Yogendra singh Singh Yadav was born on 10th May, 1980 in Aurangabad, Uttar Pradesh. He was a soldier and a Junior Commissioned Officer of the Indian Army. He is the award winner of the highest military honour in India, the Param Vir Chakra, for his action during the July 1999 Kargil War.
Yadav was a part of 18 Grenadiers at the commando platoon GHATAK, tasked to capture three strategic bunkers on the Tiger Hill. The bunkers were on top of a vertical, snow covered, 16500 feet high cliff face. Yadav volunteered to lead the mission and to install ropes that would help the others to climb as well. Halfway up the journey, the enemy bunker opened up machine gun and rocket fire on him, killing the platoon commander and two others, also injuring Yadav with three bullets in his groin and shoulder. He still continued his journey and climbed the remaining 60 feet and reached the top. Despite the serious injury and pain he crawled to the first bunker and lobbed a grenade, killing four Pakistanis and neutralizing the effect of the enemy fire, this gave a chance to the rest of the platoon to climb up as well.
He continued fighting and charged the second bunker along with two fellow soldiers and engaged in some hand-to-hand combat as well, killing four more enemy soldiers and leading to the capturing of Tiger Hill and completion of the mission.
Gaining popularity for his actions, his role was played by superstar Hrithik Roshan in the Bollywood movie, Lakshya. He is also recorded as the youngest person to ever be awarded with the Param Vir Chakra. He was injured with 15 bullets, two hand-grenade wounds and an arm hanging limply from tendons and skin, wounds on the flesh took 16 months to heal and despite all this he is still here to serve his country. Kudos to these unsung heroes, who fight for their people and their nation.
