Woman Army Major walks to husband’s funeral; with five-day old girl; Twitterati reacts
A snapshot of a woman dressed in Army uniform with her five-day old daughter walking towards funeral of her Indian Air force officer has left the Twitterati emotional.
The picture is of Major Kumud Dogra who can be seen attending the funeral in her full uniform along with her daughter on Wednesday.
It need be recalled that an IAF chopper with two pilots on board had crashed on February 15 in Assam’s Majuli island.
Both of the pilots were killed.
The microlight aircraft crashed near Jorhat after taking off on a routine sortie.
A court of inquiry was subsequently ordered.
It is suspected that the crash took place due to technical reasons.
Here is what the Twitterati wrote on the picture
In her arms is her five day old baby and her feet marching towards the dead body of her husband Wng Cmdr D Vats…
A rare epitome of courage…
