Warriors in olive green uniforms
Our nation is blessed with heroes who are always ready to protect us from every possible threat. The Indian Army has repeatedly proved, and I am proud to say that we are in safe hands.
The valorous soldiers have shown their fearless battle skills in every necessary situation and have been present as a caring helping hand.
These protectors are honored for their indomitable bravery and extreme courage on 15th January every year.
In 1949, Lt. Gen K. M. Cariappa took over as the first Commander in Chief of the Indian Army after the last British Commander in Chief.
Here is a list of 5 successful operations undertaken by our audacious force:
- Six terrorists attacked the Pathankot IAF airbase on January 2, 2016.
- NSG forces were deployed to control the hostage crisis.
- The army combat specialist fought for three straight days in very complicated situations as the area was very close to family quarters.
- Calibrated use of minimum firepower and excellent tactics were the abilities shown at the battleground.

- The operation was codenamed Dhangu to pay respect to the village name where the airbase is located.

Myanmar Surgical Strike
- On June 9, 2015, the Indian Army successfully operated the surgical battle in Myanmar.

- The mission operation was a win and the fastest in Asian invasion history.
- The operation was part of Operation Hifazat in the Nagaland-Manipur-Arunachal Pradesh border area.
Our Army is first in the category of volunteered forces in the whole world.
Also, despite being the biggest importer of weapons in the Asian Market, our Army has never invaded or attacked a country to take control.
The Indian Army is the second biggest support and first in instant relief operations in the whole world. The brave men and women in the Indian army stay away from their families and miss every significant happening in their life to give us all a peaceful sleep at night.
We salute each and every soldier for their sacrifices and altruism for the country.
I can’t describe an Indian soldier better than this:
“If death strikes before I prove my blood, I swear I’ll kill Death.”
