Army, Navy, Air force, the diamonds of a country Face unparalleled austerities of life.
Altruistically they stand like a colossal wall Guarding and defending their country
Caring neither for their life nor – Their beloved family Gallantly they fight for their Motherland!
For our comfort they lay down their life
Or get mutilated in doing so
But are we doing anything for their massive sacrifice?
It seems nothing!
Heedless of the sufferings of their family,
the martyrs- The maimed and the brutally killed
We completely forget – Had it not been for these valiant heroes
A cushy life would be just a far fetched wishful dream!
How very inconsiderate, callous and egoistic
We, the civilians have become!
Circumstances at times make -Vagrants of some of these robust heroes
Or Take to dangerous performances to earn their bread
An extremely pitiable condition some survive in
Is it for this hideous life they sacrificed all theirs?
Don’t we owe them anything better for our safety?
He, who should be the most highly paid
Gets a meagre salary for his sacrifice
He’s not spared from paying taxes too!
Often, on retirement a pauper’s life he lives while
The butter and cream on a golden platter
Is doled out to the undeserving lucky ones
Who not only have a sea of perks
But are exempted from paying taxes too!
Money is attracted to them so it isn’t their fault
Poor things can’t help it
That’s called being fortunate with Incessant flooding of fortune!
For generations no one in their family Needs to earn a single penny!
It would be a blessing
If only, what sacrifices such well wishers
Who demand of the populace Practiced what they preached!
Sports people get well rewarded for winning trophies
It’s said they are playing for the Nation!
So pray, may we know what are these Diamonds doing?
Are they staking their life for personal pleasure?
What a weird reasoning!
They jeopardized their life to no avail!
No one deserves rewards more than them-
Including moral and financial support.
True and honest patriots are none other than- The Army, the Navy and the Air Force people-
Along with their family, they are the main artery of a safe and peaceful life
Without their help no country could ever survive!
I salute and bow down to them and their family.
