71ST ARMY DAY: Saluting the Guardians

Army Day is observed on January 15 in India. On this day in 1949, Field Marshal Kodandera M Cariappa took over as the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army from General Sir Francis Butcher, the last British Commander-in-Chief. The celebrations in Delhi begin by paying tributes to the martyred soldiers at the Amar Jawan Jyoti at India Gate. 

From praising the Army's valor to paying homage to the soldiers who lost their life, people have showered love and respect on the Indian Army through their twitter handles.
