    US and Indian troops dance on ww2 march song.

    A group of Indian soldiers were joined in by their American counterparts in singing the Army's favourite marching song, 'Badluram ka badan zameen ke neeche hai' during a joint military exercise in the US.

    The Indian and American soldiers broke into a dance while singing the popular marching song dedicated to Badluram, a soldier in the Assam regiment who was killed during World War II.

    But did the American soldiers recognise the tune from their own country’s ‘John Brown’s Body’ (and ‘Battle of the Hymn Republic’)?

    According to legend, Badluram was a soldier with the Assam Regiment during the Second World War. His untimely death meant that other members of his regiment could have Badluram’s share of rations at a time the Japanese Army had surrounded them, cutting off their food supply.
    The quarter master did not report the death of Sepoy Badluram and faithfully collected all the ration and when Regiment was surrounded by Japanese the supplies kept Regiment alive.

    When link-up happened the Happy Soldiers coined the song in the Memory of Late Soldier Badluram.

    The British Commanding officer Maj M. G. Procter properly arranged the Song in 1946.
    Arranging tune on US famous tunes.

    Assam Regiment is made of soldiers of 7 North Eastern states . And has majority of Christian soldiers.

      The Assamtt Regiment.

      The regiment was raised on 15 June 1941 in Shillong by Lt. Col. Ross Howman to meet the claim of the then undivided state of Assamfor its own fighting unit and to counter the threat of the Japanese invasion of India. The area of Elephant Falls in Shillong was chosen to raise the first battalion and it was there, under British instructors, that the first troops were trained. The initial draft of the regiment was drawn from undivided Assam, and consisted of the doughty Ahoms who had proved their martial prowess by defeating the Mughals at the Battle of Saraighat and the hardy, tough and cheerful Nagas, Mizos, Kukis, Garos, Meiteis and other tribals. Later, the Adis, Nishis, Monpas, other tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, domiciled Gorkhas and Sikkimese were also drafted into the regiment and, today, the regiment can boast of being composed of troops of diverse customs, cultures, languages, traditions and ethos belonging to the seven states of the northeast and Sikkim.

        Since its formation in 1941 it has performed very nicely and many members of the Regiment laid down the life for the country.

        Recently Havildar Hangpan Dada killed 4 Pakistani terrorists before succumbing to his wounds . He was awarded second highest military Decoration Ashok Chakrs.

        Havildar Hangpan Dada AC (2 October 1979 — 27 May 2016) was a soldier in the Assam Regiment of the Indian Army. He was posthumously awarded the Ashoka Chakra, India's highest peacetime military decoration in August 2016.[1]

        On the night of 26 May 2016, Dada, as Sabu Post Commander of 35 Rashtriya Rifles, while establishing a stop along with his section at 12,500 feet, led a charge on hiding terrorists in the Shamshabari Ranges in Naugam, Jammu and Kashmir, resulting in the neutralisation of four heavily armed terrorists.[2] He along with his team spotted the movement of terrorists in the area and engaged them in a fierce encounter that went on for over 24 hours. He charged at the spot where terrorists were and killed two terrorists on the spot and later the third one after a hand-to-hand scuffle as they slid down the hill towards the Line of Control. Dada sustained a sudden burst of automatic fire from the hiding fourth terrorist, receiving a gun shot wound. He continued to pin down the fourth terrorist and later succumbed to his injuries received before wounding the terrorist.[2]
