Captain Neikezhakuo Kenguruse, affectionately called 'Nimbu Saab', is a lesser known hero of the Kargil War. He belonged to the second battalion of the Rajputana Rifles. It played a crucial role in defending Point 4590 - an operation during which it lost twenty-three soldiers. One of the fallen heroes was the twenty-five-year-old Captain Kenguruse, who led his men barefoot into combat in temperatures of -10 degrees Celsius.


Kenguruse was posthumously awarded the country's second highest gallantry award, the Maha Vir Chakra. Even so, his story remains relatively unknown.


On the occasion of the War's twenty-fifth anniversary, Neha and Diksha Dwivedi, daughters of a Kargil War hero themselves, come together with Kenguruse's brother, Neingutoulie, to tell us who Nimbu Saab was, about his life in uniform and beyond, and the act of bravery in which he lost his life.
