Army Police Team Rehearsing For Military Literature Festival Near Sukhna Lake In Chandigarh

AS MANY as 317 motorbikes rode through a 41-km-long stretch in the Tricity on Sunday to raise the pitch for the upcoming Military Literature Festival in Chandigarh. The motorbikes, carrying 400 professional riders, including 10 women, were ‘Riding for the Military’ as part of the Bravehearts Ride — one of the events organised as a prelude to the main festival, scheduled for December 7-9 at Lake Club, Chandigarh. With their bikes dotted with flags and logos, the bikers gathered at the Chandigarh War Memorial in the morning to take part in a wreath-laying ceremony which was performed with traditional solemnity. Lieutenant General T S Shergill (Retd), Senior Advisor to Punjab Chief Minister, flagged off the Bravehearts Ride after laying the wreath in remembrance and honor of all those who had made the sacrifice for the country in their line of duty.
