Happy Indian Army Day 2023: Poems


A Soldier's Sacrifice
Winning the hearts of millions
Keeping their life in danger for all
Working for their country
And the great life savers

Love and respect is what they deserve
Affection is what they need
Weapons are their power
These can keep them to be demanded always for

Family and country is their strength
A smile in the face of their people can heal their pain
The million in the one
The greatest of the great
These are the people
Who do not berate

They enjoy and live in the nature to the fullest
Bath in the waterfall, rain and lake
Eat raw food they get from the trees and forest
Dress up with the fragrance of the natural floret

Sun rays strike their body direct
Clouds dance over them in specific days
Twinkling stars and the dark sky stay with them all the night
Wind is the medium of their flight

Their happiness lies in the achievement of their territory
They lie slanted on the soil
Their actual home is within the hills and Himalaya
Patriotism runs within their blood and vein

Taste is in the country's dishes
Everything has its own magic
Own people lies in our feeling
We just need to make it in our mind

Army, navy, military are always in their duty
We feel proud of these soldiers
No one can properly describe their situation and life
Everyone can only feel

Goosebumps rise when we see them
This is because of the image they have kept
Their tears are the blood drops
Their death is like losing a pure soul of our lives

No one is like them
Everything is in their own destiny
They have the most clear heart
Which have been burnt, hurt and still survived

Salute to these great personalities
And tribute to them
Our flag flies in the top of the sky
And our country is like heaven.

This is a girl of just sixteen years old
Writing her own feeling
It is just endless to describe anything of them
It just depends on one's brain and hearty thinking.
By Ankita Dolai


Salute To The Indian Soldiers    
For us they are on border,
Who can't break the order.
Who are always ready to sacrifice,
They are as hard as Himalayan ice.
Salute to the Indian soldiers!

Because of them we are alive,
And, we are secure in Indian hive.
Who always look for command,
Who have only one brand.
Salute to the Indian soldiers!

They fight in Battle without any fear,
There is no security of future year.
Who don't know the difference of day and night,
Who always ready to fight.
Salute to the Indian soldiers!

Who celebrate their festivals with bullets and guns,
We play Holi with colours;
But they play with rifles and guns.
They know only one colour which is 'Blood Red'.
Salute to the Indian soldiers!

We complain for hot and cold day,
While they stay in harsh Siachen everyday.
They are never sure of their own life,
They don't know will they ever meet his daughter, son, and wife.
Salute to the Indian soldiers!

Their village's routes are best friends of their wife.
Why Politicians play with their life?
And, why payment of their life is done by some amount of money,
Is that all our duty towards our great Indian Army?
Again and again salute to the Indian soldiers!
By Vivek Verma
