NewsNowNation brings an exclusive verse from Mousumi K Sachdeva, who dedicates this to our martyrs.

HAIL AND RISE AGAIN (Dedicated to our martyrs)
Their cowardice act kills a braveheart
They couldn’t even spare the olive-green wife
Their hearts don’t melt to shoot
And watch a daring six-year-old depart
But they fail to realize
They can kill hundreds
To see the birth of many more hundreds
Welcoming fearlessly the cowards to martyrize
Yet, not give up their duty
To protect the country
Sacrificing sleepless days and nights
To be wrapped in the tricolour till their last rites.
