If an Army man's life could be described as full of hard work, bravery, training, the same could be said about Army dogs as no less is expected from them. In the video, you can see the dogs have a disciplined life, have undergone a lot of training, and are ready for a battle or a rescue mission.
The video is from an event by the Eastern Command of Indian Army from its celebration of the Vijay Diwas on December 13 by organising a host of events including helicopter shows, paratrooper’s and, dog shows and horse shows.
The incredibly trained labradors perform several feats which you would think could only be done by humans.
They arrange themselves in several formations, including in lotus position. They display their training by following the orders of the Army men.
A few more stupendous achievements by them are climbing a stair and walking on a tight-rope. The dogs are trained in climbing stairs and walking on a tight-rope so they can help in disaster situations such as earthquakes, floods etc.
Walking on a tight-rope is considered a rare gift even for humans. It is performed by those few rare men and women who are able to do it only after intense training. So one can only imagine the skill of the Army men in the training.
The event showcases the preparedness of the Army and the Army dogs.
The Indo-Pakistan War of 1971 is heralded as one of the most convincing victories of the annals of the military history. It ended when Pakistani forces in East Pakistan (now, Bangladesh), with almost 1,00,000 being taken prisoners of war (PoWs), surrendered.
This led to the liberation of Bangladesh on December 16.
India and Bangladesh, since then, celebrate Vijay Diwas, also known as victory day, every year to mark both the countries' military victory over Pakistan.
On the ground, the Indian forces in East Pakistan relentlessly marched forward despite the enemy strength of about four divisions and established complete supremacy which ultimately led to the Pakistani forces laying down their arms.
