Soldiers are the reason behind our happinessToday we are all safe in our country and able to sleep happily in our house. This has become possible due to the services that are being rendered by our soldiers who are protecting the country from evil forces from the neighbouring countries. Soldiers are the human form of Sacrifice. They sacrificed their family and lives to safeguard the country and protect the people of the country 24 X 7.
General KM Cariappa took over as the in charge of the Indian Army from British General Sir Francis Butcher on January 15 in 1949. That is why this day is celebrated as Indian Army Day every year. This year due to COVID 19 special parades and celebrations are not there.
Let us not forget to pay our respects to the veterans and soldiers who lost their lives while safeguarding the country. My respects to all the soldiers and I hope all the members of ISC will join with me in saluting these people.
