In a ceremony held on Monday in honour of Parakram Diwas, Prime Minister Narendra Modi named the 21 largest nameless islands of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands after recipients of the Param Vir Chakra.

Additionally, PM Modi revealed a replica of the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Dweep, formerly known as the Ross Islands, where a national memorial honouring Netaji would be erected. Amit Shah, the Union Minister of Housing, attended the ceremony in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as well.

The largest unnamed island was given Major Somnath Sharma’s name in honour of the first recipient of the Param Vir Chakra, who died in combat on November 3, 1947, while repelling Pakistani spies near Srinagar Airport.

These islands bear the names of the 21 recipients of the Param Vir Chakra, including Major Somnath Sharma, Subedar and Hony Captain (then Lance Naik) Karam Singh, MM, 2nd Lt. Rama Raghoba Rane, Nayak Jadunath Singh, Company Havildar Major Piru Singh, Capt. GS Salaria, Lieutenant Colonel (then Major) Dhan Singh Thapa, Subedar Joginder Singh, Major

In 2021, the government designated January 23 as Parakram Diwas to mark the anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birth.

During the Prime Minister’s visit to the island in 2018, Ross Islands was renamed as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Dweep in recognition of Netaji and the historical significance of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Shaheed Dweep and Swaraj Dweep were also given to Neil Island and Havelock Island, respectively.

“The Prime Minister has always placed the highest priority on paying respect to the nation’s real-life heroes. In keeping with this ethos, it has now been agreed to name the island group’s 21 largest unnamed islands after the 21 recipients of the Param Vir Chakra “The PMO released a statement.

The first recipient of the Param Vir Chakra has the largest nameless island, the second recipient of the Param Vir Chakra has the second largest unnamed island, and so on.

This action will serve as a lasting memorial to our warriors, some of whom gave their lives to preserve the integrity and sovereignty of the country.

As a result, the programme dubbed “Know Your Leaders” has been introduced by the Lok Sabha Secretariat’s Parliamentary Research and Training Institute for Democracies (PRIDE).

Netaji, who was born on January 23, 1897, was a significant figure in the Indian independence movement.

The Azad Hind Fauj was founded by Subhash Chandra Bose. Although Bose’s death in a plane crash in Taipei on August 18, 1945, remains controversial, the Central government confirmed that he had passed away in the incident in a 2017 RTI (Right to Information).

The Prime Minister inaugurated the hologram statue of Netaji at India Gate in Delhi last year in honour of the 125th anniversary of the independence fighter’s birth.
