Years ago while visiting Kohima War Cemetery in Nagaland, I saw one inscription that stayed etched in my heart forever. It read “When you go home tell them of us and say for your tomorrow we gave our today”. How true is that! Across the nation, soldiers of the Indian Army sacrifice their today for ensuring that India has a better future. They give up their family time to serve the nation and at times their lives too.
The memory of Pulwama attack is still fresh on the minds of the Indians. More than 40 jawans lost their lives in this catastrophic terrorist attack. There is nationwide outrage and agitation as people want retaliation.
Amidst this, one thing that we are again reminded about is the fact that soldiers deserve our respect more than anything. Following that feeling, industrialist Anand Mahindra shared a video that will certainly touch your heart. No, it is not a very video with high-end graphics and amazing actors. However, the short story shown in the video will touch your heart. Check it out for yourself!
Indeed, and I RT this in complete agreement with your emphasis on goodwill and generosity… https://t.co/13R7txrbGg

There are times when we are disturbed by the news of atrocities of a few people belonging to the defense forces. It is true that there are individuals who forget the responsibility that comes with the uniform. However, the entire constitution of the Indian Army cannot be judged with those few incidents.
Coming back to the video, we think it aptly defines the present mood of the nation. Also, it is an emotion that we should always carry. What do you think? Why don’t you share your thoughts in the comments below?
