About Indian Army

The epic history of Indian Army dates
back to more than ten thousand chequered years. The two epics of
‘Ramayana’ and ‘Mahabharata’ constitute the fundamental framework around
which the edifice of Indian Army is built. The massive epic war
‘Mahabharata’, fought at Kurukshetra in north-central India, has left
indelible imprints on the Indian psyche. Fought relentlessly for
eighteen days in quest of peace, the force level described in the Epic
states 18 ‘Akshaunis’, seven with the ‘Pandavas’ and eleven with the
‘Kauravas’, amounting to nearly 400,000 assorted troops fighting on
chariots, horses, elephants and foot soldiers.
