When Nirmala Sitharaman gave Chinese soldiers at Nathu La a Hindi lesson

In a video shared by the official Twitter handle of the Defence Ministry of India, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was seen teaching Chinese soldiers posted near the Sikkim border how to say namaste, a traditional form of greeting in India. In the video, the minister is seen explaining the meaning of "Namaste" to PLA soldiers stations along the border. As it turns out, the Chinese soldier nearly guessed the answer correctly.

She also said about "acknowledging" Chinese soldiers who were waving from across the border.
