It has been done before and it always happen like that. A soldier sacrifices his life, people talk for a week about him, news channels show them on the news for two days and we forget them, the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for us. From changing status on Facebook to write few updates, and it gets over. What we do for their grieving wives, parents and kids. Nothing, as we all know. Writing this won’t be wrong that our soldiers sacrifice their lives for an ungrateful nation which forgets them as soon as they can.
Showing same anger, here is the letter of late Martyr Lt. Col Niranjan Kumar’s friend’s which is written posthumously to him and it makes us feel disgusted and disappointed.
The Letter by Lt Col. Niranjan’s friend.
My Coursemate, my Sutta Pal, Barrack-Type and Punishment-Type
Wish I could turn back the clock for you, Moron!
I would have ensured that instead of CDSE you would have cleared your Civil Services Exam. Your daughter would have had a father to watch her grow up. Your wife would have had a husband to grow old with. And you would never had had to fight to get a decent pension(Not that you would have needed one– everyone knows the price of a Babu’s signature).
I wish that you had not been a warrior, a leader of men and a guardian of an ungrateful nation. I wish you had been a pen-pushing Babu who charged you just for doing his job. I wish that you had not been an Officer And A Gentleman earning a hardship allowance of Rs.32000 in Siachen. Instead you should have been a blood-sucking Babu earning Rs.72000 HARDSHIP ALLOWANCE for enjoying the salubrious climes of Shillong or Guwahati. Or I wish that you had been a Corporate Honcho, who earns thrice your salary for doing one-fourth of what you do.
I wish that you had been an AAM AADMI for whom nothing matters beyond the next increment,the next mobile phone or the next vehicle that he is going to buy.
I wish that you had been anything except what you chose to become – A Real Man, A Professional Soldier, A Leader Of Men, A True Son Of This Ungrateful Nation, Sworn to protect it at all cost. I Wish…I Wish… But You Are No Longer There…. So I can only pray that in your next life, you decide to do something worthwhile. Something… Anything…. Just Don’t Repeat The Mistakes You Made In This One..
R.I.P Brother… We’ll Meet In The Afterlife.”
We salute Lt Col. Niranjan and his family for ultimate sacrifice. Jai Hind!
