Dilemma 



Sarfaraz and Ravi were soldiers from two neighbouring enemy countries safeguarding their respective borders but became best friends since the time Ravi saved Sarfaraz from a wild animal when his foot was stuck in the border fence while chasing that animal.

Both the countries were at peace without any conflict so other soldiers from their battalion also sat together with them sharing food, listening and singing songs and telling about their lives,families,etc.

They didn't know what initiated war but they started preparing to encounter at battlefield after receiving orders from their seniors.

Entanglement of war brought Ravi and Sarfaraz in front of each other because battlefields are meant for death and not love of life.



They keep looking at each other aiming their guns with teary eyes when a heartless bomb exploded in between them taking away their lives and dilemma.

This post is written for Three Word Wednesday ( entanglement,death,heartless. ) and Five Sentence Fiction ( conflict).

Wish every war fought helps open eyes and realise the miracles of love!

It's always dangerous to make friends with the enemy, but even if their lives were cut short, it was worth while.

Heart wrenching and yet in some way I am very grateful that neither had to pull those terrible triggers...

This happened in the First World War (1914-1918) on the western front between the German and the Allied troops where they exchanged greetings and cigarettes. Alas they were but cannon fodder for the generals and politicians.

I don't normally reply to comments on other blogger's sites as it is considered somewhat impolite, but the Civil War scenario would have been a good one for this. I must remember (and use) my own history a bit better!

War is indeed never about the people but about ideologies and agendas. Nice!
