The real-life heroes are soldiers 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.”

When we had a wonderful day and vacation with friends and family, the Indian army stood up in the worst conditions. Whether they ignore low or high temperatures, they are always brave and awake, just to ensure our safety.

Therefore, in honor of the soldiers of our country, Army Day was celebrated. The Army Day is celebrated on January 15 each year to commemorate the day in 1949 January, when Lieutenant General KM Cariappa replaced  General Sir Francis Butcher as Commander-in-Chief of India. This year, the Indian Army will celebrate the 72nd Army Day.
