About Bhuj The Pride Of India
The airstrip at Bhuj in Gujarat does not survive the devastating hit it takes during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. It leaves India vulnerable and defenseless against all other possible attacks in the future. IAF squadron leader Vijay Karnik and his team take it upon themselves to reconstruct the base from the rubble and give India even a fighting chance to stand its ground. It’s a herculean task, and likely impossible, but when the women of Madhapur near Bhuj announce their voluntary effort to help, Karnik and his team find a flicker of hope in their resilience.
Together, Karnik, his team and the 300 women of Bhuj set the aristrip to rights, building it after toiling day and night to stand tall. India declares victory in the war, but it would not have been possible were it not for the valiant efforts of the women in Bhuj to give the country a bleak but a fighting chance that then strengthened into the spirit of the country.
