Though severely wounded, he refused to be evacuated so that he does not reduce the numbers available for the fight, by diverting them to take him to safety.
Instead he kept on fighting till the time he could.

Soon thereafter he succumbed to his injuries, right there on his final battlefield.
This 24 year son of an SBI employee, had done what under normal circumstances, might have been considered impossible.
But circumstances that summer were far from 'normal'.

कारगिल युद्ध को जम्मू-कश्मीर के कारगिल सेक्टर में लाइन ऑफ कंट्रोल के किनारे, 1999 के मई-जुलाई के दौरान लड़ा गया था। इस युद्व में भारतीय सेना ने पाकिस्तान के 3 हजार सैनिकों को मार गिराया था। यह युद्ध 18 हजार फीट की ऊंचाई पर लड़ा गया था। Image
कारगिल युद्ध के दौरान भारतीय सेना को कई बड़ी मुश्किलों का सामना करना पड़ा था। पाकिस्तानी सैनिक ऊंची पहाड़ियों पर थे जबकि हमारे सैनिकों को गहरी खाई में रहकर उनसे मुकाबला करना था। भारतीय जवानों को आड़ लेकर या रात में चढ़ाई कर ऊपर पहुंचना पड़ रहा था, जोकि बहुत जोखिमपूर्ण था। Image
कारगिल युद्ध 60 दिनों तक चला और अंततः 26 जुलाई 1999 को पाकिस्तान को मुंह की खानी पड़ी। भारत में युद्ध में विजय पताका फहराई और देश के स्वाभिमान के इस प्रतीक को ‘ऑपरेशन विजय’ नाम दिया गया। Image

काश्मीरला लडाखशी जोडणाऱ्या या एकमेव रस्त्यावर ताबा मिळविण्याचा पाकिस्तानचा उद्देश होता. ती सामरिकदृष्ट्या मोठी आघाडी ठरली असती. त्यासाठीच पाक लष्कराचे तत्कालिन प्रमुख जनरल #मुशर्रफ यांनी सुमारे ५० हजार सैनिक घुसखोरांच्या वेषात भारतीय हद्दीत धाडले

This is Siachen War Memorial at Siachen Base Camp in #Ladakh.
We control entire Siachen Glacier.
We control Saltoro Ridge & its passes at far greater heights than LAC.
Indian Army is invincible in mountain warfare.
We wanted more enemy bunkers to have been there so that we could get more Pakistani chaps.
This was the spirit of Captain Vikram Batra, PVC & every proud soldier who fought in #KargilWar .
Who can defeat such an army ? No power in the world.

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

Brig Devinder Singh is a hero who was wronged.
Misrepresentation of his battle performance cost him a war medal and possibly led to his being passed over for promotion as Major-General. May have even missed a shot at becoming army chief because of internal politics. (Thread)
The Armed Forces Tribunal upheld claims that top commanders (including then GOC 15 Corps, Lt Gen Pal) falsified accounts of battles in the Batalik sector, where Brig Devinder Singh was operating and in command. Here's my report from May 2010 when the order was made public.
"In April 1999, Lieutenant-General Pal dismissed warnings emerging from a war game, which suggested that a Kargil-like intrusion could take place. Brigadier Singh played a key role in the war game; his appraisal was proved correct." - @praveenswami in 2010.
