    The book has been written beautifully by Colonel Virender Nath Thapar and Neha Dwivedi. A book about a child, who went on becoming an inspiration for hundreds of officers inducted in the Indian Armed Forces. The story starts with the nuptial knot of young Army officer Virender and his beautiful, modest wife Mrs. Tripta Thapar, where their life began from amidst multiple posting packing bags every now and then.

A book about a child, who went on becoming an inspiration for hundreds of officers inducted in the Indian Armed Forces. The story starts with the nuptial knot of young Army officer Virender and his beautiful, modest wife Mrs. Tripta Thapar, where their life began from amidst multiple posting packing bags every now and then. Vijyant (Robin) was the first born to the parents who traveled across military stations and slept under the same sky where jets roared in the sky. Virender Sir proudly named his first born after the battle tank Vijayanta (known as Vijyant), when one evening he was enjoying his tea at Pathankot. The tank transporters where unloading the battle tank Vijayanta, the first indigenous tank of the Indian Army. Vijyant was rightly named in all the sense, his spirit was high and since his childhood days he lived with his parents and was brought up in the plush cantonment area, where men in uniform marched every where. He also belonged to the family where generations had served in the Force. His determination to join the Forces was a dream which he bestowed upon idolized his father returning from work every day in the uniform. Robin was an extra-ordinary child who used military lingo, while playing games with his cousins even at a very tender age. Flip the pages of this book, where you would experience the laughter of a family, units marching in and out, bags being packed every year, new friends in every walk of life, aroma of homely food, and dreams of a boy called ‘Robin’. There has been never a dull moment in the book. There’s a zeal in every defeat and an added flavor to every victory in the walk of life. How Robin and Birdie walked from every stage of their life, facing defeats gracefully and kissing challenges. I have never been to Indian Military Academy, I have just seen it in the movie “Lakshya”, but when Robin marched in as an Officer.. I did nothing but smile. Not many of us know about war hero and military history and this book is why you should know. I have been delaying the chapter 18: Knoll. As I knew, we will lose a smiling Robin, an enthusiastic Robin, a Robin uttering “Shera Shera” in difficult moments…. A war would be won, at the cost of many lives. I think every one should be reading this one for not just soldiers protecting us from dawn to dusk. Even civilians should read and understand the charismatic figure of Captain Vijyant Thapar, how he lost his future and our today. A proud couple lost their shining child whose smile never faded away in tough times. I can’t imagine the pain which Thapar family underwent during the writing of this book, living the days again. But, certainly I am overwhelmed reading the book about the HERO.

    Reading VIJYANT AT KARGIL felt more like listening to an Uncle reminisce his youthful days than like reading a book - the places he's been; the sights he's seen; the life he's lived.

Like most fathers, the author VN Thapar's, (a retired army officer himself) life story revolves majorly around his sons - Robin & Birdie. Also co-authored by Neha Dwivedi, the daughter of a Kargil martyr, this book is the biography of Vijyant a.k.a Robin - of how an outdoorsy, rather shy but a very amiable kid goes on to defend his brothers at war, eventually sacrificing his very life, his future & his dreams for the sake of his duty towards our motherland. " When you go home, tell them of us & say - for your tomorrow, we gave our today". Through the book, we traverse through an exciting army life - the environment around a cantonment, the friends one makes & leaves through the constant shifting, the pangs of separation a family feels due to inaccessible postings, the constant anxiety in a pre-cell phone era, the bonds developed at various postings, the very ordinary lives made extraordinary by the ultimate sacrifice, the eternal glory after a well-lived mortal life. We laugh when Robin was an adorable child. Our hearts swell with pride when he grows up to be a charitable good soul. It breaks into a thousand pieces when we know Robin's loss is inevitable at the Knoll. Robin's last letter builds a tight knot in our throats - the valour, the acceptance of the obvious! The last few chapters have some exquisite details about the Kargil war - mostly confined to Robin's experience though. "Is this what separates life from death - a moment, a bullet?" This book is a must read for us - the general public. Not just to honour this 22 year old Vir Chakra awardee martyr, but to understand that war is no joke! To understand that army families are so relatable to us, yet so different. It's written in simple English and it's so soulful that it's un-put-downable! Now you can see why I can't review or criticize this book - I only have praises to sing. A highly recommended book!🇮🇳

