Asli hero woh hota hai
Jiske badan par khakhi
Dil mein tiranga
Aur kandhon par poore desh ki suraksha ki zimmewari ho.
Kyunki usko pata hota hai jeetne ki asli value aur haarne naam ka Shabd uski dictionary mein nahi hota

;For the uninitiated, Field Marshal KM Cariappa (then a Lieutenant General) took command of the Indian Army on this day in 1949 from British General Sir Francis Butcher, the final British Commander-in-Chief of India.
