  1. It's a lovely place right in the middle of city. A place we frequent quite regularly. It feels so good to meet all the old retiree uncles and aunties from defense who are regular visitors of this place. It brings back the old world 'fauji' charm and that crispy mannerisms is totally unmissably so 'fauji'. Just love it!!

  2. Noida is home to many bravehearts who have laid down their lives including the Kargil Shaheed Capt Vijayant Thapar. The memorial, raised by the township, is a tribute to these brave men. It is unique in this aspect that people of the city have made efforts to honour their war dead.
