    New Delhi (Sputnik): The new Indian Army Chief Manoj Mukund Naravane extended his heartiest wishes to the entire country New Year’s Day. He took over the coveted post on Tuesday after General Bipin Rawat left the office and became the first Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) in the country.

    From the freezing point in the northernmost region of India to the Line of Control, the de-facto border between India and Pakistan in the Kashmir region, soldiers deployed at various locations are sending in their heartiest wishes for the New Year.

    In another video, troops can be seen singing in one voice - “Serving Our Nation is Our Duty”. The video has garnered 1.9K re-tweets.
