Bright Times News: “Yeh Dil Maange More!” A slogan of a multinational company spread to homes in India two decades ago. Courtesy of Indian Army Captain Vikram Batra. Vikram, known for his smiling face and film life, fascinated the whole of India 23 years ago.
The young man from Palampur in Himachal Pradesh was the target of India’s retaliation against the Pakistani aggressors in Kargil. Captain Vikram Batra was martyred on July 8, 1999, at the age of 24. After more than two decades, his country has not forgotten him.
A few years ago, the story of Vikram’s (Captain Vikram Batra) childhood came up in the face of his brother Vishal. Vishal said they did not have a television in their house at that time. Every Sunday morning they would go to a neighbor’s house and watch the popular Doordarshan program Param Vir Chakra. Kishore Vikram’s memory was cut off from that event. From then on, he decided to join the Indian Army.

The first step in Captain Vikram Batra’s path was to join the National Cadet Corps (NCC). Vikram came to study at DAV College in Chandigarh and enrolled in NCC. Not only that, but he also won the title of best cadet for two consecutive years.
Vikram’s next destination was the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun. From there he joined the 13th Jammu and Kashmir Rifles. He became a member of the army when he was only 19 years old.
Even before the Kargil War of 1999, word of Captain Vikram Batra’s bravery spread in the Indian Army. He gained recognition through his courage, skill, and innate ability to lead. In the Kargil war, Vikram’s code name was ‘Shershaah’ and the victory signal was ‘Yeh Dil Maange More!’
Captain Vikram Batra had the mentality to fight to the end for his dream. Brother Vishal said that while taking commando training, they used to get scared when they saw Vikram’s body wounds. But Vikram never bothered with that. Because that wound was also a step toward fulfilling his dream.
Vikram (Captain Vikram Batra) was always the same diwana in his life. This filmy thought of his love and war has been seen again and again. Dimple Cheema, a lover, has ever painted Sinthi by cutting her finger with a blade. Again, instead of the conventional war cry, he has chosen the slogan of the multinational company for himself.
Two decades after his martyrdom, Shershaah was made with the life of Captain Vikram Batra. The movie starring Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani is also very popular. Because even after two decades, Indians have not forgotten that Vikram.
