While Army personnel posted in high altitude areas like Siachen face extreme conditions of weather and terrain, a video of a soldier celebrating his birthday has brought cheer among netizens.
The 14-second clip, which was shared by former cricketer Virender Sehwag, shows a group of soldiers cheering and clapping as one of them is seen cutting a ‘snow cake’.
“A soldier celebrating his birthday. Forget cheesecake, the beauty of a Snow cake, which only a soldier knows. No words are enough to describe their sacrifices and resilience,” wrote Sehwag while sharing the viral clip.
