    GUWAHATI: The first 'Fauji Mela' exposition held by 4th Corps at the historic Darrang College ground in Tezpur on Sunday was opened with a heartrending song by Bhupen Hazarika 'Koto Juwanor Mrityu Hoi', which he wrote while sitting at the Bomdila Club after the Sino-Indian War in 1962.

    Defence spokesman Lt Col S S Phogat said the event organised by the 4thCorps headed GOC Lt Gen Shakti Gurung was inaugurated by chief minister Tarun Gogoi. "The exposition was aimed to showcase the strength, organization and capabilities of the Indian army to the people of the state. The finesse of its conduct by the Gajraj Corps made it an event to cherish," the spokesman stated.

    The theme of the Fauji Mela was, 'We care for our People'. The role of the army in national integration manifested itself in the event. The chief minister's wife, Dolly Gogoi, also present at the mela which was attended by several senior civil and military dignitaries, including chief secretary NK Das.

    The highlight of the mela was a well choreographed display of combat power comprising of combat free fall by commandos, mock attacks, battle drills and a high energy charge by Gorkha soldiers severing the heads of the enemy with their khukris. There was also a captivating display of skills by the army dog unit and delightful trick riding on mules exemplified the cohesiveness of the army jointmanship with the Air Force.

    The event was witnessed by over 10,000 spectators, the spokesman added.

    Fauji Mela in Mhow.
    Jan 12-13 2012.
    To celebrate National Youth Day (the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda).
    The station commander Brigadier Mukesh Kumar was requested by Mhow MLA and State Industries Minister Shri Kailash Vijayvargiya to extend the mela by one day so that people from Indore could also see it. That is the reason why the exhibition of military hardware was open on Jan 13 too.

    Since I got selected I really cannot comment.

    I presume that all are keen to get selected, some get selected and some don't!

    But then all are keen to get selected!
