Indian, Chinese soldiers break into ‘Bhangra’ —Twitter has a field day

  • Indian and Chinese troops danced to the tunes of 'bhangra' after a joint military exercise, for the 7th Sino-India joint exercise in China.
  • The video was shared from the Indian Army's social handles.
  • The exercise will focus on a balance of indoor classes and outdoor training activities for soldiers of both countries.
In a video that has taken the Internet by storm, Indian and Chinese troops can be seen dancing to the tunes of the Indian traditional folk dance 'bhangra' after a joint military exercise. The soldiers shared a lighter moment dancing as they got together for the 7th Sino-India joint exercise Hand-in-Hand 2018 at Chengdu in China.

Though, the Indian side was a pro at the dance form, the Chinese nailed the performance with their synchronised moves. The sheer zeal of the soldiers, who otherwise are assumed to be wary of each other at the border, was a treat to watch.

What's interesting is that the video was shared from the official Twitter, Facebook and Instagram handles of the Indian Army. On Twitter, the video has been retweeted over 300 times and has garnered over 1.7k likes in the last 19 hours. In fact, the video also has over 77k views on Facebook.

Watch the video here:

“Troops of #IndianArmy and #ChineseArmy sharing lighter moments after practicing gruesome Battle Obstacle Course,” the Army wrote on its various social platforms.

At a time when both countries are still on-guard with last year’s Doklam conflict, this video could be a sign of things moving in the right direction — or at least that is what the Indian Army wants us to believe.

The Seventh Sino-India joint exercise Hand-in-Hand 2018 is scheduled from 10 to 23 December 2018. Contingents from the Indian Army’s 11 SIKHLI and a regiment from Tibetan Military District of People’s Liberation Army are participating in the exercise.

With an aim to foster better relations between armies of both the countries, the exercise will focus on a balance of indoor classes and outdoor training activities. The exercise will also involve tactical level operations in an international counter insurgency/counter terrorism environment under the UN mandate.
