The Indian Army's 2/5 Gorkha Rifles
battalion turns 125 today. Going by the motto Shauryam Evam Nishtha
(courage and determination), the unit was raised in Abbottabad, present day Pakistan (yes, the same one). Commentator and columnist Maj Gen (Retd) Ashok K. Mehta, who belongs to the unit, has this column
today. Many felicitations to the unit on this very special day.
