Bringing glory to Lucknow's name, these 4 Kargil martyrs have etched their names in history!

Let's take a moment to honour the strength and courage of these 4 bravehearts, who sacrificed their lives as a tribute to the nation!

Binding together a nation of diverse cultures and heritages, the spirit of India is best represented through the unflinching will and determination of the Indian Armed Forces. Our heroes, the soldiers sacrifice everything to ensure our safety and territorial integrity for the country, completely keeping aside their personal aspirations.

Every time fears of border insecurities and wars have cropped up, these bravehearts have submitted their lives to their motherland, setting unsurpassable examples of national service. This Kargil Vijay Diwas, let's take a moment to honour the strength and courage of 4 valiant sons whose unmatched sacrifices and unparalleled lives are recounted every day in Lucknow!

Captain Manoj Pandey

Param Vir Chakra awardee, Captain Manoj Pandey, is one of the most remembered heroes of the Kargil War. Displaying unexampled grit and fortitude, this soldier was equipped with rare decision-making skills. While he couldn't return back home, he made sure that the country attained victory. There is no better way to fathom the dedication of this lion-hearted individual than his own words- "If death strikes before I prove my blood, I promise, I will kill death."

Rifleman Sunil Jang Mahat

Inducted in the Gurkha Rifles at the young age of sixteen, Rifleman Sunil Jang Mahat showed striking interests during his early days, as a prodigious child. Coming from a family of army men, the courageous individual embodied genes that pulled him towards the national call of duty. At the start of his youth, he laid his life for protecting the nation and left behind an incalculable legacy, despite having a short life!

Subedar Kewlanand Dwivedi ​

Leaving behind a sick wife and two young kids, Subedar Kewlanand Dwivedi forged in the battlefield to set inconceivable standards of service. Born in 1968, he was in the prime of his youth when he gifted his life to the nation, during the Kargil War of 1999. It is said that this warrior fought till his last breath with extraordinary valour, despite being gunned on the chest. Posthumously awarded with the 'Vir Chakra', the soldier scripted his name in the highest records of history!

Major Ritesh Sharma

Commissioned as an officer in 1995, Major Ritesh Sharma quickly took over the role of a Major before the Kargil War. With his company, he played an important role in levelling strong offensive action against the intruders and became one of the soldiers, fortunate enough to recount the story of the war. It was during a search operation after the Kargil War, that the intrepid individual got hit by a bullet and attained martyrdom!

Knock Knock

While we pave our way to the future, it is important to recognise the sacrifices of the past that have seeded our present. Amongst that, the contributions of the Indian Army through the post-independence years, are paramount and undeniably the most crucial building blocks for the nation as a whole. Exceptional symbols of inspiration, all these martyrs and thousands of others like them, motivate us to add glory to the country's name, by excelling in our respective fields of endeavour!
