    When we enjoy our days and holidays with our friends and family, the Indian Army stand tall in the harshest of conditions. Whether it be the disregard freezing cold temperatures or scorching heat, they always remain brave, awake just to keep us secure and safe.

    Hence, to honour our country’s soldiers Army Day is celebrated. Army Day is celebrated on January 15 every year, to commemorate the day when (then) Lieutenant General KM Cariappa took over General Sir Francis Butcher as Commander-in-Chief of India on January 1949. This year, the Indian Army will celebrate 72nd Army Day.

    Cariappa, fondly known as Kipper, was only 49 when he took charge of the army. He served as army chief for a full four years, retiring on January 16, 1953.

    During the partition, he played a key role in reaching an amicable settlement for the division of the army between India and Pakistan. He was then a member of the army sub-committee of the Forces Reconstitution Committee.

    He was elevated to the five-star rank of Field Marshal in April 1986, in recognition of his distinguished military service. Only three military officers have held the five-star rank: Cariappa, Marshal of the Indian Air Force Arjan Singh and Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.

    Indian Army Day 2020: Significance

    The Army Day is celebrated every year at all Army Command headquarters to honour our country’s soldiers who set the greatest example of selfless service and brotherhood, and above all, love for the country. The Indian Army is one of the most powerful militaries of the world, competing with superpowers like the US, Russia and China.

    Indian Army Day 2020: Motto

    The motto of the Indian Army is ‘service before self’ and its mission is to ensure national security and national unity, defend the nation from external aggression and internal threats, and maintain peace and security within its borders.
