Gripping cold usually makes people lethargic and one prefers to sit in a corner and sip a hot cup of tea or coffee. However, the lives of the soldiers of the Indian Army come with great challenges and adversaries. They are accustomed to guarding the borders and living in extreme weather conditions.
In an example of such grit, a viral video shows a group of soldiers playing volleyball quite enthusiastically in a snow-covered area. The video shows the soldiers fully-covered in winter clothes from their head to toes.
The group seems carefree even as they get buried almost till their knees. One of the teams is also seen bursting into exuberance after scoring a point while the snow keeps falling.
The video shared by IAS officer Awanish Sharan has gone viral on social media. “The best ‘Winter Games.’ Our Jawans,” the bureaucrat captioned the video. So far, the clip has garnered over 39,000 views.
