While we are snuggled in our beds and comfy warm blankets back home, many of our brave soldiers are facing the harsh winters at the borders of India while vigilantly keeping an out for the enemies.
Though they too have warm blankets and a hot cup of tea to keep them a bit warm, the winters that they face are nowhere close to the one any of us witness.
These soldiers not only sacrifice their comfort for us, they keep us safe and secure by risking their lives every single minute.
Here are few incredible pictures that show us what exactly they go though just to keep the country safe and happy.
While we complained about long ATM lines, they mutely kept watch in knee deep snow and only a harness to protect them from a snow storm.
Walled home is a luxury to them, all they want is a bit of sun and small tent to protect them from the freezing air of the Himalayas.
It’s hard to find soldiers sleeping in warm beds, and more common to see them lying in the bed snow, keeping a lookout for the enemy.
It doesn’t matter to them if the soldier beside them is Muslim, Sikh or Hindu, all that they care about is their nation and India.
No matter what the condition, they make sure they train and that they train hard.
And while we call it an adventure, for them it’s a part of everyday life.
It’s not an easy path to reach them, and definitely not an easy journey for them to get back home.
But no matter how hard the life might get for them, they make sure they keep the development going…
…and keep enjoying the beauty around them.
So make sure fellow Indians, that even though you cannot be with them at the border, you are with them in your prayers.
