    The Param Vir Chakra India s Greatest Military honour Soldiers don t die when bullets pierce their hearts and heads through their olive green shirts and woolen balaclavas They don t die when they fall before an enemy onslaught, or even when they get buried in trenches, staining the earth with their war crimson blood It is only when we forget their acts of bravery that soldiers die UnknownThe Brave, Param Vir Chakra stories, is the bone chilling tales of those 21 bravest of the brave soldiers of India who showed the extreme courage, leadership and valour against the enemy and died on the battlefield for the sake of their motherland.In a country of 1.3 billion people majority of us are aware about Gandhjji, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Abul kalam Azad and their contribution for India but at the same time how many of us knows about the people like Major Somnath Sharma, Abdul Hamid, Albert Ekka, Nirmal Jit Singh Sekhon, Manoj Kumar Pandey and Vikram Batra.So, here the important questions arises that who are these people which is mentioned above What is Param Vir Chakra What is the difference between the Indian soldiers and Indian Politicians The people mentioned above are the brave sons of mother India who fought against the enemy and became Immortal.Param Vir Chakra PVC is India s highest gallantry award It is awarded to the bravest of the brave.Major Somnath Sharma was the first person who received the Independent India s First Param Vir Chakra PVC but posthumously He showed his extraordinary leadership skills in the first Indo Pak war of 1947 48.Abdul hamid won the PVC Posthumously during the second Indo Pak war of 1965 He blew up the enemy tanks single handedly without thinking twice about his personal safety.Albert Ekka won the PVC Posthumously during the 1971 liberation of bangladesh war.Nirmal Jit Singh Sekhon was awarded the PVC Posthumously for his bravery during the 1971 Indo Pak war And he remains the only person in the Indian Air Force who received the PVC.Manoj Kumar Pandey, the 24 year old young man received the PVC Posthumously for his valour during the 1999 kargil war.And finally the extraordinary and courageous man who during the Kargil war said to his senior officer Ye Dil Mange More The 24 year old lad , Captain Vikram Batra, who was awarded the PVC Posthumously for his leadership and valour during the 1999 kargil war.The People like Somnath Sharma, Abdul Hamid, Albert Ekka, Nirmal Jit Singh Sekhon, Manoj Kumar Pandey and Vikram Batra they are the real heroes of India not the fake, immoral and hypocrite Bollywood stars.And one of the major difference between the Indian soldiers and Indian Politicians is that the former is always ready to die for his motherland and the latter is always in a hurry to loot his nation.The author of this book has really done a great job by writing about the true heroes of India This book deserves to be read by everyone in India.I will end with these lines of Immortal Captain Vikram Batra Either, I will hoist the tricolour in victory or I ll come back wrapped in it My Ratings 5 5 I hope you like this, Thanks for reading, Jai Hind.

    Please steal some moments from your life and must read The Brave by Rachna Bisht This book is all about those superheroes who sacrificed their lives just to make our life secure It needs guts to read these heart shocking stories of soldiers without pauses pauses filled with goosebumps. I felt pride..Into my heart when I turning pages. One by one I just Fell in love with their determination..So inspiring Even in his death, Vikram Batra had kept the promise he had made to a friend casually over a cup of tea at Neugal Caf in Palampur, on his last visit home When his friend had cautioned him to be careful in the war, Batra had replied Either, I will hoist the Tricolour in victory or I ll come back wrapped in it Highly Recommended

    The current book in question fills, in my humble opinion, a major gap in our literature a mainstream book on the recipients of the Paramvir Chakra, their deeds, their bravery and their life story This is a stunning but completely true fact at least insofar as my experience in concerned that we do not know much beyond the names of a few of these awesome brave men who did the impossible or rather, who made the impossible possible This book is about them, about their lives and their deeds Who was Flying Officer Nirmaljit Singh Sekhon What exactly did he do Who was Captain Vikram Batra Just what did he do that was so awesome Who was Lieutenant Manoj Pandey What were his precise actions, his exact deeds that led to his PVC How did he do it Who was Major Somnath Sharma Lieutenant Colonel Tarapore 2nd Lieutenant Arun Khetrapal Naik Jadunath Singh Subedar Joginder Singh Havaldar Abdul Hamid Lance Naik Albert Ekka Read about how one man led 90 against a 900 strong enemy and won Read about how one man defeated 35 enemy soldiers Read about how a brave soldier, stomach ripped open, kept fighting Read about how a single unit, without artillery support, armed with Rifles, held off an enemy armed with Machine Guns, Artillery and Mortar Read about how a young man refused to be evacuated from a burning tank, faced certain death, but did not flinch from his duty Read all this and , and realise that what these people not just the PVC winners but also the entire Indian Armed Forces did, and have done in every war, every exchange of fire was something special, something extraordinary, something superhuman something that has no logical explanation There can be no other explanation for some of the absolutely unbelievable stories that leap out of the book it is simply beyond human comprehension these weren t aren t normal they are special Men India needed alive but Men who, by choice, laid their lives, for our India

