From: Sanjeev Nayyar \
The Indian soldier, the guardian of our frontiers and the custodian of peace, is a role model for the people of India. He is the epitome of courage and unflinching devotion to duty. More than any other group or community in the country, the Indian soldier embodies and represents the idea of India.
From the snow-clad and wind-swept mountains of the Himalayas in the north, to the steaming hot and humid jungles of the seven sisters in the north-east and the shimmering sands of the burning Thar Desert in the west, he never lowers his guard. Along the LoC, he braves daily spells of intermittent small arms and mortar fire from the enemy. Sometimes he lives through many days of heavy artillery shelling when the very earth around him shakes ominously.
Despite the omnipresent danger, hardships and privations of life on the nation's troubled frontiers, he stands tall and firm. Stoic and resolute, his courage never wavers, his spirit never flags. When the situation so demands, he makes the supreme sacrifice without flinching. For our tomorrow, he smilingly gives his today.
The Indian soldier is worthy of our support. Let us contribute generously to his welfare and to the welfare of our Veterans. It would be a noble gesture on our part to contribute to welfare funds designed to help disabled soldiers, some of whom are boarded out, and to the families of our martyred soldiers.
You can help in two ways. 1. Army Central Welfare Fund (only individuals can donate 100% tax exemption). 2. Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre, Pune. (individuals+corporates can donate, tax exemption under 80G is 50%).
