The Indian and American soldiers broke into a dance while singing the popular marching song dedicated to Badluram, a soldier in the Assam regiment who was killed during World War II.
In the video shared by Indian Army, the soldiers can be seen loudly cheering, dancing and singing “Badluram ka badan zameen ke neeche hai aur humko uska ration milta hai”. The song is a legend that continues as a regimental song of Assam Rifles.
The group of soldiers could be seen singing and dancing on the Assam Regiment’s marching song during the joint exercise ‘Yudhabhyas’ that was carried out at Joint Base Lewis, McChord in the United States.
The song that they dance to is a story in itself. Badluram, a soldier in the Assam regiment was killed in World War II but his name remained in the rolls and his share of ration continued to be accounted for. When the Japanese got the better of the troops, they were left with no supplies and it was Badluram’s share of the ration that was in abundance that helped the troops survive.
