“Fauji kids are truly impressive. They live all the challenges of military life, but they never signed up for it. They move houses, they change schools, and they adapt to constantly-changing neighbourhoods. Frequent moves are a way of life for the fauji child. It is never easy to say goodbye to friends and familiar routines, to begin again in a new school, a new neighbourhood - and sometimes a new country!” Handa wrote.

Hands wrapped her post by expressing her appreciation and love for her kids. “Love and respect to my little darling and thanks for being not so fussy baby and supporting me and your dad always,” she shared. The post is completed with a sweet image.
