1962 China War

Lieutenant Colonel Dhan Singh Thapa - Param Vir Chakra awardee

Various authors

The Param Vir Chakra is India's highest military decoration for acts of conspicuous gallantry in the presence of the enemy.

We welcome additional materials about Lieutenant Colonel Dhan Singh Thapa - pre-Army, in-Army, post-Army - from relatives, friends, colleagues and other people who have relevant materials.

In the 1980s, Doordarshan commissioned Chetan Anand, a well-known film director, to produce TV episodes (in Hindi) on Param Vir Chakra awardees. The episode on Lieutenant Colonel Dhan Singh Thapa is avaiable at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei75FShf1CI

We also welcome similar materials - for separate stories - about other heroes and martyrs of the Indian Armed Forces, provided the time of the event was at least 30 years ago. Our contact is indiaofthepast@gmail.com
