Meet The Inspiring Women Who Rebuilt The Bhuj Air Strip Within 72 Hours During The Indo Pak War In 1971


Published On


Some three hundred women from Bhuj have a war memorial called Virangana Smarak built in their name as a glowing, living testimony of the huge contribution that they made in the 1971 India-Pakistan war.

On December 8, during the war of 1971, Pakistan dropped 14 napalm bombs on Bhuj, destroying the entire airstrip and thus rendering the Indian airforce handicapped to a great extent. Owing to the lack of man force, the airforce personnel had almost given up on the hope of repairing the airstrip within the required time limit when the people from the nearby village of Madhapar offered to help.
