Braving harsh weather and guarding the borders are inevitable parts of a soldier’s profession. And most of them are away from homes during festivities and celebrations and miss being amid their families.

Not to be left behind, some soldiers of the Border Security Force (BSF) posted at the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir kept the spirit of Bihu alive and celebrated Assam’s popular harvest festival.

In a video posted by the BSF, which is being shared widely on social media, the soldiers are seen making the moves to a traditional Bihu song in the backdrop of snow-clad mountains.

“Mountains and mountains of snow, blinding blizzards, freezing temperatures, stress of 24 hours vigil #LoC , away from homes; this all didn’t deter BSF troops to dance few steps & celebrate #Bihu at FDL in #Keran Sector #ForwardArea,” BSF said in a tweet.