First half of the book goes through Vijayant Thapar's life at school, home, how he missed NDA but eventually joined IMA. It is very inspiring to know how ordinary men have such extraordinary strengths when it comes to putting the nation above everything else. Sincere thanks to his father for sharing this biography with us all. A hugely indebted nation, sir! Go ahead and get your copy of the book. We very rarely get to see books on our soldiers. And that too 22 year olds who defied all odds in Kargil and fought.

    My hands shake and my heart trembles as I strive to write the legacy of this legend. I remember my granny telling us stories about brave warriors and fighters and as a child I always wondered what blood these people are made of, what kind of a divine insight did they foresee while smiling calmly in the face of death. Capt Vijyant Thapar, fondly known as Robin was one such warrior. An obedient son, a loving soul and a brave warrior, Robin is a complete story in himself. Before I let some more wor My hands shake and my heart trembles as I strive to write the legacy of this legend. I remember my granny telling us stories about brave warriors and fighters and as a child I always wondered what blood these people are made of, what kind of a divine insight did they foresee while smiling calmly in the face of death. Capt Vijyant Thapar, fondly known as Robin was one such warrior. An obedient son, a loving soul and a brave warrior, Robin is a complete story in himself. Before I let some more words flow here is something his commanding officer late Col. M.B.Ravindranath had written for him. “To every man upon earth death must commeth sooner or later How can a man die better than facing fearful odds For the ashes of his fathers And the temple of his Gods” At the tender age of twenty-two when teenagers talk about making big plans, Robin laid down his life for the country in the Kargil War. “Vijyant at Kargil” is not just a book but a mythos of a man who was born to make a difference. The book opens up with the journey Robin’s birth and takes you on a glorious journey of his childhood and how as a child he was focussed on his ambitions and how he worked towards achieving them one step at a time. Robin had extremely high regards for his father and making him and the country proud was his ultimate goal of his life. We witness a toddler Robin through his eyes and the way he perceived the working of the world and how he dreamt of bringing happiness to people’s lives whichever way possible. From being a helpful friend to a disciplined GC to becoming a leader Robin just like his statement did live his life king size. Named after a war tank Vijyant stood up to his name and lead his platoon to glory in the war of Kargil. There is so much to this book than just stories. Through the author’s words we sense Robin around us as he holds our hands and takes us through the journey of his life one page at a time. What we remember of Vijyant is just his valour but it is through this book that we get to experience his humane side whether that be helping the distressed or taking the responsibility of Rukhsana. “I have no regrets, in fact even if I become a human again I’ll join the army again and fight for my nation,” if these words don’t give you goosebumps, then nothing else will. Robin could have easily opted for an easy going life by he instead chose to serve his country till his last breath. Every word in this book leaves a deep imprint on your heart and your eyes well up with tears of pride at the bravery of this gentleman. As commoners, we fail to understand what war is for we are sitting far away cosily in our cocoons oblivious to the fact that war is not a joke. It is for men like Vijyant who fight like lions, for us to wake up to a brighter sunrise. “Please come and see where the Indian Army fought for your tomorrow.” These words are heavy to write and even heavier to hold in the heart. Yes Robin, we are forever indebted to the bravery of you and all those men who fought to glory for saving the honour of our beloved motherland.

