Army men are the real heroes, as Capt. Vikram Batra, PVC once said, “Either I will come back after hoisting the tricolour, or I will come back wrapped in it, but I will be back for sure.” Nothing can ever match with the sacrifice the hero of our country make to keep us happy.
When we enjoy our days and holidays with our friends and family, the Indian Army stand tall in the harshest of conditions. Whether it be the disregard freezing cold temperatures or scorching heat, they always remain brave, awake just to keep us secure and safe.
Hence, to honour our country’s soldiers Army Day is celebrated. Army Day is celebrated on January 15 every year, to commemorate the day when (then) Lieutenant General KM Cariappa took over General Sir Francis Butcher as Commander-in-Chief of India on January 1949. This year, the Indian Army will celebrate 72nd Army Day.
