What is Beating Retreat Ceremony
Beating Retreat represents a centuries-old military tradition when troops ceased fighting, holstered their weapons, retreated from the battlefield, and returned to their camps at the sound of “retreat.” The “retreat” also sounded to call patrol units to their barracks.
Ministry mentioned that the song “Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon” “causes a strong sense of patriotism with all the Indians,” as all citizens can understand the letters.
