A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a small speech on the topic ‘Defence Day’.
Defense days of various countries are celebrated on different days. Do you know when India’s Defense day is celebrated? It is observed on the 3rd of March every year.
Why was this particular date chosen? Because it holds significance with regard to the Armed Forces of India.
The Sudanese Government in 1941 gave India’s governor general a thousand pounds during World War II to build a war memorial in commemoration of the sacrifices made by Indian soldiers in the liberation of Sudan during the East Africa campaign. In 1946, Joint Service Military Academy was established. On October 6th, 1949, Nehru finally laid the foundation for the National Defence Academy.
This day is to raise awareness of civil protection. Let us all commemorate our Indian Army, Navy, and Air Forces today!
