Vidya Bharati Alumni pays homage to SamManekshaw, the First Field Marshal of India Who Made 90000 Pakistani Soldiers Surrender in the 1971 Indo-Pak War, on His Birth Anniversary.
One of the most valiant, celebrated and decorated army officers this country saw was Sam Hormusji Framji Jamshedji Manekshaw aka Sam Manekshaw, who had a spectacular four-decade-long career in the Indian Army and his tales of valour and bravery gave him the name ‘Sam Bahadur’. He is especially known for his heroics during the 1971 Indo-Pak War when he was the Chief of Army Staff.
In October 1932, Sam became a part of the first batch of cadets for a military academy in India. In an exceptional career spanning across four decades, Manekshaw fought five major wars including World War II in 1942, the Indo-Pak partition war in 1947, Sino-Indian War in 1962, Indo-Pak War in 1965 and the 1971 war of Bangladesh Liberation.
In remembrance of Sam Manekshaw and as a support toward the nation, let us join the Vidya Bharati Alumni Network.
