The great sacrifice !

Dr Ranbir Laishram
Oh, tender budding youths !
Beloved sons of the soil
Some displaced by ethnic strife
Embracing love for their motherland
With a mind to safeguard our homeland
Departed from their cozy home
On a mission, leaving their loved ones
On way to an assigned destination
Ambushed and brutally massacred
Can we call it destiny ?
What crime have they done ?
For which they were slaughtered
They are our great warriors
They laid down their precious lives
For us to see our homeland intact
Their patriotism and selfless sacrifice
For the sake of our motherland
Will continue to live in our minds
While we pray for their souls rest in peace
They left us a moral obligation
To safeguard the integrity of our homeland
And to see, their wish is fulfilled...
