipath scheme

People of Kyamsar village in Rajasthan are unhappy about the Agnipath Scheme. Drenched in sweat, an aspirant walks out of the Swarn Jayanti Stadium in Rajasthan’s Jhunjhunu after a rigorous physical training session. But he does not look enthusiastic about his work-out. In this remote hamlet in Rajasthan, every family sends its sons to the armed forces. Serving the nation in uniform is all that they seem to know and believe in. Kyamsar has lost 17 of its sons in the line of duty since 1962, the highest number of martyrs from any village in the state's Shekhawati region. Yet the Indian Army remains the favourite destination of young boys from this village. As many as 250 residents of this village are currently serving in the forces. Still, the people of this village remain committed to the armed forces.
