Dedicating Hindi poem penned by Makhanlal chaturvedi “Pushp Ki Abhilasha” to all the soldiers. The soul stirring poem accurately represents the pride, passion, dedication and patriotism towards our country. This is one of the best poems I still remember from my schoolbook, not because of its contents but because of its feel.

Chah Nahin Mai SurBala Ke Gehnon Mein Guntha Jaaon
Chah Nahin Premi Mala Mein Bindh, Pyari Ko Lalchaon
Chah Nahin Samraton Ke Shav Par, He Hari Dala Jaaon
Chah Nahin Devon Ke Sar Par Chadhon, Bhagya Par Itraoon
Mujhey Tod Lena Banmali, Us Path Par Tum Dena Phaink
Matru Bhoomi Per Sheesh Chadhaney,Jis Path Jaayen Veer Anek

When Translated in English:

I do not wish to be a part of the ornaments of the daughter of Gods.

I do not wish to lure sweet love being a part of lover's garland for her.
I do not wish O God, to be offered on the dead-bodies of great kings
I do not wish to adorn the foreheads of Gods and be proud of my luck.
O Gardener! Please pluck me and throw me on the street
where the brave men offering their head for the motherland tread!

An all time childhood favorite poem, and I am sharing as a tribute to all the soldiers who lost their lives in one of the most atrocious terrorist attack in our nation, that on of 26/11 in Mumbai.An attack so brazen that left the country reeling in shock for days afterward.

They do everything for country, yet time and again we forget they too are normal people just like you and me.People who have shed their luxuries for their country and lead a tough life that is beyond our Imaginations.They are our soldiers. The protection and warmth we feel, the securityof living in our country is noticed but not the sacrifices that it cost.Unlike the politicians bureaucrats or any other common people, the solidiers cannot get away with the excuse, we try our best.They just win or they lose.

If you worship cricket idol or bollywood star think for a moment there are thousands of people who sacrificied their lifes for our country who deserve much more than them.We must salute them for their sacrifice and let their deaths not to go waste unacknowledged and unnoticed.
