“Papa, did you read the quote of Captain Vikram Batra?” Elder son anxiously asked him.
“What is so special about it?” He asked his son.

“Either I will come back after hoisting the tricolor, or
I will come back wrapped in it,
but I will be back for sure.”
– Capt. Vikram Batra.
He looked at his son. His face was still illuminating!!
Captain Vikram Batra, PVC (9 September 1974 – 7 July 1999) was an officer of the Indian Army, posthumously awarded with the Param Vir Chakra, India’s highest and most prestigious award for valour, for his actions during the 1999 Kargil War in Kashmir between India and Pakistan. He led one of the toughest operations in mountain warfare in Indian history. He was often referred to as ‘’Sher Shah’’ (“Lion King”) in the intercepted messages of the Pakistan Army.
