Indian Army Hierarchy

When we had discussions with topics concerning India and Defence and the Army, Navy and Airforce, I always got confused between ranks of who’s who? and Who’s above whom in the hierarchy. So decided to get this cleared once and for all…

To figure out the hierarchy, I stumbled upon this interesting piece of article on wiki which is worth sharing.

So here is the hierarchy (and the badges they wear)

Indian Flag

Was traveling today… and a small kid… comes to me selling flagsĀ  (ya, independence day is near)… and I noticed the saffron color did not look all that saffronish… it was very yellowish… Usually I am very senti about Independence day, Indian flag, Republic day, national anthem etc… and like to show complete respect… Wanted to give that kid a piece of my mind… to sell an Indian-look-alike flag…

But I thot, i’ll better check things up

The official flag specifications require that the flag be made only of khadi. The following is the color coding.

Scheme HTML CMYK Textile color Pantone
Orange #FF9933 0-50-90-0 Deep Saffron 1495c
White #FFFFFF 0-0-0-0 Dull White 1c
Green #138808 100-0-70-30 India green 362c
Blue #000080 100-98-26-48 Navy blue 2755c

Its rectangular in shape with dimensions in the ratio 2:3.

The Indian flag when hoisted should follow the flag code set by Government of India.




So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
