Watch playful girl riding devotee's back during prayer inside mosque in northern India

This is the happy moment a small girl decided to ride on a man's back during prayer in India's northern Jammu and Kashmir state.

The video was shot on May 11 inside the historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, the summer capital of the state.

Visuals showed the small girl playfully climb on the man's feet and ride on his shoulder. It is believed the two are related as the man did not flinch while offering prayers.

The girl held on to the man and enjoyed being piggybacked. As the man bends to offer his prayer, the girl did too. This happened twice, however, during the third time, the girl lost her balance, rolled over and fell on the ground.

Meanwhile, the footage stuck a chord with social media users, who appreciated the content. Some users also recounted their experiences of when they were young.
