This Video about the Indian Army’s past 100 Years Will Give You Goosebumps

The Indian Army is justifiably famous for its legendary discipline, professionalism, and bravado. For more than a 100 years — when the men of the army first fought in World War I — they have been doing India proud.

But their greatest contribution, their incredible gift to over a billion countrymen, is perhaps that they allow us to live our dreams, to follow our passions without fear. Sometimes, the cost of this gift is their lives.

Siachen – the highest battlefield on earth

From having successfully defended India in a number of wars to the liberation of Bangladesh and the capturing of Siachen (the world’s highest battlefield!), our soldiers have reminded us time and again what a superlative defence force looks like. Even today, when the enemy in the form of terrorism is faceless and constantly shifting and the battlefields are our very cities, the Indian Army isn’t letting us down.

The army has also been part of United Nations peacekeeping missions in as many as 7 different countries, helping secure the lives of people around the globe.

The army is also most often the fastest responder during times of national emergency.

During crises such as the floods in Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir, and Chennai, or even the earthquake in neighbouring Nepal, the army has helped rebuild the lives of thousands of people.
