Sanskar School commemorates war hero Gen Sagat Singh’s birth centenary
Sanskar School was a part of the Indian army’s efforts in holding a series of events in Rajasthan to commemorate the birth centenary of legendary war veteran, Lieutenant General Sagat Singh, notable for his pivotal role in the liberation of Goa from Portugese rule and later, the liberation of Bangladesh. A three-star General in the Indian Army, Singh was born in Kusumdesar village in Churu district on July 14, 1919. For this inspirational leadership as a Military Commander in war, the Nation bestowed him with the Padma Bhushan.
The celebrations started under the aegis of South-Western command from July 8 with motivational lectures in schools at Jaipur and other parts of the state. Alongside a session highlighting the military genius of Gen. Sagat Singh, a motivational talk was also presented to the students of Class XI from Sanskar School, inspiring them to join the Indian Army by Capt Anjana and Lt Sudeep. The students listened avidly to the talk and clarified various doubts regarding entry schemes for joining the Indian Army.
In continuation with the celebrations, a special function was held in Jaipur to unveil the bust of Lt. Gen Sagat Singh. Sanskar School’s NCC cadets were present for the function held over a period of two days.
