After a few days, he reappeared in the dreams of one of his sentry colleagues and asked him to make a memorial here on his name. Although Harbhajan Sing is no more, the sentries and guards here believe that his spirit is still alive and therefore treated as a living being. In fact, there have been reports those Chinese soldiers across the border having seen a turbaned sentry doing his rounds at night. Many sentries here believe that Harbhajan comes here every night as his camp bed sheet crumpled every morning and his polished shoes turn muddy by the evening.