    I got this gift from one of my friend and must thank him for this wonderful book The book paints a vivid portrait of 21 courageous soldiers and awardees of the Param Vir Chakra PVC , the nation s highest award for gallantry a medal that even the Chief of Army Staff gets up to salute, even if it hangs on the shirtfront of a foot soldier Apart from narrating valiant tales from the battlefield, the book also traces the lives of these extraordinary men which really makes it very touching Divided into sections like the Indo Pak war 1947 48 , Congo 1961 , the Sino Indian war 1962 , the second and third Indo Pak wars 1965, 1971 , Siachen 1987 , Operation Pawan 1987 90 and the Kargil war 1999 , the book is an inspiring read, replete with anecdotes.The book reinforces the ordinariness of these men s lives even in extraordinary times and keeps the reader engrossed, beyond the fight till the last bullet, the last man and long after the last page I just borrowed this phrase from an event of 1962, Major Shaitan Singh and his men, grossly outnumbered, were brutally massacred by the Chinese, and died following the orders, You will fight till the last man and the last bullet.

    I loved the stories of valor, grit, patriotism and determination What s not to love about such strong qualities The stories are real The lives lost are real The difficulties and obstacles endured by our soldiers are genuine The knowledge that there are such brave souls out there who die in such terrible circumstances will make your heart bleed but, I promise, knowing them and their valor will strengthen your soul The book isn t a very crisp read The editor could have done a much better job because the author tends to repeat her thoughts and words through the stories Also each chapter could have been aligned better I believe, an editorial error and that would have made the brave stories a crisp and much better read I chose to concentrate on the stories which were real and had a lot of heart hence regardless of the small errors made by the author, and her editor, I choose to give this book a 4 star rating Had the book been a crisp read, I have no doubt I would have given it a 5 star rating We tend to take our freedom for granted We complaining about silly stuff like potholes, traffic jams, about standing in line to pay our property taxes, all the while when there are valiant souls guarding us at the wall who sometimes in remote areas lack ration and adequate clothing Do read this one It s a must read for all Indians

    writing this review would be a battle betwre the head and the heart your heart cannot believe the superhuman stories of courage displayed by these army men the head thinks that though the book is a good attempt in capturing the stories that every single Indian must know, the writing has a number of flaws the content structure is haphazard..phrases, words have been repeated, ideas have been re re reintroduced in the chapters despite the flaws, my heart takes over and I recommend everyone to read it and feel proud of the people who live and die for our nation.

    The writing is so charismatic that it takes you right into the combat zone and helps you to relate with each and every brave soldier.

    This is the first time I have read about all the Paramviir Chakra PVC awardees Every act of valor is inspiring and exemplary of paramviirataa supreme bravery The portrait of the braves outside the army life gives a glimpse of their childhood, thought process and family dynamics Their attitude of facing the most hazardous conditions even death, with a smile shows the mettle they are made of The writing lacks fluidity and continuity at few places and sometimes glosses over perhaps due to unavailability of details Overall, it is a good read and will recommend esp to Indians.

    This book is a true gem and a must read Brave chronicles the stories and war incidents of India s 21 Param Vir Chakra winners. While the writing is easy to read and follow, its really the spirit of these superhuman warriors that is really spellbinding Be it Piru Singh who single handedly destroyed 4 Pakistani intruder bunkers and soldiers before succumbing to his injuries in 1948, or Abdul Hamid who sank 7 Pakistani tanks in the 1965 war or Vikram Batra who defended Kargil, these warriors represent the spirit of the Indian Army and how we are eternally indebted to them to keep us safe Salute to these bravehearts
