Indian Army soldiers stationed in Jammu and Kashmir are prepared to celebrate the 74th Republic Day despite the freezing weather and snowfall. An Indian Army soldier is seen patrolling at the last post in Jammu and Kashmir in a video posted by the news agency ANI, which is 7,200 feet above sea level and covered in thick snow.
The Indian Army’s jawans are unfazed by the freezing conditions in the Kashmir Valley and maintain a high level of zeal despite the challenging circumstances.
