Col Saurabh Singh Shekhawat, the most decorated serving army officer in India, recently shared an anecdote about his training days and the lesson he learned in Indian identity and religion.
In the video clip shared by ex-Army man Raghu Raman, Shekhawat is first seen narrating an incident when he was punished and asked to take a dip in dirty water for calling himself a “Hindu Rajput''.
If you had to listen to one man today. #OneTalkToday

Born in Alwar, Rajasthan, Shekhawat is the Commanding Officer of the 21st battalion of the Parachute Regiment (Special Forces). He has also accomplished the difficult feat of climbing Mount Everest not just once but thrice!
His remarkable lesson to the country in these times has resonated with many:
Salute. Wish everyone could get the ethics of an army officer

Etched in my memory from time immemorial as an Army brat - you never ask an army man about his religion - you ask him about his regiment.

Politicos please learn something from this patriotic Colonel of Special Forces. This is the ethos of the army. Stop being petty. Nation first always and everytime.
