Mumbai, July 8: In Hindi, There is a saying, ‘Manav Seva hi Prabhu Seva Hai’ which means service to humanity is service to God. The biggest example for this is the pictures and video in which Amarnath Yatris are blessing and saluting the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) personnel for their dedication towards each and every Yatri during their pilgrim. In the last news we saw, ITBP personnel braving shooting stones at a snow slope by placing Shield wall to ensure the safe passage of Amarnath Yatris on Baltal route.
