Richa Chadha's Grandfather

15th January which is today is celebrated as the Indian Army Day and actress Richa Chadha took to her social media to share a picture of her own maternal grandfather who served in the Indian army in his time. Her grandfather was a freedom fighter, a surgeon and served the Indian army for all the wars fought till 1971.

Richa said in her post – “It’s Indian Army Day. This is my Nanaji. Lt Col Dharamveer Prasad. He was a freedom fighter and then a surgeon in the Indian army post independence. He fought all wars till 1971 and even took a bullet in the leg in one. I miss him, he passed away in 2007. In these times of global jingoism, I miss his quiet dignity, his peaceful strength and his commitment to the cause of humanity”.
