Param Vir Chakra (PVC) is the highest gallantry award given to the personnel of Indias armed forces. Only 20 army men and one air force pilot have received this top honour so far, 14 of them after sacrificing their life. The stories of the recipients of the PVC, the super human heroic acts of the Param Vir, should inspire every Indian. But how many of us know of their legendary deeds? How many of us know their names?. All these should have been part of Indias proud military history. The heroic actions of these soldiers should have found a place in the lessons of our school textbooks. Alas, we are yet to have an official history of wars free India has fought!
