How the Indian press reports the death of 6 soldiers in the Siachen Glacier

Six soldiers are dead and one is missing in the Siachen Glacier. A lonely death in the highest battlefield of the world.
Unfortunately they do not find place in the Indian newspapers' front pages. On its front page, The Times of India today (17Dec2012) reports the death of a businessman while attempting to board a train. May his soul rest in peace. The death of the valorous finds a terse mention deep inside the pages of  TOI. May the valiants' souls rest in peace.
Do we really care for our soldiers? Do we even know what they are going through during their lonely vigil in the Siachen Glacier.
What a shame this is.
