Abandon



"I wouldn't forgive him for his lie", he said to his father.

"But darling it was his duty and it was you who taught him that duty comes before family", he tried to pacify her. 

"He never told a lie to me in his lifetime and see the day he lied to me he died" , she broke into tears in front of a coffin wrapped in tricolors.

Her son was the Indian army soldier who died of a bomb blast while rescuing a family trapped in that house.

"We should be proud of him that he decided to abandon us and not his country" he said to her proudly. 


P.S : This post is a salute to all soldiers safeguarding Indian republic by endangering their lives. We must remember them on this special day. Happy Republic Day.
