Colonel Chewang Rinchen, MVC**, SM, is rightfully hailed as the Lion of Ladakh. Starting as a young soldier at the tender age of 17, he excelled as a soldier and leader of men while operating in possibly the harshest terrain and weather conditions in the country. A die-hard soldier, a great leader, a loving father, a doting husband and a social activist, Colonel Rinchen continues to inspire the following generations of Indian warriors and Ladakhi youth alike. With two Mahavir Chakras, one Sena Medal and a Mentioned-in-Dispatches, he stands tall amongst the highest decorated soldiers of India.
