Learning life lessons outside textbooks, ‘𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝟮𝟱’ are on their way to Delhi, soon! The Veer Gatha Project was organized by Ministry of Defence in partnership with Ministry of Education and MyGov at an all-India level from 21st October to 20th November 2021 for school students of standard III to XII in all States and Union Territories as well as all schools affiliated to CBSE. This unique initiative is aimed at connecting the Youth to our Heritage & Culture with a Vision of a bright future of India through the Azadi Ka AmritMahotsav.
The activity was organized to disseminate the details of acts of bravery and life stories of the officers/personnel of the Armed Forces, other lawfully constituted forces and civilians, among the students. The students were motivated to frame different projects in the form of Poem / Paragraph / Essay / Painting / Multimedia Presentation (Enactment Video) on gallantry award winners.
