Veer Lachit Diwas: Let's pay our respectful homage to the great commanderToday entire Assam and north-east have been remembering the great commander of Ahom force, Lachit Borphukan. He conclusive defeated Mughal forces supported by vassals of Mughals in the Battle of Saraighat (1671). Lachit Borphukan, supported by Atan Burhgohain, stopped the onward march of Mughals, to the eastern and north-eastern part of India. Honouring his contribution, Lachit Borphukan Gold Medal is given to the best passing-out cadet of National Defence Academy (NDA).
Earlier in May, 2017, I wrote a two-part article on this great military commander, but I have doubt whether any Member has read these two articles.
On Veer Lachit Diwas, I pay my respectful homage to the great warrior, who stopped the Mughals to enter the north-eastern part of India.
