Description
Preface

The Armed Forces of independent India have fought four major wars. Many soldiers have shed their blood to defend the honour of the Motherland. Some even laid down their lives in foreign lands in UN peace-keeping operations. The History Division undertook the writing of this book to immortalise their deeds of bravery. It is hoped that these stories would serve as an inspiring force for future generations.

I am grateful to the three Services Headquarters, Regimental Centres, awardees and their relatives for providing us the necessary information about the brave soldiers covered in this book. Regretfully, in some cases it has not been possible to use all the information supplied to us for lack of space. It is requested that inaccuracies, if any, found in the stories by the readers may kindly be brought to the notice of the Director, History Division, for correction.

The compilation of this book was first undertaken by Dr. B.C. Chakravorty, Narrator. Subsequently, in the light of additional information collected from various sources it was revised and updated by Dr. D.C. Verma, Dy. Director and myself. Shri Y.C. Bhargava, RA, rendered valuable assistance by way of collecting necessary information. Two more sections viz. 'The Glorious Saga of the Indian Army' and 'Medals and Decorations of India' have been added to the volume to make it more useful.

Shri G.B. Singh, Dy. Director, Shri Jasvinder Singh, SRO, Shri T.R. Gulati, SRO, Shri Om Shankar, Asstt Director (Heraldry) and Shri T.R. Tandon, RA also helped me in various measures. Shri Sudhir Sharma, Shri N.K. Sagar, and Smt. Chitra Santhanam, typed the manuscript. I am indebted to these colleagues for their valuable cooperation.

I am indeed grateful to the Ministry of Defence for the help and encouragement extended to me in completing this task. However, for statement of facts and expression of views the Editor alone is responsible.

In the end I would like to record my grateful thanks to M/s. Allied Publishers who undertook the challenging task of publishing this book. They have done a marvellous job indeed.

Testimonials

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
