(7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)

A Soldier's Wife.

She was married to a soldier,
Who left for the camp,
A month after holidays,
Word coming of war in siachen
In kashimr, soon arrived
The news of demise
Of her dear husband,
By a captian of the army,
Annoucing a compensation
Of half a million bucks,
Which was claimed
By his parents and in laws,
She was made a destitute,
Sent to her own parents,
Crying the sorrows
Of the dear departed,
Growing his child
In her bowels, despising
Her cruel fate, actually
Suffering the sacrice for the nation,
Even more than the dead soldier.

A [iece that touches the heart. So true...
really true..but nobody seems to undrstnd d despair of his wife or his mom......
Indeed, a mother's sacrifice can be likened to a soldier's too. Sad though because she was deprived and cheated and preyed upon by selfish people.
I gave this a 10 because of the cruelty suffered by women in certain parts of this world. It makes me ill, but I need not be better off than they. What right have I to this Heaven while my sisters dwell in Hell. GW62
