In the video, we can see the soldiers cheering and dancing to the legendary song.
The viral video has been viewed over 19,000 times, has received 21, 500 likes and has been retweeted 5,800 times. It is from the ongoing 15th edition of the joint military training exercise of the Indo-US defence cooperation at Joint Base Lewis, McChord, Washington DC in the USA.
Yudh Abhyas is one of the largest running joint military training and defence corporation endeavours between India and the US. It began on September 5 and will continue till 18. The exercise is alternately hosted between the two countries. The exercise provides an opportunity to the armed forces of both countries to train in an integrated manner at Battalion level with joint planning at Brigade level.
For the uninitiated, Badluram was a soldier in the Assam regiment who was killed in World War II. His name had remained in the polls and his share of ration too continued to be doled out. When the Japanese got the better of the troops, they were left with no supplies and it was Badluram’s share of the ration that was in abundance that helped the troops survive.
