Some time back, we featured a moving video where veterans of the 1971 war who had served aboard the INS Vikrant shared their stories of courage, valour and duty. They considered themselves the “Sons of Vikrant.” It is through their herculean efforts and stoicism that we were able to achieve a decisive naval victory. But it seems that as time goes on, the stories of these bravehearts are fading away. And we cannot let that happen.

To that end, Bajaj V has launched #MissionVikrant1971, an initiative to seek out the heroes of the 1971 war, honour their achievements & capture their stories for eternity. The video presents some extraordinary tales of bravery under duress and they deserve to be shared. The initiative also urges those who know the “Sons of Vikrant” personally, to come forth and aid them in the search for these unsung heroes. Check it out!
