29th September 2018, Surgical Strike Day
A solemn occasion to be remembered by every Indian, Surgical Strike Day is observed as a tribute to all our soldiers tirelessly protecting us from imminent danger. Presidency University was honored to have on campus the special guest for the occasion, a Shaurya Chakra awardee – Major R. Bala Karthik of the Parachute Regiment Training Centre, Bangalore. The young, mature soldier held everyone spellbound with his passionate speech where he encouraged the students to consider the army as a career, where “there was a challenge every day that made one evolve and achieve their complete potential.” Being in the army was akin to several careers at a time because it demanded skill sets from different specialties and subject backgrounds. Major Bala Karthik also posed willingly for pictures with the students and planted a sapling to mark his visit on campus.
