Remembering A Brave Parsi.. Lt. Col Adi Burzorji Tarapore, Battle of Chawinda
Here is a copy of the recording made by the BBC Hindi radio program recently, recalling the shining example of gallantry, courage and leadership of a Parsi Commander during one of the most fiercely fought tank battles of the 1965 Indo-Pak War, at the Battle of Chawinda. For his unrelenting act of bravery, gallantry and setting a shining example for the whole division, disregarding personal injury, a grateful Nation posthumously bestowed on him the highest military award for gallantry in war, the PARAM VIR CHAKRA.
As per email below, the recording made recently by BBC, was sent to Mrs Zarine Boyce last week, the daughter of Late Lt. Col. A.B. Tarapore, PVC.
For your listening pleasure of the tribute a link is provided below. Hope it fills all Zarathushti hearts with pride.
