Param Veer Chakra – is the superior gallantry award in Indian Military Services. There was a TV serial with the same name was made and aired in 1980s on DoorDarshan, then only TV Network in India.
Availability of such TV Serials as a set of DVD is kind of must in the time when people used to forget the real heroes who sacrifice their lives and other possessions for the motherland. When the country is fighting with the internal problems like corruption, internal terrorism and others; we must remember those heroes who remain unsung. At the best they are remembered on the independence day or the republic day but then people used to forget them.
This tradition is wrong, it definitely affects the moral of the soldiers and other armed forces. They may lose faith and hope in the system and the motherland will suffer from the same ultimately. We need to learn to thank and remember those real heroes. As they gave their everything for the motherland, their families should be taken care with utmost honor and respect.

- Major Somnath Sharma

The TV serial was not a master-piece in terms of technical aspects and acting. Some of the seasoned actors performed really well, at the same time, there are remarkable number of poor acts also found in the same. But, the content is real (might be a little dramatized, but real) and some war scenes are technically fantastic as well.
If you search for the various episodes of the same on YouTube, you will find a lot of them, uploaded by various users. The title song is very effective and we really want to see this TV Serial available on DVD.
