Dance, chant, sing: WATCH Indian soldiers send army-style New Year greetings
Taking a break from the hard work of soldiering, Indian service members have been filmed sending a flurry of artistic New Year greetings to the nation, garnering applause on social media.
Deployed in the snowy Himalayan ridges of Kashmir, a bunch of soldiers try their best to show off their team spirit. Standing atop a mountain, their squad chanted some slogans before “wishing everybody a happy and a prosperous New Year.”
Their brother-in-arms –serving tours of duty in the same region– staged a more sophisticated performance, singing a patriotic song while also dancing in unison.

All in all, the service members could chill out somewhat during the New Year’s period, passionately dancing to the authentic beats.

Naturally, the videos were received quite well by Indian twitterati, who thanked them for their selfless service. “Heart goes out to their warm spirit in those punishing cold conditions,” one woman wrote. Other comments were equally appreciative.
