Today is Kargil Vijay Diwas, and people all around the country are celebrating it (July 26). The day is significant in Indian history because it honours all the slain troops of the Indian Army who fought valiantly in the Kargil War to reclaim the Kargil peaks from Pakistani infiltrators.
Bhartiya Airways celebrated this year's Kargil diwas with Dainik Jagran Shaurya Samaan program, which aims to pay homage to the brave Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives for India during the Kargil War. Lt Gen Nitin Kohli was the chief guest of the event. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to him. We also invited the family members of the martyred soldiers, who became very emotional during the event.
Bhartiya Airways always believed that every citizen must remember those who have died for our country. The display of emotions by the people for the martyrs' families only helps to boost the morale of our defence forces. This is just a start after receiving a tremendous response to the event, we have decided to organise various programmes for retired army officers and martyrs of our defence force.
It's always fascinating to hear the courageous stories of our soldiers. With these programmes, Bhartiya Airways is aiming to give some counselling & life lessons to younger generations because our defence system is the best institution which gives important values such as discipline, proper planning & strategy, determination & sacrifice. These values are important to every young citizen who is starting out to make their career.
Finally, we should all remember the great efforts and sacrifices done by the Indian Armed Forces in protecting our nation.
