Is this worth it to risk your life as a soldier?We all are aware of turmoil going in Kashmir, I do not want to argue who is wrong, who is right there. Every one has right to have their own view and this will remain controversial always.
I am discussing what is left to the soldiers to motivate them to risking their lives every moment. I just have a small chat with an old friend( Boy posted in kashmir these days), he is living far from home, in very stressed situation. When I called just to make him feel light and on asking how are you dear? His reply was heartrending, "Jivan ka arth dhund raha hun di"?(He was junior to me in NDA coaching.)
I tried laughing it off, but he was damn serious in his words." I am not with my family, I am not able to help my ill parents, I am not able to meet my friends, I am not able to do anything for them."
I just tried making him feel easy and turned direction towards old days and fun we had within our group.
Conversation (and news I read) left me with a thought, are their sacrifice is worth it? They are getting facilities, they are feeling proud among themselves but who else cares?
