Dr. Nandita Jamwal Kakkar was born in Oct 1971. Nandita does not remember seeing her father, Capt Dalgir Singh Jamwal. For years, her mother did not tell her that her father was a Prisoner of War.

"I still remember the day when my mother told me that my father was a prisoner in Pakistan. I was about nine or 10 years old. After that I spent many days planning escape routes for my father - planning how my mother and I would go to Pakistan and somehow bring my father home," said Nandita.
