The Amar Jawan Jyoti by Anshuman Johri on Flickr.The Amar Jawan Jyoti
A set of four torches, the “Amar Jawan Jyoti” (Flame of the Immortal Warrior) is lit under the arch of India Gate at New Delhi. The torches are placed at the corners of a black marble cenotaph which also has a rifle and a soldier’s helmet on its barrel. Each face of the cenotaph has the words “Amar Jawan” (Immortal Warrior) inscribed in Golden letters. Though the India Gate (built in 1931) commemorates the Indian soldiers who died in World War 1 and the Afghan Wars, the torch (unveiled in 1972) is kept alive to honour those who laid their lives during the 1971 Indo-Pak War.
