Param Vir Chakra is India’s highest military honour and a simple translation translates the words to ‘Wheel of the Ultimate Brave’. The designer of this honour has a Swiss connection. The lady to whom it is credited was born Eve Yvonne Maday de Maros in Neuchatel and later owing to her marriage to the Indian Army Captain Vikram Ramji Khanolkar, she changed her name to Savitri Bai Khanolkar.
