Siachen braveheart: 'Army was his life and she silently stood as the military wife'

By Vicky

The military is his life. So I pledge to support my hero and stand among the silent ranks known as The MILITARY WIFE.

This is a line extracted from a beautiful, touching and very thought provoking poem known as, 'The Silent Ranks'.

Military was life and she stood beside

OneIndia is running a campaign to ensure that Mahadevi gets a job as promised by the government of Karnataka. The campaign also seeks that the memorial for the braveheart comes up at the earliest. Read OneIndia.com's extensive coverage HERE.

Mahadevi wants to live a life of dignity and seeks a job. She said in this very thought-provoking interview with my colleague, Anusha Ravi that she will sweep the floor if it meant she earned a living. All I want is a life of dignity she said.

This poem, The Military Wife, holds good for any wife whose husband is away at the border on national duty. We speak about the hardships of the Indian soldier. But do we once bother to think what those waiting at home for them go through. It is a tough life. There is anxiety about whether their loved one would return home. There are questions from their child asking about the father.

The Military Wife

This poem sums it all up. As it says, the military is life and I stand among the silent ranks known as the military wife.
