This ambitious project will shed light on the indomitable courage and leadership exemplified by Brigadier Mohammad Usman, Mahavir Chakra revered as the 'Lion of Naushera,' along with gallant deeds of other soldiers like Param Vir Chakra awardee Naik Jadunath Singh and a group of brave children known as Bal Sainiks, whose unwavering dedication and sacrifice defended and reclaimed every inch of Indian territory after the raiders from Pakistan had intruded into Jammu and Kashmir.
