Bengaluru, Jan 6: A day after Martyr Lt Col Niranjan, who sacrificed his life fighting against terrorists in Pathankot, was laid to rest, his close friend has written an open letter to remind the citizens of India about the scarifies made by soldiers towards their nation.
The open letter aims at making the people of this country to realise the pain and grief of a solider's family. It is also a slap on the face of those who tried to malign Lt Col Niranjan' s sacrifice.
The blog also narrated how soldiers live in extremes of conditions while serving the nation but people tend to forget it.
Sending a strong message to the people the open letter said, "our soldiers scarifies should not be left in vain. Rather than changing profile on Facebook in honour of the any issue other than the real issues of India we should stand together to fight back against the terror."
Here is the Full text of the open letter:
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"
