bhangra' after a joint militaryexercise, for the 7th Sino-India joint exercise in China.

Indian Army's social handles.

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.

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.
