After the destruction of the Air Base, Base Commander Vijay Karnik took command of the Bhuj airport. However, due to the lack of enough manpower, 300 women from Madhapur village, located near the camp, were called for help.  The women worked tirelessly without caring about PAF strikes and within 72 hours they created a new runway from scratch.
