"We know that in conflict, there is the only outcome that is a victory."
"Jung ka Ek hi usul hai, vo hai jeet." - Late CDS General Bipin Rawat
One of the reasons behind every victory, and happiness of the nation is the selfless nature of our Army who is always standing by us constantly. We are surrounded by various visible and invisible enemies that never miss a chance to threaten our freedom and sovereignty. The mighty Indian Army keeps protecting and helping us to lead a peaceful livelihood.
British established the Indian army in 1895 and its legacy was transferred to independent India in 1947. The induction of India's first Commander-in-Chief General KM Cariappa on January 15, 1949, set in motion a new direction and vision to this world’s second-largest army.
I always found a strong relationship between the work values of the Indian Army and Deepalaya. Both organizations consider integrity, selflessness, and sacrifice as motivation to keep the impact intact.
Whether our soldiers are on the battlefield or off the field, they always inspire us to move forward and challenge our enemies, and believe in triumph. Can we ever forget the helping hands of our soldiers during tough times like these?. We should be proud of this institution's par excellence, always aiming high with its rich traditions and values.
In 2021, Deepalaya has set up an academy named “Jai Jawan Raksha Academy” in collaboration with the CPL, Jhajjar Power Limited, Haryana. This academy aims to prepare aspiring youth in the region for employment opportunities in the Indian Armed Forces. Within three months of its beginning, we have nearly 50 students enrolled with the dream of serving this great nation.
As an organization, we are committed to helping and supporting the youth of this country to be disciplined and committed like our armed forces. There is a great role that Indian corporates and NGOs can play together in making this happen. We are looking forward to new partners reaching out to us and working together in building a great future for our children and youth.
