Mr Ganguly Writes: How can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods?
Indian army since its inception has triumphed in many battles, outnumbered, outflanked yet we achieved victory from the jaws of defeat. Our army has made us proud whenever the nation needed to defend or represent their interests. Indian army as an institution has been built not only on the values of sacrifice honor and courage; it has also been built on the principles of morality. This value has always made Indian army wise and righteous in victory. An army whose values run deeper than the hatred of a nation. Pakistan has been mutilating and beheading Indian soldiers since a long time it was Captain Saurabh Kalia in Kargil, beheadings after the Uri aftermath and most recently of our two brave soldiers’.
Indian army morals have been in question lately. The beheadings and mutilations of our brave army men have triggered a question in the minds of Indians why do we not take blood for blood why doesn’t Indian army mutilate terrorist or Pakistani soldiers. The values have been under scrutiny from political circles. The grief that families of mutilated soldiers are going through cannot be quantified. What is the Quantum of solace will the fallen sons of India be replaced if our army resorts to these savage means?
Our army is better than these savages, they are our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters serving in the army. The armed forces represent the best of our society. Their morality and sense of righteous that made them climb the seemingly unconquerable peaks of Kargil and intervene when there was a mass genocide in Bangladesh. Our army never backed out from a fight. They never let themselves deter from doing what is right hence we need to believe that army is more than a life taking job it’s a job which imbibes in you lessons for life. Indian army is a Gentleman’s army who in their righteous might can overcome obstacles take morality away from them it’s an army like any other.
