The Indian Army sacrifices a lot for the sake of our safety. It is a fact that is accepted and appreciated by everyone. And that's why all Indians, irrespective of their varied political opinions, will agree on at least one thing: the Army is the backbone of the nation and we can't thank them enough for the kind of things that they brave for us.
However, at times we need to see for ourselves the kind of trouble they go through to make sure that the citizens of India can sleep a good sleep at night. Major Surendra Poonia, a Special Forces veteran himself, recently Tweeted an image of a jawan standing knee-deep in the flood water with his gun, doing his duty.

People lauded the fact that the Indian soldiers work in areas where we can't even think about going.

Some people even shut down haters. We can't even imagine the kind of resilience it requires to stand in water for hours.
They do have boots. But standing in knee deep water, without flinching, with that stoic resolve, for hours at a stretch. Proud of my army! 🙏— Anuja Choudhry (@AnujChoudhry3) 5 July 2017
Some were brought to tears when they saw the photo.
