Mangaluru: Excellent Educational Institutions, Moodabidri, celebrated the “Kargil Vijay Diwas” under the programme titled “Yodhare Nimagido Namana”, here on Saturday, July 27, commemorating the supreme sacrifice of the brave soldiers who were martyred and severely injured in the ‘Operation Vijay’ of Kargil War 1999.

Chief guest of the programme ex-servicemen Gopalkrishna Kanchodu addressed the student gathering and said, “One must work with utmost interest and must not feel disinterested. The only reason for the army personnel to serve and protect the country in the unforgiving conditions is only because of love and passion towards their work.”

Speaking on the occasion Advocate Shanti Prasad Hegde said, “Protecting the country should not only be the priority of a soldier but should be the responsibility of all. To serve and protect the country, one need not be a soldier. If you have qualities of freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh and others, your mind will always be ready to serve the country.”

Secretary of Excellent Educational Institutions, Rashmita Yuvaraj Jain said, “The bravery showcased by our soldiers in the Kargil War shall be a role model to all and inspiration as well. Soldiers who protect us and our country and help us lead a peaceful life, are our ‘real heroes.’

Meanwhile, ex-servicemen who had partaken in the Kargil War and nailed the enemies, Chandappa D S was felicitated. An amount of Rs 18000 that was collected on behalf of the college was handed over to Chandappa.

Chandappa gave a call to all the youth to serve the nation and join the Indian Army.
