Indian Superman of 1962 War- He alone stopped Entire Chinese army and saved Arunachal Pradesh

Real heroes should be treated close to gods as they protect the people like a shield, without caring about their own life. When we talk about real-life heroes who sacrifice their lives, brave sergeants from Indian Army come to our mind. Quite often, their impeccable strategies and pyrotechnics pull off the heist for the nation.


They sweat it out, round the clock, on border from the baptism of fire and they cope with severe difficulties and obstacles in a bid to maintain the status quo loud and proud. Day by day, the respect towards the Indian Army is increasing and it is prudent to say that they are the ‘visible gods’.
The story of Jaswant Singh Rawat:
Jaswant Singh Rawat is a gallant Rifleman. During his times, he would outsmart any ally he faced in a battle. He was trained physically, mentally so well that he had grown from strength to strength to his lofty standards of fierce personality. He worked with valour and an iron fist. Even army soldiers of other countries used to admire his unmatched bravery.
Rifleman Jaswant Singh is highly regarded as the hero of Indo-China War of 1962. It was the last stage of the war in November 1962, his company faced a major setback owing to an acute shortage of resources. But, Jaswant Singh Rawat still remained loyal to his nation  and did not fall back even at this stage.
Though there were some difficulties as they had a shortage of resources, with the help of two local girls namely Sela and Nura- Jaswant Singh set up tactical weapons at three different spots and fired them constantly for three days to keep the Chinese forces at bay. By seeing this, the Chinese army remained unmoved. He stopped the entire Chinese army alone for 3 days.
Jaswant Singh is quite often regarded as ‘Solo Warrior’ who single-handedly terrorised the Chinese army for three days so much so that he killed 300 Chinese soldiers all by himself. It was because of his belligerent presence, China failed  to conquer Arunachal Pradesh.


Then how Chinese forces approached to tackle ‘Jaswant Singh’?
With Jaswant’s solo domination that kept ticking day by day, the Chinese Army was left in the blowtorch situation and they got frustrated as they knew there was no way to counter the Indian Army. Chinese soldiers came up with a different strategy to counter brave Jaswant Singh.
After so many attempts, they finally caught the man who was providing food to Jaswant. With no way to save his life, he had to reveal Jaswant’s whereabouts. Knowing the solid evidence, the Chinese then cornered Jaswant Singh from all sides. Nura was captured and Sela drew her last breath in a grenade burst.
Jaswant Singh, realising he was about to be captured, shot himself to death.The Chinese forces then cutoff Jaswant Singh’s head and jetted off to their nation as a war souvenir. After the conclusion of the war, the commander of the Chinese forces was pretty much impressed by late Jaswant Singh’s valour, returned his head along with a brass bust made of the soldier.
It is now set up at the site of the battle. He was posthumously awarded with Maha Vir Chakra for his exemplary bravery. The brave Indian soldier has done more than enough for the nation. Jaswant Singh’s pyrotechnics proved to be a great source of inspiration to Indian soldiers.
