Whenever an army man of our country has been martyred while fighting terrorists at the borders, every single one of our country has cried. But who is the most affected? Their family. A family that loses its support system, its backbone, its pride. But how the family tackles such situations is what catches the eye. Not only is it about accepting realities and moving forward but also living their dreams and last wishes. Today’s story is one of those precious picks.
Jyoti Nainwal, a 32-year-old woman from Dehradun that has changed her life from being a housewife to a lieutenant in 3 years. 3 years back tana husband Nayak Deepak Nainwal Kashmir lo jarigina oka terrorist encounter lo chanipoyaru. He was shot in his spine and his chest 3 times. Yet, almost 40 terrorists tho fight chesina tarvata, tana injuries severe avvadam tho martyr aiyyaru.
Ee news valla family ki pedha shock laa tagilindhi. Her wife was left shattered with 2 really little kids. The same year she decided to join the armed forces and fulfill her husband’s wish to serve our country and also pay a tribute to her martyr husband.

She said “Beta, take this situation as an opportunity. Don’t raise them by giving others’ examples, but set yourself as an example in front of them and make them feel proud. Teach them to sail through the ups and downs of life.”

Her two kids, the 9-year-old daughter Lavanya and the 7-year-old son Reyansh both were seen cheering for her mother with extreme pride in their hearts dressed up in army uniforms.
“I’m feeling very proud of my mumma, she always used to say that she will become an Army officer, and today she has fulfilled her dream. She is the best mother in the world, I love her very much” her daughter Lavanya said while speaking to the media.
Her courage and willpower to do this are truly amazing. To talk about how the inspiration to do this started, she said
“I never thought I’ll go for a job as I was a homemaker. Only when my husband was in the hospital, I saw how the Army takes care of their soldiers. So, I decided to join the Army and my husband’s Mahar Regiment helped. I want to tell the wives of other martyrs that we should live in a way that our children don’t need to take anyone else as their inspiration”

Her husband has been her guiding force and her strength through all of this. A man she is extremely proud of being a wife to. While talking to the media about her husband, she said
“He gifted us a life of pride which I am trying to carry forward. I’d like to thank my husband’s regiment. They stand with me at every step and treat me like a daughter. For brave women, I’d like to become a mother not for birth but for deed, and whatever I live for, will be a gift to my children.”
What a lady. What an inspiration she has set for the world. Every single one of us shall rejoice over the wonderful woman our country has.
