Home away from home

It is 5 years today
when my feet left this soil
My hands missed the touch of these harvest fields
My heart lurched for warm hugs of my family
And I have just 5 days to absorb this tranquility of my home
The cuddles of my little one when I recite to her good night stories
The warmth of my beloved when she feeds me her savoury cooked meal
The welcome of my friends who reminisce our childhood, share the trivia of the life.
Soon, I will pack these memories into my heart
enveloping it on with the proud Khaki to safeguard the soil that is home to all of us.


Oh did I not request you last time
to join me in fighting
with your armour of words
Against the evil one call plagiarist
A reminder once more,
Better guard and lock your sleeves
Don’t be awful then if it dares to strike
Be bold to snap off their wings
Stand for others as for yourself
And say, Dude, you are grounded!

Tribute to the Army

All assemble at once
Standing together in teams
Pledging to fight against all odds
They shout out in chorus
And disperse to get ready for the moment

The clock strikes; a minute later, 
Gun shots, explosions are heard  
Smoke engulfs the sky to grey 
Distress and panic felt and seen around 
But the team courageously marches ahead 
Next day, the front headlines states 
Bravo team,well done;danger conquered, safety is intact 
Two days later, they are forgotten 
But the team do their duty as usual 
As others are fast asleep  
Letters and distant calls from family is the only acknowledgement they receiveThe odds are many, lack of support is one 
Revered by others on the day which gave them their freedom.

Since Days

Travelling Faraway…I am waiting for that day
To meet friends and family…who are waiting there anxiously.
I know how it feels…when my senior rejects my plea.
To take a longer leave…saying I can’t let go my responsibility.
Its been a long journey…its the same for my friends with me.
Away for an important duty…it isn’t about money.
The task taken is risky…you can’t afford to be carefree.
Situations can turn fiery…each life is important and dearly.
Fighting all odds bravely…I proudly save my country.
Guarding against the enemy…Yes , I am from the Army!!!
