Dear Principal,

Gallantry Awards have been instituted by the Government of India to honour the acts of bravery and sacrifice of the officers/personnel of the Armed Forces, other lawfully-constituted Forces and Civilians. These gallantry awards are announced twice in a year on the occasion of Republic Day and Independence Day.

Project Veer Gatha Edition 2

In order to disseminate the details of acts of bravery and the life stories of these brave- hearts among the students, it has been proposed by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) that school students may be motivated to do projects/activities based on gallantry award winners. Accordingly, the first edition of Project Veer Gatha was organized from Aug 2021 to Jan 2022, for schools affiliated to CBSE and state boards. In pursuance of the Veer gatha the students undertook different projects on these gallantry award winners and the best projects were awarded nationally by MoD and Ministry of Education (MoE) on 12th August, 2022.

The MoD in coordination with MoE has now decided to launch Project Veergatha Edition – 2 which is proposed to be culminated with the prize distribution ceremony in January, 2023.

Interdisciplinary and art-integrated activities like poem/essay/story/paragraph/painting / drawing, videos, may be considered as project activities for the students.
