While the whole India was celebrating the day of love on February 14, it was a black day in Kashmir’s Pulwama as an SUV loaded with 200 kilograms of explosives rammed into a CRPF bus on the Srinagar-Jammu highway and killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.
While people on twitter are furious over the Kashmir terror attack and are appealing to the Modi Government to avenge the death of brave Indian soldiers another surgical strike, here is a 3- year old Naina, daughter of a martyred soldier in a terrorist attack, who explains best the meaning of “Army” on Twitter.
The beautiful yet heart-breaking video was uploaded by the girl’s grandmother, Meghna Girish and is winning hearts of people on social media as it teaches a great deal about love and respect for the country and its countrymen. It also captures the innocence, compassion, and faith that we all can learn from a child.
The video is a tribute to Major Akshay Girish from his family, who was martyred in a terror attack on November 26, 2016, in Jammu & Kashmir’s Nagrota. A resident of Bangalore, when Major Akshay was killed, Naina was only two-and-a-half-years old.
The caption mentions that the video was shot a year after her father’s death and the adorable video shows how little Naina is remembering her father’s words and explaining the meaning of what Army is..
A year after Akshay’s martyrdom, Naina recollects conversations with her papa.
Here she teaches us what ‘Army is…’
This random video captures innocence and faith.
Love is an emotion.
Her papa’s love for the Army and Countrymen also stays within her.

The video is leaving many teary-eyed and can be some comfort to us when the country is shrouded in fear, hatred, and violence.
I cried a little. I am a father of a 3 years old myself and I can empathize. May Naina achieve best in her life.
