Solders Through the Ages…..

Soldiers’ fate through the ages …………………..

Our God and soldiers we alike adore,

Only at the brink of danger; not before;

After deliverance, both alike requited.

Our Gods forgotten, and our soldiers slighted.

— Francis Quarles (Emblem)

हमारे सैनिक व भगवान, हैं दोनो एक समान.
आपदा में हम करें स्मरण और दें सम्मान .
विपदा टली, और इन दोनो का एक मान ,
भगवान को भूलें, और सैनिक बने नगण्य,
खो कर अपनी जान…………………………..

((मेरा भारत महान – मेरा भारत महान!!)This pun intended!!) Translated by ………. Shiv Rana

About Shiv Rana

Retirement life is series of transition: from Olive Green to civvies, being woken up a buddy to fetching morning milk from the milk booth. And now trying to adjust with new-normal due to pandemic - CORONA.
