Role of Soldier in Defence of India
Every Indian contributes something as far as the defence of India is concerned. But the role which a soldier plays in defending and protecting the borders of India is really unparalleled. A soldier is the most disciplined lot in the nation. On him depends, to a great extent, the security and the stability of the nation.
A soldier’s life, no doubt, is very difficult and hard. It is he who obeys the orders of his commanders and does what is ordered by them. A soldier is a man, who keeps night-long vigils on the borders even in the face of great and grave dangers, for, he stands heroically before the force of the enemies.
A soldier faces death bravely. He fights to the last, in order to save his motherland. He sacrifices everything for the sake of the nation. It is he who has to live miles away from his family. It is he who gets into the jaws of death while defending his country.
His life is not a bed of roses at all, rather it is a bed of thorns. With his meagre income, he feeds himself and his family. The life of a soldier is really very hard, but he is not scared of it. For him, the defence of the country is the highest of his duties and responsibilities.
In war, he fights bravely but at the same time, he helps the civilian population. The role which Indian soldier plays during each international war is exemplary. One soldier helped and assisted even the civilian population as they always acted in accordance with the complete military traditions.
A soldier is always facing death. He never shirks responsibility. He fights in the most difficult terrains, on hills and mountains, in plains and forests. The defence of the country is his primary mission. The role of a soldier in safeguarding the frontiers of his motherland is unique. He lives and dies for the Nation.
