I realised that in the time of empty promises, rampant corruption and a general drive towards self gratification among many people, if there is anyone who is above all this and actually cares about our country and people (to the extent of willingly dying for their land) then that is only our army and other forces. (Obviously talking about those who are true to their duty.)
They are the reason we are safe especially when so many are trying to walk in and wreak havoc on our land. And likewise worldwide.
While there is a profound sense of respect towards them among most people but unfortunately there are still some who have the heart to say mean things about them and this number isn’t that small it seems. These are some of the things they say –
- It’s their job – They believe that it’s their job to lay down their lives for their nation and hence no big deal. It’s fascinating that their sense of duty and love towards their motherland run so deep that they willingly offer their lives despite many of them being more than qualified enough for better paying jobs and yet they choose this life.
- They get facilities – “So what they’re in the army? Not everyone fights in the war and even the ones who do, they get so many facilities, it’s almost unfair,” someone had once said to me. This person boasts of being a big humanitarian. They should say this to their family members who are left behind. Can facilities compensate for a living person who dies? And because of our awesome system, many of the families don’t even get that.
- Thanklessness – Above points boil down to the fact that these people seem so utterly thankless towards those who actually care about their safety and once again are dying for it just so they could make these “enlightening” statements in the comfort of their homes. Not to mention living a very difficult life and many even in the harshest conditions. These people cry a great deal if there are attacks everywhere except when it’s on the base of forces. What’s with this thanklessness? Do they not deserve even a tiny bit of their love?
- Jokes – these days there is a trend of making sick jokes on the struggle of army a lot of times to get back at their supporters. What’s daunting is that many of them tirelessly support animal rights of a select group of animals, consider humanity their only relegion and even advocate for human rights of various criminals but turn a blind eye towards the pain and struggles of the forces. And on top of that they make jokes! How can you be humanitarian for one cause and ignore others? It doesn’t work that way.
Whatever on earth is wrong with such people? I mean wouldn’t it be disheartening and soul crushing for these men to hear these things? Disgusting.
