  • Defence
    This category is a celebration of the men and women in uniform who have selflessly and bravely served India for 75 years, through three wars, in times of peace, when tragedies have struck - protecting our borders, our seas and our skies, our people, the very idea of India. Their countless inspiring acts of goodness are beyond rewards - they are duty for these men and women. And that is why we honour them all.
