You have never lived until
You have almost died,
And for those who choose to fight,
Life has a special flavor,
The protected will never know!!!
“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it,
It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died to protect it.”
They crushed our enemies and our sorrow,
They gave up their today for our tomorrow,
They wore a smile and laid down their lives,
A salute to these gallant soldiers and their sacrifice,
They are fallen but not forgotten !!
Let every Indian,
No matter who,
No matter where,
Take a pledge on this,
The 53rd Independence day,
To do his or her duty,
To the fullest,
To his or her family,
To society at large,
And to our great nation!!
