Serving the Country

Serving the Country


Usually it is not allowed to take picture of militaries in duty in India.
However whenever I meet some soldiers they often accept that I make their portrait.
The Indian Army is the world’s second largest army in terms of military personnel, and the largest in terms of active manpower. 
It is a completely voluntary service, the military draft having never been imposed in India. 
The army has rich combat experience in diverse terrains, due to India’s diverse geography, and also has a distinguished history of serving in United Nations peacekeeping operations.
The Army deployed in Ladakh region is covering many operations in order to secure the borders of the country.
I met this soldier at Thiksey Gompa, a Buddist monastery near Leh.
