“Indian and Chinese troops are being withdrawn from friction points. Disengagement is happening. It is a good thing for both. Around 50,000 troops were deployed at high-altitude areas in harsh winter conditions. It was a difficult situation.”
Ladakh-based engineer Sonam Wangchuk, who inspired the character of ‘Phunsukh Wangdu’ in the Bollywood blockbuster “Three Idiots”, has developed a mobile solar-powered tent, accommodating 10 soldiers, for use by the Indian Army in high-altitude locations.
