[Lieutenant General in Indian Army]

What is Infantry?

Gen Shakti Gurung: "Infantry is the general branch of an army that engages in military combat on foot. As the troops who engage with the enemy in close-ranged combat, infantry units bear the largest brunt of warfare and typically suffer the greatest number of casualties during a military campaign. Historically, as the oldest branch of the combat arms, the infantry are the tip of the spear of a modern army, and continually undergo training that is typically more physically demanding and psychologically stressful than that of any other branch of the combat arms."

How I got into Infantry?

Gen Shakti Gurung: "After completing my schooling from a Boarding School in Dehradun. I joined National Defence Academy in 1971 and passed out from there in 1974. After NDA, I joined Indian Military Academy and was commissioned into the Indian Army in 1975. I served Indian Army for 40 years and retired in Oct 2014 as a Military secretary."
