    These 74000 Indian soldiers were sacrificed for the war of our firiegn rulers who ruined us for 200 years and all this sacrifices happened because of one british agent called Gandhi who ironically is almost became a God figure fir his policy of non violence. This gandhi divorced his policy of non violence when giving permission to britishers for using Indian Armymen for WW1 and WW2.

    Great sacrifice, British promised freedom but forgot their promis. First time I met grandma of my French wife she was happy to see me she rember she said they make pancakes (chapati) in north of France they fought 4 years in cold mud n snow I visited samadhis of soldiers there’s written Waheguru ji fateh, names of dead, very good book letters of Indian soldiers written to their family they suffered.Indian voices of the Great War (David omission) letters were sensored but still good to read. Shashi Tharoor ´´s raj is also must read . Salute to all soldiers

    Proud of our ancestors, always the sword of justice. Humility and peace. Challenging discrimination and oppression and making a positive difference to reduce conflict and encourage peace ✌

    Battle of Haifa, 112 odd Indian soldiers (Jodhpurs Lancers) captured Haifa along with 1300 odd POW, which included Germans, Hungarian and Turks. Perhaps, it was the last cavalry charge in modern warfare, lances against machine guns. Needless to say, Indian soldiers were treated as inferior and cannon fodder, for a western war. Till very late, Indian soldiers were not allowed to be an officer.

    All might have forgotten, Gandhiji agreed for voilence as no war declared on India, Gandhiji shouldn't forget that many innocent indians die. The same indians if provided with weapons it's not enough that 1.5 million destruct British!? Even indians die they die here and for independence and proud to be martyrs

    Well, they were nothing but mercenaries. Fought for the Queen, to further Britain's imperialism. No wonder the present generation had forgotten them

    What a pity an enslaved nation fought for their masters who were treating them worst than their dogs but still they are appreciated that they fought bravely for their masters for getting few takas and rupees. To hell with them and their bravery and their sacrifice.
