A Two Day Army Exhibtion (Fauji Mela) in Mhow

Fauji Mela in Mhow.
Jan 12-13 2012.
To celebrate National Youth Day (the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda).
The station commander Brigadier Mukesh Kumar was requested by Mhow MLA and State Industries Minister Shri Kailash Vijayvargiya to extend the mela by one day so that people from Indore could also see it. That is the reason why the exhibition of military hardware was open on Jan 13 too...
