Pepsi has launched a set of limited-edition cans and a heartwarming ode as homage to Captain Vikram Batra and many other bravehearts, who led India to victory at Kargil.

 

Speaking about the tribute, Captain Batra’s twin brother Vishal Batra said, “22 years ago, Vikram’s powerful voice rang out over a radio and inspired patriotism in Indians of all ages as he said ‘Yeh Dil Maange More’. Today, ahead of Kargil Vijay Diwas, I am both, proud and grateful that Pepsi is taking the story of his selflessness and courage across the country. It was an emotional experience for me to record the ode which is dedicated to my brother as it brought back many fond memories of him. I am hopeful that the story of his valour will inspire millions of Indians and remind them of the sacrifices by the brave souls who are on the border, so that we can feel safe back home.”

 

Added an unnamed PepsiCo India spokesperson: “‘Yeh Dil Maange More’, a phrase that has always been synonymous with Pepsi, took on a new meaning when Capt. Batra adopted the line as his rallying cry. We are proud to honour the valour and selflessness of Capt. Batra and many other soldiers like him through the new limited-edition cans and a special heartfelt video. This Kargil Vijay Diwas, we are remembering all those brave heroes and salute their indomitable spirit and resilience.”
