1965 WAR ..... A GLORIOUS VICTORY OF PAKISTAN ....India was unable to withstand the patriotism of Pakistani forces and people and signed a ceasefire agreement with Pakistan after fighting only for 22 days. When the ceasefire came, Pakistan was in occupation of more Indian territory than the enemy had captured in Pakistan. Even Time magazine reported that "despite claims from both sides the awkward fact is Khem Karan is under Pakistan administration". The Globe and Mail, Canada of 27 September said, "The Pakistanis still hold Khem Karan and an area around its six miles wide that extends three miles deep into Indian territory. This is apparently why civil servants in New Delhi were never told the story. They did not want to admit that Pakistan had gained a foothold in the Indian Punjab". India suffered more casualties, the ratio between the two sides was, 1:3 against India. Pakistan captured more prisoners than India. In the Untold Story, Lieutenant General B.M. Kaul stated, "All I will say here is that we failed to defeat Pakistan -a smaller power than us- which we should have done".
