A video of a father shedding tears of joy while dropping his daughter off at her new college in New Delhi, India, has gone viral

The heartwarming video was shared by the daughter herself, Preksha, on Instagram, where her father can be seen crying beside her mum, while they sit in a rickshaw to Preksha's new campus in Delhi University.

"POV (point of view): You made your parents proud," reads the video's onscreen text.

"They were dropping me off at 'our' dream destination – Miranda House College, Delhi University," Preksha explained in her post's caption.

"It was my first day, so we were just exploring the campus and suddenly I noticed tears rolling down my father's eyes. He was so overwhelmed with happiness and was on another level of emotions."

The daughter also thanked her parents for supporting her to get to where she is today

"The fact that his jigar ka tukda (beloved daughter) will be living far away from him was a bitter truth too," she wrote.

"But those tears told me that all the sacrifices I made, all the hard work I did, each and everything to achieve this dream, is all worth it in the end. All I can say is I would do anything to see your smiley faces and sparkling eyes!"

"Thank you, mumma papa! I love you."
