A video of a boy enthusiastically saluting a couple of Indo Tibetian Border Police (ITBP) personnel in Ladakh received a lot of praise on social media.
The clip shared by the ITBP’s official Twitter handle shows the boy named Namgyal standing near a road and saluting the personnel as they walked past him.
One of the personnel then shows the young boy the correct way to salute, which the boy imitates. The video also shows Namgyal responding to the instructions of “Savdhaan” (attention) and “Vishram” (at ease)”.
