Seema Darshan Scheme
Children are the future of the country and it is important that they understand the values and the achievements of our country. The Indian Army, Navy and Air force work very hard, at the cost of their lives, to protect our country and fight for it. The border areas, where they are posted, are not a pleasant place to live in, and they sure have a tough life. It is important that the children of our country understand the tough border condition and understand what the Indian Army does for us. Bringing in a sense of patriotism is essential and so a new scheme was introduced, called the Seema Darshan.
