A little late on this post but, then too… On 15th Jan every year Indian Army celebrates the “Army day” in the memory of glorious moment when Lieutenant General (later Field Marshal) K. M. Cariappa’s taking over as the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army from General Sir Francis Butcher, the last British Commander-in-Chief of India, on 15 January 1949.
From this day we were independent in true sense cause from this day only we India on a whole got ropes to protect itself. From that day the valor, courage and selfless service of Indian Army is seen as and example of Duty and Pride !
Salute to the Indian Army !
Jai Hind !
