Mumbai, Oct 12: Students of St Xavier’s Group of schools joined the nation in celebrating the Indian Air Force Day by paying their tribute to the heroes of the Indian Air Force and enriching their awareness about the Indian Air Force through an interactive session with Air Force veteran Ravindra Shukla. After a thirty-year stint in AIF Mr. Shukla, is now actively involved in the Air Wing of NCC and Inter-Service Sports Championships.
