The Last Post
The last post is an exhibit dedicated to Captain Vijayant Thapar, aged 22, who died while evicting intruders from a ridge in Kargil on June 28, 1999. Also, the fathers message to the son can be seen in the below picture (click to enlarge it).

Fathers Message to the Brave Son: The brave way you left this world, at the age of 22 is a measure of how you lived your short life and what you valued. In meeting the stark challenges of capturing Knoll against all odds, during the battle of Three Pimples with heroic coolness and single minded devotion to duty, you have achieved immortal honour. In death, you have epitomised the spirit of national pride – an honour which makes every sacrifice worthwhile. Your actions will forever inspire generations of Indians to come. You have left us with pride for being the parents of a worthy son and a lifetime of pain for having lost a child we love.     – Col. V.N. Thapar
