    So, the Army is celebrating Vijay Diwas at Dadar, Mumbai's Shivaji Park tmrw.

    The Victory Day is in commemoration of the 1971 war of liberation of the present-day Bangladesh from what was then East Pakistan.

    Around 1,500 Army personnel from across the state will participate in the three-day program, which was last held at the Shivaji Park grounds in 2003.

    Army equipment including tanks and Army Air Service Corps helicopters will be present, and the Day will also feature a parade by the NCC-corps and aero and ground displays by the Parachute and the Maratha Light Infantry Regiments.

    This space will be used to update with pictures of the Vijay Diwas celebrations.

    Mumbai: The Indian Army willbe holding an event at ShivajiPark, Mumbai to observe Vijay Diwas, honouring the martyrs of the 1971 Indo-Pak war. 93,000 Pakistani troops led by General Amir Aabdullah Khan Niazi surrendered to theIndian army on this day.
    The Army through 'Know YourArmy Mela' would also try to reach out to people and wouldshow its military might."Through Army Mela we will show to the people what all equipment we have and will also try to encourage the youth to join the Indian Army,"Major General Rajesh Bawa, General Officer Commanding, Mumbai Sub Area, had said.
    Military bands will be displayed at Gateway of India,Chowpatty and at Radium Mall. Problems of ex-servicemen's residing in Mumbai and nearbyareas will also be addressed in the Mela. Youth will also be told about the benefits of joining the Army.
    The Chief guest for the preliminary function is Mohit Shah, Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court, while Maharashtra Governor K Sankarnarayanan is the chief guest for the main function on16. People from the metropoliscan have a look at motor cycle display by Army, sky-diving, 'malkhamb' and aero-modelling display by the National Cadet Corps cadets, Major General Bawa added.
    Around 1,500 Army personnel from across the state are participate in the three-day programme, which was last held at the Shivaji Park grounds in 2003. Lamenting about the shortfall of officers in the Indian Army he said,"maximum recruitment in Indian Army is from Maharashtra. We want to fill the shortfall at the officers category. There is not much shortfall in soldiers category," he said.

    Re: Mumbai: Indian Army to hold Vijay Diwas celebrations at Shivaji Pa

    Just had visited Shivaji Park, it was a total chaos, People be Man, Women and Children just jumping over each other to get the glimpse of Army's Hardware as no proper arrangement seems to have made, in fact there is simply no difference between visiting Adult and Childrens in their exuberence to see the obvious. Soldiers from Sikh Regiment simply hard pressed to control out of control crowd, there faces can easily say difference between easier job of showing enemy the sky and most harder job of controlling mad crowd.

    Meanwhile, enjoyed the sight of Dhruv and soldiers rappling down right in the middle of huge Ground. Dhurv Certainly appears a mean machine.

    Indian Army is having its annual Vijat Diwas Celebration at HQ Eastern Command, Kolkata, from where the victory was sketched and implemented.

    Mukti Jodhyas of Bangladesh, as is the norm, will also be attending.
