Magical algorithm of our defense forces
No loss goes unavenged. No call remains unhonoured
Since the age of Vedas and the epics, cultural instincts of the Indian soldier and his behavioural conduct has been subjected to and honed by certain martial traditions, values, and codes that thrive in the long-term muscle memory of modern day Indian Armed Forces. A unique framework of religio-social sensitivity without the accompanying bigotry or puritanical insistence, a regional-ethnic celebration without the exclusivist or supremacist dogma, and a carefully incubated and guarded interpretation of its own liberal moorings have evolved, within its 'barrackised' confines. Thus, unlike other security forces like the Police forces or the Central Armed Police Forces, the relative isolation from the societal morass (politics, external interferences, or administrative red-tapism), has ensured that the glint in the bayonet is effectively deployed for any kinetic operation, without any fuss or favour.
