New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: India on Friday observed Army Day 2021 in honour of the soldiers and jawans of the Indian Army who laid down their lives on the line of duty. Army Day is observed on January 15 every year because it was this day in 1949 when General KM Cariappa took over the charge of Indian Army from British General Sir Francis Butcher.

On this day, special parades are being organised by the Indian Army to salute its veterans and soldiers who lost their lives on the line of duty. Gallantry awards and Sena medals are also awarded on this day. This year, the celebrations for Army Day have taken a hit because of the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, people are advised to stay inside their homes and maintain social distancing. However, you need not worry as you can still share these messages, wishes and quotes with veterans and soldiers of the Indian Army to thank them for their selfless service to the country.
