Imphal, Jan. 16

This year’s Army Day will be fondly remembered by the children from the border villages of Indo-Myanmar Border. To celebrate the day, Moltuk Battalion of 26 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of IGAR (South) organized an excursion trip for the primary students of the border region to Imphal.
A total of 33 school children between the age group of 10 to 15 years along with 2 primary school teachers were selected for the excursion. The tour began on 13 January 2019 when these children were taken from their villages to Imphal. Next two days they were taken in and around Imphal for a fun filled and educational trip. This included a visit to the INA museum, the Kangla Fort and the Kakching War memorial. The children also enjoyed boating in the famous Loktak Lake.
The unforgettable moment of the trip came when the children met and interacted with Dr Najma Heptullah, Honourable Governor of Manipur on 15 January 2019. The day being celebrated as Army Day across the country could not have been better and more rewarding for the children. For the children hailing from such remote and far-flung corners of the state, such a meeting and interaction with a distinguished personality is bound to leave a positive and indelible mark on their minds.
Indian Army, which operates in the remotest parts of the country and is a witness to the isolation and seclusion of these people from the mainstream, understands the importance of such small but effective initiatives that would go a long way in achieving national integration. These children are the future of our country and Moltuk Battalion continues to do its bit towards motivating and uplifting the lives of these children.
