Tweeting a jaw-dropping video, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) have not only brought feelings of awe but also pride in the nation.
In the video, the Himveers, as the Indo-Tibetan Border Police are called, are seen doing yoga on a frozen water body in Ladakh.
The video went viral with people remarking on the soldiers' unflinchingly doing yoga despite not being dressed for the freezing conditions.
The Himalayan Border Security Police are trained to survive in such extreme conditions. Earlier too, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police had posted pictures of the soldiers' training on its official Twitter, sometimes in below 10-degree temperature, including past visuals of them performing yoga bare-bodied at the frozen mountains.
These are some pictures tweeted by ITBF of its personnel undergoing special yoga training sessions in high altitude areas.
Seeing the visuals people have applauded the courage and dedication of the soldiers.
Who are Himveers?
The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) is one of the seven Central Armed Police Forces of India, raised on 24 October 1962, under the CRPF Act, in the wake of the Sino-Indian War of 1962. The ITBP was intended for deployment along India's border with Tibet. The mountain-warfare trained force, under the command of the Union Home Ministry, is deployed from the Karakarom Pass in Jammu and Kashmir to Jechap La in Arunachal to guard the 3,488-km long Line of Actual Control (LAC) across 5 states. Its border posts are located at altitudes ranging from 3,000-19,000 feet.
