A thread on the new recruitment scheme, #Agniveer, which is about to be adopted by the #IndianArmy.

Long detailed #Thread.
Before reading this thread, I request you to give a conscious read to this excellent piece by @realkaypius…
The entire ideology of the #IndianArmy (#indianairforce and #IndianNavy) is based on three words, 'Naam-Namak-Nishaan'.
'Naam' of the regiment;
'Namak' of the country; &
'Nishaan' of Bharat.
This invokes the sense of esprit de corps, loyalty and cohesion between the troops.

Divers are amongst the most elite of all sailors and soldiers. A tough selection process and tougher day to day environment? Which are the different diving units in India?

#IndianNavy #IndianArmy #IndianCoastGuard

[01] Unsurprisingly the Indian Navy has the largest, most experienced and well equipped diving cadre in the country. Navy divers are also the talent pool for MARCOS special forces.

Navy divers, and in fact divers across all services are graduates of the elite Diving School at Kochi.

Today is 60th year of celebration of Operation Vijay

Operation Vijay (1961) was the successful operation conducted by Indian Armed Forces to end 450 years of #Portuguese’ colonial rule in #Goa
When the Portuguese refused to give up control of the state in 1947 India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, started trying different non-violent ways to resolve the issue. But all his efforts of peaceful and diplomatic negotiations were rendered useless. #GoaLiberationDay
In 1955, he imposed an economic blockade on #Goa but even that did not deter the #Portuguese power to leave the #Indian soil. So in 1961, Mr Nehru decided that there was no alternative option left for military intervention.

आज #SwarnimVijayDiwas, आजच्या दिवशी ७१' च्या लढाईत आपल्या सैन्या ने पाकिस्तान ला धु धु धुतले. त्या बद्दल थोडं माझ्या कडून, माझ्या पद्धती ने.
आपण युद्ध जिंकलो खरे, पण हे १३ दिवसांचे युद्ध अचानक सुरु झाले नाही, त्या साठी आधी पासून गडबड सुरु होती.
एप्रिल मध्येच इंदिरा गांधी ह्यांनी General #Manekshaw ह्यांना सैन्याच्या युद्ध तयारी बद्दल विचारले होते. Sam Baba तेवढाच खमका, येणारा पावसाळा आणि त्या मुळे होणारी दलदल त्यात रणगाडे फसतील, आणि armored support शिवाय युद्धास चोख नकार दिला, तयारी साठी वेळ मागितला.
