Birla releases stories of CRPF heroes on 19th  anniversary of Parliament attack

New Delhi, Dec 13 (UNI) Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Sunday released a book “The Shaurya Unbound-Tales of Valour of the Central Reserve Police Force”, a collection of 13 most exemplary acts of valour of CRPF brave hearts who were awarded with Chakras on the occasion of the 19th anniversary of Parliament attack.

Mr Birla released the English and Hindi version of the book which includes tales of insurmountable gallantry, of Constable Kamlesh Kumari Ashok Chakra (Posthumously) and four Shaurya Chakra recipients-Head Constable Yam Bahadur Thapa, Constable D Santosh Kumar, Constable Sukhwinder Singh, Constable Shyambir Singh, while retaliating the dastardly attack on the Indian Parliament in 2001.

Co-authored by Ms Nitu, DIG CRPF and M. Dhinakaran, DIG CRPF along with their team comprising Mr Amit, Assistant Commandant CRPF and Inspector Deepak Saxena, the book has stories of the recipients of Ashok Chakra-the Highest Peacetime Gallantry Award, Vir Chakra, and Shaurya Chakras. As CRPF has been going on peacekeeping missions to different countries, it is no surprise that the tale of Valour scripted by its braveheart in foreign land has found a place in the book.

The Speaker congratulated the force for bringing such a detailed book and said that he is sure that this book will fill hearts of everyone with pride and inspire the generations to come.

Expressing his happiness at the release of the book, CRPF DG Dr AP Maheshwari said that these true stories are our heritage and every citizen has the right to know about these stories and take pride in them.

The authors have taken great care in bringing the intricate details of the operations with valuable insights. The book does not just limit itself to the action of operation but reaches the emotions of personal life of these Heroes which though inseparable often gets ignored. The book often comes up with interesting anecdotes from the lives of these intrepid Warriors..

Dedicated to the citizens of the country and homage to those who made supreme sacrifice at the altar of duty, the book is written with reverence to bravery, adherence for accuracy, and most importantly a passion that simmers in the heart of a patriot.

The glorious history of the Central Reserve Police Force has been scripted by its Bravehearts who served the nation with sheer grit, indomitable courage, and unflinching commitment to duty. The acts of valour of these fearless men and women have been recognized with more than 2000 Gallantry Medals-the highest among any Central Armed Police Force.
