73rd R-Day: ITBP Troops Unfurl National Flag At 15,000 Feet In Ladakh

As India celebrates its 73rd Republic Day with much pomp, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel on Wednesday unfurled the national flag at 15000 feet in minus 40-degree Celsius temperature at icy Ladakh borders.

The force also posted special videos and pictures to commemorate the Republic Day of India. The video shows the soldiers braving the freezing temperatures unfurling the national flag not only at Ladakh but also at different heights at peaks of the Himalayas where they are posted to secure the India-China border.

Also referred to as the ITBP ‘Himveers’, the personnel raised a full-throated cry: “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” and “Vande Matram”.

The clip has garnered several appreciative comments and wishes from netizens on Twitter.

Besides Ladakh, the ITBP personnel celebrated Republic Day at 16,000 feet in Himachal Pradesh in snow conditions saluting the national flag and singing the National Anthem.

The ITBP personnel also celebrated Republic Day at 12,000 feet in minus temperatures in the Kumaon region in Uttarakhand.

Serving the nation in the most difficult and inhospitable terrain in Ladakh, the ITBP personnel are examples of valor, commitment, and patriotism.
