Armed Forces Flag Day Friday, Dec 07, 2018
Little it is known that on 7th December every year we celebrate Armed Forces Flag Day.
India Army is one of the oldest armies in the world with formation of its units dating back to 1750’s. Majority of its units and regiments have traditions that date even further. Even until today the Indian Army follows its traditions and yet embraces modernity. Indian army is the 2nd largest army in the world. It is one of the largest contributors in United Nations Peacekeeping Force and ever-ready to protect its citizens during natural calamities and unrests.
Historically it has been observed that strong armies have become ambitious and taken over their nations, thus questioning democratic nature and curtailing fundamental rights of its citizens. Between 1950 till date we have witnessed 231 successful coups with majority occurring in African continent followed by Asia. Majority of our neighboring countries have experienced coups multiple times thus creating instability in the region. Socio-Economic Research implies that coups lower the growth of income per person by as much as 1.3% a year over a decade. Despite being surrounded by such volatility Indian army has always remained away from politics.
The Armed Forces live by a code which states - The safety, honor and welfare of your country comes first, always and every time. The honor, welfare and comfort of the men you command come next. Your own ease, comfort and safety come last, always and every time. It is inspiring to even read these lines, let alone live them. Our Armed Forces are on a mission to protect the citizens of India from enemies, natural disasters and whatever else may come our way.
