Chandigarh, October 12

A video of a young boy in Ladakh saluting a team of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police personnel is being widely shared online by Twitter users.

The video was tweeted by the border patrol organisation and shows Namgyal looking up at the ITBP personnel and saluting them as they approach him.

In the video, one of the men gives him drill commands, “Aise karo (Do like this).”

The video was shot on October 8 in Ladakh’s Chushul.

“Salute! 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,” the ITBP tweeted, along with the video.

Namgyal can be seen giving a ‘kadak’ salute to the personnel and responding to the commands of “Savdhaan” (attention) and “Vishram” (at ease).

The video has received over 17,000 views on Twitter, with over 800 retweets and 3,000-plus likes.

Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrasekhar, after watching the video, expressed interest in starting a scholarship corpus for Namgyal and sought his parents’ details to send them money.

“I’m planning to help start a scholarship corpus for young warrior Namgyal by sending some money to his parents. Maybe @ITBP_official @lg_ladakh @JTNBJP can help with details of parents?” he tweeted.
