Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat

Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat is an extra-ordinary symbol of bravery. He was a legend in the Indian Army. During Indo- China War of 1962, he was a part of the Fourth Battalion of the Garhwal Rifles. During the war, they were asked to retreat from their position, due to heavy casualty and circumstances. But, Jaswant Singh Rawat stayed back to fight against the Chinese. He fought against them with the utmost intelligence and courage. With the help from two Monpa tribal girls named Sela and Nura, he set up weapons at separate points and maintained a volume of fire that fooled the Chinese into believing that they were faced with a huge battalion.

This went on for three days and it frustrated the Chinese. But, when Chinese captured the man who was supplying rations to Jaswant, Jaswant Singh Rawat shot himself in the head, knowing that he would be captured soon. The Chinese became furious when they learned that they were fighting a lone soldier and then they cut off his head and carried it back to China. However, after the ceasefire, the Chinese commander, impressed by the soldier’s bravery, returned the head along with a brass bust of Jaswant Singh. The bust, created in China to honor the brave Indian soldier, is now installed at the site of the battle. Sela died in a grenade burst and Nura was captured. Jaswant Singh Rawat is the only soldier in the long history of the Indian army, who is known to have risen through the ranks after his death, and this rifleman has been promoted to the rank of Honorary Captain. This great son of India was awarded the Maha Vir Chakra (posthumous).
