Love this video of the Indian Army soldiers dancing in a high altitude area on the song ‘hawa hawa eh hawa’ of Hassan Jahangir from 1987. It warms your heart and brings such a smile.

The video is becoming a sensation on social media where users are appreciating the morale and high-spiritedness of the soldiers. However, we could not verify the veracity of the video.
The soldiers holding spades and other tools--one is even holding a dog--using them as props for their impromptu dance moves, shake a leg with each other even as they are situated in a tough climatic terrain with harsh weather conditions.
Over the years, several moving stories of Army soldier, on duty in hostile conditions, have garnered tremendous support from the public.
However, this video is eliciting joyous reactions on social media, showing a different side of the Army.
