December 19th, 2023: As part of Vedanta Sesa Goa’s ongoing campaign, ‘Garv Se-Vedanta for India’, Kargil War hero and Param Vir Chakra Awardee Capt. (Hony) Yogendra Singh Yadav virtually interacted with all employees of the Company on the eve of the 52nd Vijay Diwas. Earlier, as part of the Campaign, the recipient of the highest gallantry award of the land was felicitated in New Delhi.

During the virtual interaction, the ‘Hero of Tiger Hill’ inspired the attendees through an emphatic talk on the story of his life and experiences during the Kargil War and as part of his illustrious Army career. The virtual session was followed by a question-and-answer session, which witnessed enthusiastic participation from employees all across the 5-state and 2-continent Geography of Sesa Goa.

Extolling the virtues of maintaining a positive state of mind and inspiring ourselves through role models, Capt. (Hony) Yogendra Singh Yadav, PVC, speaking during the virtual interaction stated “It is paramount to maintain a positive state of mind through all situations in life, even when I was staring at near death, I maintained my positive orientation to not only survive but to also complete my mission at all costs. I was inspired by the stories of my father, who had successfully fought in the 1965 and 1971 wars, and by the feats of the likes of CQMH Abdul Hamid, PVC. No job is small and in fact, the smallest of the tasks are the most critical and we should do our best in our roles and that is how I was able to contribute in a big way during the Kargil War despite being a junior ranked soldier.”

The virtual interaction was enthusiastically viewed live across various social media platforms and stood for its unique and inspirational significance. Speaking on, Navin Jaju, CEO, Sesa Goa expressed, “It is a matter of immense pride and honour for the entire 6000+ strong Vedanta Sesa Goa ‘family’ to be hosting the ‘real Hero’ of our Nation as part of our ‘Garv Se-Vedanta for India’ campaign.

(Hony) Yogendra Singh Yadav, PVC, we renew our pledge to be a force for good and to work towards the prosperity and development of our Nation.”

As a precursor to the virtual interaction, Capt. (Hony.) Yogendra Singh Yadav, PVC, was felicitated in New Delhi in a ceremony that served as a profound reflection of the respect and gratitude expressed by all employees of Vedanta Sesa Goa. Handwritten letters, and heartfelt salutations, were presented to the ‘living legend’ acknowledging his unparalleled service to the Nation and his selfless devotion to the Motherland.
