    Guys, Indian Army has done a tremendous job in helping the stranded people, rescued many from near certain death from landslides even to the peril of their lives. Only the Indian Army can be so selfless be it war or peace when duty calls.

    This dedicated thread for all news on their bravery and especially the various photos and videos.
