Vijay Diwas“No Sir, I will not abandon my tank. My gun is still working and I will get these bastards.” - Second Lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, PVC over the radio to a superior officer who had ordered him to abandon his burning tank during 1971 Indo Pak War. He died on 16th December in the Battle of Basantar during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.

Vijay Diwas (Victory Day) is also commemorated on every 16th December in India as it marks its military victory over Pakistan in 1971 during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, who were alliance of Bangladesh Mukti Bahini. The end of the war also resulted in the unilateral and unconditional surrender of the Pakistan Army and subsequent secession of East Pakistan into Bangladesh.
