Leh: A video of a small boy from Ladakh saluting Indo-Tibetan Border Police troops has gone viral, with many naming the kid a ‘soldier in making’.The official profile of ITBP shared the video on Twitter in which the kid Namgyal standing beside a road in Chushul, Ladakh as the corps passes by. The video captures the young kid saluting the troops who later train him the proper motions to salute and he promptly bears out the gesture perfectly.

Namgyal, a local kid in Chushul, Ladakh saluting the ITBP troops passing by. The enthusiastic kid saluting with high josh was randomly clicked by an ITBP Officer on 8 October morning.”