    ‘When you go home, tell them of us and say - for your tomorrow, we gave our today'. I am writing this review with swelled up eyes. This memoir, with the simple writing of Colonel V.N. Thapar and Neha Dwivedi, will leave a special mark in every reader's heart. The first half of the book explores the nonchalant childhood of Robin while the second half carries his admission into the IMA and the moments he relishes in his camps and battle events. Captain Vijyant Thapar is a fourth-generation military ‘When you go home, tell them of us and say - for your tomorrow, we gave our today'. I am writing this review with swelled up eyes. This memoir, with the simple writing of Colonel V.N. Thapar and Neha Dwivedi, will leave a special mark in every reader's heart. The first half of the book explores the nonchalant childhood of Robin while the second half carries his admission into the IMA and the moments he relishes in his camps and battle events. Captain Vijyant Thapar is a fourth-generation military officer. He is named after India's first indigenous tank, Vijayanta. Vijyant aka Robin is lively, obedient and adventurous. He is boastful and often spends time outside with military personnel or playing war-war games with his friends, cousins and his brother, Birdie. He picks up military terms from his father's speech and impart them in the game to make it more realistic. As his father gets posted to different places across the country, readers could witness the beautiful moments of the growth of Robin. Starting from fishing in Beas with his father, picking up the interest from one of his father's friend, driving his inspiration from his fighter pilot uncle to relishing the stories of skirmishes from his father. Little in between, the story was filled with beautiful conversations between him and his friends and family. I was amazed to see the perseverance and determination of Robin in the academy. Through the course of his camps, beautiful picturesque landscape and snow-capped mountains captures our heart. During one of his encounters, a remark made by him left me thinking. ‘Is this what separates life from death- a moment, a bullet?'. Near the end, I almost broke down while reading the part where his father and mother listen to his song recording, and gets heart-broken as the couple realise that they won't be able to see their grandchildren and play with them. The mixed emotions of his father as he strung heavily for the loss of his son, the relief in knowing that his son died a painless death, the pride that his son died fighting valiantly for the Country was palpable. This made me realise that how selfless soldiers are, how they too have their own moments of fear, and how they deeply yearn to live and see their family. I would highly recommend this book.

Vijyant at Kargil is a biography of a war hero who gave up his life defending his country and it's citizens. The book's penned down by his father Col. V.N. Thapar and Neha Dwivedi (@nehadw), which beautifully portrays a selfless sacrifice made by a 22 year old Captain.  The book follows the life of Captain Vijyant Thapar (Robin), who grew up carefree and compassionate yet had a deep instilled sense of duty and bravery. The initial chapters were a delight, as it seemed like a flawless interconnected short story weaving a perfect picture of his early days and the environment he grew up in. Robin seemed determined and relentless in every pursuit of his. I especially enjoyed the parts with Robin and Bonny. Knowing Robin through this meticulously crafted book was profoundly dolorous. You'll feel a sense of loss for a person you didn't know before.  'Death will come to all of us' Captain Vijyant Thapar We the people, often forget about the sacrifices made for us. Sacrifices not only by those who gave up their lives in order to secure ours, but the people who they leave behind in their wake. The bereaved families are left behind with the act of gallantry and their hearts broken forever. The latter chapters were beyond compelling and unimaginably heartbreaking. Because often reality of a war, is. The battle of Knoll was depicted in a way that it paints a vivid picture.  Veer Bhogye Vasundhara (the brave had indeed inherited the earth) Never should we forget those who stand guard; as we enjoy our freedoms. It's a brilliant memoir that casts a light on the heroes who fought the battle of Knoll, especially our Robin. This book was informative and so simply written that it imprinted an everlasting image on my mind. This is a memoir that should be on everyone's Tbr! P.S. Thank you for the book Penguin India. 'When you go home, tell them of us and say- for your tomorrow, we gave our today.' (Inscription on a memorial of WW II soldiers in Kohima, India) Had to share this today.

