I have always found greeting someone a “Happy Republic/ Independence Day” a little strange. Hence instead of just greeting my fellow countrymen happiness on this day when India celebrates its Republic Day I will share this little message from the mother of a martyr.
Captain Vinayak Gore’s mother gave this beautiful message on a TV show once. She had said that not everyone of us can go to the borders to fight for our nation. But when each one of us resolve to do our job, our duty with perfection we are doing a great service to our nation. We need not go on a war, we can serve our nation by being aware of our responsibilities & fulfilling them all right from our office desk.
This message from a soldiers mother has never failed to inspire me!
