Captain Vikram Batra : A Man That always wanted More .
Today, on what would have been his 42nd birthday We Will Tell You His Heroic Story of Shear Gut’s And Patriotism .
This Is His Story :
The heroic occasion in Captain Batra’s life came on the first day of the month of June, 1999, when his unit was assigned to recapture the most significant peak – Point 5140 which was under the illegal possession of the Pakistani soldiers. It was this mission where Captain Batra had decided to take on his enemies by surprise by attacking them from the rear side.
Despite being fired at by heavy machine guns, Captain Batra and his men managed to destroy two machine gun posts. Captain Batra’s gallantry was such that he single-handedly killed three enemy fighters in a dangerous combat. Regardless of his injuries, Captain Batra regrouped his men to pave the way for Indian soldiers to advance further in the Kargil war which otherwise would have been impossible. After the recapture of Point 5140, Captain Batra’s unit achieved the re-possession of Point 4750 and Point 4875.
This heroism and selflessness made Captain Batra the embodiment of an ideal soldier and sheer fearlessness.
While the media coverage called for felicitations and other celebrations were going on at his home for his achievements, Captain Batra was called for another crucial mission. This mission was to be the one to change the course of the events. Probably Captain Batra was aware of the dangers of his next mission and the bleak chances of his survival.
As he had said in one of the last interviews of his that he hoped the government took good care of the families of the martyrs. Such words from him had made his father feel uneasy and Captain Batra’s expressions had hinted of his uncertainty of survival and return.
In the unfortunate morning of July 7, 1999, Captain Batra and his men were sent on a rescue mission during a counter attack from Pakistan. It was while saving a Subedar – Captain Batra had told him to step aside as he had children and a wife to look after – that he was shot at fatally. He breathed his last breath saying “Jai Mata Di”.
