The Indian army needs no introduction. We all have love, respect and admiration for our soldiers and the Indian army in general. As we all know, the Indian army has a long and glorious history. It’s hard to talk about everything in such a limited space. I still tried to touch all the main points and also tried to speak with all my heart. I hope you appreciate my efforts and tests.
Every time I think of the Indian army (I also wanted to be a soldier), I feel happy. I think we are fortunate to have an institution that we can really be proud of.
An ordinary person knows very little about the Indian army because most objects are classified. Still, there is enough information in the public domain.
At the next trial of the Indian army, I tried to put all this information here and also gave my point of view. I hope that the next test in the Indian army will be appreciated and appreciated by you.
The Indian Armed Forces are divided into three parts: the Indian army, the Indian air force and the Indian navy. The Indian army is the ground unit, while the Indian air force deals with air defense and the Indian army is the naval unit. Our Indian army is the second largest in the world with approximately 1.23 million registered soldiers and 9.6 million lakhs in reserves.
The Indian army is primarily responsible for protecting the country from ground attack. It also helps other agencies fight terrorism, deal with emergencies in the country and help people in case of natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, etc.
The Chief of Staff of the Army (COAS) is currently General Bipin Rawat (since 2018). As the Indian army is very large, it is divided into regiments. Some important regiments are the Punjab Regiment, the Madras Regiment, the Rajputana Rifles, the Sikh Regiment, etc. It also has its own intelligence unit, known as “Military Intelligence” or “MI.”
The Indian army before independence (under British rule) had participated in both world wars. After independence, he also fought numerous wars in his own right, such as the Kargil War (1999), the Bangladesh Liberation War (1971), the India-Pakistan War (1965), the India-China War (1962) and The First Kashmir War (1947). In addition to this, the Indian army has also handled minor conflicts such as the Siachen conflict (1984), Operation Polo (1948), the India-China conflict (1967), etc.
There is no doubt that our Indian army is one of the best in the world.
To ask the importance of the Indian army in India is to ask the importance of the heart in a human body. It would not be bad to say that there would be no India without the Indian army. It is the backbone of the country. It is also one of the few remaining institutions in the country that can be considered completely neutral and reliable. If something is really wrong in the country, we turn to the military for solutions, whether fighting riots, fighting insurgency, fighting terrorism, fighting Naxalites and even getting medals at international sporting events.
Importance of the Indian army
The main role of the Indian army is, of course, to defend our country against external and internal threats. He has tested himself several times. After independence, he led five major wars and also resolved many smaller conflicts. He fought and won even when his enemies possessed superior weapons.
For example, in 1965, Pakistan owned Patton tanks (offered by the United States). They were considered invincible at that time. India had nothing that could match these Patton tanks. However, the Indian army managed to defeat the Pakistani tanks during the battle of Asal Uttar.
Havildar Abdul Hamid, a single man, easily destroyed six Pakistani tanks with his rifle without recoil and died trying to destroy the seventh. For this, he was rewarded with the highest military honor in India: the Param Vir Chakra. It is believed that the Americans came to India to learn the method and equipment by which their invincible Patton tanks were destroyed. It is believed that India rejected his request.
