Screengrab from the video.

A young lady’s visit to the National War Memorial in New Delhi turned out to be an intensely emotional experience as she came across her own brother’s name on one of the plaques of fallen heroes. It was a moment of pride and perhaps flooded her with memories of the happy childhood years spent with the braveheart as tears rolled down her cheeks. 

The moment, captured on camera and shared on Instagram, has gone viral.

The lady’s husband wrote: “Today we randomly planned a trip to Delhi and after roaming in Connaught Place, I told my wife let’s visit the National War Memorial.”

He said that while he was shooting photos of plaques of Kargil War heroes, Captain Vikram Batra and Major Ajay Singh Jasrotia, he asked his wife, Shagun, to find MVC Captain Vijayant Thapar’s name.

He suddenly heard his wife calling,  “Look it’s bhaiya’s name,” pointing to a plaque with the name Captain K D Sambyal.

“Shagun had no idea about this, not even her family knew, she was surprised and emotional at the same time,” her husband explained. “Even I couldn’t control myself…”

Captain K D Sambyal was part of the 193 Field Regiment and hailed from the Samba district, erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir.
