Remembering the martyrs on Republic Day

Kadam kadam badhaye ja, khushi ke geet gaye ja,

Yeh zindagi hai qaum ki, tu kaum pe lutaye ja......


It was another special day today not because it was a holiday but because it was a Republic Day...U read dis article further and u may feel dis gal is crazy but dat is how i m..There is something which makes me happy every Republic Day..It gives me extreme pride to watch the republic day parade and see defence personnel receiving their gallantary awards and seeing that a stream of enthusiasm runs down my blood not becoz my grandpa had also got it once not once infact twice but i feel privileged to be belonging to such a family where country is given more preference than family..

Yeah, i know it sounds fake because it is very unusual thing to say in this world of fakeness, corruption, cheating, politics and self-centered approach of people...It just seems that people have forgotten rendering selfless service to others like a mother does for her child..Oh!! i think i m talking something too impractical...

But today when i saw Major D Sreeram Kumar recieve Ashok Chakra himself and Major Mohit Sharma and Havildar Rajesh kumar recieving the highest gallantry award posthumously through their widows, i just wondered for how many days will we remember their names....Infact i feel some would not even have cared to listen to their names and be thankful to them for giving us a peaceful life when their own family needed them..may be i m also like that...I just remember it because i have emotional attachment to all those because of my defence background...But what's there in their names yaar...oh just leave it. we have so many other things to remember..I think i m getting too emotional...

But yes, my mind is all set to go ahead with the same zeal and enthusiasm that my grandpa had years back to kill the enemies during world war II, huh!!!!Are u all crazy!!!..That would not be to kill my enemies ofcourse! .. That enthusiasm would be to contribute in any small possible way i can for my country and i m striving hard to do it........Jai Hind!!!!

Another beginning with a new zeal to write...m back...


Its been six months dat i havn't posted anything on my blog...But today when i rose up in the morning something, don't know what but there was something that prompted me to write. It may be more chill in the air of Delhi or is it my new year resolution, resolution to write frequently for my blog or what i don't know....But yes i feel i am back to my world of writing.....

One thing I missed today is the sunshine and dat again prompted me to sing the famous song frm 3 idiots which is rocking the world these days
Give me some sunshine,
give me some rain,
give me another chance I wanna grow up once again....
na na na na na na and dat made me go back to my school days at Assam Rifles Public School in Shillong where we always felt dat chill in d air with rains throughout the year which just reminded me how we used to get excited when a lonnnnnng..... bell rang for sunshine holiday....yes sunshine holiday!!!

Thinking that, my heart saddened again as only one day of holiday is left after all those festivities and excitement of new year.....But i know i don't have to worry and nobody has to.... as Delhi is aways alive whether it is summer or winter........, there is a lot of more excitement to come...Lets hope for d best in d coming year...bon voyage!!
