Kumar's mother also contributed to show how much pride the family takes being patriotic and loyal to the army despite the irreparable loss it experienced. Kumar's father and grandfather too had served in the Indian Army.

In the 52-second video which was shared by Naina's grandmother on Twitter (she tweets @megirish2001) it is seen the little girl is speaking about the army - the values it holds and what it symbolises - and she also says that she was taught them by her father.

"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," she says.