Vijyant at Kargil is the biography of Capt Vijyant Thapar, Vir Chakra who got martyred at the age of 22 in the Kargil war. The biography is co-authored by COL V.N.Thapar, father of Vijayant along with Neha Dwivedi who is also daughter of a Kargil War martyr. The book starts with a brief glimpse of the Kargil war days, so the reader has a heads-up of how the story is going to end. The story then starts from when Vijyant’s father got married, the multiple places he gets transferred to as part of his role in the defense services and birth of Vijyant. Even the way Vijyant’s name has been conceived by his father after a battle tank is interesting. His growing years with his visiting cousins, making new friends at new places every few years, living in defense cantonments in the middle of the armed forces is vividly described. As a family who have served the country for generations and being around men in uniform, joining the Armed Forces was an obvious choice for Vijyant. We often read about these brave hearts only in news article, which generally describe only their moment of martyrdom. However, this book explores Vijyant’s story as his proud father reminisces his son’s life starting from birth, providing the minute details of his childhood and growing up years; the story hence captures the unknown and personal side of Vijyant, his fond memories from his family’s view. The final chapters are obviously heart-breaking, but the story is overall very inspiring and fulfilling. The actual war and the prelude these sequences are very gripping. The pictures shared by the family, Vijyant’s diary entries are soul-stirring to go through. The valor, grit and determination of Vijyant and hence makes for an important read and it was very kind of the authors to put forth such material in public domain. This book is a must read, especially for the youth of the country to know the sacrifices of their brothers, as they make sure all of us stay safe and thus help build the country.

    Whenever we Indians realise that the month of August has begun, our hearts are clenched by one epiphany in particular - the Independence Day is nigh! There are preparations of march pasts and pipe bands already happening in full swing almost everywhere in India. I am not sure about this year though!

Whether it is poetry or prose, this In Whenever we Indians realise that the month of August has begun, our hearts are clenched by one epiphany in particular - the Independence Day is nigh! There are preparations of march pasts and pipe bands already happening in full swing almost everywhere in India. I am not sure about this year though! And it is in this month when we are overwhelmed with the mainstream Indianness that we decide to read Indian books on India which are written by Indian authors. Whether it is poetry or prose, this Indianness lasts for 31 days, in the garb of patriotism. However, this book does not singularly talk about Indianness. Consider Vijyant at Kargil as a literary #throwback to those days of horror and anxiety which never stole the sleep of the Indian commoners, because we knew it well that our soldiers were fighting in the war till their last breath. It is a recognition and celebration of bravery and sacrifice of an Indian soldier. I find myself on slippery ground as I type in my thoughts and opinions pertaining to Vijyant at Kargil. No. I think I am not qualified enough to criticise this book, because Vijyant at Kargil is sought from experience. History can be altered with every vantage point, but not experience. Memories and experience are capable of creating as well as dismantling the foundations of history. Thus, I choose to believe in this memoir of a brave national hero whose mission was plain and simple – to protect our motherland, India, against all odds. Vijyant at Kargil includes a multitude of anecdotes from the life of Captain Vijyant Thapar, along with many photographs taken from the archives. It is a moving work of biography, and at the same time a comprehensive documentation of an Indian soldier’s life and legacy. Vijyant at Kargil is one of the Indian English memoirs that should be in your reading list for sure.

Captain Vijyant Thapar's journey will definitely serve as an inspiration for all Indian youths who read it and try to inculcate some positive values from Captain Vijyant Thapar.

    A beautiful piece written by Col. V. N. Thapar (Capt. Vijyant Thapar's father) and Neha Dwivedi. This book inspires a person many ways as it talks about how a 22yrs old young man chose to be a lot of things, brave, passionate, happy, fun loving and kind- all in such a short-lived lifetime! Captain Vijyant Thapar is going to inspire me for the rest of my life, I am certain about that. A beautiful piece written by Col. V. N. Thapar (Capt. Vijyant Thapar's father) and Neha Dwivedi.

    I thought I 'd never read a mil history or biography of a war hero. But this book proved me wrong and I must say that every single countryman should read this one... to know what it takes to be a true Hero. Many thanks to the authors for the great work..

    An exceptionally well written book. The way the author narrates the story of this hero, it makes you feel as if you are a ,part of his life. So many big and small details about his life narrated here. Keeps you engrossed till the end.

    You cannot review a book link this. This is larger than life living. The passion of a young boy which is steeped in patriotism and escalates every passing minute. My thoughts on this book expressed here - ofbookbabiesandmore.wordpress.com
