On the day of the 16th anniversary of India’s victory in the 1999 Kargil War, also called Vijay Diwas, TIMES NOW salutes the exceptional gallantry and devotion of the young braveheart soldier who fought for our future and laid his life around battle fields in Kargil. Take a look at the stories of bravehearts to name a few – Captain Vijayant Thapar, Captain Manoj Pandey, Captain Vikram Batra – who laid down their lives for the nation. Their stories are of unmatched saga of bravery, gallantry, & devotion to duty well beyond the call of duty.

The Kargil war, which began in May 1999, lasted for more than two months before Pakistani soldiers, a bulk of them drawn from its Northern Light Infantry, and irregulars withdrew from the mountain tops they had occupied overlooking the Srinagar-Leh highway. In the conflict, the Indian Army lost 490 officers, soldiers and jawans.
