India annually observed Vijay Diwas on December 16. The historic military triumph over Pakistan in the 1971 War is commemorated on this day. In remembrance of this glorious ceremony being held to honor our brave soldiers who gave their lives in the service of the country.
The 1971 War between the India and Pakistan forces played a key role in the liberation of Bangladesh. It was the year when an internal crisis in Pakistan escalated into a war with India and the secession of East Pakistan. It also altered the relationship between the United States and the South Asian region. Vijay Diwas is celebrated to commemorate this significant history and the rise of Bangladesh. It also pays homage to the troops of the war.
Vijay Diwas is a day to remember our history and to learn from it. Wars always come with heavy losses. Aside from that, people can learn the rise and decline of such wars and learn lessons to prevent such loss of human life.
