Lance Naik Albert Ekka, Param Vir Chakra (Posthumous) by Man Aman Singh Chhina

The India–Pakistan war of 1971 was short but very intense. Though it lasted just thirteen days, it took a heavy toll on the Indian armed forces – nearly 3900 lost their lives and around 10,000 were wounded. Those thirteen days between December 3, when the war began with Pakistan’s attack on Indian airfields, and December 16, when it ended with the surrender of the Pakistan Army at Dhaka, saw countless acts of heroism and sacrifice from the Indian armed forces.

An unprecedented number of gallantry awards were given to those who took part in that war: four Param Vir Chakras, seventy-six Maha Vir Chakras, and 513 Vir Chakras.
