Girish Sharma, a terminally ill 10-year-old boy from Sirsa, Haryana was granted his wish when he became Police Commissioner of Jaipur for a day on Thursday.

While in hospital from kidney disease, Sharma had expressed his desire to "Make a Wish Foundation" that he wanted to be Police Commissioner.

Jaipur Police Commissioner Janga Rao was more than happy to oblige, and readily agreed to relinquish his chair for a day.

“They think good about the police system, that's one reason why probably the small child thought of joining the police service and he wants to become a commissioner," he said.

The joys of Girish, who suffers from severe kidney infection can be seen in the video above, clad in full regalia, saluting the officers at the Jaipur Police Commissionerate, singing the patriotic Hindi song Nanha Munna Rahi Hoon.

“I don't know how police officials work, but it really feels good to be in uniform. It's not about power, but responsibility," said the 10-year-old, speaking to Times of India.

"I want to become a police officer ... I want to catch thieves," ANI quoted Girish as saying.

According to Hindustan Times, Girish has been receiving treatment for chronic kidney malfunction at the Sawai Mansingh Hospital for the past two months.

Girish’s father Jagdish Sharma said that his son had a bleak chance of surviving, and would need to continue medicines all his life. Witnessing his son’s dream being fulfilled was the happiest day of his life, he said.
