Major Akshay was an officer in the 51 Engineer Regiment and was martyred in Nagrota, Jammu in November’16 after terrorists, disguised in police uniforms, attacked his unit.

Leaving behind his wife Sangeeta and daughter Naina, his family has been struggling with the loss ever since.

However, the family continues to keep alive Major Akshay’s spirit and everything he fought for.

In a recent video posted by Akshay’s mother, his 6-year old daughter is seen recalling her father’s teaching about the Indian Army and it is brimming with patriotism!

In just a few seconds, little Naina makes us realise what crucial a role the Indian Army plays behind keeping us safe. Starting every sentence with “Army is…” she surely hasn’t forgotten any of her father’s words.

“Army is to make us love. Army is to fight with bad uncles. Army is to help us not get afraid. Army is some who does Jai Hind to everyone,” says Naina in the video.

The video has touched everyone’s heart and Netizens are proud of the Naina with lots of blessings coming her way.
