Hello Every One!!!
Most of the time, I choose to write on the topics in my blog which are generally figments of my imagination. However I try to deal in such a way that everyone can connect it with real life be it my poems, articles or narrations.
Today my topic is not the product of imagination, rather a real, unpleasant situation which our nation is currently facing. We all know that sovereignty of a country is of paramount importance and people of the country can go to any extent to preserve it, if they have any nationalist fervor residing in them.
But there is a part of state in India whose majority of citizens belonging from a particular community (I am not shying away from the reality and accepting it unlike main stream media) posses a secessionist tendency and in recent days it is full on display. Yes Sir/Ma’am, I am talking about a special state of India, Jammu and Kashmir.
Every day we hear news that stones are pelted on our soldiers, schools are burnt, weapons are snatched from our Jawans, banks are looted, government property is being destroyed, killing of terrorist is being celebrated as martyrdom, flags of Pakistan and ISIS is waved, militants are protected and patronized by the locals and so on and so forth.
Recently a video has surfaced in social media, in which one of our soldier was kicked and slapped by some local resident of Kashmir valley, when he was returning from his duty of election. He had a rifle in his hand, yet he remained silent and faced the onslaught.
Any nationalist’s heart would melt to see the treatment with their Army, and that too by their own citizen. Our Soldiers are our pride. They protect us from any form of external aggression, armed rebellion or even in the natural calamities. They live, sometime, in inhuman conditions so that we can live with peace, prosperity and enjoy this human life. But if our protectors will be treated like this, then just think what negative consequences will be on their morale. Soldiers live with pride and respect and die with it. Pride is their everything. They can survive any catastrophe of life, but they can’t swallow their disrespect.
One more video recently surfaced, when a local is seen tied up with the bonnet of a Jeep of a military convoy. It was perceived that army personal has tied him there because it will prevent the locals (more than 500 in numbers) to pelt the stones at them. Then came the liberal media, petty politicians and the human right group and termed this incident as an outrageous and inhuman. They criticized the army for their act and asked to form a commission to enquire about the whole incident.
My fellow bloggers, I am having some questions for you and after that I will end up my writing.
- What is your reaction when you will see that one part of India is seceded to Pakistan, as some local from Kashmir wants, will you still keep blogging the same way as you are doing now, or you will also feel the pain and agony?
- Who are these secessionist? How they should be dealt?
- Are our soldiers not Human? There are no Human rights for them! Anyone can pelt stone at them!
- Have you hit by a single stone pelted at you, If not, can you imagine the pain that a irregular granite pebble can inflict?
- What will happen when our soldiers will refuse to stand by our nation because of their ill-treatment?
- What will be your emotional balance, when you are humiliated by your boss in the office or teachers in the school? Can you compare the mistreatment of our soldier by their fellow citizens?
- Will not you raise your voice to support our armed force?
- Will you be a mute spectator saying that no one is in army from my family?
- Are you sure that this story of Kashmir will not be replicated in any part of the nation?
- How do you feel when you see the flag of Pakistan is waved in front of you and challenges you to see it over and over again.
- What will happen to our future generation, or are we happy with the philosophy that “live in present”?
- Isn’t our silence is a sign of our weakness?

Enjoy the weekend, for the soldiers of the Indian national Armed force, there is no such legacy.
