Mascot Smiley Salute Illustration

Recently I was thrilled to watch the new Rajinikanth movie termed ‘PETTA’. We enjoyed the movie and it was fascinating to watch this enemy people fly around casually receiving frequent kicks and jabs from the actor. Have you seen his movie before? If not try now! One kick and lo, somebody will be up in the air. You know he cuts his birthday cake with a billhook knife. You can experience the glamour of movies in his films.

I now wondered about the difference between real life and a movie made with a story of underworld dons. On republic day or Independence Day, we should take a chance to remember the fabulous heroes off scene.

You know, only a few would find it nice to know what it is like in the real life. We are dedicating the time to recreate the atmosphere we see in films. Life doesn’t work the way you have planned it!

Keeping these all in our minds lately I happened to watch a subtle movie. I watched URI- THE SURGICAL STRIKE in the theatre. It is awe inspiring and blood boiling for any Indian born.

After the film, I turned to my mother and said, “I’ve decided to be an army officer.”

She looked at me calmly. “Or not.” I suggested.

I soon became a die-heart fan…….of whom? The real- life heroes. The super-real heroes who fight for the country.

I couldn’t stop thinking of those dauntless Indians, who don’t even hesitate to sacrifice their lives to save ours. Aren’t the anti-heroes ashamed to break such a person’s patriotism? There is no substitute for their loyalty.

Each and every gunfire that has pierced through their body sends a tremor across the country. Each and every time, it is not the enemies, but our jawans who win giving up their life for something good.

I was part of the march past that was conducted at my school. My skin tingled as I raised my hand gave a salute to the tricolour flag flying high up in the air. For every jawan who has died warring with some terrible people and for every single person who is still working hard, I do raise a proud SALUTE.


P.S. I really do dedicate especially to the jawans in my family and all the warriors of the nation

I watched that film too URI- THE SURGICAL STRIKE .I was also inspired.But if you want to become an army officer don’t just think.Become one.I dont know why your mother gave you that look.Anyway Thousands of people in India including me Should give them a big salute.
Indian Army is home to some of the bravest men in the world. Indian army is world’s third largest and its soldiers are considered best in high altitude battles. The Indian Army guards one of the most notorious international borders. Indian northern border behaves like a battle-field all around the year. But, thank god & the Indian soldiers. No one deserves the title of a ‘hero’ more than a soldier. The brave men and women at the Indian army stay away from their families, miss every significant thing in their lives and sacrifice their lives just so that you can be with your loved ones and sleep peacefully at night.



Dear Shreya,
Once again you have awestruck me with your clarity & simplicity of expression. The innocence & wisdom in your writings is really inspiring…
Keep it going kid & you ‘ll definitely reach the pinnacle one day…
P.S Thanks… The real Salute is to all those unsung Soldiers who have never been awarded/ commended but still carries on with the same dedication & devotion to duty…


thank you so much rajish mama😃. what you have said is really true as it is from your real experiences. No one deserves the title of hero other than the soldiers. we have a lot to learn from you all.😊


Nice Shreya. Really we should be the fans of real life heroes. Others r just fantasy part but they r the ones who portray the life of real life heroes. Big salute to those who are always there to keep us safe.


Thanks for the good comments abt rajni sir, it will make goosebumps to the die hard fans of him(like ramesh uncle😉)…and for the wonderful comments about the real life super heros, our jawans…
Vande matharam….


Shreya, you have taken me back to those days, my husband served at the high altitude of Sikkim. 🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳 Let our tricolor Flag fly high relentless. Proud of you my dear 😘 . May God bless you to fulfill Ur dream.♥


Dear Situ, Today I want to tell you that the context setting of your blog has turned a tad cliched. Therefore, a gingerly approach is essential here.
I proudly say that your style is absolutely magical and awesome. Yes indeed our jawans are just not heroes but demigods. It is time that the Govt take a re look at at such hybrid ranks like Sepoy, Lance Naik, Naik, Hawildar…Lieutenant. Captain Major etc. BUT MAKE A UNIFORM NOMENCLATYRE TO RANKS so that it would be a shot in the arm for our jawans. Rajeesh hope you agree with me on this
