The Veterans tableau which was displayed on the Kartavya Path on the occasion of 74th Republic Day on Thursday, presented the theme of “Towards India’s Amrit Kaal with Resolve -a Veterans Commitment”, showing a mark of recognition of the endeavours by the Veterans in crafting the 75 Years of Independence.
The tableau is also a mark of their initiatives underway in shaping India’s destiny during the ‘Amrit Kaal’. Based on the theme, ‘Towards India’s Amrit Kaal with Resolve – a Veterans Commitment’ tableau provides a glimpse of veterans’ contributions in the past 75 years with focus on their silent yet meaningful and mega-impact endeavours. Veterans; who after enduring combat under the most challenging conditions remain relentless in the resolve of continued service to the nation. Thus, epitomising the indomitable spirit of the soldier.
The theme urges the citizens to commit in taking the nation to the zenith of overall development creating an environment that fosters unity, growth, a green environment, and harmony.
The theme illustrates how soldier citizens act as catalysts for motivating others in society for playing a constructive role in nation-building by being role models and pioneers in various projects which act as a precedent for many other development projects across the various domains e.g. Governance, Influencers in different fields (sports, digital India, modern farming, promoting Yoga, sports mentoring etc.), Environment saviours by undertaking green initiatives (pollution mapping, Mass awareness, plantation drive), Undertaking specific missions like Atulya Ganga/Namami Gange. Thus, being the nation’s pathfinders to the ‘Amrit Kaal’.
