There are a manifold of regiments in Indian Army – some of the regiments are very old and have been serving the nation redundantly from a very long period of time. In this ode, we have discussed about three of those regiments actually.

There are a swam of pledged regiments in Indian Army. Some of them were raised in 18th century. We must know yet contemplate about their pat aptitudes to yield them proper awe and respect. In this benevolent ode (a fruit of inquisition and exploration), we are going to ejaculate you about three of those regiments actually:

Punjab Regiment: 

Lakshya, Border films are the evident cases of deliberate fictional works definitely. Yet they are not delusions, spoofed modalities at all. They comprise, entrap the respiration, the simmering smudge of the true pulsating activities of the real resilient heroes of the allegiant alignment, called Punjab Regiment, accordance to the several seams of history.

The robust, zesty, wary warrior of this sumptuous, pompous entity are always prepared yet determined to deter and not to let off the adversaries of India yet deterge them completely yet comprehensively. This candid, erosion less regiment is con of defeat and pro of conquest always.

We have discerned, validated and adjudged their potent, infallible faculties for several times. Yes, as per their disposition, they always engross their selves to evoke the astonishing prefaces and all the dilutions of the explicit glorious victories through gorges.

Nobody can cope with these daredevils, they always numb their enemies.

Here is the muster of the strive prides they acquired –

1) Sholinghur, Carnatic, Mysore, Mehidpore, Ava, China, Pegu, Lucknow, Burma, Afghanistan, Laos, Flanders, Hellis, Krithia, Gallipoli, Suez, Egypt, Sharon, Nablus, Palestine, Aden, Kut-al-Amara, Baghdad, Mesopotamia, North Western Frontier, Mersa Metruh, Buthidaung, Ngakyedauk Pass, Imphal, Kangla Tongbi, Tonzang, Kennedy Peak, Meiktila, pyinmana, Malaya, Ipoh, Singapore, Kern and Casa Bettini. (PRE-INDEPENDENCE).

2) Zoji La, Ichhogil, Dograi, Barki, Kalidhar, Bedori, Nangi Tekri, Brachil Pass, Laungewala, Garibpur,Chak Amaru , Jessore. (POST- INDEPENDENCE).

Jo Bole So Nihal, Sat Sri Akal (He who cries God is Truth, is Ever Happy) – is the war cry of this regiment.

They cribbed these decorations – 1 Padma Shri, 2 Padma Bhushan, 2 Uttam Yudh Seva Medal, 5 Yudh Seva Medal, 8 Param Vishisht Seva Medal, 10 Ati Vishisht Seva Medal, 12 Kirti Chakras, 18 Maha Vir Chakras , 33 Vishisht Seva Medal, 56 Shaurya Chakras, 59 Victoria Crosses, 277 Sena Medals.

Maratha Light Infantry:

Yes, they don’t cling on destined, kibosh yumlicious lives. They are piquantly different from skits. Each one of them is a fondest, ardent, avid courting of valour yet wise, trump – not precocious at all. They bon appetite for the inceptions of the sublime conquests – always .  They are the staple consuls, who take adequate paces to invoke peaces in our places actually. They are the selfless, scathing members of our very own eminent, transcendent Indian Army. We spilt them into different regiments; some of the regiments are very old (but not corny or obsolete) yet have been serving us redundantly from a very long period of time. Maratha Light Infantry is one of them. The senior most light infantry of the argentine alpine called Indian army, Maratha Light Infantry is raised in the year of 1768.

"Bol Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Ki Jai (Say Victory To King Shivaji)"  - is the strive cry of this regiment.

Maratha Light Infantry plays predominant, solemn roles to humiliate, dispirit the adversaries, it imposes them stigmas and demises too. That’s why it is embellished with these cases of pomposity – 1 ACCL||,1 Shaurya Chakra & Bar, 1 Padma Bhushan, 1 Arjun award, 2 Victoria Crosses, 3 Unit Citations, 4 Ashoka Chakras, 4 Maha Vir Chakras, 4 Kirti Chakras, 4 Yudh Seva Medal,4 ACCL|||, 10 Param Vishisht Seva Medal,14 Ati Vishisht Seva Medal,  18 Shaurya Chakras, 23 Vishisht Seva Medal,34 Vir Chakras, 107 Sena Medals.

The battle honours of this unadulterated, lusty, rocky regiment are Naushera, Jhangar, Burki, Hussainiwala, Jamalpur, Burj, Suadih, Ruywa.

Rajputana Rifles:

It was January, 1775 when the regal Rajputana Rifles was formed. It was the first rifle regiment of (British) Indian Army actually. In the battle of Khadki (1817) and second Afghan war (1878-1890) people saw the adequate glorious activities of this battalion. Captain J.A. Wood (of second battalion) won the first Victoria Cross for an Indian unit in the year of 1856 (the category of medals was not open for we Indians at that time, that’s why Subedar Peer Bhatt and Subedar Major Mohammed Sharief of Rajputana Rifles couldn’t acquire the Victoria Cross actually).  

In the First World War, these preceptors of fearless, rigid, lusty warriors of Rajputana Rifles fought a lot in the every sacred rim of the immaculate arenas of France and Palestine.

In the Second World War, the people of Burma, Malaya and Middle East saw the velour of Rajputana Rifles indeed.

This regiment (tallies with a carnal fence actually) has earned the bump rattle of - 1 Ashok Chakra, 1 Param Vir Chakra, 1 Padma Bhushan, 1 Uttam Yudh Seva Medal, 2 Yudh Seva Medals, six Victoria Crosses, 8 Kirti Chakras, 10 Maha Vir Chakras, 11 Ati Vishisht Seva Medals, 25 Shaurya Chakras, 36 Vishisht Seva Medals,41 Vir Chakras,55 Arjun Awards, 85 Mentions-in-Dispatches, 112 Sena Medals till now.

The battle honors are – Poonch, Charwa, Basantar, Myanamati.
