Sepoy Laxman Choudhary

Sepoy Laxman Choudhary hailed from Khejadla village in Bilara tehsil of Jodhpur district in Rajasthan. Son of Shri Kiranaram Choudhary and Smt Mangi Devi, Sep Laxman had a sister Sushila and brother Sunil as siblings. He joined the Army after completing his education in the year 2015 at the age of 18 years. He was recruited into 21 Jat battalion of the well known Jat Regiment, an infantry regiment widely respected for its intrepid soldiers and numerous battle exploits.

 

By the year 2020, he had put in around 5 years of service and had developed into a tough and dedicated soldier. After serving for a couple of years wit his parent unit he was deputed to serve with 61 RR battalion deployed in J&K for counter-insurgency operations. His marriage had been fixed in April 2021, but the destiny has something else in store for him. 

 

LOC Firing (Sunderbani Sector): 03 Feb 2021

 

During Sep 2020, Sep Laxman‘s unit 61 RR was deployed in the Sunderbani sector of J & K along the LOC. India shares a 3,323-km border with Pakistan, of which 221 km of the IB and 740 km of the LOC fall in Jammu and Kashmir. As in the previous years, the LOC was highly active and volatile where ceasefire violations occurred very often and without any warning. It was also used by the terrorists for infiltration with the connivance of Pakistani security forces. The year 2020 witnessed very high number of ceasefire violations and the trend continued in the year 2021 too. One more such ceasefire violation took place on 03 Feb 2021 in Rajouri district of J&K.

 

On 03 Feb 2021, Pakistani troops initiated unprovoked firing on Indian posts from across the border in the Sunderbani sector in Rajouri district. Pakistani soldiers violated the ceasefire and resorted to unprovoked firing using small arms, automatics, and mortars. Pakistan army resorted to shelling and firing in Sunderbani sector with a view to push trained militants into the Indian territory. Sep Laxman’s unit was manning one of the forward posts in that sector. Indian forces retaliated forcefully against the ceasefire violation and the cross border firing continued for several hours. However, during the exchange of fire, Sep Laxman got grievously injured and was immediately shifted to the hospital at the nearby Army base. However, Sep Laxman later succumbed to his injuries and was martyred. Sep Laxman was a valiant and committed soldier who laid down his life at the age of 23 years in the service of the nation.

 

Sep Laxman Choudhary is survived by his father Shri Kiranaram Choudhary, mother Smt Mangi Devi, sister Sushila and brother Sunil.

Today, I feel so proud and would like to express my gratitude towards your family. You will always be indelible in our hearts. Lots of strength to your family. The nation will always be grateful to you. I wish I could meet such a young and brave man in my life and could hear your stories of strength and how bravely you fought for us.

    Laxman the Gallant…. Truly inspired by his bravery!!! #Goosebumps

    Not everyone understands that there’s a purpose to life. In a generation where the Youth is spending most time being active on social media, you decide to stand up for us against the bullies who threaten our freedom and comfort. The thing about dealing with a bully “You start running, they’ll never let you stop.”, so we need to keep getting up each time we fall, facing the hardships as they come and never give up.

    When a person has someone/something important to protect, that is when they truly become strong. I can only imagine the thoughts running through your mind each day as a soldier – “The price of freedom is high. And it’s a price I’m willing to pay. And if I’m the only one, then so be it.” and it gives me goosebumps feeling the level of determination of such a great leader.

    There is only one thing that is keeping India strong, it’s the Guts to Never Give Up. Warriors like you have made India so much stronger!

    Jai Hind!!
