"I'll either come back after raising the Indian flag in victory or return wrapped in it, but I will come for sure." These were the last words from the Sher Shah of the Indian Army, Late Captain Vikram Batra.

On July 7, 1999, Captain Vikram Batra sacrificed his life fighting Pakistani forces during the Kargil War.

He was given the highest wartime gallantry award Param Vir Chakra posthumously. Captain Batra’s famous words - 'Yeh Dil Maange More..' reverberate even today.

On his death anniversary, we remember the 'Sher Shah' of the Indian Army.
