The official profile of ITBP shared the clip on Twitter which shows the kid named Namgyal standing beside a road in Chushul, Ladakh as the troops pass by. The video captures the young kid saluting the troops who later teach him the right gestures to salute and he promptly carries out the gesture flawlessly.
Namgyal also responds to the commands of “Savdhaan (attention)” and “Vishram (at ease)”.
Sharing the video, ITBP wrote, ”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.”
