Ignore earthly desires for nation's sake
Freedom of countrymen keeps him awake
Despite mother's care he cares mother country
Orphans they're when leaving military
Rain, snow, thorn are his bed
Parents gave birth for bloodshed
People share employment by religion and caste
Nation neglect them as waste
Election fetches members life long pension
But dedicated soldier earns life tension
Tombs are made for back-up barrens
Scattered corpse of soldiers in battle unknown
Are they not sons of their nation?
For poets it may be an imagination
If military is compulsory for every man
There may be feeling of fellowmen
If so called Gods reside in country’s border
Devotees would guard nation without fear.
