Vijay Diwas - 26th July


Vijay Diwas – Salute our real ‘Param Veer’s

Please take a moment today to remember the heroes of Kargil (Operation Vijay). As many of you would know, today is “Kargil Vijay Diwas” – a day to remember the valour and the supreme sacrifice of the men in uniform in Kargil. The conflict in Kargil involved the largest peace-time mobilisation of Indian troops of which 20,000 were believed to have been involved in actual operations in the harsh and inhospitable terrain. The conflict also saw four of our men receive India’s highest military honour – the “Param Vir Chakra” for their valour and act of extraordinary courage during the operations. Two of the four (Lt Manoj Kumar Pandey and Capt Vikram Batra received the honour posthumously).

These men must not be forgotten. The stories of their valour must be told and re-told. As you go about your day today, please spare a thought for the families of these brave hearts. Kindly do take a look at the details of our heroes in the link provided below
