A viral video of an Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) officer playing a heartwarming tune on mandolin and dedicating it to the front line workers of the COVID-19 pandemic is winning hearts online. The video shared by the official Twitter handle of ITBP features Constable Rahul Khosla strumming a soothing tune for the COVID-19 warriors. 

“Constable Rahul Khosla, ITBP presents the tune for Corona Warriors on Mandolin,” the department wrote while sharing the video on the micro-blogging site on May 18.

Hundreds who came across the video praised Khosla for his gesture to extend his gratitude to the front line workers of the pandemic while others were impressed with his skill on the instrument. The video has already garnered over 30,000 views. Many flocked to the post to laud the officer and also thank him for the gesture. "Thank you, sir," wrote a user. "Jai Hind," wrote another.

'Jeet jayenge hum' 

Previously, another ITBP soldier won hearts with his song dedicated to frontline essential workers called ‘Jeet Jayenge Hum’. The song is written and composed by Raj Kumar, a sub-inspector in the Indo-Tibetian Border Force. The inspiring composition made its way to the internet after being shared on the official Twitter handles of ITBP and has been winning hearts since then. 

The nearly two-minute-long video clip features Kumar, beautifully crooning the song. "Zindagi har kadam ek nayi jang hai. Jeet jaayenge hum, tu agar sang hai. Hausla na chhod, kar saamna jahaan ka. Woh badal raha hai, ek rang aasman ka. Yeh shikayat ka nahin, yeh fateh ka rang hai," he sings. Meanwhile, the ITBP used the opportunity to reinforce their plea for the public to adhere to proper public safety measures including social distancing, hygiene inter alia.
