A Martyr to be remembered forever

The Kargil war will always remain to be an epitome of great sacrifices made by our brave Indian soldiers who valiantly fought and proved their sheer might against the enemy of the nation. One of the greatest combating souls of the fierce war was Captain Manoj Kumar Pandey who lost fighting for the country at the age of 24. Today, he would have turned 41. Born to a small time businessman in Lucknow, he had always aspired to serve for the nation. Since childhood, he was a good sportsman that later turned out to be of immense help for Manoj Kumar.


Bravery until the last breath

He took charge of many operations during the Kargil war to recapture peaks of India from the hands of the enemy. He led the men and fought fiercely to drive back the intruders at Batalik Sector. He also climbed the impenetrable Jubar top — inaccessible through the plain land, which became an important location for the Pakistani. It was at the Jubar top, he led the team and attacked enemy bunkers, but while doing so, he sustained bullet injuries on his shoulders and legs. He continued attacking the bunkers and destroyed the last bunker with a grenade. He fought relentlessly till his last breath.


Badge of honour

He was conferred the Param Vir Chakra posthumously for his fight had paved the way for India’s valour. A gallery in the Kargil War Museum at Drass is named after the brave Manoj Kumar Pandey and the National Defence Academy named the science block as Manoj Pandey Block in memory of the dark knight of Kargil war.

The Logical Indian salutes the bravery exhibited by Capt Manoj Kumar Pandey. We will always remember that it was your and many others courage and sacrifice that has kept us safe and secure till date.
