Encouraging the Chiefs of the three Services to adopt this tradition, he envisioned such celebrations becoming integral to India’s cultural fabric, spanning diverse terrains from the snowy peaks of Kargil to the scorching plains of Rajasthan and even the deep seas where submarines are stationed.

In a solemn tribute to fallen heroes, Rajnath Singh laid a wreath at the War Memorial in Leh, honoring the brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the nation.
