What Is It?
The 17th anniversary of the Kargil war is a great opportunity to remind ourselves about the challenges the armed forces of our country face every single day of their lives, and pay tribute to the heroes we lost during the war. Head to India Gate this Saturday to celebrate their indomitable spirit and courage, despite the perpetual risk of losing their lives.
Who Is It For?
Everyone. Regardless of what you do, this is your chance to commemorate the various personnel who lost their lives during the Kargil war.
Why Should I Go For It?
An interesting and engaging line-up of activities has been planned to commemorate the special occasion. Head to India Gate on 23 July, where the Chairman of Select CITYWALK will place a wreath on the war memorial as a mark of respect to the soldiers. Accompanying him would be 250 students from Army Public School who will carry banners and placards to mark the occasion. Be sure to check out their flash mob, and witness the various war cries of the different regiments of our armed forces.
If heading to India Gate seems difficult, fret not, because you can always head to CITYWALK for another dose of patriotism. With soulful performances, poignant speeches and video films lined up, we're sure that this evening will be truly poignant and memorable, not just for you, but also for the rest of the dignitaries present, including armed personnel and family members of the martyrs.
A book memoir on the life of Vikram Batra will also be a major highlight of the evening, so make sure you do not miss it.
Made out of 80,000 pieces of ornamental bullets and bullet shells, the twenty feet installation of Amar Sipahi is sure to attract a lot of attention at the event.
