Brigadier Sukhjit Singh is the current Maharaja of Kapurthala. He won the Mahavir Chakra, India's second highest gallantry award, during the 1971 Indo-Pak war when he was commanding a tank battalion on the Shakargarh sector in Punjab. Despite coming under heavy fire from the enemy, he destroyed 8 Pakistani Patton tanks and helped capture 2.

Air Observation Pilots are the only combatants who go into battle unarmed, facing both ground flak and enemy fighter planes. They act as elevated observation posts for engagement of targets not visible to the troops on the ground.

Remembering the greatest and most fearless pilot on his #Birth #Anniversary, CAPTAIN PRADIP KUMAR GOUR, Mahavir Chakra, 660 Air Observation Post (AOP) squadron deployed on the Western Front during 1971 Indo Pak War. Throughout the operations, he flew round-the- clock missions deep inside enemy territory, directing artillery fire and obtaining vital info about the enemy, undeterred by heavy small arms and artillery air burst fire.

On Dec 11, Capt Gour noticed about 11 enemy tanks advancing towards Malidpur with the aim of encircling the Indian posts there. He immediately cautioned the troops about the strength, direction and likely aim of the enemy tank force. He manoeuvred his small unarmed plane in such a manner that all enemy attempts to shoot him down failed. On the other hand, he directed the artillery fire so effectively that 8 of the enemy tanks were knocked out and 2 were badly damaged.

On 14th December 1971, a major operation was planned over Beins River and Capt Gaur had been air borne for over 3 hours, locating and registering targets deep inside enemy territory. He spotted three enemy Sabre jets operating in the area. He decided to continue with the mission in view of its vital nature and carried on with his mission evading the Sabre jets but was eventually shot down.

The young gunner pilot, Captain Gour showed exemplary courage and grit as an Air Op officer in true tradition of ‘Sarvatra Izzat O Iqbal’. He was awarded MVC posthumously. Rest easy sir.

, remembers Captain Pradip Kumar Gour on his "Birth Anniversary" today.

Born on 15 Apr 1945, Capt Gour hailed from Shimla in #HimachalPradesh and belonged to 660 Air Op Sqn of #IndianArmy. Awarded with #MahaVirChakra, Capt Gour was martyred on 14 Dec 1971, during the Indo-Pak war.

In 1971 during the time of Indo- Pak war, Capt Gour was posted to 36 Artillery Brigade operating in Shakargarh sector. As an Air Op Pilot, he was tasked to locate and direct the artillery fire on enemy positions. As per the direction, he led many missions inside the enemy territory facing small arms and artillery fire.
On 11th December 1971, eleven enemy tanks had aimed and encircled the Indian posts at Malidpur. This movement of enemy troops was noticed by Capt Gour and he immediately cautioned the troops about the direction, strength and likely aim of the enemy tank force. He manoeuvred his small unarmed plane in such a manner that all the enemy’s attempts to shoot him down failed. In the meantime, he directed artillery fire completely on the enemy tanks and as a result eight enemy tanks were knocked out and two were badly damaged.
The operation of crossing the Bein River which guards the eastern approach to Shakargarh was launched on 14th December. On that day morning, Captain Gour was airborne for three hours to locate the targets inside the enemy territory. Unfortunately, he was spotted at 1655 hrs, and enemy engaged Sabre jets on his trail ; later three enemy jets closed in on him. Despite the warning signals he continued his task while undertaking manoeuvres to evade the enemy. However, he was surrounded by the enemy jets and was finally shot down. Capt Gour displayed exceptional courage, professional competence and devotion to duty in keeping with the finest tradition of Indian Army.

Know your #GallantryAwards – The #VirChakra is third in precedence in the wartime gallantry awards and comes after the #ParamVirChakra and #MahaVirChakra. It is awarded for acts of gallantry in the presence of the enemy, whether on land or at sea or in the air

The circular silver medal is 1-3/8 inch in diameter. On the front side, there is a five-pointed star, with the chakra in the center, and, on it, the domed gilded state emblem. The decoration is almost always named and dated on the edge. On the reverse, #VirChakra is written in Hindi and in English separated by lotus flowers. The ribbon is 32 mm, half dark blue and half orange-saffron. Dark blue 16 mm, saffron 16 mm.

The #VirChakra was established by the #PresidentofIndia on 26 January 1950 (with effect from 15 August 1947). The statutes were amended on 12 January 1952 to readjust the order of wearing as new decorations were established.

The #VirChakra was first awarded in 1947 to Subedar Nadikerianda Bheemaiah and 2/Lt R Kanikasamy for their role in the #KashmirWar. Till date, a total of 1317 Vir Chakra’s have been awarded

Captain Neikezhakou Kenguruse from 2nd rajputana rifles also known as " Nimbu " , who hails from Nagaland was part of ‘Operation Vijay’ during the Kargil war.He volunteered in a commando mission that involves scaling a cliff and attacking the enemy’s machine gun bunkers on tolloling.
At a height of 16,000 feet.Suddenly he saw that his shoes were losing grip and he can't able to climb up .So he took off his shoes and charged barefoot .That it was -10 degree Celsius made things extremely bad.But not enough to mar the Captain’s progress.By the time a bullet hit his body, he has done more than enough to clear the way for his platoon to end what he began.
