The Indian Army

The Indian Army

A Poem by pragya gaur
"

By these words I just want to thank our indian army for their priceless sacrifices

"
We play holi with colours,
And soldiers play it with guns and rifles.
At the risk of their own life,
They give us comfortable sleep and life.

A soldier is never sure of his life ,
And will he ever meet his daughter, son and wife.
Hats off and a dozen of salute,
Is nothing above a soldier and his sacrifice.
Besides a soldier his family also compromises,
Children sometimes starve to spent time with their father,
Mother's sometime don't even get to see dead bodies of their only son.
And what to say about the love of a wife,
Her sacrifices and compromises are just priceless.
After death a soldier is only remembered for a month or two,
Media is told to stay away too.
Payment of his life is done by some amount of money,
Is that all our duty towards our indian army?
This often chills my spine,
And brings a million years in my eyes.

A great salute to the Indian Army,
From the bottom of my heart.
I would help them anytime if they need me,
With each and everything I have.

Your words of the sacrifice of both the soldier and their families holds true of all soldiers - of any country. This is one of your better pieces, and I'm glad you sent me the read request. My own husband is a disabled veteran (United States Navy) and I can relate to every word. Thanks for a good read and kudos for acknowledging this special group of people.

This is such a beautiful tribute to the Indian Army Pragya! Your words express so well the suffering and deprivation imposed on soldiers and their families, with the threat of death ever-present."Hats off and a dozen of salute is nothing above a soldier and his sacrifice"-you are so right. Be careful of repeating the same word too many times in your poems (life). I am proud you are writing so well! Good job!

Thanku dear
I so totally agree with you. It is such a shame that we give so little recognition to those men and women who often must sacrifice their lives to protect us. This shame is compounded by the same neglect that is foisted upon the brave women, mothers, wives and children of these protectors.
