This Republic Day, the Indian soldiers posted in Jammu and Kashmir's Siachen glacier got a delightful break from their mundane meals.
The pizza chain, Dominos, delivered hot pizzas at 20,000 feet for the soldiers manning the Indo-China border. "We are honoured to have served hot Domino’s pizzas to our brave Soldiers and Officers at Siachen as a gesture of our gratitude for their untiring service to the nation," Dominos wrote on Twitter.

After almost three months of planning, a team of 12 was flown on air force planes from Chandigarh to deliver the delicacies.
This kind act by the food chain was quickly lauded by the Twitterati.
