“The medal award ceremony was something distinctively different this year for the entire group of Indian Peacemakers in the Upper Nile region of South Sudan; 

In the history of an award ceremony, for the first time, a woman led the parades of the large contingent, consisting of infantry, engineers, and medical staff,” said Jasmine Chattha.

The regiment sends a loud and clear message to the residents of South Sudan’s women, particularly by positing women as the company’s leader.
