On a day when the rest of the world is celebrating Valentine's Day, a daughter's love for her martyred father has been going viral on social media. Over two years after the death of Major Askshay Girish in a terror attack in Jammu & Kashmir's Nagrota in 2016, his mother Meghna Girsih shared a video of his daughter Naina remembering her father and repeating the meaning of "army" that he had explained to her.

When Major Girish, a resident of Bangalore, was killed, Naina was two-and-a-half-years old. According to the caption posted along with the video, the footage was shot a year after her father's death. In the footage, little Naina can be seen telling everyone the meaning of "Army".

“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,” Naina can be heard saying.

Naina's grandmother Mrs Girish wrote that "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 adorable and heartbreaking video has garnered over 10,000 likes on Twitter.

Twenty jawans were killed and 40 injured when a suicide bomber rammed a Scorpio car laden with 350 kg of explosives into a CRPF convoy in Awantipora town of Pulwama district on Thursday. This is one of the worst attacks since the 2001 Jammu and Kashmir legislative assembly car bombing.
