Every man has lots of ups and downs in his life. He has to take responsibilities of his family, career and life gradually as he grow up. A man work day and night for fulfilling the needs of his family. But here, I am talking about the real men of the society – our Jawans, The Indian Army. This blog is a tribute to our soldiers.
You must be facing a lot of problems in your life, you must be having difficulty in getting a job, you might be having marital problems ,even failing a subject or just having a bad day at work. You must be feeling negative, dark and even wondering why the god has designed life so hard for you. But, think about the people who are risking their life at the border ?
So that our nation can sleep in peace safe and sound. What about their family, their problems ? They sacrificed everything for our nation and for us.
You wake up planning about your activities for the day .On the other hand our Jawan is even unsure whether he will get to see the next sunrise or not.Tweet
If you can’t appreciate them at least don’t disrespect them – They sacrifice a lot for us each and every day.
Here we are who can’t even imagine a life without Insta and Facebook and on the other hand our Jawan’s are fighting day and night in extreme weather conditions. Their life is completely dedicated to their Motherland. They too have family – a wife, kids and parents. Hats off to their family as well who let their man go and let him fight for his true love and passion – Mother India.
They are not paid what they deserve, and they never complained about it. The only thing they asked in return was respect. They deserve all the respect in the world. Instead of treating our soldiers with gratitude and respect, Our soldiers are insulted by their own people- the stone pelters who threw stone at our jawans. On one hand they are faced with the conflict with the terrorists at J&K, and on the other hand they have to face their own people.
Soldiers work 4 to 5 times more than a corporate worker. They have to face all the extreme conditions. Even when they are not fighting at the border, they have to face political twisting in the system. They have to obey the orders in all conditions. Never question their seniors is what they are taught.
Killing at command, no questions asked and said- Not easy at all. Waking up early everyday, training even in most drastic condition, fighting at the border, staying away from family. Not an easy task at all. Hats off to our jawans and their families.
Living in tents for days, lacking food, hygiene and even shelter in many cases- Our jawans never complained and never failed to make our nation proud.
There are so many soldiers who can’t even see their family for months, some have their child born when they are busy fighting for the country. A lot of respect to them for sacrificing so much for us. They are the real heroes.
This will Make every Indian proud of our Indian Army.
