The Life of A Soldier
The life of a solider is based on selflessness and sacrifice. He is a great benefactor of the country and her people. We enjoy at our place doing our chorus and the soldier guards us from an aggression from outside forces. The country goes on her developmental programme only when there is peace, and peace is brought by the sincere efforts of a soldier who guards our borders.
When the war breaks out, everybody is called up to do his duty to the nation; as Nelson said about his country, “England expects every Englishman to do his duty.” This is true of all the countries. It was Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri who coined the slogan, “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” during the war with Pakistan in 1965.
Shastri Ji rightly respected the contribution of the armed forces by giving the slogan to the nation. Farmer produces our foodstuff and the soldier protects us from both external and internal strifes.
A soldier is the real friend of the nation. Everyone of us should have proper respect for him as it is he who writes the destiny of the country with his blood. How can we forget the great sacrifices of the soldiers in the Kargil conflict with Pakistan. How they got every inch of Indian land back to India is all a story of great adventure and heroism.
A soldier is the watchdog of the nation and is ready to perform any duty with which he may be entrusted, even at t he cost of his life. His life is very hard and he obeys any order that may be given to him. Lord Tennyson has summed the life of a soldier in his most memorable and immortal poem. The Charge of the Light Brigde”.
Theirs’ not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
