In the aftermath of India’s independence, Major Bob Khating was entrusted with the monumental task of establishing Indian administration in the remote Tawang region. It was on 14 February 1951, that the tricolour was hoisted for the first time at Tawang by Maj Bob Khating, the appointed Assistant Political Officer, heralding the establishment of Indian Administration at Tawang. The same materialized after the valiant Major undertook a treacherous march from the plains of Assam to Tawang, negotiating Sela and Bomdila passes during peak winters, leading a contingent of 200 Assam Rifles troops and 600 porters for a difficult maiden mission, thus materialized the formal establishment of Indian Civil Administration at Tawang.

Armed with unwavering resolve and diplomatic finesse, he navigated the treacherous terrain of the Himalayas, bridging divides and fostering trust among the local populace. Through tireless negotiations and genuine empathy, Major Khating seamlessly integrated Tawang into the Indian Union, laying the foundations for governance and development. His strategic leadership and commitment to unity ensured a smooth transition, earning him the respect and admiration of all. Today, Tawang stands as a shining testament to Major Bob Khating’s indomitable spirit and visionary leadership.

Ever since then, the Day is celebrated annually with great fervour and enthusiasm by the Indian Armed Forces, the Tawang Administration and the locals. Major Bob Khating is revered not just for his remarkable achievements, but also for his enduring legacy of peace, unity, and nation-building.
