They are the nameless and faceless sentinels of India’s borders, always on call to defend the country and often sacrificing their lives in the process. In a bid to salute the Indian soldiers, India News, the news and current affairs channel owned by Kartikeya Sharma, is airing a new show ‘War Heroes’ on Mondays at 10.30 am.
Each episode is dedicated to one soldier, where it takes the viewers to the war ravaged areas where these soldiers fought relentlessly without caring about their on lives. This black and white travelogue would bring freshness again to their footprints and narrate their tales of bravery.
The programme will visit the soldier’s cities, villages, schools or colleges and unfold their loving memories. The aim of the programme is to carry forward the legacy of the soldiers to instill in the minds of Indians an already disappearing sense of devotion to the motherland and pay homage to them by celebrating their lives.
Announcing the launch of ‘War Heroes’, Harish Gupta, CEO, India News, said, “‘War Heroes’ is a show for every Indian who has sung the National Anthem even once in life. This show will appeal to all age groups.”
Actor Mukesh Rishi would salute these martyrs and appeal to the people of India to lend a hand to the bereaved families of these bravehearts. The programme would serve as a timely reminder about the importance of the armed forces, given the dwindling numbers of people ready to take up a career in defence.
