As a soldier!

Every year we celebrate Indian Army Day on January 15. And today, it’s another January. Let us salute all the heroes who are protecting us every day. 

Here’s a little poem as a tribute for all Indian Soldiers.

As a soldier!


Half Broken! Half Mended!

He only exhibited courage in his eyes

Never a single drop of tears

That falls over his heart every day. 

When half of his heart lamented

To see his loved ones.

Half of his heart get mended

To save his land, 

As a soldier. 



His youth is falling

His desires are calling

His life is crawling

He never complained

He never get worried


Neither his youth nor his desires

Is important to his life, 

As a soldier. 



A thunderstorm hits him every night

On looking at his family photo

On thinking about a dinner together

On counting all unfixable desires

He fixed himself to save his land

From all the thunder and storm

Round the clock every day

By holding his head high

As a soldier. 



I dunno him

He isn’t my family 

He isn’t my friend

I do respect for his

Half heart that laments for his family

Half heart that’s mended for us

Yeah! We should pray for him

We should respect him

As a soldier.
