The Bravest of the Brave

Have you ever felt yourself shiver when you read about a persons achievement that is so great that you are made to look as insignificant as a box of nothing and at the same time feel so proud that your heart is happy to the core and then again in the same instance feel so ashamed that you don't know where to look......Maybe even i dont understand the complete magnitude of feelings inside me but then it doesnt matter.

It is not about me at all, it is all about the Valour, the Courage, the Greatness of a Man/Hero known as Chuni Lal - amongst the most highly decorated soldiers of the Indian Army - and 8 J&K Light Infantry - The most decorated Battalion of the Indian Army led by Naib Subedar Bana Singh, one of India's greatest living heroes, who himself has won the Param Vir Chakra. Sadly the man is never going to set foot with us mortals again but then his place was always reserved somewhere else, somewhere a normal human only dreams of going after life is over.

Sir, you have made us all proud that you were an Indian and because of you and the efforts of your battalion, we can walk with our heads held high.
