Veterans come back for sri lanka war memorial
Army chief who ordered attack is to be given a posthumous pension
For the 카지노 사이트first time, an Indian soldier has been awarded the second-highest decoration for valour at a ceremony at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
Lt Gen Vijay S. Sanyal — who led Indian forces on the „first and most important night“ in Indo-Pakistani war after the 1967 ceasefire — was recognized for his actions that night.
A stately hall in the capital, New Delhi, hosted the ceremony to recognise an „innovator, war hero“ for his „brave and indefatigable heroism and integrity.“
„No matter what the circumstances, one soldier and one sacrifice was enough for your country. You did it with grace, with honour and without fear,“ the Chief Minister of Kashmir, Muhammad Ali Jammu Kashmir, said at the event, which honoured the Indian Army’s „heroic sacrifice during the first and most important night of the ongoing conflict,“ in which more than 50,000 people died.
‚Shakhar‘ wins prestigious Indian military award
India’s highest award is the country’s first „shakhar,“ or valor award, made public to honour a soldier. It is awarded in two installments in five months.
The Shakhar, known as Rajiv Gandhi Shakhar Maharaj, was the first Indian soldier to lose an arm during fighting with Pakistan after a botched Indian airlift of arms that had failed in April 1971.
It was awarded to the same ma바카라n during a ceremony on September 8, 1971, the fifth anniversary of the ceasefire, and he was given a posthumous medal of merit.

It was the first time a war-time hero was given the’shakhar‘ and it was awarded by the army chief, whose troops had been forced to withdraw from the front line because of a lull in the fighting.
As the last of the troops fled the village after it was overrun, the Pakistani army ordered artillery fire. He fled, kill우리카지노ed two of the three soldiers following his firing, and fled across the Doklam plateau, cutting off the main supply route to the Indian troops.
In an apparent reference to his actions at the time, Jammu Kashmir’s Chief Minister said it was important for the state to honor Shakhar’s sacrifice.
