The arduous efforts of its makers deserve accolades! Sino-Indian War 1962 happens to be a painful, yet, a proud remembrance for Indians owing to the extraordinary courage and valor of the Indian soldiers. It takes us back to the time when our nation had just freed itself from the shackles of British rule, and got split into India and Pakistan. The nation was still healing from the past wounds, that on October 20, 1962, India was attacked by China, which India never expected.
The belief of ‘never being attacked by China’, due to the long friendly ties between 2 countries in the past, didn’t allow India to prepare for this war. Consequently, this imposed an unprecedented situation of war between India and China, when the latter launched a vast attack from Aksai-Chin to Arunachal Pradesh simultaneously. In response to this sudden and unexpected attack, the brave Indian soldiers carried out their duties as strong retaliation against enemies. Within this situation, Sikh Regiment 1 of the Indian Army was guarding the border of Tawang sector at Tongpen La, IB Ridge, Bum La against numerous Chinese enemies. Though, the Chinese being heavily outnumbered, Subedar Joginder Singh, the commander of 11th platoon of Delta Company, kept the morale of his men boosted.
The Sikh soldiers stood strong against the Chinese attacks. The number of Sikh soldiers being substantially depleted by each wave of enemy attack, having being run out of ammunition, Subedar Joginder Singh, himself being shot in the thigh, didn’t make him and his men leave the battle field and continued killing the enemies. All through this, Subedar Joginder Singh displayed his love for motherland and an unforgettable devotion towards his duty.
