We all like to let our hair down on our birthdays. But for soldiers of the Indian Army, that's seldom an option. Despite the adversities, however, a video of a group of soldiers celebrating a birthday with a "cake" made out of snow.
In a 14-second-long video clip uploaded on Twitter by former cricketer Virender Sehwag, a group of soldiers can be seen celebrating one of their birthday on a snow covered hill. They go on to cut a "cake" made out of snow and the birthday boy even shares a piece with his fellow army men.
"A soldier celebrating his birthday. Forget cheese cake, the beauty of a Snow cake, which only a soldier knows. No word are enough to describe their sacrifices and resilience," Sehwag tweeted while sharing the photo.
