“The Army is the true nobility of our country. Discipline is the soul of an Army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to all of the weak, and esteem to all. The soldier is the Army. No Army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country. On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind,” Dr. Sandeep Marwah Chief Scout For India read quotes to motivate the young Indians.
