The Indian Army lost 4 jawans and 2 porters in an avalanche in the northern sector of the Siachen glacier on Monday, 18th November. One among those who lost their lives was Naik Maninder Singh.


Born on 24th August 1990, Singh was just 18 when he joined the Indian Army. A video that is doing the rounds on social media shows that he was not only a brave soldier, but also a great singer.

Sources suggest that Singh chose to serve the nation over singing. He had inherited this tradition from his father Sukhdev Singh, who also sacrificed his life in the line of duty to the nation.


People on Twitter saluted the soldier for his sacrifice and praised him for choosing to serve the nation.

Thousands of people also gathered in his hometown to pay their last tributes to the braveheart.

Siachen is one of the harshest places to serve in and these soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the avalanche are indeed the bravest.
