Watch: Video of army officer gives last salute to his mother before retiring will make you cry
The bond between a son and his mother is that of love, of course, and a lot of other things. While the son is young, he looks at his mother as his protector and nurturer. The roles reverse when the son grows older. It is just a super beautiful bond that actually cannot be described in words. Well, you must be thinking about why we are talking about this all of a sudden. So, a video of an Indian army officer offering the last salute to his mother before retiring has gone viral online. And, it will make you cry happy tears.
The now-viral video was shared on Instagram by Major General Ranjan Mahajan. In the clip, he can be seen ringing the bell and entering his mother's house. The officer was in his uniform and marched towards his mother who was sitting on a sofa. She was delighted upon seeing her son, who saluted her smartly. The mother-son duo then hugged each other and the entire moment was just too heartwarming.
"Final salute to my mother before hanging my uniform. We drove down from Ambala to Delhi and it was a total surprise to my mother, who had given birth and made me worthy of this life and uniform to serve my motherland with pride for 35 years. Given an opportunity will always be ready to serve the elite Indian Army once again." Ranjan Mahajan captioned the post.
The video amassed 5 lakh views after being shared online. Instagram users were moved after watching the clip and showered their love in the comments section.
