The army wing of the Southern Command has decided to go beyond routine Independence Day celebrations

  • The army wing of the Southern Command has decided to go beyond routine Independence Day celebrations and will be involving citizens this year. The army wing has arranged a special display of a wide array of military equipment, weapons and demonstrations on how emergency bridges are made. The display will be arranged on August 14 and 15, with the first half of August 14 especially reserved for school students. Brigadier Dheeraj Mohan, from the Southern Command Army Wing, said, “We carry out routine Independence Day celebrations every year. But, it is important to engage with civilians and make them aware about our work. This is the first time we are arranging activities on Independence Day for civilians.” The equipment on display would be artillery tanks, combat vehicles, bunkers, armoured personal carriers, anti-aircraft guns, radar, aircrafts and other kinds of guns. Apart from the equipment, models of emergency roads and bridges would also be displayed. The event has been organised at the Central Armoured Fighting Vehicle Depot (CAFVD) Khadki. Mohan added, “At our first rehearsal on August 9, we will be invit-ing schools from all the cantonments and the entire Pune Municipal Corporation area. Army officials and jawans will be present at the venue to give information to civilians on the equipment on display. We would talk to civilians about the applicability of different army equipment and share our field experiences with them. Our aim is to give the public a taste of army life from close quarters.” Amol Jagtap, CEO of the Khadki Cantonment Board (KCB), said, “A special show has been arranged by the army and the KCB at the Khadki sports stadium in the evenings. The army will perform gymnastics, malkhamb, dog shows and harmony band shows for KCB residents.” Roystan Sequira, a resident of Camp, said, “My son is in Class VIII and wants to join the army. It would be a good opportunity for him to see all this equipment and have an interaction with real army personnel.” Abhi Adasu, a resident of Khadki, said, “There is always a natural curiosity about the army. We merely see all those tanks and artillery on TV. This kind of exhibition should be arranged every year.” ¬†We’ll talk to civilians about the applicability of different equipment and share our field experiences with them
