Here, Sanket tries to share with us – “emotions of a soldier”.
To, all the ones who love me :
Tears? You know I hate them. Smiles? Yeah, that's what I've been fond of since the start. I'm going, maybe far away from everyone but still too close to hearts. There's a bond of souls we all have between us just feel it whenever you all would miss me. What about me? I have your pictures, I have your memories carved deep in my heart. Whenever I'll miss you all, I'll just stare at the pictures & smile.
Every moment when I'll be fighting for the country I'd have a sense of satisfaction that yes I have you all with me, I have your smiles with me, I have your eternal love within me and whenever I'm ready to leave for another workplace, please don't ask me if I'll be back or not? Because it's something I can't really answer. I don't want you all to think that I'm far away.
I'm close to you all, spiritually, mentally but at times not physically. And even if you want me to answer the question, I'll be back. Yes I'll be, maybe with open eyes or closed. Maybe with a pumping heart or maybe without one. Maybe in my military uniform or being wrapped up in the national flag. But I just want you all to promise me something - Papa, don't let mom cry once I'm gone because I can't bear her tears, you know? And, you too, be strong as you've always been - My support system. Isn't it? I'll not go, I swear it'll be us forever. I promise you all that you'll be proud of me one day. You'll have a smile of pride for having a son like me.
What about me? I'll be as always smiling, staring at your photos wherever I reside. Tons of love & a warm gratitude for providing me such a wonderful life. -
Yours & only yours,
Another son of mother India.
