The Proud Tri-Colour

Yet again, here is another composition from me on the brave hearts, who strive for the nation’s pride despite of believing that they have their own personal lives. Starting from the freedom fighter to the today’s soldier, I thank one and all for being there for our country’s sake.

First of all A Happy Independence day to a u all…

I have started today with reading the news about the brave hearts, who are being honored for giving their best to their motherland. The Ashok Chakra, Kirti Chakra, Shaurya Chakra have been given to the soldiers, in recognition of their services. I’m proud to say my hearty congratulations to all of them.

I remember the moments when Mrs. Hemanth Karkare busted in to tears while taking the Ashok Chakra from the president on behalf of her husband, who was awarded posthumously, in recognition of his services during the Mumbai terrorist attacks last year. I remember shedding tears on hearing that Major. Sandeep Unnikrishnan, the NGO commando, who had sacrificed his life during the same operation, was just married a week before from then.

“Though no one in our family had ever served in armed forces, Mohit was fascinated by Army right since childhood. A champion boxer and swimmer during his military academy days, he spent around six out of his 10 years in uniform battling militants in J&K...he had become a counter-terrorism expert...he was very brave” look at the words of a proud father of Late. Major Mohit Sharma, who is honored with the Ashok Chakra this time.

It is unstoppable if we start saying about the different life stories of these guys, but it has to be stopped now, I regret. I’m becoming very emotional as I write this.
I’m not in Indian defense now, nor can I be able to take part in it now. But I hope that I would become a proud wife of a person who would risk his life for our mother land, or may be a proud mother or grand mother some day, of he who may serve the Indian defense at the inspiration of his own life and my love.

One point strikes my mind at the moment, what was the success that had come to these guys when they were alive. They had been fighting for the nation, and finally succeeded in doing it at the cost of their lives. And today they are no more to celebrate their brave moments, when their services are being recognized. It is applicable to life as well, I guess. Enjoy every moment.
To smile, don’t wait for a success. Success is about the satisfaction that you attain, not necessarily be the recognition or a win.

All in all, it is very nice to see the proud tri-colour waving her wishes to her people. She is happy, she is brave, and she is proud of them.
Let me tell you, to be a proud citizen of your country, you need not to be a freedom fighter or a person from the defense always. You have to be what you are and serve every small aspect that is at your hands. Some people are meant for serving the nation at the border, some are meant for representing their country as per their skills, some are meant for leading their country in political aspects, some are meant for serving people, some are meant for educating the nation, some are meant for preparing the young hearts for a better tomorrow, some are meant for writing about their motherland for the sake of future generations and etc. And last but not the least, some are meant for sharing their lives with all those people mentioned above and some other may be meant for serving their best for all these. Every person who does his duty is in someway contributing to his motherland ultimately. Let us do it with heart and be the proud citizens of our motherland.

Once again, Happy Independence Day and have a bright day. Let us make the Tri-colour be proud of us as well.
Whatever you are, she loves you the same, and it is your responsibility to give it back with your deeds.

Thanks for your time.

Good one Pramoda,

It will give good insight to the people about the ways they can serve the Motherland. Usually in childhood days everyone thought to do something in some manner to his/her motherland at some moment. But as the days goes on due to various factors they may end up with some other profession.

As you mentioned one can contribute to the Nation's development by serving every small aspect that is at their hands.

Happy Independence day

i find it surprising to know that u hoped to become a proud wife of a person who would risk his life....


it is also rare to find such individuals who want their very own to sacrifice for the motherland

by doing our duty we are actually paying respect to all the soldiers who are braving all odds to protect us.

u made me think of the brave sons of this land for a while..thank u

Hi Pramoda..

First of all ...

Happy Independence day to you and all of the people.

Thank you for such a heart felt words and I am very much proud of you that you would like to become a wife of a brave heart who sacrifies his life to our Nation and for ourselves.

We need to salute to our freedom fighters who has given us freedom to live in this country and to live as per wish and to do what ever we want. Yes you are right everybody should do some deed to some person which is nothing serving our Nation and giving devote to our motherland.

I remember, yesterday we had a kite festival in our office, ofcourse it will be there every year on Aug 14th. I dont know about all the persons who played it, while playing and flying the kites I have recognised the symbollic representation of this Kite festival is we have a freedom to fly upto what extent you want to go high by taking some support from the persons you want and from your parents and wellwishers. Also you have freedom to give support to other persons to develop them to go up and up.

@ To smile, don’t wait for a success. Success is about the satisfaction that you attain, not necessarily be the recognition or a win.

Well written words... Keep it up .

Happy Independence day once again

Pramoda,

Read 3 posts now. Reality Show Part II - True, the participants have to abide by rules including show of respect to judges even when being ridiculed. Giving votes in the hands of viewers is good as well as bad. Votes can be manipulated too as brought out in some cases and also influence of regionalism is another stumbling block. Option could be to give certain weightage to votes and balance to judges decision. Saina - I am sure she will do wonders soon and make all of us proud. Now on this one - Very true, one need not be a freedom fighter or in Defence Forces to serve the nation. As long as one is proud of being an Indian and carries out his or her work diligently and judiciously he or she is contributing towards well being of the nation. I always say that apart from parents it is very important for teachers to mould our future citizens for taking up role to lead in whatever field they choose. You can do a lot by the way of that being a teacher and also a writer. If you wish may we discuss it little more?

Take care

PS : And sincere thanks for your kind support to Services. May we see you soon as part of that big family.

In short, we have to do our duty sincerely,honestly. If everyone of us do our duty sincerely only then a perfect India can we created.

Happy Independence Day to you.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi Pramoda..A very thoughtful post. I see you feel strongly about this.

A person I idolise in my family is in the armed forces too. And I am very proud of him. But panic and anxiety attack me whenever I hear of problems in the region where he works. There is nothing else he would rather be doing than serving his country.

You write sincerely. Will come back soon to read more.

Have fun!

Hi..

Thanks for your appreciation.

There will be a perspective meaning for everything in this world. When you recognise it you successfully give value for it. Otherwise your mind is a black hole.
