The video released to congratulate people on the occasion of the new year talks also about the challenges faced by security personnel — difficult weather conditions and the constant encounters with enemies to name a few.

In the video, while the Rafale and Sukhoi fighter jets get into a formation, the voiceover talks about the of an IAF soldier, “A little storm can make you panic. Your feet may tremble, seeing the storm. But a storm or tornado is nothing for the people who serve the nation with blood. When I am fighting for the protection of the country, I have a proud smile writ on my face and a passion to eliminate the enemy. I am a warrior of the IAF and it is my nature to leave death behind.”

The IAF posted this video on Twitter on 31 December, which has already garnered more than 11,000 views. The engagement includes more than 4,000 likes and more than 800 retweets. While sharing the video, the IAF wrote in the caption, “Happy New Year to all from the Indian Air Force.”
