While it was definitely a personal achievement for me, what made it so special was seeing the joy and pride it gave my family”
“With our military background, I can't even explain what honor of this stature meant to me and my family. My Nani (grandmother), Bade Papa (eldest uncle), my mom, brother, and my mates and Mami (aunts) joined me that day and they were beyond thrilled to be at the iconic Rashtrapati Bhavan (the residence of the President) for the ceremony. Bade Papa came in uniform and looking at him as he stood beaming with pride, I truly understood what a moment it was for all of us. The only thing missing was my dad... even though he wasn’t physically there, I carried him with me. He was and is a big part of my journey...#20in2020 chopramm2001 siddharthchopra89 vimlaakhouri kmm2004 neelaakhouri #BrigVKChopra #nani” read the full note.
