A soldier’s duty is his first responsibility. He is alert, aware and committed to his cause. Therefore whenever there is a choice to be made between duty and celebration, he always chooses duty. This needs a lot of sacrifices, courage and unshaken belief in one’s conviction. The Army training makes you such that you accept this fact with pride and honour.
Diwali, Holi, Id, Christmas and many other festivals are celebrated in Defence Forces with a lot of happiness and respect. However if someone has to perform duty then he does it smiling. He knows that his duty safeguards lives of millions in our country.
So, while celebrating, spare a thought for our brave and valiant soldiers guarding us from evil forever. Thank you O’ dear soldier. May you be happy wherever you are.
