Brother – in – Arms

For Col Neeraj Sood

(who laid down his life yesterday in J&K while chasing militants)

Rest In peace.

O! My brother-in-arms.

For you wished very young,

To be thus destined.

Expect not your countrymen,

Or political masters

To mourn or give a trime.

For them your life is yet another brine.


TV channels will show a flick or two,

So will print media do.

But all will be forgotten

In another day or two.

Only your family will carry the cross

Of missing son, brother

Husband or father

For rest of their life.

Rest In peace.

O! My brother-in-arms.

For you wished very young,

To be thus destined.
