It’s the badge of sacrifice meaning whosoever wears it owes his blood to the nation. The training is the world’s toughest and harshest like surviving in the wilderness by eating plants, bugs and making tools, keeping warm, etc. dealing with torture and capture, specialized methods of infiltrations, capturing friendly signals etc. HAHO and HALO techniques are an important part of their training of the Para Commandos. They are called as the GLASS EATERS. Glass eating tradition is a ritual that fosters their sense of absolute fearlessness and superiority.
