Soldiers break frozen eggs with hammer in Siachen, video goes viral

Siachen : A video showing soldiers breaking eggs with a hammer in frozen Siachen has gone viral on the internet.

In the viral video, a soldier is first seen tearing a tetra pack of fruit juice and revealing it to have solidified, and later breaks the eggs with a hammer as smashing them to the floor doesn’t work.

The footage is aimed to show the difficulties of life on the frozen military outpost. Siachen is a glacier in the eastern Karakoram range in the Himalayas where the Line of Control (LoC) between India and Pakistan ends. The army has deployed a brigade in the area where some posts are located at an altitude of 6,400 metres.

Watch the viral video below:

The Indian Army has been controlling the Siachen glacier since April 13, 1984 when Operation Meghdoot — the code name for a military action — was launched to capture the peaks by defeating the Pakistan Army.
