This Republic Day , our soldiers on the wheelchairs, who are presently residing at the Army’s Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre in Mohali, had a day out with their families to the DLF Mall, specifically for watching URI movie. This movie time for the soldiers by the DLF City Centre Mall, IT Park, Chandigarh.
Apart from the movie, the soldiers and their families also had lunch at the mall, followed by some more moments of enjoyment and recreation in form of fun games, dance performances by NGO kids which was further complemented with the gracious presence of many senior officials from the Armed Forces inclusive of Rtd. Lt. General K.J.Singh, presently working as the Advisor to the CM, along with Major General Mann, ADG at the NCC Directorate along with other senior officials from all the three forces inclusive of army, navy and air force.
Some of the most heartening moments of these celebrations were the dance performance by our soldiers on the wheelchairs which made all the general public go spellbound. Lastly to express our gratitude to the soldiers, where a social media campaign was organized to involve the participation of general public, letters were invited from students, youth, teachers, corporate professionals and all which was further taken up more aggressively, by themselves making people write and handover letters to their team and then few selective letters were read out in front of the senior defence officials.
Lastly some letters were even sent to the soldiers at the LOC through the J & K Study Centre.
