Every year, January 15 is celebrated as Army Day in India. It was on this day in 1949 that Field Marshal KM Cariappa took over the command of Indian Army from the last British Commander-in-Chief, General Sir Francis Bucher. Field Marshal KM Cariappa became the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army after independence and the nation celebrates to mark this remarkable day.
When we think about the Indian Army, our first thought is about the sacrifices that our soldiers and officers make to keep us safe. And it's not just them, their families too deserve equal respect. From living separately to constantly moving around and living in fear during unfavourable conditions, Army families face their own bit of challenges. However, we have to agree that it makes them stronger individuals, more confident and well-travelled. Of course, they end up with friends all over India!
