Mirabai visits National War Memorial, urges every Indian to visit the epitome of sacrifice and valour

By PIB Delhi

India’s ‘Silver Girl’ Saikhom Mirabai Chanu visited the National War Memorial in New Delhi which has been built to honour the courage, valour and sacrifice of the Indian Armed Forces.

Speaking about her visit to the 40 acre open landscaped memorial Mirabai said, “My stays in Delhi have usually been for tournaments but this time I kept this visit on my itinerary as this place bestows the essence of pride, not only for the armed forces but for every Indian,” said the Olympic Medallist.

Depicting the glorious war history of India since 1947, the memorial is a gestation on the idea of rebirth of those unsung heroes through their stories, journey and struggles translated as spatial expressions.

Walking through the semi open corridor and gallery holding the brave stories of significant historic battles in Indian history of the Army, Navy and Air force, Mira said, “I am mesmerised with how the concept of building this memorial is inspired by the historic ‘Chakravyuh’ formation and the walls decorated with bronze murals depicting the battle scenes fought by the sons of our soil.”

“After coming here, I deeply feel that every Indian should visit this place at least once in their life,” added Mira.

The Indian Weightlifter also paid tribute to martyr Major Laishram Jyotin Singh, who is awarded with the highest peace time gallantry award Ashok Chakra and hailed from her native state Manipur.
