To show their support to Covid-19 warriors, flypasts, lit-up ships and musical tributes by army bands outside hospitals took place across the country. From Srinagar to Hyderabad, Mumbai to Itanagar, the flypasts by the air force and the navy added to the tribute. The Indian Air Force, Army and Navy joined hands today to express their gratitude to healthcare workers, police, and forces at the frontlines of the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic.
This is the third major display of gratitude to health workers, following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s request to Indians to clap for the Covid-19 warriors from their balconies, followed by people switching off their lights and lighting candles and diyas on the PM’s request.
On Friday, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat, with all three service heads, announced the “gesture of special gratitude” will take place.
