    SUMMARY

    On September 23, 1965, the Indo-Pak war came to an end after the United Nations Security Council called for an unconditional ceasefire on the previous day. This war, unlike the previous conflict in 1947-48, was fought on many fronts and saw aerial combat between India and Pakistan for the first time. Both the USA and the USSR intervened diplomatically to prevent further escalation. On the same day in 2009, India successfully launched seven satellites including six from foreign countries and the Indian satellite Ocean Sat-2, underlining ISRO’s ambitions in the space business. The Ocean Sat-2 was launched for monitoring ocean patterns and identifying fishing zones, and enhancing the capability of the first Ocean Sat launched in 1999. Here are some more historical events that make September 23, a special day in world history.
