The BSF raised in 1965 with the specific purpose of manning the Indian border as the 'First Line of Defence' against infiltration, smuggling and military assault, can hardly be said to comprise an enviable job. For the BSF, and its counterparts in India's neighbouring countries, the border is a live and often unfriendly unstable entity difficult to control and tame. No one knows this better than the hardy and enterprising men and officers of the BSF who continuously keep on guarding the border for the whole year at the Border Out Posts (BOPs) on IB and FDLs on LC, often with just their weapons and wild animals for company. These Posts/Pickets are established in regions which experience extreme weather conditions. These are found in the desert of the Thar where temperatures can touch 50 degrees centigrade during the tropical summer. They are also located in the freezing mountains of the Kashmir region where the winter temperatures can go down to minus 50 degrees centigrade.
