-- Capt. Vikram Batra’I’ll either come back after raising the Indian flag in victory or return wrapped in it.’
Pepsi vaalla tagline ikkadnunche vacchindhiJune 1, 1999, his unit proceeded to the Kargil Sector where by now war like situation had erupted. The first task assigned to the young officer was the recapture of Point 5140, which was at an altitude of 17000 feet. Upon reaching the point he got into a cheeky conversation with a terrorist commander on the radio. The enemy commander challenged him by saying, “Why have you come Sher Shah (Vikram’s nick name given by his commanding officer), you will not go back”. Captain Vikram Batra with immense confidence replied, “We shall see within one hour, who remains on the top”. In a short while Captain Batra and his company of troops killed 8 enemy soldiers and captured a heavy anti-aircraft machine gun. Mission Point 4140 was a success!!
Soon after the success of Point 5140 he radioed his commanding officer and said victoriously “Yeh Dil Maange More”
:)Vikram was challenged by an enemy officer, “Shershah, nobody shall be left to lift your bodies” to which Captain Vikram replied, “Don’t you worry about us, Pray for your safety.”
In all this action one of his junior officers (Lieutenant Naveen) has severely injured his leg. Captain Batra went for his rescue. While dragging Lieutenant Naveen back under cover he pleaded to Captain Batra to let him continue the fight inspite the injuries to which Captain Batra heroically replied “Tu baal bachedaar hai!! Hatt jaa peeche”, (English Translation: You have kids and wife to look after! Get back).
It didn’t take long for this war hero to realize that he had been hit in the chest by an enemy bullet and then in a spilt of a second he was hit by a artillery splinter in the waist region. This great martyr gave away his last breath with “Jai maata di” (English Translation: Long Live Mother Durga) on his lips. Before succumbing to his injuries he killed 5 more enemy soldiers.
