India celebrates Army Day on January 15 every year to honour the sacrifices of soldiers, who have served the nation selflessly and set a significant example of brotherhood. It is a day of national pride and to remember the selfless service and valour of the brave jawans.
On this day in 1949, General KM Cariappa took over as Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army and hence, the day is significant in the history of independent India.
The Indian Army was established in 1895 but it was running without an Indian chief till the country got its independence from British rule. On 15 January 1949, General KM Cariappa became the first Indian to take charge of the Army. He took over the charge from General Francis Butcher, who was the last British commander of the national army. The historic day is celebrated with patriotic zeal at all Army Command Headquarters.
However, this year, the day will be celebrated amid strict protocols due to the ongoing third wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
