    Oh I know about him all right. I remember when I was young, in school there was a full episode of Param Vir Chakra on TV dedicated to him. Even today (guess 20 years later) I remember the scenes. Guy comes back to family, still in dire stratights and he says 'main itni tarakki karronga ki hum isse niklege'. and then the war. He goes into the sky and keeps fighting and fighting long after he's told he can disengage. And he finally sacrifices himself for the country.
