Remembering the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the motherland, a Facebook group 'Fauji dil ki baatein' organised a special program for the Army soldiers in New Delhi. Ex-Army Officer Navin Gulia and Retd Major Rakesh Sharma were the special guests of the program.
Ex-Army officer Navin Gulia, who was declared 'permanently disabled' at the age of just 22, following an injury he had sustained during his final days of training at Indian Military Academy, is an epitome of courage and resilience.
