The Indian Army Northern Command's official twitter account on Saturday evening (21 June) posted a fiery video dedicated to the 16 Bihar Regiment which has been credited with a daring counter-attack against the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA).
The video made and voiced by Major Akhil Pratap takes the viewers through the glorious history of the Bihar Regiment all the way from 1857 to the present date.
Some of the standout dialogues from the video include:
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog
It's Monday buddy there will be a Tuesday - the violent Galwan face-off took place on a Monday (15 June)
They do what they do, they are not the bats they are the batman, Bajrang Bali Ki Jai
As reported earlier, the jawans of 16 Bihar regiment teamed up with the Ghatak Commandos to "unleashed a reign of terror, unheard in modern military history" against the Chinese after Commanding Officer Colonel B Santosh Babu was killed in an unprovoked attack.
Launching a counterattack, 60 Indian troops charged towards the PLA personnel.
As the word spread about Colonel's death, the 16 Bihar men were said to have joined by the Ghatak troops.
The Ghatak commandos are experts in close-quarter battle and spearhead assaults ahead of the battalion, the report said.
Both, 16 Bihar men and Ghatak troops together chased down at least 18 PLA troops.
"Some had their necks dangling from their bodies, while those whose faces were smashed with stones were beyond recognition," sources were quoted in the report as saying.
