'Missing You Papa': Daughter's Moving Note For Brigadier Killed With Gen Rawat

New Delhi:

Aashna Lidder, daughter of Brigadier Lakhwinder Singh Lidder who died in a chopper crash in December last year, recently penned a heartfelt note remembering her father. Brigadier LS Lidder was among the 14 people, including former Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat, who was killed in the IAF helicopter crash in Tamil Nadu's Nilgiri Hills.

Posting a photo of her father on Twitter, Aashna Lidder wrote, “Missing you today Papa. As much as I try, my mind always takes me back to the thought of how you would have been somewhere else today. But I hope whatever you're watching right now and wherever that is from; you're content with it. Life was good to us, through you. Love you.”

Reacting to the post, a user said, “More courage to you. Papa's blessings will always be with you he will be watching you. Let almighty give you all success and fulfil all your dreams. God bless you.”

Another said, “Very heart-touching words. I can empathize with you. Your father must be blessing you from his present abode. A part of him will always be with you to guide and bless you. Take care.”

Aashna Lidder's tweet came on the day when the government announced the appointment of the new Chief of Defence Staff (CDS). Lt General Anil Chauhan (Retired) will succeed General Bipin Rawat. 

This is the first time that a retired army officer has been appointed as the Chief of Defence Staff, the country's top military officer and leader of one of the world's largest armed forces. 
Lt Gen Chauhan, 61, had retired as Eastern Command Chief in May 2021 and was serving as the Military Advisor to the National Security Council.
