    New Delhi (Sputnik): Soldiers are always ready for the next battle and they spend their days and nights in inhospitable terrain to protect the integrity of nations. Indian troops have to protect the snow-clad Himalayan ranges on the highest battlefield in the world – the Siachen Glacier, where the temperature can dip to minus 50 degree Celsius.

    A group of Indian soldiers deployed in a snow-clad region of the country’s border celebrated the birthday of one of their colleagues by slicing some snow. The video, posted by Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag, has gone viral. Sehwag said, “No words are enough to describe their sacrifices and resilience”.

    ​The "birthday boy" cut the white snow and shared it with his colleagues in a locale with a blanket of snow.

    One tweeple responded by saying, “Their happiness doesn’t lie in luxury, it lies in the sacrifices for nation!”

    ​Another social media user wrote emotionally, “I was getting emotional to compare with our birthday celebrations!!”

    ​The video already has traction of over 15,000 retweets and 110,400 likes.
