MODERN HISTORY OF INDIAN ARMY
India has been ruled over by several foreign kingdoms but her interests and borders were always secured by the sons of the soil. Even under the British rule, role was different but still these brave men were there for the nation but not in uniform. Feeling of nation and sacrifice for the soil made every indian a solider who fought against the british rule for the soil. Britishes organised army completely on a foreign pattern, designed to suit their ends in the country and to fight their battles in other countries that dont have any thing to do with india. The Indian National Army (INA) or Azad Hind Fauj was found by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose with the assistance of Japanese army .Indian National Army (INA) was formed with an aim to liberate India from the clutch of British people . It was initially composed of Indian prisoners of war captured by Japan in the Malayan campaign and at Singapore and later drew the direct assistance of thousands of Indian living in Myanmar. The INA also was at the forefront of women`s equality and the formation of a women`s regiment, the Rani of Jhansi regiment was formed as an all volunteer women`s unit to fight the British occupiers as well as provide medical services to the INA.

Partition of India in 1947 has created Pakistan a permanent enemy to India , who always look to disturb india with villainous activities . Redcliff line denotes the boundary between India and Pakistan . After the 69 years of independence the issue of kashmir is still unresolved and pakistan claim for Kashmir is still in vain . Pakistan always got denied by the international agencies on the issue of Kashmir and always uses foul activities in form of terrorist against india. We have fought four battles against Pakistan and every time they have to run away from the battle field.Indo-Pakistani War of 1947 (First war of Kashmir),Indo-Pakistani War of 1965( Operation Gibraltar),Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 (Bangladesh Liberation War) and Indo-Pakistani War of 1999 (Kargil war).The Siachen glacier is the world’s highest battlefield, at 21,000 feet. Soldiers are taught to survive first and then fight. Soldiers are trained at Siachen Battle School for three weeks in icecraft before they go there.Incidents like pathankot , Uri , J&k and etc where we have lost many soldiers as a martyrs will only make every indian parents to proud on their son.
Soldiers never off from the duty , as a soldier nation come first and then regiment and if anything left then family. Soldiers are the real hero of the nation , we dont know them and even they dont know to us but what they know that we all are Indians and as a soldier nation come first for them.Indian Army is the most trusted organisation in India. Progress of any nation can only be possible when its boundary is safe and secure . Everyday and night with a lots of pain these soldiers sever with a smile . We all salute these brave hearts for their sacrifices and making us to live in a pleasant and safe environment.
