The Indian and Japanese armies are currently engaged in the joint military exercise ‘Dharma Guardian’ at the Mahajan field firing ranges in Rajasthan. The exercise includes the incorporation of yoga, highlighting its significance in enhancing both physical and mental well-being. Troops from both contingents are actively involved in various training activities, including navigating obstacle courses and conducting combat shooting drills.

Dharma Guardian is an annual exercise alternately held in India and Japan, with each side represented by a contingent of 40 personnel. The Japanese contingent comprises troops from the 34th Infantry Regiment, while the Indian Army contingent is represented by the Rajputana Rifles battalion.

This collaborative effort underscores the deepening military cooperation between India and Japan, demonstrating a commitment to enhancing interoperability and mutual understanding. The training focuses on building capabilities in counter-terrorism and disaster response scenarios.

The exercise serves as a platform for exchanging best practices, fostering trust, and building camaraderie between the armed forces of both nations. Through joint training initiatives, India and Japan aim to bolster regional stability and contribute to peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region.

As troops undergo rigorous training at the Mahajan field firing ranges, the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the two countries continue to strengthen, paving the way for an enhanced strategic partnership in the future.

According to a recent Ministry of Defence press release, “Exercise Dharma Guardian will enable the two sides to share best practices in tactics, techniques, and procedures for conducting tactical operations. The exercise will also facilitate the development of interoperability, bonhomie, and camaraderie between troops on both sides, enhancing the level of defence cooperation and fostering bilateral relations between the two friendly nations.”

Dharma Guardian, a two-week exercise, commenced on February 25 and will conclude on March 9.
