    Capt Suraj Sharma is my first cousin and we have grown up together. Standing just 5’6” tall he often told that the best things come in small packages. A favourite of all his cousins, he won hearts easily. However despite his extremely kind and lovable nature he was a strong and determined soldier. He opted Army over writing a joint entrance exam for the elite institutes of India. He saw nothing beyond the armed forces. He toiled hard through his journey from NDA to IMA and being commissioned into the Dogra Regiment to joining the Para SF forces. Passion was the key. He was a major inspiration behind a younger cousin joining the armed forces in his lines. His patriotism and sense of responsibility was exemplary. He would always say that one day he will come home wrapped in the tri colour as that was the greatest honour for a soldier. We often gave him promises not to talk on those lines.
    His words came true, the day he was on a counter terrorism operation in Kupwara.
    We lost a gem. We lost the spark of our home. We were left with a hollow while he attained martyrdom.
    He is fondly remembered and tremendously missed. He was a star of our family and has never ceased shining.
    He is survived by his father, Retired DSP of vigilance, Mr Ram Kumar Sharma, his mother Mrs Radhika Sharma, a retired teacher and an elder sister, Ms Sahida Sharma.

    Capt. Suraj Sharma was from a beautiful town called Kurseong, in Darjeeling District of West Bengal. He was just 25years old when he attained martyrdom.
    He was always a brilliant student who always stood first in his class. He studied at Goethals Memorial School, Kurseong till 10th and higher secondary from Hyderabad Public school. After that he joined NDA thus, choosing Indian Army as his career.
    He was immensely humorous, lived life to fullest, loved Govinda movies, was extremely open hearted and all of his younger cousins (including me) were his blind followers and loved him to bits. Losing him was the biggest tragedy for us, though we are very very proud of him. The moments we spent with him are still fresh in our thoughts and mind.
    Capt. Suraj Sharma left his body on 8th June
    2001 and his mother Smt. Radhika Sharma passed away to be with him forever on 10th June 2021.
    His father and sister live in Dwarka .. in a society named after Kargil!
    Capt. Suraj Sharma Sadaiva Amar rahe! Jai Hind!

    I hail from the same village as him. St. Mary’s Hill, Kurseong, Dist Darjeeling, West Bengal. I never did get a chance to meet him as I was very small when he passed away. But I have heard about his exemplary life and ultimate sacrifice. After a couple of years after his death, his family sold their home and moved out and settled in the cities(I don’t know where). I feel our village and our town has forgotten this hero. The local administration has renamed a road after him but that is about it. The younger generation don’t know who he was. I wish he was celebrated as a local hero every year so that the upcoming generations do not forget him. May he rest in peace.
