Amid coronavirus scare across the country and beyond, one thing which is quite relieving and to a large extent is helping to alleviate miseries of people is that Indian army is standing tall against all odds be it enemies of the nation at the borders, terror perpetrators inside the country, weather vagaries, and now the lethal corona mayhem. It is somehow miraculous and unbelievable that despite confronting with adversaries at multiple fronts, our valiant soldiers always come out with flying colours decimating their enemies in a most befitting manner. Considering the magnitude of its contribution towards people here, the newly created Union Territory 0f Jammu and Kashmir is the real and genuine ‘Karambhoomi’ of army wherein its personnel lay maximum stress in providing succor to residents without even caring about the safety of their lives. Starting from befitting retaliation given to habitual ceasefire violator, the rogue Pakistan, or eliminating terrorists in hundreds, providing awareness on education, health & hygiene, skill development programmes, rescuing people from flood-hit regions and evacuating landslide victims to creating world class edifice for fighting effectively coronavirus are few of the multitude of responsibilities which the army fulfills gladly. Substantiating the fact, on March 29, the army rescued 43 persons of five families after their homes were damaged by a landslide in Baramulla area of J&K. The rescued people were shifted to a safer location and were provided with relief material at Uplona Army Camp. In a similar endeavour, army jawans helped 24 labourers after they reached near Poonch by foot from Kashmir, trekking the snow-clad high altitude passes over the past two days and provided them medical facility and necessary instructions with regard to coronavirus contagion. Later they escorted them to quarantine facility established at Surankote for undergoing the required quarantine. The army units spread across the union territory are also organizing number of awareness camps to educate general masses especially those living in far-off belts about precautions and risks associated with COVID-19 and also bust the myths regarding corona which are being spread by unscrupulous elements by misusing social media platforms. In nutshell, there is no other organization whatsoever in the country and for that matter in the entire world which can match the credentials of Indian Army. It is simply the best unique force with a strong and glorious resolve to address the aspirations of all the Indians by upholding righteousness, truth and steadfastness through its gallant men and lately women also.
