As part of the Infantry Day Celebration 2017, for the first time this year a mega event showcasing the martial traditions and extraordinary marching skills with arms by the Infantry soldiers is being organized on 28 Oct 17 from 5:00pm onwards at the lawns of the iconic 'India Gate'. Infantry Day has historic relevance, as on 27 Oct 1947 Indian troops first landed at Srinagar to thwart Pakistan's attempt to severe Kashmir. This event "Veerta Ka Prateek" is a tribute to the Infantry soldiers. During the three hour extravaganza, teams from various Regiments belonging to different regions across India will display spectacular precision 'Continuity Drill' and various martial arts from all parts of the country. As a tribute to our Unsung Heroes, renowned singers and famous choreographer will also perform on the occasion. Entry is open and all are welcome to witness the event.
