India’s role in the First War has always been downplayed and under-documented for a number of reasons. India did not gain freedom till the Second Great War making the First a distant memory. Since there was no Indian nation yet, any forces sent from the subcontinent tended to be Empire soldiers or soldiers of princely states – both notions making them somewhat less than Indian for later commentators.
Socially conscious and civic minded persons of Indian origin settled in different parts of Europe have come together to form an Interfaith Shaheedi Commemoration Association (Association régie par la loi de 1901) with headquarters in Cergy France. It is headed by Ramesh Vohra a well-known and popular businessman of the French capital.
It is registered with the French authorities under the 1901 law. Its aim is to revive the memory of our soldiers who gave their lives during the two world wars, for people unknown to them and far away from their own families.
