Let's salute to our Indian Army together, We are proud to be Indian.
Holi is the festival of colour, joy, happy time Holi, which falls in the month of Phalgun according to Hindu Calendar, which is a celebration for the arrival of spring and end of winter. Holi signifies the victory of good over evil and is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.
Entire India celebrates this festival with lots of joy and colours with their near and dear ones, but no one even bothers about the soldiers who are safeguarding our boundaries so that we can enjoy sound sleep at our home and celebrate festivals with our family and friends.
For the Indian Army, the day of Holi is just an ordinary same day like their other days, they don’t feel any change in their routine because they are on duty. It’s an ordinary day for them, as they are not with their family and friends, they are not enjoying the delicious sweets and food with them.
They are having so many feelings hidden within them but cannot express to anyone, HOW MUCH THEY MISS THEIR FAMILY & FRIENDS. Often they hide their pain by saying deep Shayari or by singing songs.
The government do make arrangements for them like colours of different colours (Gulaal), special food items, sweets, dhol etc. The soldiers celebrate the festival with their colleagues and enjoy the day.
Sometimes, taking advantage of festivals, the enemies attack them so they play HOLI of blood. They need to immediately shut all the enjoyment and take positions to face the attack, all their enjoyment vanishes just in a blink of eyes.
The Indian Army Soldiers don’t have any special days like we are enjoying. For them, HOLI, DIWALI, NEW YEAR, BIRTHDAYS and all other festivals are like the same ordinary day they are living today.
Often in their free time, the soldiers think about their family and friends, share their happy moments with colleagues, tell how their wives cook delicious food when they go home, how their children come and hug them. When they connect with them on call, how their children demand from them.
We are blessed that we can enjoy the festival with our loved ones. But for the Indian Army, the day always remains an ordinary day.
Huge respect to entire Indian Armed Force for all their sacrifices and brave deeds. Sometimes we don’t even get the exact words of appreciation for them and today also while writing this blog words are less to express the gratitude for the INDIAN ARMY.
