Sometime before the final assault Capt. Vijyant Thapar (Robin) left this letter at the from the attack area, to be handed over to his family in case he failed to return.





The brave way you left this world, at the age of 22 is a measure of how you lived your short life and what you valued. In meeting the stark challenges of capturing Knoll against all odds, during the battle of Three Pimples with heroic coolness and single minded devotion to duty, you have achieved immortal honour. In death you have epitomised the spirit of national pride - an honour which makes every sacrifice worthwhile. Your actions will forever inspire generations of Indians to come. You have left us with pride for being the parents of a worthy son and a lifetime of pain for having lost a child we loved.
                                                                         -- Col. V.N. Thapar

In fond memory of my brother, Vijyant Thapar (Robin) whose sacrifice has deeply moved us all.

" You will always remain in our hearts."
