On Friday, Indian Army major Mukund Varadarajan gave his life for the country while fighting militants in an ambush in Shopian, 6km from Srinagar. And Captain S Srinivasan, a pilot from Air India was given the responsibility to fly the body from Delhi to Chennai to his parents.
But Captain Srinivasan did something beyond his duty. He wrote a moving condolence letter addressing the martyr’s parents as ‘Dearest Father and Mother”. The raw emotion of the letter is enough to drive the strongest of men to tears.
