A SHOUT-OUT to SERVING as well as VETERAN SOLDIERS & their FAMILIES
All of us, irrespective of rank, service association (IA/IAF/IN) and regimental affiliations, have anecdotes, tales,
stories and experiences to share. Thanks to a massive landmass that makes India and due to profession-related movements,
service personnel and their families get to see and experience many things that remain out of bound or simply don’t fall
in the realm of possibilities for many of our country cousins. Such tales must be told to showcase any or multiple
perspectives of soldierly lives.
There are many who, because of their keen interests and hobbies, have the ability to dig deep into the historical events or analyse military situations as these may prevail around us and across the globe. All such talents must record what they discover during their forays into the fields of individual expertise.
Our children, as a community, form the most talented youth group in our nation. Each child has individual flair and aptitude. Those who have a gift with the pen (or keyboard), must be given an opportunity to showcase their work and put across their thoughts. Defence ladies, likewise, need to be given an opportunity to contribute through their writings.
Our Veterans are our source of inspiration. It is their duty to record their experiences to enable the future generations of Indian soldiers to read, get inspired and draw lessons from. This is possibly one of the noblest ways to give it back to the organisation that has given us our unique identity.
