In another video which surfaced on social media last week, Indian and American soldiers were seen singing and dancing to the popular Indian marching song, ‘Badluram ka badan zameen ke neeche hai’. The song is dedicated to a rifleman named Badluram, who fought against the Japanese forces during World War II.
