The Indian Army's 2/5 Gorkha Rifles battalion turns 125 today. Going by the motto Shauryam Evam Nishtha (courage and determination), the unit was raised in Abbottabad, present day Pakistan (yes, the same one). Commentator and columnist Maj Gen (Retd) Ashok K. Mehta, who belongs to the unit, has this column today. Many felicitations to the unit on this very special day.
