Indian Air Force officer highlights the challenges 'Fauji Kids' face, her post is now viral

Ms. Niharika’s post quickly gained traction online as several people found it relatable.

An Indian Air Force (IAF) Squadron Leader’s heartfelt post on the challenges army children face in their lives, especially in their formative years, has gone viral on social media. The post was shared on LinkedIn by Niharika Handa on Thursday and has since received a lot of love and support from users. Her post described how the life of a child born into a defense family takes shape. She praised the courage of those born to parents working in the armed forces, writing that such children “live all the challenges of military life, but they never signed up for it”.

“Fauji children are truly impressive…They move houses, they change schools, and they adapt to ever-changing neighborhoods. Frequent moves are a way of life for the fauji child. Saying goodbye to friends and familiar routines is never easy, because to start again in a new school, a new neighborhood – and sometimes a new country!” wrote Mrs. Niharika.

Further, she talked about how Army kids say more goodbyes in their first year than the average person does in a lifetime. “The fact is that fauji children say goodbye more often in their first few years than the average person does in a lifetime. A big shoutout to all fauji children because through their courage and support they serve this nation too – and I proud of you all!” wrote the IAF Squadron Leader.

Ms. Niharika also praised her baby for carrying it all and shared a picture of her little one. “Love and respect to my little darling and thanks for being not so picky baby and always supporting me and your daddy,” she added.

It’s not just a part of life; it’s a beautiful skill they carry with them, making each new beginning a little easier . Niharika Handa – every goodbye became a chapter in my personal journey, adding depth to the person I am becoming,” commented one user.

“As a proud fauji kid, I can wholeheartedly relate to every word of this post. Military life has instilled in us a unique sense of resilience and adaptability. Moving house, changing schools, and embracing new neighborhoods are not only challenges, but opportunities to grow and learn,” said another.

A third user wrote: “Fauji kids are also the ones who form friendships very quickly. They mingle so quickly you don’t realize you just met them a few days or weeks ago,” while another said: “And they turn out to have a dynamic personality. Kudos to the brats.”
